These days, having a reliable internet connection is undeniably a priority. After all, a lot of our household affairs take place online, from shopping and bills payment to remote work and even schooling.

When it comes to this matter, PLDT Home, or simply PLDT, has always been one of Filipinos’ go-to choices. That’s all thanks to its nationwide coverage and diverse plans.

But don’t just go for the first service bundle that you stumble upon. Knowing the differences among the PLDT plans for 2022 will help you identify which service is actually right for your home.

Let’s review the all-new PLDT plans for 2022, including their features and prices.

What is PLDT Home’s Main Service Now?

When it comes to connectivity services, PLDT has cemented its strong reputation through its Direct Subscriber Line (DSL) internet services. However, this particular offer no longer appears on PLDT’s website. As of now, it seems that Fiber is the company’s flagship service.

You may ask about the difference between DSL and Fibr. PLDT DSL delivers internet connection using copper wire technology. Fibr, on the other hand, uses fiber optic technology where the internet connection comes from light signals running through thin glass wires.[1]

According to PLDT, its Fibr connection can deliver speeds up to 1Gbps. Unlike DSL, a fiber connection makes equal upload and download internet speeds possible, thus allowing you to send data as fast as you can receive it from others.

Currently, PLDT Home has two service categories targeting two broad consumer groups. First is Home Fiber, which is designed for residential clients. Second is Home Biz Fiber, which is created to address the connectivity needs of small businesses. Keep in mind that both tiers have subcategories targeting clients with specific needs.

Compared to PLDT’s service bundles from previous years, the PLDT plans for 2022 are much more streamlined. On your end, this means that you won’t have to deal with overwhelming choices.

One of the two main PLDT plans for 2022, Home Fiber is a powerful broadband service designed for households.

PLDT Home Fiber not only provides unlimited internet access but also telephone service. Currently, it has two subcategories: Fiber Unli and Fiber Plus.

For both subcategories, speeds have been upgraded while the prices remain the same, making the bundles truly great deals. Furthermore, all plans come with a value-added entertainment service in the form of free Lionsgate Play access.[2]
