PLDT Home has launched the country’s first 10,000 Mbps fiber-optic subscription plan.
This opens the path for home connectivity in the future.
PLDT Home believes that its 10,000 Mbps service will set the standard for internet speeds in the Philippines in the future.
The new service, which was pioneered by the Philippines’ fastest broadband internet service provider, now puts the Philippines on par with first-world countries such as South Korea, Japan, Sweden, Norway, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States in terms of having access to ultra-fast home internet speeds.
“We at PLDT continue to play an active role in shaping the future of our country and leading the way towards a connected nation. We are doing all these for our north star – our customers: business owners, professionals, tech mavericks with very large homes, multiple high-bandwidth users with multiple screens. And with all that life requires of them, they need the fastest home broadband powered by the fastest network. And we are more than ready to give them what they need – all 10,000 of it,” said Alfredo Panlilio, PLDT President and Chief Executive Officer.
In December, PLDT Home will pilot its 10,000 Mbps service in Metro Manila, with plans to expand to other significant cities outside of Metro Manila, such as Cebu and Davao, in 2022.
The planned rollout is the culmination of PLDT Home’s year-long network expansion campaign in 2021, which aims to provide the best internet connections to Filipino homes.
A “smart home” is a private residence controlled, monitored, and regulated using networked devices, according to Statista.com, a leading market and consumer data supplier. According to Statista, the Philippines will have a household penetration rate of 7.5 percent in 2021 and 14.2 percent (or 3.4 million active smart homes) in 2025.
As a result, a 10,000 Mbps connection is the ideal companion for the bandwidth-hungry smart home. To meet the growing demand for smart homes in the Philippines, PLDT Home’s new Fiber Plan includes a WiFi 6 Mesh System, which ensures ultra-fast WiFi rates throughout a 550-square-meter area.
