Fast internet speed is something that Filipinos can only dream of, among other things. Robotic voice during video calls, pixelated photos, and the seemingly neverending loading circle when waiting for videos to buffer are the common problems we have to face daily, especially now that work and school is done remotely. Now that customer service lines are tied up and internet service providers are scrambling to meet everyone’s requests, we can do nothing but complain. Unless, of course, you’re Liza Soberano.
After complaining about her slow AF internet speed, one competing internet provider came to the rescue and gave her a whopping 300mbps upgrade. As she said, “Lag? I don’t know her.” Of course, the internet all chanted “sana all” like a choir, and came up with these funny tweets and memes:
She is THE Liza Soberano after all
we all know this isnt because pldt provides better service its because shes liza soberano https://t.co/YQMMgW49i6

Given Liza’s reach and influence, we understand why any service provider would jump at the chance to show them what they can do. Plus, it’s already common for celebrities to enjoy such privileges. But this leads to a deeper discussion: it’s apparent that they can provide a fast internet speed, so why aren’t we experiencing the same thing?
Proof that customer service in the Philippines is a privilege. Liza complained about her internet connection with converge and Pldt came and installed a new line in no time. pic.twitter.com/pb8h0naAHy

PLDT really came through with Liza’s upgrade. They said: let me save you from the dreadful loop when watching videos!
PLDT simping for Liza
Us: please pick up the phone…
Let’s just accept the fact that we don’t have the same goddess-like beauty that Liza Soberano has.
Imagine thinking that having at least 7MBPS is already fast when there’s Liza at home enjoying her 300MBPS speed. Refreshing for the nth time – baka bumilis yung internet when you refresh it.
Foretelling the future
pldt you simp!! pic.twitter.com/GcfnOpUDyw

Maybe Liza manifested this internet boost, as seen in one of her endorsements. Should we start drinking Birch Tree as well? For stronger bones and faster internet.
PLDT, bekenemen! My pldt wifi doesn’t reach 1 MBPS for downloading and/or uploading everytime I test it…ONE. 😂 https://t.co/tVlF6AoOGM

It’s quite comforting to know that other celebrities, like Bela Padilla, are in the same situation as us. How is she living with a speed that can barely make it to 1MPBS? :( When she said “bekenemen”, we felt that.
Okay so PLDT came to my house char practice lang

Rehearsing until we get to share the same exciting news online. While we wait for faster internet speed and better services by internet providers, the only people coming to our homes are the repairmen who will address connectivity issues. Relate ka rin ba?
