Looks like PLDT is aggressively selling its DSL service, now with a residential package of Php999 per month (PLDT Plan 999) at speeds of 384Kbps. This is the former bandwidth allocation for their Plan 1995 which is now at 512Kbps.

On top that, their Php788 per month for Smart WiFi is being heavily promoted in the provinces.

Realme Philippines

The Plan 999 was also an old promo for students only but has now been expanded to cover regular residential subscribers. With the introduction of DSL Plan 999, I think PLDT will soon be upgrading existing subscribers to higher bandwidths. Much more that Globe Telecoms is pushing to 2Mbps for Php2,995 (Explore Gold Plan).

The problem here though is that PLDT is so aggressive in selling broadband connections to potential new customers that it has already forgotten about the existing ones. Just read the comments over at the Smart WiFi entry.

I am sure they know that it’s cheaper to retain new customers than to get new ones. Oh, I forgot they have that 1-year lock-up clause.

mga gents and gals….pldt ba gamit nyo…best self service na lang gawin nyo but remember para hinde kayo maabala ng no connection ay dapat dagdag kayo ng isang linksys wifi router at i reset and modem nyo
1. yung linksys ang gamitin nyo for wifi users like cellphones at tablets
2. yung pldt modem nyo ay naka kabit sa bubong ng bahay nyo
dapat i-reset nyo pag walang connection every time na gagamitin nyo
3. tiyagaan lang at konting technical lang
4. ping nyo pldt modem nyo sa cmd window
dalawa yun isang pldt home ultera at isang pdt homebro
both ay local addres
sa cmd window type ipconfig /all
dapat may ip address at lease at dhcp at dns
5. dapat working ang anti-virus ng computer nyo

A timeshare locks you into a week each year, but this is
not practical for everyone. At this moment, I was glad that Amtrak
had such a generous carry-on policy; I was happy to have my luggage
with me in the same car as my room. Along with hiking mountain trails, visitors can also see the beauty and unique culture of Nepal.

We applied for PLDT myDSL. The contractor installed the connection wires and put a router (XyXEL). The Problem is they did not setup the internet connection. They said there is a problem in username and password and they will be back or the PLDT would be the one to set it up. Until now no one is coming to fix the connection.

Ano ba yan, bali ba nag papakabit ako ng DSL dahil ang alam ko mas Ok yan. kasi gamit namin ay smart broadband at lagi na lang may problema, at pagkatapos madelay ka lang ng konti sa payment biglang lumalaki ang bill.Ano ba talaga ang dapat gamitin? sa mga nabasa ko dito, lahat may problema.

hi po Necronomicron. thanks sa reply. kasama ba sa package na 1299 yung wireless router? wala naman sila sinabi sakin. at hindi ko rin need ng wireless router kasi wala naman ako laptop.

puntahan ko na lang muna ang PLDT para malinawan ang lahat. sana ako lang ang biktima nila at hindi na maulit sa iba.

i’ll be back. good night. ^^

I think baka nakalimutan ng taga pldt na lagyan ka ng wireless router. nasa 1,400-1,600 yung price non.. dalawang brand kasi yon na pag pipilian mo..sige mas mabuti pang pumunta ka na lang sa pldt. minsan kasi mga agent sa phone shunga shunga eh di alam mga pinag sasabi. next time pag may tumawag sayo kunin mo ang name para in case na magkaproblema pwede mo syang balikan. tandaan mo yung time and date of call mo kasi naka record yan pwede nilang ma trace.

hmmm ganun ba? ang alam ko yun na yung downpayment ko na 1800 eh. modem lang naman meron sa akin yung kulay puti na maliit. kaya nagtataka ako dun sa SERVICE AND OTHER CHARGES hindi naman nilagay sa brochure, at hindi naman din inexplain nung taga PLDT sakin na meron pang charge na 2400+. at walang nakalagay sa brochure na binigay sakin.

update ko na lang kayo kasi pupuntahan ko ang PLDT at tatanong ko bakit nagkaganoon since hindi naman inexplain sa akin ng mabuti ng agent nila. false advertising talaga. reklamo ko sila sa DTI eh.

I think baka sinama na nila yung router? may options kasi don sa brochure na nabasa ko..nag avail ako nyan kasi entitled daw kami mag upgrade from 990 to 1299. 786kbps ang speed. Kaso di ko pinadagdag yung router. yung modem naman from siemens ang ipapalit nila sa dating p-600 series. I hope di yan mangyari sa akin.

guys, ano maganda gawin dito sa PLDT? nag apply ako ng PLDT kasi nakita ko ad nila yung bundle na 768kbps internet at landline. 1299 yung monthly. nag down ako ng 1400, at yung remaining na 700php sa bill na lang daw yun. eto na at dumating na ang bill, nagtataka ako bakit may SERVICE AND OTHER CHARGES pa na 2300+? hindi naman sinabi at hindi nakalagay sa print ad nila. so bale ang bill ko ngayon ay nasa 3.4k plus lahat kasama na dun ang remaining balance sa downpayment ko which is 700, at yung monthly na 1299 at yung EVAT pa. ineexpect ko kasi yung babayaran ko ay 700, plus yung bill ko na 1299.

saan kaya pwede ireklamo ito? hindi naman nakalagay sa ad nila na ganun ang babayaran mo. bottom line is nangloloko sila.

ireklamo ko kaya sa DTI yan or kung saan pwede. correct me if im wrong. para na rin sa ibang mga mabiktima nila.

4½ years after the original post date of this entry, I’m wondering how PLDT’s 384kbps (entry-level) service is faring against the others? and how their service is for the consumer?

Anyone happy/sad about using PLDT’s Phone+DSL right now? Would appreciate your sincere comments!

Thanks..
