A home Internet that's unreliable and slow as heck? In this age of memes, online games, selfies, and HD vids, that's just sad. The good news is we're now seeing more and more service providers upping the ante on connectivity speeds. Take communications giant PLDT, for example. With its Home Fibr service, you can enjoy blazing-fast Internet with speeds of up to a whopping 100Mbps. Huwaw!
For our clueless bros, Fibr is PLDT's new high-speed residential Internet service, and, let us tell you, it ain't your average online connection. Compared to the more conventional DSL connections that use copper wires, it sports next-gen fiber-optic cables to serve insane Internet speeds that will make your 1Mbps connection look kakarag-karag.
And to make the deal even sweeter, Fibr now offers the streaming of Cignal Digital TV channels to subscribers. For a minimum P300 on top of the monthly subscription fee, users will be able to enjoy 50 or more Cignal channels and stream them to up to three displays at home. As they say, the more, the merrier!
So yeah, having an über-fast Internet connection like PLDT Fibr is the dream. Too bad we still have to be content on, well, dreaming. But, if by some miracle the tech gods smiled and gave us a 100Mbps connection for one day, we'll go absolutely full throttle in maximizing that speed by doing the following crazy things:
1. Download a hundred movies in one day (from legit sources, of course)
There's a lot to choose from if you know where to look
Once we've tasted online nirvana even for only 24 hours, we'll have withdrawal symptoms after letting go. Having fruit-of-fast-Internet movies stored in our devices will help manage our clingy selves by providing us with entertainment for weeks, months, or even years to come. Of course—and we can't stress this enough—go for legit sources and pay for your flicks, alryt?
Doing the math: An 8GB movie file—which is already quite large—will theoretically be done in as little as 11.5 minutes with a 100Mbps connection, so downloading 99 more is possible in one day.
2. Play online games walang tulugan
Kagulo; just the way we like it!
We love online games. Too bad we don't share the same sentiment when it comes to lags and slow-downs which accompany Internet gaming, especially with titles that have top-notch graphics. With a blazing-fast connection (and a nice rig), we'll be able to enjoy seamless online gaming until the wee hours of the morning, something which a regular 1Mbps connection might not be able to consistently give.
Our targets: We'll go all out on gaming by playing online games that are a nightmare for devices with inaamag hardware and slow Internet connections like StarCraft II, Diablo III, and DoTA 2.
NEXT: Because we want the Internet to know us!
