Foodie friends, I know we are always on the hunt for great food, and one of the best ways to spot great restaurants is by surfing online or checking blogs such as A-Not-So-Popular Kid. Due to this heavier dependence and usage of internet, our old broadband may not be able to keep up. This is one of the motivations why PLDT launched another product among its line that will revolutionize home-surfing as it utilizes the power of Long-Term Evolution or commonly known as the LTE!

I know that you are raising an eyebrow (perhaps even both, but that's kinda weird), since the internet of PLDT sometimes gets shaky. Honesty compels me to admit that I need to deal with those stuff occasionally too, but we've been with PLDT for almost a decade, and all the stable days just drown out those that are not. Still, I am hoping that this new Ultera will be much better, which I believe PLDT is committed to do.

Will the ULTERA work in your home if you are in a condo? 
This is one of the questions I raised, and they provided me an explanation regarding the matter. Before you can have your PLDT Ultera, a crew will first check the availability of LTE in your area and particularly in the place you reside (i.e. home or condo). If the signal is viable, you'll proceed with the rest of the application.

This is how the Ultera device looks like:

A portion of the program illustrated how fast the LTE speed of Ultera through the #SpeedYouCantBeat challenges.

The first one was burger eating versus downloading 10 songs.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this PLDT Ultera product launch, and I have to say that I was impressed with the newest offering! Hence, if the LTE happens to be available in your place, I urge you to make the switch (e.g. from the regular wired broadband).
