PLDT has further expanded its Fibr services by deploying its FTTH (Fibr to the Home) facilities in east Metro Manila, adding over 70,000 lines that would provide access to world-class internet service to more homes in the country’s key urban centers. The PLDT Fibr roll-out covers the cities of Antipolo, Marikina, Pasig, Taguig, Caloocan, and the towns of Taytay, Cainta, and Pateros, enabling residents from villages like Brgy. Kaunlaran in Caloocan, Antipolo Hills Subdivision, Greenbreeze Phase 2 and 2A in Marikina, and Greenwoods Executive Village in Pasig, among other areas, to experience PLDT Home Fibr’s world-class internet service in their homes.
“PLDT Home continues its efforts to create Fibr-powered PLDT Smart Cities nationwide to enrich the lives of more Filipinos through our innovative digital services and connectivity solutions. The network rollout in East Metro Manila will provide powerful connections and top-of- the-line services that will benefit both its residents and businesses,” PLDT FVP and Home Business Head Oscar Enrico A. Reyes, Jr. said. “Our vision is to make Fibr-fast internet available to 4.4 Million homes by the end of the year and we are working very hard to realize this vision.”
PLDT Fibr will enable East Metro Manila subscribers to not only do swift browsing of multiple websites but also have equal upload and download speeds. PLDT’s fibr customers will also be able to enjoy the best entertainment options from PLDT Home’s renowned global content partners, including US-based streaming pioneer Roku. FTTH allows the seamless and stable streaming of high definition (HD) video content minimizing latency and pixelization.
The PLDT Fibr expansion in east Metro Manila is the latest phase in PLDT’s aggressive nationwide fiber expansion program. It has already transformed key urban areas into Fibr-powered PLDT Smart Cities starting with Toledo City in Cebu, General Santos in Mindanao, Naga City in the Bicol region, as well as South Metro Manila.
