If you’re living somewhere in the eastern part of Metro Manila and looking for fast and reliable Internet connectivity, then look no further because PLDT has already deployed its Fiber-to-the-home facilities in the eastern part of the metropolis, which translates to more homes with access to world-class Internet service.

The rollout covers the cities of Antipolo, Marikina, Pasig, Taguig, Caloocan, along with the towns of Taytay, Cainta, and Pateros. This means that 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 can now experience the power of PLDT Home Fibr.

“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,”

“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 FVP and Home Business Head Oscar Enrico A. Reyes, Jr.

With PLDT Home Fibr, Eastern Metro Manila users can now switfly browse multiple websites and enjoy high definition content, apart from having equal upload and download speeds. These customers will also benefit from the best entertainment options, thanks to PLDT Home’s renowned global content partners which include Roku, the US-based streaming service pioneer.

The FTTH deployment in the east is the latest phase in PLDT’s aggressive nationwide fiber expansion program, which has already transformed key urban areas into fiber-powered smart cities: Toledo City in Cebu, General Santos in Mindanao, Naga City in the Bicol region, as well as South Metro Manila. 

As of the moment, PLDT’s FTTH service has already passed 3.3 million homes, six months after it reached around 2.8 million homes at the end of 2016.

PLDT is also deploying hybrid fiber technologies, such as Huawei’s G.fast which can improve data speeds of current subscribers up to 600-700 Mbps over copper lines.

Over the last 10 years, the company has invested P300 billion or $6 billion to roll out the country’s most extensive fixed and wireless network. This includes a transmission and distribution network infrastructure which now has 150,000 kilometers of fiber optic cables, transporting the growing data traffic of its fixed line and mobile networks.
