Converge, PLDT, Globe, SKY: Unlimited Fiber Internet Plans Compared (2023)

So it’s 2023 and you’re interested in either getting fiber internet in your home or office, or you’re curious about switching from one internet service provider (ISP) to another.

You start to look up all the plans that each ISP offers and it gets overwhelming. This plan has this many Mbps for this amount of money, this one has this speed for this lower price, but this one has much more bang for your buck deal — all of it can be a bit too much and we get it.

To get a better look at your options, we’ve put together a quick comparison of the fiber internet plans offered by the major ISPs in the Philippines, namely Globe, PLDT, Converge, and SKY.

Let’s check them out!

Among the four ISPs, SKY Fiber still offers the most affordable plan with 30Mbps for Php 999/mo. Upgrading to their Php 1299 plan will then net you 75 Mbps.

However, Converge offers 200 Mbps for Php 1500/mo — which is a really good price for the amount of speed you get.

For the Php 1699/mo price point, SKY is lagging behind. Both Globe and PLDT are offering 200 Mbps plans for 1699, while SKY is only offering 150 Mbps. Converge, on the other hand, offers a Time of Day plan for Php 1699/mo with speeds of 400/200 Mbps.

Meanwhile, for Php 2000/mo, you can get 400 Mbps internet speeds with Converge’s FiberX plan. We can imagine this as a popular option for many consumers, especially since this is the only 400 Mbps option that doesn’t breach the Php 2000 mark.

This makes PLDT’s 400 Mbps plan at Php 2099/mo a bit of a head-scratcher in terms of value since it’s Php 100 more for the same speed offered by Converge.

If you’re really looking for a bit more speed ranging around 500 Mbps, Globe is offering an internet plan for that speed at Php 2499/mo. Meanwhile, Converge is offering 600 Mbps for Php 2500/mo.

Other options for 600 Mbps are either PLDTs Php 2699/mo plan or their Php 2999/mo Fiber PLUS plan which includes 3 WiFi Mesh Units.

Those interested in Converge’s Time of Day plan at 800/600 Mbps will have to fork out Php 3000/mo. This is up from their former Php 1699/mo Time of Day plan in 2022 that offered 400/200Mbps.

Only Globe and Converge offer an 800 Mbps plan at Php 3499/mo and Php 5000/mo respectively. The difference here is that Converge’s Php 5000/mo 800 Mbps is their Game Changer Elite plan which includes a specialized gaming router with the plan.

Lastly, for those who want 1-Gbps speed, both Converge and Globe offer it with their Php 7499 per month plan. Meanwhile, PLDT also has a 1-Gbps fiber plan but the pricing will be upon request.

While these rated speeds from ISPs don’t necessarily reflect the whole internet experience each product provides, it does at least gives us a good baseline on what plan gives what for every budget out there.

With that, which internet plan do you think is best? Do you have any recommendations on what you think is the best fiber internet plan out right now?

    Sky’s plans’ standings here should have a caveat: their speeds are temporary speedboosts, which will end on January 1,2024. Once they end, rheir plans become MUCH LESS competitive. For example, their 1699 plan goes back from 150mbps to 50mbps. Compared to Globe’s 1699’s 200mbps, that’s pathetic.

    Factor in the quality, reliability, honesty, faithfulness of the services offered by these telcos. Majority of them are substandard.

    There is an existing Sky Fiber/Cable plan P1499 @ 40mbps which was left out. that’s why we switched ISP. Complained about it several times because a lower plan P1299 with a speed of 75mbps exist. they didnt do something about it, all they say was you are not included in the upgrade. Unfair, isn’t it.

    Sky cable, left us out at their plan P1499 @ 40mbps. Wherein their new plan at P1299 was 75mbps. We have complained about this several times but to no avail. thats why we terminate our subscription and switch to other ISP.

    Bakit wala yung Php 1,500 ng Converge na 200mbps?
    Paki lagay at paki ayos please.
    Kung may makakakita neto iisipin mas mahal ang converge.

    looks like you sabotaged Converge here. lots of Converge plans are missing or have outdated info. for example FiberX 1500 at 200Mbps and Time of Day 1699 at 400/200 Mbps. FiberX 2500 is 600Mbps not 500

      All information were taken from the Converge website, which, apparently was also outdated. We’ve updated this using our our story archives.
