So the Globe Fiber plan we’re on now (it doesn’t seem to have a name, some marketing guy should look into this) has a max speed of 50MBPS for PHP5000 monthly. My previous PLDT Fibr plan had a max speed of 15MBPS for PHP5500. Clearly the Globe plan is better both in terms of price and speed.
Some background first, we’re a family of 5 and all of us use the internet to varying degrees. I download a lot of TV shows (720p or 1080p), my brother watches a lot of online videos and plays a lot of online games. My mom uploads a lot of stuff to Facebook and she’ll be the first to complain if the internet is slow.
Most of the business of Alcoves is also done online so a reliable connection is paramount.
As such we don’t mind paying for internet that is speedy. It’s a luxury but one, for us, that is well worth it.
