Ultera service was tested to deliver speeds that are 21x faster than Canopy and 6x faster than WiMax. It is intended for customers requiring high-speed connectivity, but are unable to have access via hard-wired networks.

PLDT HOME has been beta testing Ultera at over 200 pilot sites nationwide, with particular emphasis in rural areas where Internet infrastructures are not as developed.

PLDT HOME Bro Ultera is being rolled out in key areas such as Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Bataan, Isabela, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Aurora, Cagayan, Abra, and Nueva Vizcaya in Northern and Central Luzon; Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Quezon, Sorsogon, and Palawan in Southern Luzon; Aklan, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Bukidnon, and Leyte in the Visayas; and Misamis Oriental, Zamboanga del Sur, Agusan del Sur, Misamis Occidental, Lanao del Norte, and Sultan Kudarat in Mindanao.

Ultera is available in three different plans: Ultera Basic, Ultera Max, and the top of the line Ultera Pro, clocking in speeds of up to 3 Mbps, 5 Mbps, and 10 Mbps, respectively.

“TD-LTE technology can go as fast as 42 Mbps, but we are initially offering these three plans to ensure that all PLDT HOME Bro Ultera subscribers get to consistently enjoy the optimum wireless Internet experience in their homes,” PLDT assistant vice president and head of PLDT HOME Fixed Wireless Solutions said.

Ultera has a dedicated infrastructure and is powered by PLDT's s extensive fiber network, which stands at 78,000 kilometers.

PLDT says that HOME Bro Ultera also has the capacity to run PLDT HOME TVolution, a powerful Android device that turns an ordinary TV into an Internet TV. For more information on PLDT HOME Bro Ultera, log on to
