PLDT Home, Smart pioneer data sharing service in Philippines
(The Philippine Star) - January 9, 2016 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – PLDT and Smart Communications, the country’s leading telecommunications and digital services providers, have teamed up to offer the Philippines’ first data plan that enables subscribers to a home DSL service to share their data allocation with mobile phones of their family.

Under its new Speedster Fam Plan 1299, PLDT Home DSL offers five times faster speeds of up to 10 megabits per second (Mbps) and a monthly data allocation of 50 gigabytes (GB). Moreover, subscribers who upgrade their Speedster Plan with a Smart mobile plan 399 or plan 600 can share six GB of the 50 GB monthly data allocation to their mobile phone lines which they can use even outside the home. Customers may get up to four Smart mobile phone lines bundled with their Speedster Fam Plan all conveniently billed under one subscription.

PLDT and Smart EVP and Consumer Business Group head Ariel P. Fermin said this new service takes off from the Filipino value of sharing. “Sharing is at the core of every Filipino family. We share everything, from food to stories, and memories, and now, data connectivity,” he said.

 “Now, more than ever, the strongest connections truly begin at home. With this unrivaled and powerful convergence of the country’s number one broadband provider, PLDT Home; and the undisputed leader in mobile services, Smart, we are going beyond the home and enriching mobile experiences of our subscribers. It’s certainly not just about the shared gigabytes but we humanize technology by empowering our customers to live their digitally driven lives to the fullest and strengthen the connections they have with their loved ones despite physical distance through the power of digital and mobile technology,” he added.
