PLDT DSL Can't Access Web Sites

I'm unable to visit some web sites via the PLDT myDSL internet connection.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

For example, some servers hosted by ASmallOrange (ASO) can't be reached via PLDT DSL. But other sites around the world are able to access those ASO hosted websites.

I requested a trace route from those ASO servers to a PLDT DSL ip address and got this:

traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 38 byte packets
1 ( 0.537 ms 0.563 ms 0.485 ms
2 ( 0.360 ms 0.336 ms *
3 ( 0.722 ms 0.341 ms 0.363 ms
4 ( 0.487 ms 0.476 ms 0.489 ms
5 ( 212.844 ms 212.934 ms 212.828 ms

The highlighted numbers shows that there's a bottleneck somewhere between PLDT and the ASO server. Using, it appears that can't be reached. Great. I hope the problem is resolved soon.

For site administrators who are myDSL subscribers: spread your sites across different web host providers. It also helps to have a back-up internet account.
