It’s a tri-band gigabit router which allows you to maximize the full potential of your PLDT Home Fibr connection within your whole home. It’s a three-frequency wireless router composed of a 2.4 GHz wireless band offering up to 600 Mbps and two 5 GHz wireless bands delivering speeds of up to 1,300 Mbps, all at the same time, allowing subscribers to enjoy the full speeds of their Fibr connection over WiFi.

Coupled with the Smart Connect Technology, the AC 3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router automatically chooses and connects each device on the Fibr network to the best and cleared band available for the best connection every time. Simply put, it will amplify your PLDT Home Fibr connection to ultra-fast performance so, whether you are gaming, streaming or simply browsing, you are in for a seamless and lag-free experience.

And even if you’re not the most hard core tech geek, you can still easily control your network settings—like enable parental controls, block unwanted devices and create Wi-Fi guest networks—with an easy-to-manage interface. Users can even remotely manage interface from a smart phone or tablet.

PLDT Home Fibr subscribers can also opt for the AC 1900 Wi-Fi Router which packs just as much power with enhanced performance and maximum Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home with three detachable antennas, three power amplifiers and Dual Core Processor.
