PLDT speeds up network migration for Home Ultera


PLDT has made the announcement that it has succeeded in transforming its previous fixed wireless service, which was referred to as Home Ultera, into a new fixed wired and wireless service that is superior in both speed and reliability.

By the end of July 2022, PLDT will have finished the scheduled decommissioning of around 185 telecommunications towers that offer coverage for Time-Division Duplex Long-Term Evolution, also known as TD-LTE, to Home Ultera.

This indicates that more than 3,000 Home Ultera customers who are eligible for service migration will have the opportunity to migrate either to higher speed fixed fiber plans or to a postpaid wireless service for the home at no additional cost and in order to provide a better experience for their customers.

Customers who switch to Home Fiber will not only not have to pay for the modem or the installation of the service.

This migration initiative will cover 58 areas in the Philippines including Abra, Agusan del Sur, Aklan, Albay, Antique, Basilan, Bataan, Batangas, Benguet, Biliran, Bohol, Bukidnon, Bulacan, Cagayan, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Capiz, Cavite, Cebu, Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Davao Oriental, Eastern Samar, Guimaras, Ifugao, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Iloilo, La Union, Laguna, Lanao del Norte, Maguindanao, Metro Manila, Misamis Occidental, Misamis Ori

The decommissioning comes after PLDT stated earlier this year that it would be selling the tower. As part of PLDT’s strategy change to further invest in and enhance network operations, the company made a groundbreaking announcement in April about a sale-and-leaseback deal pertaining to 5,907 telecom towers.

PLDT is still the only telecommunications company in the Philippines capable of providing fiber-optic service at speeds of up to 10,000 megabits per second. Through its nationwide infrastructure that spans more than 803,000 kilometers, 15.5 million residences traversed, and a total fiber capacity of 6.25 million ports, the PLDT Home division of the company offers the quickest internet to more than 3.1 million fiber users. This fiber network also links the countrywide wireless LTE and 5G networks of PLDT and Smart, which provide LTE and 5G coverage to clients from Batanes to Tawi-Tawi and connect each cell site to each other and to the core.
