PLDT confirms rolling out permanent Fibr speed upgrades




PLDT has confirmed to YugaTech that it is rolling out permanently upgraded speeds to its Fibr subscribers.

This is in line with the one-day holiday speed boost the company has given to select users this past weekend, as we have reported.


 

As confirmed by PLDT, its current subscribers with the following Fibr plans will be upgraded to new speeds permanently:

  • Fibr Unli Plan 1299 – now up to 5Mbps, from 3Mbps
  • Fibr Unli Plan 1699 – now up to 10Mbps, from 5Mbps
  • Fibr Unli Plan 1899 – now up to 25Mbps, from 20Mbps

“Yes, we have an on-going speed upgrade program for our PLDT Home Fibr Plan subscribers. But last December 25, we gave a special Christmas speed boost that doubled the internet speed of our existing Fibr subscribers that day,” said Maxine Loyola, AVP for PLDT-Smart brand PR, as sent to us via private message.

Earlier reports sent to YugaTech and seen on other social media platforms noted that the PLDT Fibr rollout has begun in Makati and NCR cities, with other locations seeing speed changes in the coming weeks or months. PLDT estimates that the Fibr speed upgrades will finish by Q1 2019 as this covers close to 1 million subscribers.

    I think you got the “upgraded” plans mixed up? PLDT already finished rolling out those current speeds a few months ago.

    It’s almost 2019. Why PLDT is offering these slow packages? last december 25, they just doubled the speed of all plans. Why not make it permanent, because it looked they are capable of implementing that speed for all of its subscribers. (e.g. Plan 1899 50mbps) that would really shake up the market and they could bring back their former customers.
