PLDT to Upgrade All Home DSL Subscribers to Home Fiber for Free

As part of its modernization program

As part of its efforts in improving its services, PLDT announced that it will be starting its 18-month-long modernization program, where subscribers who are still using the copper-based ADSL service will be upgraded to fiber. The upgrade will boost overall internet speeds, and PLDT is doing this for free.

“With this modernization program, PLDT sets out to reinforce the drive to install new fiber connections and meet the ever-increasing demand for high-speed internet access for more homes and businesses. It is an essential need, especially in these times of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said PLDT Chief Revenue Officer and Smart President Alfredo Panlilio said.

Since the start of the lockdown last March, PLDT’s network operations made adjustments in its work processes and gradually scaled up its ability to build and repair. This also includes giving Home Fibr customers a free speed boost for postpaid subscribers and double-the-data packages for prepaid subscribers during the stricter community quarantine period.

PLDT has covered 7.8 million homes in the first half of 2020, up 8% from end-2019. The total number of available fiber-powered ports increased 5% to 3.67 million, with 1.6 million available for new customers. To date, PLDT’s fiber-optic network now spans 360,000 kilometers and is the country’s most extensive digital data infrastructure.

Ginagawa nga ng agents nyo ngyn sa mga congested na area, tinatanggal sa mismong poste ung connection ng subscriber tapos ikakabit yung isa na nagbayad ng diskarte na subscriber din para maging fiber. So ako na kaka ayos lng from 2 weeks na walang connection, 2nd day pa lang nawalan na connection ulit. Sasabihin nun dadating na agent, naputol daw wire. O sira yun connection.. Eh kakapalit lang nun. Diosmio marimar. Mapapa wow ka na lng talaga.
