PLDT vs Globe vs Converge: Unlimited Fiber Internet Plans in the Philippines
There are currently three major providers of Fiber Internet in the country — PLDT, Globe Telecom, and Converge ICT. We list down their available consumer unlimited fiber plans and compare which one is the best bang for the buck.
Fiber Internet may sound a bit pricey, but it offers a more reliable connection in inclement weather, not to mention greater bandwidth and faster speeds. We compiled the available unlimited fiber plans and plotted them into the table, for your reference:
While Globe offers consumer fiber speeds at up to 1Gbps, these are not unlimited and are data capped. Depending on your location, they will also offer 10Mbps, 15Mbps, or 20Mbps speeds at the same price point. Converge, on the other hand, offers a wide range of unlimited internet options from Php1,500 to the most expensive at Php7,000.
PLDT, meanwhile, offers far more limited and quite expensive plans even when we take into consideration their ongoing holiday promo — their unlimited 1Gbps plan is priced at an astounding Php20,000. It’s also worth noting that both PLDT and Globe’s Fiber plans come with a landline bundled in the package.
With this, Converge wins the lower price segment by offering 25Mbps and 35Mbps plans at Php1,500 and Php1,599, respectively, while Globe has the 100Mbps crown for pricing it better at Php2,899. Converge, on the other hand, bumped their speeds and made a speed add-on to their most affordable plan to create a segment of their own.
