PLDT upgrades myDSL Plan 3000 to 5Mbps

Good news to all PLDT myDSL subscribers on Plan 3000 — bandwidth upgrades have been rolling to all subs as early as first week of this month. The plan was bumped up from 3Mbps to 5Mbps.

Subscribers are getting offers of the free upgrade as long as they continue their subscriptions and lock it for another year. So far, only the Plan 3000 are being offered the upgrades while the lower tiers have not been extended the same.

This move might have been prompted by the recent offerings of other competing ISPs that offer 3Mbps and 5Mbps at prices between Php899 to Php999 (although the bandwidth is capped for these plans).

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

It’s a good proposition that should show what customers will be willing to shell out. Here’s the round-up:

up to 3Mbps @ Php899 with 15GB bandwidth cap {see story here}

Sky Broadband
up to 5Mbps @ Php999 with 15GB bandwidth cap {see story here}

PLDT myDSL Plan 3000
up to 5Mbps @ Php3,000* without cap

We should note that the PLDT myDSL Plan 3000 also comes with a free land-line and WatchPad account and free NDD calls for 1 year.

    At least di sila nangscam katulad ng bayandsl
    “upgrade to a higher speed with the same monthly fee.”
    sounds good right?
    but you have to pay the installation fee + 1 month fee +1 month advanced fee on the next billing. reset pa yung lock in period.

    naghihirap na ba bayantel. dati autoupgrade sila a. sumasabay lng sila sa mga speed ng competition nila. believe me even if you dont upgrade they’ll still upgrade it kasi mapapagiwanan sila ng kompetisyon. yung 1.5 mbps ko autoupdated sa 2 mbps nung nagupdate yung pldt. yung pppoe to dhcp convert libre lng dati yun ah. this is a money making scheme. kailangan talaga nila madalian pera. so yung nascam nila ay yung 1 month advance fee saka installation fee.

    yung mga di naupgrade. papayag ba ang bayan dsl na you remain at 1.5 mbps for 1500 pesos if pldt has upgraded to 3 mbps for 999 pesos. believe me they’ll try to match pldt. kung hindi mawawalan sila subscriber.

    yung rebate palpak rin. yung technician even if they arrived 2 days later merun na agad dun report from technician that they had arrived at your house within that 24 hour period. ikaw pa tuloy labas na sinungaling.

Kayang kaya naman ng PLDT babaan yung fee pero baka mangayayat yung mga nasa itas… Pwe! Kadiri kayo!

    pag luma na mother board mo at gusto mo i-upgrade connection mo …bibilis ba 2

  4. pathetic. .i was informed this upgrade of bandwith is not available for us since we’re still under PLDT broadband’s old facility..isn’t that they should offer this more to old subscribers like us who’d been loyal to their company for so many years?

    Well after lots of complaining they finally agreed to upgrade me to the 5mbps. So far been two weeks and no change at all in speeds from when I was under the 3mbps. It seems like a ploy to get you to stay for another 12 months

    saw on PLDT DSL’s website that the 2mbps plan is now 3mbps.

    Called regarding this so called upgrade. And was not available for me. It seems that they are offering this to subscribers whose contract term has expired already. Since mine is not over will not be able to get the speed boost.

    I’m current 3mb subscriber ng PLDT. As of now, may problem ako sa stability ng connection. Around 3 weeks na akong ganito. Ang sarap na nga basagin ito modem nila. Hayz!!!! Walang kwenta ang 5mb nila kung di naman stable, yung palaging napuputol ang internet connection. Sakit sa ulo kaya yun, lalo na kung may client ka na kausap sa skype tapos napuputol. Nakakahiya di ba?! Put*ang In*! na lang lagi ang nasasabi ko araw araw dahil sa PLDT na ito.
