Planet Cable offers bundled 3Mbps unlimited broadband for PhP 674

Unlimited internet!

Published

on

Planet Cable might have the cheapest broadband plan available in the Philippines. And before you guys rant about throttling and data caps, they only offer unlimited internet. The catch, as always, is the coverage area.

If you are looking to install fixed broadband at your place, you might want to check out Planet’s latest offers. Too bad they only offer their residential broadband plans bundled with their existing cable subscription.

The cheapest available plan has a monthly service fee of PhP 674 which includes a Lite Cable plan with 36 SD channels and 3Mbps unlimited internet. Not bad, right? If you want slightly faster speeds, a 5Mbps bundled plan is priced at PhP 824/month while a 10Mbps bundled plan goes for PhP 1,324/month.

The best value would be the 20Mbps bundled plan for PhP 1,699/month. It’s considerably cheaper than PLDT or Globe’s 20Mbps fiber plan, plus it also comes with a cable subscription. It doesn’t beat Converge’s FiberX 1500 plan that has 25Mbps speed, though.

Planet Cable’s coverage is pretty limited in select areas of Antipolo, Cavite, Batangas, Iloilo, and Laguna. It’s best to contact them first through their Facebook page or website.
