Of Ultrabooks and Wi-Fi Zones, a PLDT-Intel Partnership
Intel and PLDT last week announced its partnership in bringing high-speed performance and connectivity to its consumers with the Intel-powered Ultrabooks and PLDT WiFi Zone.
As the number of internet users continues to grow, with people spending more and more time in the web consuming rich multimedia content both inside and outside their household, the need for a more powerful yet portable computing device and a fast, dependable and accessible internet connection arises.
“Internet growth is driven largely by content, now more so by consumers who exchange photos, videos and tweets wherever they may be,” said Intel Philippines country manager Ricky Banaag. “In this day and age, there is a noticeable increase in the demand for internet access anytime, anywhere. People are now able to access the internet simultaneously across multiple devices, empowering them not just to download data, but to upload and share content as well. Intel’s partnership with PLDT addresses a new era of computing experience that is underway, and ensures that the consumer’s expectations for a secure, mobile and powerful device are met through the Ultrabook.”
PLDT Retail Business Group Head, Dan Ibarra, shares “With PLDT WiFi Zone*, PLDT subscribers can experience the strong connections they have at home, and they never have to miss out on their broadband experience – premium, fast and unlimited.”
With PLD Wi-Fi Zones, existing PLDT subscribers can gain access and enjoy the same reliable premium myDSL internet service in more than 3,500 PLDT Wi-Fi hotspots all over Metro Manila, Cebu and Baguio.
myPLDT subscribers can avail of the UNLIMITED use of Wi-Fi Zones for a monthly rate of Php 150 (on top of the monthly service fee) while PLDT landline subscribers will have to shell out Php 300 to enjoy this privilege.
