PLDT Home Fibr reaches 2.5M homes nationwide, widest fiber coverage in PH

PLDT Home Fibr now passes over 2.5 million homes from as far north as Ilocos Norte to southern Philippines in South Cotabato province, further extending its widest fiber coverage in the country.

“As a result of our aggressive rollout program, PLDT now has over 140,000 kilometers of fiber optic cables, the most extensive fiber infrastructure in the country. This enables us to serve the increasing demand for high-speed broadband from homes across the country,” PLDT Chairman and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan said.



The PLDT Group’s expanded nationwide fiber optic network will enable even more homes to enjoy seamless and lag-free internet access from as far north as Laoag, Baguio City, Vigan City, and Tuguegarao, all the way to central and southern Luzon, including Tarlac, Cabanatuan City, and San Fernando, Pampanga, and Puerto Princesa and El Nido in Palawan; down to the Bicol region to stretch to Sorsogon, Naga City, and Legazpi City.

Meanwhile, the major urban areas in the Visayas region are also fiber-ready with the most extensive footprint in the cities of Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo, Tacloban, and Tagbilaran. In Mindanao, PLDT’s fiber has now reached key provinces and cities, including Cotabato, Davao, General Santos City, Koronadal, and Zamboanga.

“As the demand for high-speed connectivity escalates, we are stepping up our efforts to make our most advanced broadband service accessible to more homes in the country,” Pangilinan pointed out. 

In addition to being available in more areas, PLDT is making the Home Fibr service more affordable and enjoyable by introducing Plan 1899 which offers speeds of up to 50 Mbps.

PLDT Home Fibr delivers high-speed Internet of up to 1 Gbps, allowing ultra-fast browsing of multiple websites and the country’s first symmetrical speed service which provides equal upload and download speeds. This allows families to better enjoy more entertainment from renowned digital partners like iflix, Fox Networks Group, Netflix, Roku, and iWant TV, as well as greater security at home with monitoring device FamCam that lets you watch over your family wherever you are and FamZone that allows parents to keep their children safe online.

“With Fibr’s unmatched broadband performance and compelling content offerings, the digitally connected Smart Home is even more powerful than ever, proving that the strongest connections are in our fiber,” Pangilinan added.

PLDT has invested P300 billion or $6 billion over the last 10 years to roll-out the country’s most expansive network infrastructure. For 2016 alone, the telco leader has set aside P48 billion or about $1 billion for capital expenditures, a significant portion of which was allocated for the domestic fiber infrastructure.
