Young champions in the field of volleyball have just been named the ‘Ultera Barkada’ at a special launch by PLDT Home at Annabel’s Restaurant in Quezon City. Known as the top volleyball celebrities of the country, the group of Alyssa Valdez, Jaja and Dindin Santiago, Rachel Daquis, Ara Galang, Mika Reyes, John Vic De Guzman and Peter Torres are all superstars in their own right.
“I am so excited to officially represent PLDT Home Ultera,” Valdez at the event. “I’m the type of person who goes all out in everything I do, not just in court, but also at home with family and friends. I value moments where I can stay home and have fun with my three brothers and this service lets us siblings go all out with movie marathons and video game play-offs.”
Multi-award-winning athlete Valdez is on of the country’s top volleybelles, the UAAP Season 77 MVP and the Shakey’s V-League 2015 Conference MVP. Joining her in the in the “barkada” are “Twin Towers” Dindin and Jaja Santiago, who have each garnered impressive titles to their names from Shakey’s V-League 2015. They are close friends on top of sisters and even now that Dindin is married, they are still able to keep in touch and maximize their bonding moments with the help of LTE enabled connection.
Meanwhile Philippine Super Liga 2015 Finals MVP Rachel Daquis comes from a close-knit family of seven people and strives to be an ideal role model for her two younger siblings, niece and nephew. UAAP Season 77 MVP Ara Galang makes the most of her free time through movie nights with her parents. UAAP standout Mika Reyes spends time at home taking care of her younger siblings and catching up with relatives through social media.
Completing the Ultera barkada family are top male volleyball icons Peter Torres, who is constantly protective of his four younger siblings, and John Vic De Guzman, who cherishes karaoke nights at home with his mom and siblings. Not only do these ambassadors excel in their sports and at home, but they are also all friends off the court.
With existing partnership with major volleyball leagues, PLDT Home Ultera is a strong advocate of sports excellence among the country’s youth. It is thus more than fitting to strengthen the association of the country’s prominent volleyball players to the brand.
“This is the power roster represents our brand is all about.” PLDT Vice President and Home Marketing Head Gary Dujali said. “Each of has gone all out in volleyball, rising to excellence through hard work and dedication. Now we’re showing the side of them that goes all out at home with family and friends. The Ultera lifestyle is about going all out in anything you do and we apply that mantra to our home-based Internet connection. When it comes to the Internet, some think that WiFi hotspots and Internet cafes are as good as it gets. But PLDT Home Ultera offers ultra-fast LTE connection and affordable broadband to enable all out fun at home so you don’t settle for anything less. Our Ultera barkada family embodies this message perfectly.”
