Fiber internet connection is slowly creeping up to our homes and with it being more and more available in the metro side of the Philippines, some of us now have the decision to make if we’re going to switch or not. Let’s take a look at all the telco’s who are offering fiber internet connection and compare them side-by-side to see who’s the best. Companies that offer fiber internet connections are Converge ICT, Globe and PLDT, but we’re also including Sky Broadband as they also offer broadband connections with fiber-like speeds.

Price to Speed ratio

As you can see, the cheapest fiber internet connection that you can get is the FiberX 1500 plan from ICT Coverge which is also the fastest offering up to 15 Mbps and an unlimited volume allocation. Second place goes to Globe with their Plan 1599 offering 15 Mbps but with a limited volume allocation of 150GB.

Winner: ICT Converge / FiberX 1500

Runner-up: Globe / Plan 1599

 

Value for Money

If you’re looking for a bang-for-the-buck plan with a good speed and great deal of volume, Globe also offers the Plan 2499 with 1TB of data and 100mbps speed and ICT Converge takes the cake as the runner-up as it offers 100 Mbps and unlimited volume with their FiberX 3500 plan. We think that Globe wins this round as 1TB is sufficient enough for the regular user.

Winner: Globe / Plan 2499

Runner-up: ICT Converge / FiberX 3500

 

Fastest Connection

If we’re going to talk about the fastest internet connection that you can get without thinking about the price tag behind it, Globe offers the Plan 9499 with whopping 1GBps speed but with a limited volume allocation of 6TB. The second place still goes to Globe as they also offer the Plan 6999 with a speed of 500 Mbps and 3TB of data.

The least expensive plan that you can get is also from ICT Converge with their FiberX 1500 that offers 15mbps and unlimited volume. Second place goest to Globe with their plan 1599 that offers the same speed but limits your data to about 150GB.

Winner: ICT Converge / FiberX 1500

Runner-up: Globe / Plan 1599

 

Unlimited Connection

If you want to have the cheapest connection with no limits on data volume, the best deal still goes to ICT Converge with their FiberX 1500 with 15mbps and unlimited volume. PLDT comes in second place with their Plan 1699 that offers a slower speed of 5mbps.

  • The most important thing to consider is reliability. We have Fiber X in QC and my friend in Alabang. They are both slow. I’ve also read of people complaining about after sales service of Converge is very poor.

  • You didn’t mention that PLDT’s 3499 plan comes with free Cignal basic plan. Wouldn’t that qualify it as a contender for your “Value for Money” category?
