    Curious - how did you configure your IPv6? I tried to enable it on my Asus router — nothing.

    ^ It's not yet fully rolled out on all subs I think. In the meantime, just enable IPv6 on your router and maybe in the next few days or weeks, they will assign you an IPv6 address.

    1gbps is as fast as their last-mile fibre equipment can deliver.

    Technically, they can deploy multiple fibre cables to a single home to support multi-gigabit speeds, but these are usually reserved for or can only be afforded by corporate or commercial customers.

    It is cheaper to get the 1Gbps from PLDT Enterprise on a 24 month contract at 12,500/month than PLDT Home on a 36 month contract at 20,000/month.

    You are most likely a business owner if that is your price range so you qualify.

    Converge has 1Gbps (two 500Mbps Plan Xtreme 7000) at 14,000.

    Globe has 1Gbps at 9,499 but it is capped at 6TB (upload & download). That averages out 200GB/day. I cannot see an average household consuming 6TB/month

    This speed boost was already reported by TPC members since September pa using that link.

    Was officially announced yesterday.

    Just reviewed the email that PLDT had sent me and it states there that it is permanent. Hoping it is true though.

    So, I already had my speed boost for a couple of months now. I recently received another text message telling me of another speed boost, but this time on my other phone line. Since I only have one subscription, I'm thinking this was a mistake. But, I got another message that's saying I'm missing out on the speed boost on my other line. I called the hotline and they said, I definitely have a speed boost for the other line. I think if I do that speed boost thing on my other line, I'll be charged with another subscription :cautious:


    One more thing. I can confirm my IP hasn't changed in 10 months now. Anyone else noticed theirs?

    Do we need to restart the ONU for the speedboost? I already got the text message but it seems that the speed is still the same :unsure:

    Is the speed boost being done by batch? How come I have not received any text/email on any free speed boost upgrade :(. I have been using PLDT Fibr for 3 years already.

    Hmm, you may try this link to activate your speed boost.
