Just recently, Globe announced that it has upgraded the speeds of its Fiber or Tattoo Platinum offering here in the Philippines. The Plan 2499 of Tattoo Platinum is the latest and most affordable high-speed internet connection you could get for P2499 pesos. This is, in fact, the cheapest when compared to current’s PLDT and Sky Cable broadband offerings and plans being offered in Metro Manila and other parts of Philippines.

Unfortunately, both Globe’s and PLDT’s Tattoo Platinum and Fibr services, respectively, are only available to select areas in Metro Manila as expansion has just begun. The two companies, however, have started expanding their fiber connections to cater more homes including to those in provinces such as on Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Bulacan and other regions.

Check out the Internet Broadband comparison below which includes DSL, 4G LTE and Fiber plans both from Globe and PLDT. We also included Sky Cable on the list alongside with the data caps, a service fee of the land line, modem installation and wifi router.

Hi! I'm Jade, an Electronics and Communications Engineer and tech enthusiast. I am the editor-in-chief here at ManilaShaker and on our YouTube channel. If you have questions, suggestions or anything we could talk about you can find me Instagram and Twitter @jadejardinico.


  1. ano po yung +1000 fee sa GLOBE Tattoo Home Broadband 2499 and up..one time fee lang ba siya or buwan buwan may +1000?

  2. Called Globe today. Their GLOBE Tattoo Home Broadband 1099 actually has a 2GB data limit per day. After hitting the allowance, you get throttled by 30%. It was unclear if your speed is reduced BY 30% or reduced TO 30%.

  3. Sa PLDT ang pinaka worst is the Ultera yung 30gb/month means 1gb/day limited to 4 devices.

    yung DSL and Fiber ok yun sila. Kay sa Ultera dont let the 4G fool you

    just sharing my Ultera Problem at hndi ka maka alis sa 36mth lock in period
    plss i advice you not ..wag kayo mag ULTERA you will regret it…

  4. Okay. Help. I live in Las piñas and my family and I have been using PLDT DSL plan 1,299php a month. We all know and can’t change the fact that the Philippines has the crapiest internet in the world and we can’t do anything about that. I am trying to make an online English teaching my full time job and with my internet provider, the Internet is on and off particularly from 10am to 8pm every single day.
    What would make it better?? Should I switch to a different provider? Should I upgrade? My mom already downgraded before because one, 1299php is expensive and two, the Internet connection hasn’t changed anyways.
    I am frustrated and I do not know what choice to make. HELP ANYONE?

  5. Thank you for sharing your views about our crappy ISPs 🙁 Did I get it right that Sky is the best choice among all of them for now? Really having a hard time deciding which one to get. Also, I live somewhere in Bataan Hills and I want to know if my location could affect the speed of my internet connection. Please give me a feedback if anyone of you here live in Bataan Hills.Thanks guys!

  6. Hi! I am from bacoor, would like to ask if PLDT plan 1299 reliable on our location. i am torn between sky and pldt.. which one should i get?
    Thank you

  7. we’re currently using the 1299 plan, which is at 3mbps. But ever since mid-June, my net went really down. It seats at 68kbps download(Tops) and at 26kbps(Low) with 300+ ping. Kept on calling them and even as far as going to one of their office at Southmall AND still I was played the fool. They never went during the course of the three months(June, July and August). After calling and calling and calling them for like 3 times a week, they finally arrived (mid September). And I was so furious inside, since the electrician that went can’t even seem to even understand what i’m saying when it comes to ping and bits and shit. So in the end he replaced the box and said to observe the speed BUT FUCK, it went more shitty as hell. So I did reported it back every day since that time but still PLDT hasn’t even replied yet again. So pissed and effed up, can’t download or play online games since June and I’m as ticked out as hell.

    So any tips and information would help bro in this issue. I was planning on shifting to Skybroadband, since friends in the same village are saying the area connection was good BUT of course I just dont want to leave my current plan just sitting and me paying pldt for this unrendered service.

    • Sky’s speed offering is good but I find the speed sometimes unstable at peak hours, but if you’re on desktop (wired LAN) then it’s a good choice. Other than that, have you checked you area if they have fiber (Coverge ICT or Globe)?

      • Still havent checked with conv ICT and globe, but with fiber pldt its still not available in our area. thnx for the inputs

      • Don’t go with SkyCable, if in PLDT you have a shitty connection, in SkyCable, you get NO CONNECTION. I shifted to PLDT and availed the 5MBPS plan, as of now, i’m happy because even if my sister is downloading her torrent or watching youtube, I can still play my online games

  8. Mga sir ask ko Lang my 10 unit ako ng pc d abot ang pldt samin. Gamit ko ngaun e click broadband ng cat v. Laging lag. My prob daw system nila sa online game. Kung mag globe ba ako na 2 na 5 Mbps di sya unli pero my net limiter ako ok na ba un?

  9. I would Really like to share my experience with SkyCable, We live in Laguna and thought of having a cable and internet so we availed with SkyCable’s 3MBPS plan with cable TV, everything is good at first, then after 3 months, shits happen, most of the time, you cannot play during peak hours, morever if someone downloads or watches Youtube. then this 2016, on September, I finally lost connection, I coordinated it with Sky on their facebook account that I’m having no connections, they keep saying that I should refresh my modem, I keep refreshing it but nothing changes. October and November came and still no connection. (I continue to communicate with them through their facebook account, still no service came) At last the connection was partially restored in December 20 2016. and there service crew came (even though the connection was already stable) when I asked for a refund for the 2 months that I paid but without any connections, they told me that the periods which would count as refund would be those which are covered within a reference number, so meaning, without any reference number, you cannot avail any refund or whatsoever. So I advice you this, Never avail sky cable or you’ll get stressed out as shit, I know its more costly in PLDT, but atleast its somewhat stable because we are connected through nodes instead of cable connection. Using nodes, you wont have a problem when connecting to the internet even though it is peak hours. I would also advice you that, If you really opt to go with SkyCable, MAKE SURE THAT IN EVERY COMPLAINT THAT YOU SEND TO THEM, GET A REFERENCE NUMBER! This is important specially if you are complaining about no connection, they will never EVER consider any other documents which you would give them, only the reference number which they gave you. AND, do not inquire with their facebook account, you’ll never achieve anything (this would be hard for those who have work since you really need to go to their office and wait for your turn in the complaint desk, which is always full)

  10. Hello Ask ko lang maganda ba connection ng PLDT balak ko kasi magpa install sa bahay somewhere in Lancaster Westwood 2. magkano po ba ang charge ng first time pag pa connect sa bahay..at magkano ang 25MBPS monthly na babayaran…Pls. waiting for your reply as soon as possible.
    Thank you
