PLDT DSL/Fibr Speed Upgrade for 2016

Share Button

3 years ago(circa 2013), I experienced a free speed upgrade for my existing PLDT DSL subscription. I wrote about it on this blog post. It seems PLDT decided to upgrade their existing plans this year and I confirmed it on my existing Plan 3000 subscription. From 8Mbps its now 13Mbps on speedtest.net

So, I checked my friends, co-worker’s and neighbor’s connection and verified the following speed upgrades for other plans as well.

  • Bundled with Phone
    • Plan 990: From 1Mbps to 2Mbps
    • Plan 1300(Copper & Fibr): From 2Mbps to 3Mbps
  • DSL Only
    • Plan 1000: From 3Mbps to 5Mbps (confirmed)
    • Plan 2000: From 5Mbps to 8Mbps (confirmed)
    • Plan 3000: From 8Mbps to 13Mbps (confirmed)
  • Fibr
    • Plan 1000: From 3Mbps to 10Mbps
    • Plan 2000: From 5Mbps to 20Mbps
    • Plan 2900: From 20Mbps to 50Mbps (if you subscribe before Mar 2016, you get 100Mbps for 6 months)

The speed to price ratio is still higher compared to most of our neighboring countries. But im a glass half full kind of guy, so this a positive change moving forward.

Note that last year, I got around 9-10Mbps on the first few months of the upgrade, then settled to 8Mbps and stayed there. Thus the speed increases above may/may not change.

Did you get your speed upgrade already? Please post in the comments if you do!

    How can I avail that Fibr plan 1000 and plan 2000? I don’t see that plan on their website and I’ve been wanting to have a Fibr at that price. I live in Bacoor, Cavite and their website says that Fibr is available here. kindly reply 🙂

    well apparently old subs have to wait as pldt is prioritizing new subs, pldt doesn’t have a timeline on when this will happen. bayantel on the other hand, if they have a speed upgrade when you call their csr your speed will be upgraded right away considering that pldt is the biggest telecom in the phils and they can’t be at par with bayantel with regards to such.

    Yes, I got my upgrade a few days ago (from 3mbps now 5mbps). I wasn’t really aware of their plans to upgrade the speed for free, that is why it really came as a surprise when I checked at speedtest.net 🙂 happy subscriber here 🙂
