PLDT, the largest telecommunications and digital services company in the Philippines and the most known internet service provider, will spend P11 billion in the next two years to fund its modernization plan that include  the shift from Digital Subscriber line connection (DSL) to Fiber connection.

“We are leveling up their broadband experience with the migration of our DSL customers to Fibr-fast connectivity,” GMA quoted Marco Borlongan, PLDT first vice president and head of Home Business, as saying.

Their DSL plans, according to PLDT, use copper wire technology with speeds of as high as up to 15 Mbps. While their Fibr plans use fiber optic technology and has a speed as high as up to 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps.

Borlongan said the company has been introducing fiber-to-the-home network nationwide this year and has partnered with world-renowned content platforms and providers to ensure their subscribers get the best possible home entertainment experience.

PLDT maintained that their internet speeds and coverage have been improving based on third party tests after Chinese business tycoon Jack Ma remarked that the internet speed in the country was not good.
