PLDT Home Fibr Claims Top Spot on the Netflix ISP Speed Index for Q2 – Q3 2016
As the demand for video streaming increases, so does the need for high-speed internet as a complement. Even with an endless library of well-loved TV shows and films on Netflix, streaming and watching them online can’t be enjoyed if paired with inconsistent connection and buffering.
With world leading internet television network Netflix available in the country, Filipinos can enjoy seamless high-definition (HD) and 4K streaming of their favorite entertainment content especially when packaged with the country’s most powerful broadband PLDT Home Fibr.
Ranked as the Philippines’ top performer on the Netflix ISP Speed Index from April to October 20161, PLDT Home Fibr delivers speeds of up to 1 Gbps and symmetrical download and upload speeds, enabling subscribers to make the most out of Netflix’s streaming service and enjoy their favorite Netflix Originals in HD or 4K lag-free. Subscribers may opt to stream Netflix content on their HDMI-ready TV using the TVolution Stick whether through browser or by downloading the application from the Microsoft Store.
“As we continue to reinforce and widen our strongest connections, we will also continue to enhance our content offerings through global partnerships with industry leaders like Netflix,” PLDT VP and Home Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “These are very exciting times for internet TV in the Philippines, and we are honored to lead the way with a partner like Netflix.”
Netflix continually adds new TV programs and films to the service, bringing the joy of entertainment to over 86 million members in over 190 countries. Its library includes the most in-demand TV series like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Marvel’s Daredevil and Luke Cage, among others. Today, Netflix has one of the largest catalogues of 4K content, with over 600 hours of 4K content by the end of 2016.
As PLDT Home Fibr reinforces its position as the nation’s most powerful broadband with its widest fiber coverage reaching up to 2.5 million homes, more Filipino families, from Ilocos Norte to down south in Cotabato, can enjoy the best entertainment content from around the world right in the comforts of home, for as low as P1,899 per month.
To get started on a powerful and seamless entertainment experience at home through Netflix and Fibr, PLDT Home subscribers simply have to add on to their monthly bills. They can choose from three Netflix plans starting at P370 for the Basic Plan. Users also get one free month after sign-up. For additional viewing screens and HD and 4K viewing options, subscribers can opt for the Standard Plan at P460 per month or the Premium Plan at P550 per month.

The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs (internet service providers) around the globe, and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times and fewer interruptions.
