Hi Jheng,

We are experiencing difficulties with our uplink, which is why telnet to Livewire isn't working right now. We hope to have this fixed soonest.

PLDT is now terminating its "telepwede" prepaid landline product and is re-branding it as "sulit talk" with a 173% increase in price.

Consequently, Livewire! Manila BBS is terminating its dialup access effective today, and will continue its bbs operations with 16 telnet nodes available, 24x7.
