PLDT DSL increases bandwidth allocation.

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: April 22, 2005

PLDT DSL, PLDT DSL, PLDT myDSL, PLDT DSL, PLDT myDSL Looks like the stories are true. I just checked my PLDT DSL speed at home last night and I was averaging around 480Kbps. That means my previous 386Kbps connection now tops at 512Kbps. Here's the supposed upgrade that was recently made by PLDT. 512Kbps / 256Kbps for plan 1995 768Kbps / 384Kbps for plan 2500 1mbps / 384Kbps for plan 3000 You can call them up at 171 to confirm this. Sweet deal, huh? :)

Relevance: 99%      Posted on: July 3, 2014

In keeping with the steady rise of demand for high-speed broadband internet in the country, the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) has released a statement that the telco is planning to invest $2M to upgrade the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) cable system 100 Gigabit standards, increasing the bandwidth capacity by 200% in the process. Back in 2007, PLDT is one of 19 multinational parties that signed up to invest on a 20,000-kilometer, high-bandwidth fiber optic submarine cable that will connect South East Asia regions to America. The trans-Pacific link, which is later dubbed as the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) Cable System,…

PLDT myDSL Upgrades Bandwidth Speed

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: May 28, 2006

I've been wondering why almost 2 weeks now, my DSL connection has been acting up on me. It connects just fine but in a few minutes, there's no internet then it comes back again then gone another minute. When I called up the customer rep the other day to downgrade my account, I explained to them that one of the reasons why I wanted to downgrade wast the broken promise they made last January. Just now, while experience the same irritating problem with the dsl going on and off, I tried to check on my bandwidth speed at PLDTPlay and…

Free PLDT DSL upgrades this January

Relevance: 77%      Posted on: January 5, 2006

My PLDT myDSL line went kaput just around lunch today and was only able to re-connect just now. One thing I learned about PLDT's customer support is that they don't have one or you can't get to talk to one. What I'd do is call sales and inquire about upgrading my DSL bandwidth or ask for any new promos. Then, I'll segue into asking if they could connect me to their support personnel at the NOC. Works almost all the time. Anyway, going back to the DSL upgrades, the customer rep did confirm that PLDT will be doing another round…

Speedtest: Location-based bandwidth meter

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: March 12, 2007

This is not just any other bandwidth meter around. It tracks your location, including your ISP and upstream provider. You choose which server to connect when measuring your bandwidth. Here's my results for my PLDT myDSL 1995. It's supposed to be rated at 1.2Mbps. The connecting server I used was Bayantel. The system also saves a whole bunch of data from other users so you can dig them up, get the average for your area and even compare the performances of other ISPs. This one screen shot report I got the the Metro Manila area: Interestingly, Destiny is topping the…

Anyone else running PLDT WatchPad?

Relevance: 72%      Posted on: November 6, 2009

I got this DVD installer in the mail last week for PLDT WatchPad. Been seeing the ads as well on TV lately and was wondering if this is a free or paid service from PLDT to all its myDSL subscribers. Are there other PLDT myDSL subscribers getting their DVD installers in the mail too? I read that this is available if you subscribe to myDSL Plan 999, 1995 and 3000. This is streaming video so only makes sense for PLDT to offer it to high-bandwidth plans. Available channels include PBO, CNBC, MTV, GO, Animax, CNN, GMA7, Cartoon Network and National…

PLDT upgrades myDSL Plan 3000 to 5Mbps

Relevance: 67%      Posted on: June 13, 2011

Good news to all PLDT myDSL subscribers on Plan 3000 -- bandwidth upgrades have been rolling to all subs as early as first week of this month. The plan was bumped up from 3Mbps to 5Mbps. Subscribers are getting offers of the free upgrade as long as they continue their subscriptions and lock it for another year. So far, only the Plan 3000 are being offered the upgrades while the lower tiers have not been extended the same. This move might have been prompted by the recent offerings of other competing ISPs that offer 3Mbps and 5Mbps at prices between…

PLDT myDSL Upgrades anew

Relevance: 66%      Posted on: August 9, 2006

This is probably the second time PLDT myDSL upgraded their bandwidth offerings this year. Just saw an ad at Manila Bulletin that their newly re-branded residential DSL packages are getting a bit of a boost. Here are the new bandwidth speeds: myDSL Xperience Php 999/month from 384Kbps to 512 Kbps myDSL Xcite Php 1,995/month from 768 Kbps to 1.2Mbps myDSL Xcel Php 3,000/month from 2Mbps to 3 Mbps Must be real tough competition going on we don't know about. Heard that PLDT had a 7% drop in profits compared to last years. But just how much of their revenues are…

PLDT has introduced a more affordable plan under their myBro fixed wireless internet services. A new PLDT myBro Plan 499 plan offers up to 512Kbps of WiMax service with a monthly bandwidth cap of only 3GB.

During that time, they introduced two plans -- a myBro Plan 799 with up to 512Kbps unlimited internet at Php799/month and a myBro Plan 999 with up to 1Mbps unlimited internet…

Wi-Tribe offers Php200 per GB bandwidth

Relevance: 64%      Posted on: May 10, 2010

New telco player, Wi-Tribe, has finally addressed their bandwidth strategy by offering some sort of pay-per-use. Aside from doubling up the bandwidth cap to 6GB, you're able to top up your bandwidth usage by Php200 per GB. The current 4G packages include: 1Mbps @ Php998 and 2Mbps @ Php1,998 per month. I know that the Philippines has one of the most expensive rates in terms of bandwidth but Php200 per GB seems very high. If that's the case, then they should just bump up the speeds to 5Mbps or even 10Mbps since it's consumption-based (downloading 1GB of data in 10…
