Free PLDT Fibr Speed Upgrade
As reported on Reddit 5 days ago, PLDT rolled out a free speed boost for its subscribers as a Christmas treat.
Basically, existing speeds were doubled:
- Fibr Unli Plan 1299 – now up to 10Mbps, from 5Mbps/3Mbps
- Fibr Unli Plan 1699 – now up to 20Mbps, from 10Mbps/5Mbps
- Fibr Unli Plan 1899 – now up to 50Mbps, from 25Mbps/20Mbps
- Fibr Unli Plan 2899 – now up to 100Mbps, from 50Mbps
Yugatechreported that PLDT confirmed to them that the speed upgrades are permanent and that its rollout to all subscribers in Q1 of 2019.
I did some speed tests and was glad to be included:
Timing is perfect as I was already in the process of requesting a speed upgrade on my Fibr subscription plan which has already been grandfathered. If all goes well, the current speed of 20Mbps will be bumped up to 25Mbps for the same monthly cost.
