PLDT to Boost Internet Speeds to Customers of Metro Manila and Parts of Greater Manila

PLDT commits to a minimum speed of 25mbps

With Metro Manila placed under “community lockdown” for a month, most companies and schools are highly encouraged to implement a work/study from home policy to its employees. Acknowledging the need for additional bandwidth, PLDT announced that it will be implementing speed boosts for its Home FIBR customers in Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Laguna, and Cavite and commit to a minimum speed of 25mbps.

PLDT is currently working on the technical preparations and expects customers to experience the speed boost by next week. For its prepaid users, PLDT is extending its Php 199 double data load (from 12GB to 24GB) to April.

“That should be enough to serve the needs of several simultaneous users in the household,” PLDT-Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto said.

Prior to this, Smart has expanded its list of free-to-access sites to include official sites of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRMMC) and Philippine Information Agency.

  3. Bloody hell. 5 weeks ang counting wala parin pumupunta na techinician to repair our line. This was after only having 4 weeks of service because before that we had to endure 6 weeks of no service and continued follow ups before you got around to fixing it. We were advised that it was an issue with the fibre optics and your engineers have been made aware of it and will likely be a recurring problem unless fully resolved and yet here we are and its radio silence from you guys. The phone and internet service was set up to communicate with loved ones most especially for emergency cases and yet we have neither. You dont even provide any alternative or replacement service. Further if the bill is not paid despite no service provided, you automatically close any existing repair order and it becomes a billing issue. How is that fair, please explain?
