Official PLDT Fibr thread (No piracy topics or hints)

  • As some of the users have pointed out here, there are modem/ONU that can be configured to bridge without PLDT's intervention and the speed won't be capped. In my case, the ONU was configured bridge but my 'profile' in their system was still in route mode (confirmed with 171). This was only fixed after I opened a ticket for them to properly configure my account/profile to bridge.

    I didn't notice this kasi I'm on plan 100 mbps, and when they upgraded the speed from 100 to 300 mbps, dun ko nalang napansin why my upload speed is already above 300, but my download speed is stuck.
  • oooohh, thanks @pjconoso
  • Hello, I'm planning to buy a UPS so I can plug it into my PLDT Modem, just wondering if the Internet Connection still going to work during brownout? just like DSL time? thank you.
  • @jimenezshown. yeah, gagana pa ang connection mo. i use the cyberpower ups UT1500E. it gives me roughly 6-8 hours of uptime.
  • I'm using one of these to power both the modem and a router, had a few brownouts a few months ago, and it did work well (no power-interruptions, even on my wired connection to my PC), I tested it once and it lasted 6hrs even with modem+router



    although one problem is, I recommended this to my colleague in pampangga, and the problem was then there was a power-outage in their location (12hrs, announced), the modem goes LOS after around 2hrs of power failure (the modem is still on) so my guess is that the PLDT generator running on their location only last 2hrs
  • ^ forgot to mention that even their smart cellphone got no signal after the modem got LOS --- and the globe cellphone also got disconnected a few hours after. on normal power-interruptions, there will be internet, but once the backbone goes out, then there's nothing you can do
  • maganda to ginawa ng pldt smart house bill pag naipasa na para naman hindi na hirap sa intrernet at signal, usually kasi ginagawa na lang yung health issue pero pera pera lang talaga labanan para makapag lagay ng telco infra sa isang lugar

    The bill mandates all housing projects, subdivisions, villages or other residential areas, including socialized housing projects to allocate 30% of the gross area for open space for the establishment of ICT infrastructure and related amenities.

  • @giomangi @baratzki Now I know. Thank you very much for the response and suggestions. :)

    Update, so nakausap na ako multiple agents, kagabi at today. The first one told me to call as umaga. The second one told me I need to have the initial ticket closed before requesting for bridge mode.

    So how to proceed? Ang ginagawa lang ng field technician is they closing the ticket and opening it again without confirmation. It's been a week now. Parang pinaglalaruan lang account ko.

  • ask ko lang mga sir kung nag ddecgnat pa din ang 171 for residential plan? thanks
  • @proxifier

    yes, bigay mo lang reason mo... need mo yan lalu na kung work from home ka...
  • @plutho

    Para saan ba yang CGNAT? Nag WFH din naman ako pero di naman ako nakaka experience ng issues.
  • @proxifier

    ano kaya magandang reason sir?
  • @rakistang_jeff

    bro, kung wala issue sa you CGNAT, that's fine... but for my work and security reasons.. i need my own public dynamic public ip.
  • ^exactly, people that have a reason will either make PLDT configure it, or have a workaround.

    if you just read it in the forum that CGNAT=bad, bridge=good, without any needs, then just let it be, it won't have any bad effect in general
  • re cgnat, in my parents house PLDT didn’t remove the CGNAT. they just mentioned that they can’t do it as the area is already migrated. tried a few times to no avail. i know i can’t really force them so i just dropped it.

    I usually call 171 midnight or madaling araw. You have to be confident in what you are asking for, and explain to them your situation; you have a better 3rd party router better equipped than the ONU provided. Be professional and courteous, it really goes a long way.

  • @all...

    tried to bridge mode a neighbor (PLDT) [AN5506-04-FA modem]...
    unit still has access to telnet, but... sadly, did not push thru...
    can bridge the unit but it can't get IP address...

    I may have been just lucky with my ONU or Account...

    only lan 1 or 4 works i don't remember what exact port, maybe you plugged in the wrong port.

    Eto yung ONU na need mo itawag sa PLDT di siya basta basta na bridge mode.

    pag fiber you dont need a power para sa line pag dsl need mo ng power sa main box ng dsl para gumana ang pldt dsl.
