Yesterday marks the launch of the PLDT Home Bro Ultera which currently consists of three wireless broadband plans powered by TD-LTE (Time-Division Duplex Long Term Evolution) connection designed for home use.
If you pay close attention to the picture above, you’ll notice that there’s an “xxGB recommended usage for optimum speed” on each of the plans under the new Home Bro Ultera. This is actually a subtle reminder about the monthly cap on PLDT’s new wireless LTE broadband services which, if you go beyond it, may result to a 30% decrease on your internet speed.
Another thing to note here is the one-time initial cash-out (possibly for the router) that you’d have to pay on top of monthly service fee and activation fee. Home Bro Ultera BASIC subscribers will have to shell out extra Php999, while Home Bro Ultera MAX and Home Bro Ultera PRO users will have to pay Php1,599 and Php1,999 respectively to get the service.
Finally, PLDT will be providing discount to existing Canopy and WiMax subscribers who wish to upgrade to the Home Bro Ultera. Instead of paying the usual MSF, upgraders will only have to pay Php1,299 if they switch to the Home Bro Ultra MAX and Php1,699 for the Home Bro Ultera PRO.
