(Note: Plans included here are the Fiber plans that recently got upgraded. Plans with Mesh WiFi devices are not included.)

Both Converge and PLDT Home‘s plan upgrades are available to new and existing subscribers.

Converge’s FiberX plan starts at PHP 1,500/month, while PLDT Home’s Unli Fibr plan starts at PHP 1,699. Both plans come with 50 Mbps (from 35 Mbps).

However, those who avail of the FiberX Plan 1500 have the option to get an add-on—the FiberX Plan 1500 Xtra. Hence, existing FiberX Plan 1500 subscribers could just add PHP 99 to upgrade their Internet speeds from 50 Mbps (previously 35 Mbps) to 60 Mbps (previously 45 Mbps). It is PHP 100 cheaper than PLDT Home’s Unli Fibr Plan 1699, and it got up to 10 Mbps faster speed.


 

Meanwhile for PHP 2,099, PLDT offers the Unli Fibr Plan 2099 with 100 Mbps (from 50 Mbps). For PHP 99 price difference, Converge has the FiberX Time of Day Plan 2000 (previously Day Plan 1899) with faster speed at 200/100Mbps Day plan (from 70/35 Mbps) and 100/200Mbps Night Plan (from 35/70 Mbps).

If you are eyeing to get a plan with up to 300 Mbps, Converge has a cheaper FiberX 2500, while PLDT Home has Unli Fibr Plan 2699. Both plans previously have up to 100 Mbps.

Furthermore, Converge’s FiberX 3500 gets four times faster speed at 800 Mbps (from 200 Mbps), and it is cheaper compared to PLDT Home’s Unli Fibr Plan 3799 with only up to 600 Mbps (from 200 Mbps). To match the 800 Mbps speed, PLDT Home offers the Unli Fibr Plan 5799. This plan has been upgraded from 600 Mbps.

Which has better-upgraded plans?

Talking about the budget, Converge’s FiberX plans are cheaper than PLDT Home’s Unli Fibr plans.

Nonetheless, it is worth noting that the PLDT Home’s Unli Fibr plans are more expensive as they come with a landline. These plans come with unlimited calls to any PLDT landline. So if you think you need a landline, you may opt for the Unli Fibr plans instead.
