PLDT invited us to experience their FAST Hub exclusive booth at their office last April 27. FAST Hub is basically what a future home with 10,000Mbps internet connection will be like. While this may seem unreal, everything I experienced in the booth is real and may soon be availed by customers very soon!
To give you a better picture, I am currently subscribed to a 600Mbps internet connection by PLDT. I already enjoy using the speed I am getting, and yet it is just a very small fraction of what I can get from a 10,0000Mbps connection.
Now, how is it like to have a 10,000Mbps internet connection at home.
When using the internet at home, there are several factors, which affects the connection, that you need to consider. You have to keep in mind that device you’re using matters. You also have to take into account the amount of devices connected to a single router. Lastly, you have to include the number of people who are using the available bandwidth and speed of your connection.
With a home that has 10,000Mbps or 10Gbps connection, you can further extend the use of your internet to make your home faster, play stronger and work faster. At FAST Hub booth at PLDT, I got to do a speed test, which really blew me away! With Download and upload speed reached almost 8,000Mbps, which is very close to the aforementioned plan speed. You have to keep in mind that the maximum achievable rate is up to 8,000 Mbps upload/download, and an approximate 20% is allotted for network headers to ensure good transmission.
Having ultra-fast internet at home has several advantages, especially if you and your family engage a lot of bandwidth-intensive online activities like streaming videos in 8K. Downloading and uploading enormous files, livestreaming to thousands of fans, downloading games and updates, and streaming video games are all bandwidth hogs. This connection also ensures that any AiOT product is consistently connection. With a 10,000 Mbps connection, you can do all of this and more!
How do you avail and are there any requirements that you need to know?
Now, one thing is for sure – this one may already be available – by request, for the time being. It will, however, become available to more consumers, provided that the area of coverage can support 10,000Mbps connection. If you want to reserve, make sure to fill in the form found on this link. Price will be upon request. This alone should give you an idea that this pioneering service comes at a price.
When you avail of this plan, a FiberHome AN5506-04-F GPON ONU and ASUS ZenWiFi 6 Mesh system. The latter will ensure that every nook and cranny of the home is blanketed with ultra-fast connectivity up to 5,500 sq. ft, and can power up to 100 bandwidth-hungry devices simultaneously.
