PLDT expands lightning fast Net service

MANILA, Philippines—Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) has expanded the coverage of its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) fixed Internet service in Metro Manila to deliver high-speed broadband connection to more households.

Offering speeds of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps), PLDT’s FTTH service, or “Fibr,” is the first in the country to use fiber optic cables to deliver broadband service to residences. It was initially offered in Ayala Alabang in Muntinlupa and Forbes Park in Makati.

Unlike cable Internet, where neighbors share broadband connection, “PLDT Fibr’s broadband service provides a dedicated broadband connection in the access network utilizing fiber optics which facilitates simultaneous high-speed browsing and downloading,” PLDT executive vice president and head for home business Ariel Fermin said.

PLDT Fibr is now available in parts of Greenhills, Acropolis, Greenmeadows, La Vista and Valle Verde in Quezon City; Alabang Hills, Alabang 400 and Hillsborough in Alabang, Muntinlupa; and Dasmariñas Village, San Lorenzo Village and Urdaneta Village in Makati, the company said.

PLDT Fibr subscription rates range from P3,500 a month (with speed of up to 8Mbps) to P20,000 a month (up to 100Mbps).

Fibr has been designed for tech-savvy customers who have more than one device—mobile phones, tablets, game consoles and television sets—connected to the Internet at any given time, Fermin said.
