Review: Globe Fiber to the Home Tattoo Platinum Plan

Review: Globe Fiber to the Home Tattoo Platinum Plan

After years of being on PLDT Fibr for our home ISP we recently switched to a Globe Fiber to the Home Tattoo Platinum Plan.

(Update: When I wrote this post the Globe plan I chose was 50Mbps, a couple of months later there was a price drop and for the same monthly fee, around PHP4500, my speed was now 200Mbps.)

As I’ve mentioned previously, Globe’s offer was 10% cheaper and it was more than 3x faster than our existing PLDT Fibr line.

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.

Review: PLDT Fibr

Review: PLDT Fibr

I’ve been talking a lot about telcos so I thought I would share my experience with the home broadband plans of both PLDT and Globe.

I was with PLDT Fibr for many years then switched to Globe’s Fiber offering. (The “Fibr” is not a typo, that’s how PLDT is marketing their Fiber connections. Wrong spelling is hip.)

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.
