PLDT myDSL users, anybody noticed any speed upgrade on their DSL connection the past few weeks?
During the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio last February, I was able to chat with somebody from PLDT and I asked when they will start upping the speed of current DSL plans. Turns out they are already in the process of doing that and the speed upgrades are almost complete. The reason why I’m not seeing any improvements on my end because they’re upgrading those at the 384kbps connection last.
Early this year, the myDSL Plan 1995 was upgraded to 3mbps from 2mbps, and Plan 3000 was upgraded to 5mbps from 3mbps. Then last month, it Plan 999 subscribers should have noticed speed upgrades from 1mbps to 1.5mbps.
“œThis set of free DSL speed upgrades is a result of PLDT’s continuous investment in the company’s superior connectivity backbone. We are committed to making our subscribers’ experience more fulfilling and rewarding,” said PLDT Group Head for Home Ariel Fermin.
Only thing left to upgrade are those subscribed to Bundled Plan 990 (384kbps) and Bundled Plan 1299 (768kbps). I hope PLDT will accomplish the speed boost for these plans this month.
“œResidential subscribers are now heavy users of internet with all the new content they can access online. These series of speed upgrades will allow our customers the speed they now require but at the same price,” said PLDT Home Marketing Head Dan C. Ibarra.
