    To avoid confusion P3,699/month unlimited 50Mbps is actually 3,500/month for unlimited 50Mbps, Cignal and telephone plus a 199/month fee for 1 IPTV.

    PLDT will eventually do speed upgrades it’s just a matter of when (mga 2050 siguro! Haha). Come to think of it the best value for your money internet plan right now is not really Converge but Globe Fiber which offers 100mbps unlimited connection for 2899. PLDT just have the upper hand when it comes to infrastructure, they have significantly broader fiber coverage and significantly more subscribers. Perhaps the speedboost was PLDT’s way of testing if their network would be able to support it if they made an upgrade.

    Got the gift as well. Plan 100Mbps. According to some online posts, the double the speed is just a day promo and a permanent speed bump is given for 20Mbps below subscribers but not 2x the speed.

    while PLDT has the upper hand in infrastructure, they have the most lousiest speed of them all.

    nobody will suddenly clog the network when speed is increased..

    nobody will suddenly download all movies or stream movies altogether...

    Is anyone on any of these Fibr Plans?
    • ₱999 10Mbps
    • ₱1995 20Mbps
    • ₱3000 50Mbps
    • ₱4000 10Mbps
    • ₱5000 100Mbps
    • ₱3500 50Mbps
    • ₱5800 100Mbps
    • ₱8800 200Mbps
    These are old plans that PLDT conveniently forgot to correct since 2015.

    If you're done with your lock-in period, you should be able to re-contract with the updated pricing and bandwidth allocation. Sadly, the customer would have to keep an eye on these bundle changes. It's seldom that you get a call from PLDT announcing that they're going to upgrade your connection (which I actually did for my then MyDSL at home).

    The company I work for was stuck in a decade-old 64kbps PLDT leased line with the old pricing. They eventually got wise and switched to Converge (then called Comclark) and for the same amount that PLDT was charging, we got 2 mbps. That was maybe 10 years ago or whereabouts and it's been gradually upgraded through the years. It's now 15mbps.

    My brother told me that it was PLDT who initiated our upgrade from myDSL to Fibr... maybe it depends on the area where they will do this. Unsure too if the upgrade had given us a new lock in period. Although I told my brother to keep tabs on the plans available so we can upgrade if we have to.

    hey guys! I applied to PLDT Home Fibr last Sunday and they sent me an email saying that processing may take from 24-48 hrs. How was your experience with the application? Did you hear back from them 2 days after?

    You're overpaying. You may want to ask PLDT to move you to their Plan 1899 that has the same speed as your Plan 1995.

    PLDT should simplify their Fibr plans. They're just all over the place without any sort of logic.

    more like 24-48 days! Seriously you have to continuously bug them for them to take action. Once you're application get's approved, they would have to check if fibr is available in your area. My advice is look for the nearest fiber box in your area, and give the box code to PLDT.
