PLDT goes 100Mbps and adds wider coverage through fiber optic service

Written by | Careers, Internet, Telecom

A lot of us would have loved to see connection speeds that move from the kbps to the Mbps range, this means faster streaming, uploading, downloading, better connection during voice calls, and so on. Hence, as an expansion of previous efforts to better improve the country’s hi-speed connection, the Philippines’ Telecommunications titan PLDT has now have plans to add additional territories on the list of areas that would have Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Internet services.

Nearly a year ago, we have read about PLDT saying this “PLDT Fibr will give our subscribers the ultimate multi-screen, multi-media experience,” said PLDT President and Chief Executive Napoleon L. Nazareno. ”You can expect crystal-clear high-definition content on your HDTV as well as hassle-free simultaneous high-speed browsing.”

The service is definitely targeted to hit the relatively “High Income neighborhoods” as this technology isn’t something we could avail with ease due to it’s costly nature. With plans ranging from PHP 3500 to a whopping PHP 20k per month, we would really need to think thrice about availing this.

Posted on the same website as we read it from in the past, PLDT states that they’re increasing coverage to cater to the following areas (still high-end): East, West, North, and Northeast Green Hills, Acropolis, Green Meadows, La Vista, and Valle Verde in Quezon City; Alabang Hills, Alabang 400, and Hillsborough in Alabang, Muntinlupa; and Dasmariñas Village, San Lorenzo Village, and Urdaneta Village in Makati.

given this type of increase in coverage in a small amount of time (less than a year), we might just see further improvements in other areas soon then moving into the highly urbanized provincial areas. with the completion of the Asia-Pacific submarine cable system – Napoleon Nazareno, PLDT president and chief executive, said the $400-million Asia Submarine-Cable Express is the largest-capacity international submarine cable system ever to land in the Philippines. If we could see more of these kinds of projects, it wouldn’t be that long before we progress in terms of our telecommunications projects as this system links a host of improving and already high-end countries in Asia such as Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and China.

So if you happen to live in the areas mentioned above, it’s high time you went on ahead and subscribed to the service by visiting this website www.fibr.pldthome.com.
