Slow Internet connectivity on March 4 PM due to Preginet downtime

To the UPM Community,
 
Please expect a slow Internet connectivity on March 4, 2014 (Tuesday) because of the downtime of internet connection with Preginet (one of Internet service providers of UPM).  
 
The eUP has arranged with ASTI-DOST for an increased bandwidth allocation from Preginet for UP Campuses including UP Manila. Preginet will perform testing during this period  of our fiber optic connection prior to the upgrading of the bandwidth allocation.
 
Please expect a slower Internet connection in the afternoon of March 4, 2014.  During this period, UPM network will still have Internet connection c/o PLDT, the other ISP of UPM.
 
The UPM IMS apologizes for the anticipated inconvenience.  Hopefully, this bandwidth upgrade will translate to a better service as regards Internet connectivity of the students, faculty and staff of UP Manila.
 
Thank you.
