Introduced in 2021, this ultra-fast internet connection aims to bring the Philippines on par with leading digital nations such as Japan, the USA, South Korea, Italy, Norway, and New Zealand.

In a remarkable achievement, PLDT onboarded approximately 1.1 million new fiber subscribers in late 2022, accounting for nearly 60% of the fiber connection industry. The company’s current subscriber base stands at approximately 2.9 million. Furthermore, PLDT increased the internet speeds of its Fiber plans last year, ensuring an enhanced online experience for its customers.

Ookla praised PLDT as the only telecommunications company in Southeast Asia, alongside Singapore’s ViewQWest, to achieve the prestigious five-peat award. Luke Deryckx, Ookla’s Chief Technology Officer, commended PLDT’s consistent performance over the past five years.

PLDT revealed the highest recorded speeds from their services in 2022 were observed in various locations, including Pasig, Cagayan De Oro, Baguio, and many more. These achievements are made possible by PLDT’s extensive fiber network, which spans an impressive 1.1 million kilometers.
