Cebu City, Philippines, October 22, 2015 – Broadband leader PLDT HOME fortifies its market leadership with a robust broadband and a comprehensive suite of digitally connected services in Cebu, bringing the best Internet connectivity and entertainment experience across different home devices to more families in the country.
PLDT has the most robust and widest reach of fiber optic network that spans to over 100,000 kilometers nationwide. With the continuous roll-out of broadband facility in the province, PLDT HOME brings its leading broadband brands in Cebu covering key cities and municipalities from Daanbantayan to Moalboal allowing families to enjoy the benefits of a digitally connected home.
PLDT HOME’s flagship brand DSL remains to be the broadband of choice with over 70% market share nationwide and is maintained in Cebu.
Earlier this year, PLDT HOME implemented a series of speed upgrades to its Fibr plans for free. From a minimum speed of 8 Mbps to 20 Mbps, all the way up to the 100 Mbps plan which was boosted to 200 Mbps. It also introduced the first symmetrical speed feature that entitles users to equal upload and download speeds. With plans as low as P1899, Fibr is now available in over 100 sites in Cebu including Beverly Hills, Cebu Royal Estates, and Maria Luisa Estates among others.
The expansion and bolstering of network coverage in Cebu allow PLDT HOME to extend its contemporary line-up of game-changing products and services that enrich the digital lifestyle needs of the families.
PLDT HOME started the year with the introduction of the FAM CAM, a home monitoring device that lets parents watch over their kids from wherever they are. From home security and peace of mind, PLDT HOME added a tier to its connected home with leveled-up entertainment offers from breakthrough partnerships with esteemed content providers iflix and Fox International Channels (Fox).
With Southeast Asia’s leading Internet TV service iflix, families get their fill of hit TV shows and blockbuster movies, while global entertainment company and Asia Pacific’s leading broadcaster Fox serves them video-on-demand, live viewing and catch-up TV content. These entitle families to the biggest range of entertainment possibilities from side-splitting comedies to spine-chilling thrillers to heart-racing sports events, as part of the broadband subscription.
Having maximized its offerings within the home with landline, broadband and cable TV, PLDT HOME took connectivity to the next level with quadplay, which adds mobile connectivity to the bundle and equips families with the same reliable connection when they step out of the house. PLDT HOME also tied up with the world’s leading ride-sharing tech company Uber to offer subscribers free rides, among other consumer benefits.
Among the most recent launches of the multimedia giant is the TVolution Stick in partnership with multinational technology company Intel. This revolutionary device with just the size of a dongle transforms any HDMI-ready TV or monitor into a full Windows computer.
“We are grateful to our subscribers in Cebu for their continued trust to our products and sevices. We wanted to give back to them in the form of digital services meant to enrich their lives. We would like to expand all the reach of these new services to more homes in the country especially in Cebu,” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “Cebu’s rapid urbanization gives us a lot of growth opportunities. We are also able to build the strongest connections and enrich more digital lifestyle among Cebuano families as we offer our extensive entertainment products and topnotch connectivity at home and even beyond the home.”
