This new 4G service for the home connects devices through a router’s wireless, promising speeds of three to 10Mbps. It comes in three different tiers: 3Mbps for Php 999 (US$22) per month, 5Mbps for Php 1599 (US$36) and 10Mbps for Php 1999 (US$45).
In countries without super high-speed broadband, LTE is touted as the fastest connectivity option. By bringing 4G into households in the Philippines, PLDT says that a user can load a three-minute video in six seconds.
However, this new service has a monthly data cap and speeds can drop to 30 percent of the original speed if the monthly allocation has already been reached.
In September, Globe Telecom launched a similar service for subscribers in the Philippines.Editing by Steven Millward
