MANILA - Cignal TV and Radius Telecoms, a subsidiary of Manila Electric Company, announced on Tuesday that they are forming a new pay TV and home internet service called RED Broadband.
Radius Telecoms is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meralco, which is part of Manny Pangilinan-led Metro Pacific Investments Corp.
Cignal is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MediaQuest Holdings under the PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund, which is also part of the Pangilinan conglomerate.
Radius and Cignal said RED Broadband is offering to consumers unlimited fiber internet and pay TV starting at P1299 per month.
The new service competes directly with Sky which also provides pay TV and home broadband services.
Earlier this month, Pangilinan said he had dropped his unsolicited bid to acquire Sky amid worries that antitrust regulators may review the deal.
sakto sky and converge down
Will they resurrect the now-defunct Red Mobile?
I believe red mobile was a smart subsidiary while red fiber is under meralco so magkaiba. Red mobile was also telco, red fiber will be similar to sky which is internet and tv.
di ko lang maisip bakit kailangan ni MVP na gumawa pa ng isang broadband service. meron na sya PLDC saka SMART broken, magdadagdag pa ng isa pero ano guarantee na hindi magiging bulok ang service na yan para hindi ma cannibalize yung existing market nung former broadband providers. lolz
^They would sell bundled cable and broadband service, unsure if coax since PLDT has Fibr Plus with Cignal via fiber lines. If they can only sell a satellite-based internet that would definitely sell
PLDT Fiber line pa din ang gagamitin ng Red Fiber Broadband...
Since Pldt offer Cignal, add on sa fiber plans nila...
Naisip nila na mas maganda introduce a new company that offers broadband and TV HD channels that can compete SKY with the same flatform... karamihan kasi Sky are using old coax.... limited pa din ang fiber...
Good alternative. Wala kasi silbi sa akin yung free landline. Mas maapreciate ko yung free cable tv with my fiber internet.
Red Broadband plans, download speed, add-ons, and boosts
