Globe and PLDT have started deploying more fiber optics around the Metro Manila and the Philippines earlier this year. And with Converge ICT widening the availability of their Fiber Internet services, it would be great to put these three in a complete plan comparison including the price.

500GB data (July 2017)
Completing the Globe Platinum Broadband plans are Plan 4499, 6999, and 9499 with 1Gbps speed or 1000Mbps.
Best Fiber Optic Internet Connectivity
Between the three, Globe has the best Fiber plans and choices with Converge ICT getting the cheapest plan offering. PLDT, on the other hand, is stuck with 50Mbps but I heard they will be ramping up their Fiber offerings this year too.
Alternative broadband via Sky Cable or DSL
If you’re not needing those crazy speeds, getting a DSL or wired internet plans are more economical since base plans start for as low as P1,000 a month.
Opting for Sky Cable is also a better deal if you want to subscribe in cable TV channels. Sky Broadband has plan 1899 at the moment that offers up to 50Mbps download speed, 5Mbps upload rate, and free TV channels.
