Smart Home is Here
Along with ABS-CBN’s over-the-top content platform iWantTV, PLDT partnered with several other global retail and entertainment giants. The list includes video streaming platform Roku, entertainment powerhouse Netflix, and e-commerce giant Amazon, among others.
Each partnership brings some form of digital entertainment to Filipinos. Netflix, Roku and iWantTV bring streaming and video-on-demand to homes, and Amazon will soon bring in the Kindle e-book reader to the country.
“This is a new era in digital as we make Filipino homes stronger, safer, more comfortable, and more enjoyable via PLDT’s Smart Home which has powerful connectivity and an integrated suite of innovative, reliable and family-friendly products and services,” said Oscar A. Reyes Jr., PLDT FVP and Head of Home Operations. “PLDT’s Smart Home is a home where digital innovations advance the security, safety, convenience and entertainment experiences at home and beyond. It is a home where communication and connection are made easier by digital technology.”
The Smart Home is powered by PLDT’s Home Fibr, delivering internet speeds of up to 1GBps. This allows for high speed browsing, and the country’s first symmetrical speed service which provides equal upload and download speeds.
PLDT Home comes with a data sharing feature where subscribers can share data to pre-connected Smart mobile accounts.
