With PLDT’s recent Super Saver Line promo, can the Philippines stand to claim the cheapest internet service in the whole of south-east asia? Bundled with a fixed landline, PLDT’s Vibe promo comes out as low as Php160 per month (roughly $3/month).
I’m not sure about broadband (Singapore & Hong Kong still rules the arena of big bandwidth pipes) though.
Remember that just about 5 years ago, a DDU (dedicated dial-up) account could cost you as much as Php3,500 a month. At that price now, you can hook up with PLDT or Globe and get as much as 2Mbps of broadband connection.
At Php160, the internet prepaid card industry will soon eventually be a thing of the past.
