Digital services provider PLDT HOME has fortified its leadership in fixed broadband, taking a market share of over 70 percent at the end of the third quarter of 2015.
PLDT HOME, a unit of leading telco Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company, remained the preferred broadband provider in the country as it registered double-digit growth in digital services such as Telpad, the all-in-one tablet, landline and broadband, triple-play service where broadband and landline services are bundled with Cignal digital TV, as well as the home monitoring system FamCam.
“PLDT HOME continues to strengthen its leadership with more digital services via the Connected Home,” said PLDT and Smart EVP and Head of Consumer Business Ariel P. Fermin. “The fixed line subscriber base reached about 2.3 million at the end of the third quarter, 54 percent of whom have fixed broadband subscriptions.”
At the start of the third quarter, PLDT HOME announced a content roster bundled with broadband subscriptions from Southeast Asia’s number one video-on-demand provider, iflix, and the region’s leading broadcaster, Fox International Channels, to live HD channels from Cignal.
It also launched Quadplay, a bundling offer where mobile services are packaged with voice, data, and cable television. It is the mobile service that contains PLDT HOME DSL broadband, PLDT landline, Cignal Digital TV and Smart mobile.
PLDT HOME Marketing Director Gary Dujali said: “Following a strong Q3 performance, PLDT HOME introduced the TVolution stick—a device that turns any HDMI-capable TV to a fully functional Windows computer, and more recently, PLDT HOME Fibr rolled out speed boosts for all subscribers and broke new ground with the unveiling of the country’s first 1 Gbps broadband connection, further enriching PLDT’s product portfolio for a digitally connected home.”
The PLDT Group’s fixed and wireless networks, with an extensive fiber optic footprint that spans over100,000 kilometers, enables it to offer reliable broadband services that can deliver voice, video, and data at faster speeds and larger capacities through various devices – from computers, tablet, and cellphones, to television sets.
