SkyBroadband Offers 112mbps Internet Bandwidth!

With a commitment to elevate the Filipino Internet experience, SkyBroadband recently launched its 112mbps ultra high speed Internet bandwidth service. Wow lng (lol).

The fastest Internet plan available for residential customers so far, SkyBroadband 112mbps is almost 10x faster than its current high speed connections of 6mbps and 12mbps offered through cable Internet service.

Personally, I am already jumping for joy with an 12mbps band width. :)

This development is touted to bring the Philippines closer to first-world country standards such that of Japan which delivers an advertised average of 205 mbps overall according to a survey conducted by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) among 30 countries.

With our 112 mbps service, SKY is positioned to deliver the fastest residential broadband speeds in the country.  While the roll-out is in its initial stages, the ultra high-speed broadband offering is a testament that SKY is at the forefront of pushing greater broadband speeds that can improve access to productivity, entertainment and information sources and applications on the Internet.” Ray Montinola, SKY’s Marketing Head shares.
I think this would be very practical if you'll be watching digital TV/video streaming through the Internet where buffering is almost nill. Downloading enormous files, video streaming, watching high-definition videos in Youtube and others is a swift with a 112mbps connection.

But before we jump in joy and amazement, this ultra-high speed plans is initially offered only to Rockwell in the following buildings: Rizal Tower, Hidalgo Place, Luna GardensAmorsolo Square, Joya Lofts and Towers and at The Manansala. SkyBroadband would like to test the market and rollout in a limited area first before expanding further in hte near future. The 112mpbs Internet bandwidth is also priced at Php19,999.
