    And I’ll be that they’ll never ba able to fully use that, unless they have a gigabit router with at least 1900AC support.

  2. GALIT SA MAMARU says:

    @sean , what the? ofcourse the can use it, the modem that will be provided will be optimized to handle gigabit data , you might be referring to LAN for the router and the AC is for the wifi, stop being a smart ass, your comment makes you look stupid.

    It’s a trap.

    Their platinum plans are only for the “elite” villages in the Philippines. Even for internet we have discrimination.

    • Kamen Rider Ghost says:

      Because that’s the target market. Will the middle class Filipino shell our 9.5k per month just for internet? I don’t think so.

    • Sony Boy says:

      Ganun po talaga boss, kasi sa ganyang kamahal na internet plan eh hindi kayang i-avail ng karamihan..Oo, tayo dito eh pwede natin sabihin na “kaya” nating i-avail, pero yung mga kapitbahay mo ba eh kakayanin? Business as Usual lang po, wala pong discrimination dito. Wag na po kayong magalit, lipat na lang kayo sa elite subdivisions para maka-avail ha

      Okay. Say that again once you have put up a Lamborghini showroom near Tondo, Manila.

    Actually if it was me if you know and trust at least 4 of your neighbors. Just split up the difference between you and share Wifi lol. 250 Mb for 2,500 a month is quite a deal lol

    food for thought

    • raidnoir says:

      I forgot to add that. Even though PLDT was first to announce their 1 GBps plans. They havent even formmaly added a price yet. I was one of the first ones to get a Rep to contact us but. its been 2 weeks already and no plans yet not even a price.

    • shutter says:

      Ganun pa din ba ang 100mbps fibr nila? 20k pa din ang price?

    • archie says:

      Bakit kailangang magshare kung kaya naman nilang bayaran ang luxuries na binibili nila? Pinakita ba nila sayo ang family monthly income para masabi mong magkakaproblema sila sa pagbabayad?

  6. Wait, we’re paying PhP1899 for 5mbps, and they have PhP2400 for 50mbps?

    • wee says:

      yan tinatawag na Internet Discrimation hehehe

    • archie says:

      Bagong release lang kasi ang 50mbps for P2400 at sa fber locations lang available. Baka threatened na sa telstra kaya panic ang marketing people. Hintay na lang tayo ng 2016 para makita kung ano ang magbabago once operational na ang other telcos.

    NIce, for sure yung batang babae tiba-tiba ang download ng mga TV series at movies. Ang tanong dyan kung talagang 1 Gbps yan kapag nag-speedtest

    • skreech says:

      hindi din natin masasabi na speedtest yun talaga nakukuha kasi ako meron ako isang plan na pag speedtest nakukuha yung speed sa plan pero makikita yung bagal sa actual downloading na 700mb na file mag estimated time sa download 20 hours. ginagamit nilang panluko sa mga subscriber ang mg speedtest minsan sa server pa or sa ftp makikita na di talaga kuha kung ano yung na promised na speed sa plan.

  8. shutter says:

    Pag nagsubscribe ba libre yung STAR WARS LEGO na hawak ni ate?

  9. wee says:

    Free WIFI for the entire building wala paring slowdown yan, hehehe

  10. man lakas ng twa ko dito sa family nato, tlga. pakita nyu test nyu ha lol

    • archie says:

      Ulol at bobo. Bakit kailangan nilang magpakita ng speed test sa insecure at pobreng keyboard warrior? Pabayaan mo sila dahil maraming gamit ang high speed connection. Uwi ka muna tapos ibalik mo yung sukling bente pesos ng nanay mo batang hamog.

  11. Dindo says:

    Sarap nyan!

  12. archie says:

    Andami namang bobo at inggitero sa comments. May buying power sila kaya nasa kanila na yun kung paano nila gagamitin ang 1gbps connection. Sa nagsabi na dumb family, di mo sila kilala personally kaya hindi mo alam kung gagamitin din nila for business purposes ang subscription. Di naman yan tulad ng iphone na pagkamahal mahal e isang tao lang ang gagamit. Pag pobre ka talaga e wala kang alternative kundi maging keyboard warrior at magalit sa mga may pera. Communist thinking at katol pa more.

    • andrew01riza says:

      I agree, alisin na natin sa ugali natin ang utak talangka, hindi nakakatulong eh. we should think before we type. Very expensive mag latag ng Fiber optics and it will be a loss in investment sa telco if few people will subscribe sa area.

      This will be the same as DSL/Phone Lines before na they will gather applications first from interested customers before they have the required numbers of interested subscribers to invest sa area na yun.

      Let’s just wait na dumami ung application inquiry sa area ninyo para yan ang isunod na latagan ng mga telco.
