PLDT partners with Uber
PLDT Home, the broadband unit of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., has teamed up with the world’s leading ride-sharing tech company Uber to bring the trailblazing transport service for Filipino families to experience a richer digital lifestyle.
PLDT Home and Uber recently formalized a strategic partnership where the telco’s broadband subscribers can more easily enjoy the benefits of the innovative transport service when they download the Uber app on their computers, Telpads, and any smart devices at home.
As part of the exclusive offer, PLDT HOme Fibr subscribers who are first-time Uber riders will get two free Uber rides worth up to P500 each, while Telpad and DSL subscribers using Uber for the first time will get one free ride worth up to P300, starting Oct.1.
"PLDT HOME and Uber share the same vision of providing our customers with digital solutions that add value to their daily lives, in this case, safe, reliable and affordable rides within Metro Manila. We are confident that this partnership will break new ground in the country’s digital landscape,” PLDT vice president and head of Home marketing Gary Dujali said.
PLDT Home accounted for a market share of over 70 percent in the first half of the year, as it boosts its broadband service with an array of digital services.
Its robust fixed and wireless networks supported by the country’s most expansive fiber optic network, spanning more than 100,000 kilometers, allow PLDT Home to provide the digital lifestyle needs of its subscribers.
