I recently went to PLDT’s new Concept Store at the 3rd Floor Cyberzone of SM Seaside City Cebu. Despite being invited to their opening, I couldn’t go because I had to catch up with work. Because I had free time shortly after, I decided to go to their store. They said that the store has PLDT’s Home of the Future. Which begs the question:
What is inside PLDT’s Home of the Future?
Well, I’m here to show you just that! Here’s my video of a short tour of their concept store!
For starters, PLDT really puts its products front and center in the store. It mainly showed off the PLDT Home Telpad, the Smart Watch, and their broadband internet products!
You can try them out when you enter the store, watch some channels that are available on Cignal! Most channels like HBO, CNN, Basketball TV, and NBA TV are available in HD on PLDT’s partner satellite TV network.
You can also try out the Broadband Visualizer where you can know how fast a video can load or a video file can be downloaded on PLDT’s different internet plans!
Speaking of PLDT’s internet plans, the PLDT Concept Store also has Smart TVs that connect to the various internet choices that PLDT Home offers.
Of course, I was really excited to try out PLDT Home Fibr! Ever since I knew that PLDT was putting up their internet lines through fiber cables, I REALLY REALLY want to have one!
The best way to check the internet speed of Home Fibr was through YouTube videos, and I was really amazed!
The video rarely shows buffering issues, even at 1080p resolution! Even when watching 4K videos, I can definitely say that PLDT’s Home Fibr service is one of its best internet service yet! If only it’ll be available in our new place next year. Hmmm.
The PLDT Home Internet Speed Test!
Another thing I tried in the Smart TVs is to do a speed test of each of their internet plans!
After that, I checked out the service area of the concept store. One thing that I find to be cool is their Video Call Customer Service Hotline. You get to talk with a PLDT representative about the available internet plans and value-added services that come with it.
Another thing that you can use is the touchscreen customer service device called “InfoTouch”. Here, you can ask for your account and billing information, available plans for upgrade, and more!
All in all, I like what PLDT is doing by having a Concept Store. Although I think this isn’t an original idea (try to guess why), I think it is good for PLDT to do this so that its current and future customers get to experience what it feels like to be in the Home of the Future. I just hope that PLDT offers more and more reasons for us to get our internet connection from them.
