In particular, PLDT Home is spending PHP 11B (billion) in the next two years to further provide consumers w/ the best data experience and support everyone's increasing digital lifestyle.

Our vision is to make high-speed internet connectivity the standard of every Filipino whether they are at home or on the go. With reliable and fast connectivity, PLDT is fully committed to revolutionize the way Filipinos experience and enjoy world-class digital services and content on their various screens - the television, personal computers, tablets, and mobile phones, said PLDT and Smart EVP and Chief Revenue Officer Eric R. Alberto.

This upgrade will roll-out to over one million ports nationwide. It will be the upgrade that its over 1.3 million subscribers will surely enjoy soon.

We are leveling up their broadband experience with the migration of our DSL customers to Fibr-fast connectivity. This will fortify the foundation of the SmartHome for the digitally savvy Filipino family, said PLDT FVP and Head of Home Business Marco Borlongan. With our network modernization program, we are bringing the power of Fibr to every Filipino home so that our subscribers can better enjoy their digital lifestyle through access to world-class Internet. This year, we’ve been rolling out fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network nationwide and we’ve also teamed up with world-renowned content platforms and providers to ensure that our subscribers get the best possible home entertainment experience, he stressed.

By the end of this 2017, PLDT is expected to expand its FTTH coverage to about four million homes. The company is also currently deploying hybrid fiber technologies to make existing customers enjoy fiber-like speeds.
