To cater to the growing number of smart homes in the Philippines, the new Fiber plan also comes with a WiFi 6 Mesh System that guarantees ultra-fast WiFi speeds covering an area of over 550 square meters.
As a treat for its subscribers, PLDT Home also recently announced its most powerful fiber plans, with existing users getting the upgrades to their subscribed speeds as well. All PLDT Home subscribers can now enjoy the fastest and most superior internet speeds to power their smart home devices and cover their homes with seamless whole-home connectivity.
