My friend was "lucky" to be one of the few to get PLDT fibr first, they were paying 3,500 for 8mbps back then. I asked him recently how's the speed and got surprised that it was still 8. I told him he could get 50 at 2899, PLDT changed him over the new plan. Methinks PLDT is sitting on a huge /early/ adopter who could care less about speeds and are paying old prices. No wonder they target new tech @ the rich first. They also helped pay for rollout for us mass-market consumers so I don't mind. Globe's offering is better but they're nowhere to be found. Mas nakikita ko pa converge TBH. PLDT's Netflix server has been a huge PITA during the holidays, my 50mbps can only stream 5-15mbps, when viewing Netflix content. Quality changes are noticeable or stops altogether. Speed tests are normal, btw. Reflects the growing pains of Netflix in the US when it was new. Seems like everyone's on board. PLDT might need to request for a second CDN (yes, Netflix gives them to ISP for free). Globe has Cebu and Manila CDNs. They can offer x2 speed upgrade all year long and no one's going to be the wiser, until such time that your resources (backend) are under stress (Netflix, case in point). Load management is key. advertised speed is no longer a major factor, I'd like to think we graduated from that thinking.
