Keeping up with the ever-growing demands of their different pursuits, Filipino families are working harder to excel and achieve the life they aspire for. PLDT Home, the country’s fastest fixed network, trains the spotlight on all the brilliant possibilities that Filipinos can achieve with its latest campaign, ‘Do It Better’. An assuredly optimistic, hopeful and empowering cause, PLDT Home aims to illustrate how its digital products and services enable families to do, connect, learn, and earn–better—at home.
Using her strongest connections at home, award-winning actress and multi-hyphenated mom Toni Gonzaga, along with her family, have signed up to bring to life all these positive feats (and more!) so that Filipinos at home may be inspired to do the same. Like many young families, the Gonzaga-Sorianos were affected by pandemic restrictions but they refused to let these challenges prevent them from living the life they wanted.
“At first, when we started staying at home and shifting to a digital setup for work and home, it was challenging for me and my family because the shift took some getting used to. But with PLDT Home, I am empowered to do and fulfill my multiple roles at home: from hosting events, working out, and taking care of Seve and Paul. I can live my best life and do things better,” Toni Gonzaga-Soriano said.
Toni also ensures that her four-year-old son, Seve, makes the most of his time at home by letting him learn online through educational videos and games. While renowned director Paul Soriano was able to adapt better in the new normal as he stayed on top of all his film projects through online shoots and directing projects, thanks to their strong and reliable PLDT Home connection at home.
Better Products and Services
As part of its continuing mission to serve the needs of Filipinos better, PLDT Home introduced a host of new products and services including the all-new Fibr plans up to 1000 Mbps. All these innovations aim to provide Filipino families seamless connections while they pursue their passions and work towards their goals.
PLDT Home also leveled up the country’s standard for internet speeds by giving subscribers free speed boost up to 500 Mbps. To provide better internet coverage at home, PLDT Home also introduced Wifi 6 solutions and Fibr Plus plans that come with wifi mesh routers. This move sets a new standard of broadband service for Filipinos that offer beyond fast internet connectivity.
PLDT Home also puts focus on supporting home-based entrepreneurs through its Home Biz Asenso Fibr plans that enable entrepreneurs to do more with their businesses with complete e-commerce solutions and fast internet speeds.
Enjoying time at home is now even more rewarding as PLDT Home beefed up its entertainment offerings through partnerships with Netflix, Viu, and NBA League Pass. PLDT Home subscribers get to enjoy exclusive offers and the convenience of adding these services on top of their existing broadband subscription.
PLDT Home understands how access to healthcare is important now more than ever, which is why the company supports the Metro Pacific Health Tech Corporation’s mWell app— the country’s first fully integrated, one-stop health & lifestyle app that provides online doctor consultations, health education, wellness programs, online pharmacy services, and more.
With the surge of demand for broadband services in the country, PLDT Home has been at the center of enabling the country’s digital shift so that families can thrive better at home.
The leading digital services provider connects an average of 100,000 homes monthly and continues to boost its efforts to widen its fiber footprint that now reaches 478,000 kilometers reaching 10.2 million homes nationwide. The network expansion allowed PLDT Home to increase its fiber capacity to 4.4 million fiber-powered ports around the country.
With the most extensive and advanced digital transport network in the Philippines, PLDT moved up Philippines’ ranking in global speed index as it achieved 55.86 Mbps average fixed broadband speeds on Ookla® Speedtest®, pushing the country’s average internet speeds to 46.25 Mbps in Q1 2021. This has put the Philippines’ global speed index standing to 11 points higher, ranking 81st out of 177 globally and 2 points higher at 22nd rank in Asia.
PLDT has been consistently named the fastest fixed network in the Philippines for three (3) consecutive years at the Ookla Speedtest Awards™ as assessed by Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analyis.
