PLDT Fibr users reporting upgraded speeds




It looks like PLDT is giving a holiday present to its Fibr subscribers with speed upgrades, according to tips we have received as well as feedback from social media.

In several posts over at the TipidPC forum and reddit, users are surprised with the sudden speed surges under the telco’s fiber connections with some saying it had doubled than their usual allocated plan.

  • Fibr Unli Plan 1299 – now up to 10Mbps, from 5Mbps/3Mbps
  • Fibr Unli Plan 1699 – now up to 20Mbps, from 10Mbps/5Mbps
  • Fibr Unli Plan 1899 – now up to 50Mbps, from 25Mbps/20Mbps
  • Fibr Unli Plan 2899 – now up to 100Mbps, from 50Mbps

PLDT has also taken down its Speed upgrade Holiday promo from its website and replaced it with Google Home WiFi plans starting at PHP 2,299 for speeds up to 30Mbps. Users are reporting that, according to their conversations with PLDT customer service reps, the rollout has started in Makati and is rolling out to Metro Manila in the coming weeks. Other locations are yet to be determined.

This follows Converge ICT’s Fiber speed upgrades announced earlier this month. We’re awaiting feedback from PLDT if this is a limited time offer or a permanent speed boost for its current plans.

Update: PLDT’s official social media pages noted that this is a Christmas treat to subscribers this holiday season. Further comments from the PLDT social media channels suggested that the speed boosts are only available for one day only.

    well I could testify to this, I only have 20mbps plan but I just checked after I read your article and it’s whopping 50mbps for some reason.

  3. Avid Fan says:

    Confirmed, from 25Mbps, now its 50+Mbps

  4. Dust says:

    Buking n buking pldt kaya nmn pala nila itaas speed. Corrupt company.

  5. Justin says:

    Wala sa akin. Currently on VDSL2 (Plan 1899, 25 Mbps)

  6. Jio says:

    So pwede naman pala itaas e. bakit ayaw nila gawing permanente? buti na lang nandyan si converge para gumanda ang kompetisyon.

  7. Salty says:

    Im only getting 10Mbps down / 25Mbps up. Plan 1899

  8. Mark Pangilinan says:

    They should make it permanent. Globe is already offering up to 150 Mbps speed for their Plan 2899 Go Unli Fibr and 2499 Go Big (1TB Data Cap). We’re planning on switching to Globe next year if PLDT won’t give any significant speed upgrades in the short term.

  11. janjararan says:

  12. Anon for obvious reasons says:

    Just lost the 2x speed boost

  13. el gato says:

    ‘grats sa mga fiber internet users.

    sana makasama ang maliit na town namin sa rollout ng third telco (fiber?) internet service sa mindanao.

  14. Albert says:

    got a speed bump to 100mbps but lasted for only 2 days

  15. Dave says:

    It’s only temporary. I called their hotline and they said it’s only a promotion. I also saw multiple posts on tipidpc and reddit that users are reporting normal speeds again. Oh well. It’s a good time to switch to converge
