PLDT Home Bro Ultera - Fast LTE Connection at Home
Unknown2:21 PM 1 sweets for free!

Last April 29, I was at the SMX Convention Center to celebrate the launch of PLDT HOME Bro's addition to its family. They officially launched PLDT HOME Bro Ultera—the TD-LTE-powered (Time-Division Duplex-Long Term Evolution) high-speed wireless Internet connection for the home offering speeds of up to 10 Mbps.

Ultera is a perfect fit for digitally active families like me. Never have I imagined in my life that my mom would be into social media (Facebook and Instagram), but ever since she got herself an iPad, she couldn't stop stalking me in the internet! Of course, it came with sweet and unexpected punchlines like "Add me on Whatsapp." or "I'll teach you how to connect your bluetooth."

During the event, they gave us clickers so that the audience can participate in a game. The fastest person to answer the question correctly gets an iPad mini! Guess who was one of the fastest person to answer a question correctly -- ME! yaye! Being fast definitely has its advantages!

The world has evolved in many ways I did not expect and Ultera allows for continuous family fun and bonding whether it’s through social media, online streaming, or downloading.

PLDT HOME Bro Ultera also introduced their new brand ambassadors - the Teng siblings specifically brothers Jeric and Jeron, and sister Almira. If you follow local basketball, then you know that the Teng brothers are known for their rivalry on court during the 76th season of the UAAP.

Jeric, who now plays for the Philippine Basketball Association, was a shooting guard for the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers, while younger brother Jeron is a forward for the De La Salle Green Archers. Almira, on the other hand, is currently a fine arts major at UST.

The Teng family are self-confessed home buddies who enjoy downloading and watching movies together, and entertaining themselves through music and social media. At the event, they showed us how quick Ultera can download videos, music and upload photos, in comparison to the speedy skills of the Teng brothers and other people with the fastest skills.

PLDT HOME Bro Ultera is currently available in three plans:
  • Ultera Basic, with speeds of up to 3 Mbps
  • Ultera Max, which reaches up to 5 Mbps
  • Ultera Pro, which delivers speeds of up to 10 Mbps.

Ultera also comes with special add-on services like enjoying over hundreds of blockbuster flicks from clickplay and thousand of episodes of Asianovelas and Tagalized animes from MyPinoyTV. Music savvy people like me can also have access to thousand of music hits from Spinnr, while the youngsters (that includes me) can enjoy the latest EA Games. For the more mature members of the family (that's you mommy) they can get the latest news and information from News5 Everywhere.

PLDT HOME Bro Ultera is also fast enough to support the use of PLDT HOME TVolution, a powerful Android device that turns ordinary TV into an Internet TV. Watch out for that!
