After getting PLDT Fibr months before, I was pretty satisfied with the service and for me, it’s one of the best choice for people like me who do a living on the internet. Just around 2 months after I acquired Fibr, they rolled out their new Power Plus Plan offering 50 Mb/s for only P2899. What I did was immediately called CSR of PLDT asked how can I take advantage of the upgrade and lessen my bill.
Since my service is new, it is still in lock in period upgrading for the 2899 plan is considered as a downgrade and not as an upgrade . It’s paying more money for less internet speed. What I learned is that our plan will soon be upgraded to 50 Mb/s speed and will pay the same amount of P3600. Not a big problem for me since I was expecting 20 Mb/s of speed on the first place.
Just a few days ago, I got the speed upgrade and it gave a satisfying speed of around 50 Mb/s average speed.
Here are some of the things I now enjoy that are not possible before:
- Watching HD Youtube Videos without buffering – I think many of us here in the Philippines are used to pausing Youtube videos and wait it to buff. Not a problem anymore.
Uploading/Sending Photos – Taking pictures from DSLR cameras create huge file size for photos. Now, I have no problem sending gigs size of files.
Work better and faster – I can download and send files easier and can browse websites faster.
Conclusion: The faster the internet speed, the better. I’m aware that PLDT fibr is not yet available on many areas so I think it’s better to wait and not dig in to other services which are not reliable. What I noticed is that the number of Globe agents that are going house to house are increasing. One talked to me and offered me their 5 Mb/s internet which I believe is capped at some point. I can’t describe his face when I said “Sorry kuya naka 50 Mb po kasi ako na plan dito (Sorry I have a 50 Mb/s plan here) ”
What I still need is a fast mobile internet service which there is none yet in my area.
