PLDT Home brings subscribers its fastest speeds yet with the new Fiber Plans

What would you do if you have more speed to power your digital lifestyle? What if you could have the opportunity to experience up to twice the speed you’re getting now? That can be a reality now as PLDT Home rolls out the biggest speed upgrade with the newest Fiber Plans this February.   

Faster Fiber Plans Yet

The new PLDT Home Fiber Unli Plans are double the previous speed offers and can now reach up to 600 Mbps for as low as P2699 monthly. 

What’s more, all these new Home Fiber plans get faster speeds with the same price as previous plans. Now, that’s a treat especially for the new subscribers. Meanwhile, existing subscribers will need not apply for any plan upgrade to get the same faster speeds as they will automatically get the new Fiber plan speeds starting this month. 

What does it mean for PLDT Home Fiber customers?

Families at home with dynamic digital lifestyles will highly benefit from the faster internet speeds of the new PLDT Home Fiber plans:

  • For those who love to stream their movies and TV series: Fiber Unli Plan 1699 with 200 Mbps makes streaming SD and HD content on a few devices smooth and seamless. Fiber Unli Plan 2099’s 400 Mbps allows smooth streaming of HD and Ultra HD content on more demanding devices like smart TVs and PCs. The full power of Fiber Unli Plan 2699’s 600 Mbps speed makes streaming up to 4K HD and even 8K on the latest smart TVs easier than ever.
  • For those who need to work online: The 200 Mbps from Fiber Unli Plan 1699 makes video conferencing easier with none of the dreaded lagging and dropping out, and users can also download all the files they need in minutes or even seconds. Fiber Unli Plan 2099’s 400 Mbps is there for bigger download demands, and for those who need to work with the largest files all the time, Fiber Unli Plan 2699 is the ideal setup.
  • For those who demand better gaming support: Fiber Unli Plan 1699’s 200 Mbps will give a lag-free gaming experience on one or two devices such as a PC and/or gaming console. For more devices at home, 400 Mbps from Fiber Unli Plan 2099 will maintain that low latency. For those with the biggest gaming setups at home with multiple devices, Fiber Unli Plan 2699’s 600 Mbps will easily power it all.
  • For those into content creation: Fiber Unli Plan 1699 allows for quick and easy content uploading to platforms like Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and more. For streamers on platforms like Twitch, Fiber Unli Plan 2099 and 2699 ensure a consistent livestreaming experience at all times.
Whole-home coverage with Fiber Plus Plans

On top of the improved Fiber Unli Plans, PLDT Home has also upgraded its Fiber Plus Plans, which come with three Mesh WiFi devices to eliminate wi-fi dead spots in larger homes.

Mesh WiFi creates a wider wi-fi coverage within the home, with devices only needing to connect to one network no matter where they are in the area.

The fastest fixed network in the Philippines

The launch of the new PLDT Home Fiber Plans plays a big role in PLDT Home’s status as the fastest broadband in the Philippines. PLDT Home has consistently received this recognition in global internet testing firm Ookla’s regular rankings. 

Meanwhile, the Philippines has also steadily climbed up the Speedtest Global Index over the past year, jumping two places higher in the January 2023 edition with a median download speed of 88.13 Mbps. This rise is due in part to PLDT Home’s contributions to the constant improvement of the country’s network infrastructure.

ATMs at 7-Eleven reaches Davao City with 2,000th ATM installation

7-Eleven ATM is finally in Davao City! BDO and Land Bank transactions at zero transaction fees; P10 fee for other banks still the lowest in the market!

Philippine Seven Corporation (PSC), the exclusive licensor of 7-Eleven in the Philippines, continues to deliver safe and convenient banking wherever you are in the country, 24/7, now with 2,000 7-Eleven stores with ATMs installed.

This marks the entry of ATMs in 7-Eleven in Davao City, made possible by the partnership with Pito AxM Platform, Inc. (PAPI), the local subsidiary of Japan’s Seven Bank, Ltd.

“We started the expansion of our ATM network in the Visayas last June, and we now have over 150 ATMs installed across stores in Cebu City. Now, we are proud to provide ATM coverage in the island of Mindanao, marking our latest milestone in our effort to provide ATM convenience to our communities nationwide,” said Jose Victor Paterno, President and CEO of PSC.

This goes to show that PSC and PAPI’s plan to deploy additional cash-recyclers in over 2,500 7-Eleven stores nationwide by the end of 2022 is right on track and customers can expect more partnerships with other local banks to be announced soon.

In February 2020, PAPI partnered with PSC to install, operate, and maintain ATMs at 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines. As part of its commitment to sustainability, these ATMs are equipped to be cash-recyclers. Each also has a unique feature of adapting the ATM screen interface depending on the customer’s bank for familiarity and ensuring great customer experience.

“The demand for ATM access in the Philippines continues to grow as we have observed during the past few years. We hope to make bank transactions more accessible and practical for Filipinos from different areas, which is why we intended to start our installations in Mindanao before the end of 2022,” said Masanori Sakaguchi, President of PAPI.

“The ATMs offer a pioneering solution to our cash handling requirements.  There is no need to go to the bank to deposit sales for the day, allowing store operators to focus more on serving our customers.  Our deposits then fund the withdrawals of both bank and non-bank clients.  This innovation brings us closer in fulfilling our mission of providing modern convenience in the communities where we are present,” Lawrence De Leon, PSC’s Head of  Finance said.

Cardholders of BDO, the largest bank in the Philippines, and newest partner bank Land Bank, can still enjoy free withdrawals at 7-Eleven stores.  Meanwhile, the P10 fee for other banks remains the lowest charge in the market.

“Speedtest Awards, presented by Ookla, are reserved for an elite delegation of network operators that have delivered exceptional internet performance and coverage within a market. It is our pleasure to present PLDT with the award for Fastest Broadband in the Philippines. This recognition is testament to their exceptional performance in Q1-Q2 2022 based on Ookla's rigorous analysis of consumer-initiated tests taken with Speedtest” said Doug Suttles, Ookla CEO.

PLDT Home also clocked the top speeds in 15 major areas in the Philippines, besting all other major telco providers. These areas include: Quezon City, Pasig City, Davao City, Cagayan de Oro, Bulacan, Bacolod, Cainta, Baguio City, Pasay City, Iloilo City, Lucena, Malabon City, Valenzuela City, Marikina City and Batangas.

Home in Fastest Mode with PLDT
PLDT Home, as the country’s leading digital services provider, seeks stay on top of the ever-changing digital shift by continuously delivering the most powerful and fastest fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network to its over 3.1 million fiber subscribers. 

In July, PLDT boosted its international network capacity through its US-Transpacific Jupiter cable system infrastructure which is expected to provide greater capacity in multiple Terabits per second. This benefits PLDT customers with growing demands for digital services and better digital experience.  

PLDT is also the only telco provider in the Philippines that can deliver up to 10,000 Mbps fiber-optic service. This puts the country alongside first-world nations that have access to such ultra-fast home interne speeds such as South Korea, Japan, Sweden, Norway, Italy, New Zealand, and USA. 

All these innovations are powered by PLDT’s widest network with its fiber infrastructure expanded to over 803,000 kilometers, extending its reach to 15.5 million homes passed, and a total fiber capacity of 6.25 million ports.
