PLDT Plan 999

Looks like PLDT is aggressively selling its DSL service, now with a residential package of Php999 per month (PLDT Plan 999) at speeds of 384Kbps. This is the former bandwidth allocation for their Plan 1995 which is now at 512Kbps.

On top that, their Php788 per month for Smart WiFi is being heavily promoted in the provinces.

The Plan 999 was also an old promo for students only but has now been expanded to cover regular residential subscribers. With the introduction of DSL Plan 999, I think PLDT will soon be upgrading existing subscribers to higher bandwidths. Much more that Globe Telecoms is pushing to 2Mbps for Php2,995 (Explore Gold Plan).

The problem here though is that PLDT is so aggressive in selling broadband connections to potential new customers that it has already forgotten about the existing ones. Just read the comments over at the Smart WiFi entry.

I am sure they know that it’s cheaper to retain new customers than to get new ones. Oh, I forgot they have that 1-year lock-up clause.

    4½ years after the original post date of this entry, I’m wondering how PLDT’s 384kbps (entry-level) service is faring against the others? and how their service is for the consumer?

    Anyone happy/sad about using PLDT’s Phone+DSL right now? Would appreciate your sincere comments!

    Thanks..

    guys, ano maganda gawin dito sa PLDT? nag apply ako ng PLDT kasi nakita ko ad nila yung bundle na 768kbps internet at landline. 1299 yung monthly. nag down ako ng 1400, at yung remaining na 700php sa bill na lang daw yun. eto na at dumating na ang bill, nagtataka ako bakit may SERVICE AND OTHER CHARGES pa na 2300+? hindi naman sinabi at hindi nakalagay sa print ad nila. so bale ang bill ko ngayon ay nasa 3.4k plus lahat kasama na dun ang remaining balance sa downpayment ko which is 700, at yung monthly na 1299 at yung EVAT pa. ineexpect ko kasi yung babayaran ko ay 700, plus yung bill ko na 1299.

    saan kaya pwede ireklamo ito? hindi naman nakalagay sa ad nila na ganun ang babayaran mo. bottom line is nangloloko sila.

    ireklamo ko kaya sa DTI yan or kung saan pwede. correct me if im wrong. para na rin sa ibang mga mabiktima nila.

    I think baka sinama na nila yung router? may options kasi don sa brochure na nabasa ko..nag avail ako nyan kasi entitled daw kami mag upgrade from 990 to 1299. 786kbps ang speed. Kaso di ko pinadagdag yung router. yung modem naman from siemens ang ipapalit nila sa dating p-600 series. I hope di yan mangyari sa akin.

  5. Buknoy says:

    hmmm ganun ba? ang alam ko yun na yung downpayment ko na 1800 eh. modem lang naman meron sa akin yung kulay puti na maliit. kaya nagtataka ako dun sa SERVICE AND OTHER CHARGES hindi naman nilagay sa brochure, at hindi naman din inexplain nung taga PLDT sakin na meron pang charge na 2400+. at walang nakalagay sa brochure na binigay sakin.

    update ko na lang kayo kasi pupuntahan ko ang PLDT at tatanong ko bakit nagkaganoon since hindi naman inexplain sa akin ng mabuti ng agent nila. false advertising talaga. reklamo ko sila sa DTI eh.

  6. Necronomicron says:

    I think baka nakalimutan ng taga pldt na lagyan ka ng wireless router. nasa 1,400-1,600 yung price non.. dalawang brand kasi yon na pag pipilian mo..sige mas mabuti pang pumunta ka na lang sa pldt. minsan kasi mga agent sa phone shunga shunga eh di alam mga pinag sasabi. next time pag may tumawag sayo kunin mo ang name para in case na magkaproblema pwede mo syang balikan. tandaan mo yung time and date of call mo kasi naka record yan pwede nilang ma trace.

  7. Buknoy says:

    hi po Necronomicron. thanks sa reply. kasama ba sa package na 1299 yung wireless router? wala naman sila sinabi sakin. at hindi ko rin need ng wireless router kasi wala naman ako laptop.

    puntahan ko na lang muna ang PLDT para malinawan ang lahat. sana ako lang ang biktima nila at hindi na maulit sa iba.

    i’ll be back. good night. ^^

    We applied for PLDT myDSL. The contractor installed the connection wires and put a router (XyXEL). The Problem is they did not setup the internet connection. They said there is a problem in username and password and they will be back or the PLDT would be the one to set it up. Until now no one is coming to fix the connection.

    ako po aay nka pldt myDSL plan 999 at may Linksys na router for wi-fi connection.. yung bill ko po ba eh 999/month parin? (excluding the phone calls made)…

    pls help me naman po…

    d po ako makatulog sa kakaisip kung totoo ba yung complaint nung lalaki sa news..

    thanks..

  14. Necronomicron says:

    I think kaya ganon ang bill nya dahil sa PLDT Internet vibe. may bayad kasi yon. not unlike yung bundle internet na 999 fixed yon..ganyan di ako and naka wifi na for 1 year same rate lang din.
