Meralco unit officially launches broadband internet service RED Fiber

With the objective of giving people options and alternatives to existing broadband networks, Radius Telecoms Inc. (Radius) in partnership with Cignal TV formally launches the newest broadband service RED Fiber.

In the “Get Ready for the RED Life” campaign, RED Fiber is looking at servicing areas not covered by sister company PLDT. RED Fiber is currently available in select areas in Metro Manila, Laguna, Cavite, Tagaytay, Rizal, and Bulacan.

“It is now a moral obligation that broadband service providers need to consistently deliver because aside from our need for entertainment, our means of livelihood and the education of our children are both at stake,” said Quiel Delgado, president and CEO of Radius Telecom. “This is the obligation that RED Fiber aims to deliver as pure end-to-end fiber network.”

Red Fiber aims to be subscribers’ ‘Broadband of Choices’

The need for a stable network has never been more pronounced than during the pandemic with companies enabling work-from-home setup and schools resorting to online classes. Areas with proper signals deprive employees and school children of the right to participate in the evolving digital landscape.

90-day trial

Since it was introduced a few months ago, RED Fiber has gained “a few thousand” subscribers and Delgado said they are eyeing to increase the numbers to 500,000 in about five years. To achieve this, the partnership with Cignal TV allows it to offer IPTV channels bundled with the internet.

Delgado also said RED Fiber is also offering a three-month trial wherein subscribers can opt-out “without questions asked.”

RED Fiber offers service packages that suit different household needs, including the Internet Only Plans and the Dual Play Plans, with added IPTV content provided by Cignal TV.

“As the #1 payTV provider in the country, bringing premium entertainment to our viewers is aligned with our mission. With Cignal TV’s partnership with Radius, we look forward to bringing the RED Life to more Filipino homes,” said Robert Galang, president and CEO, Cignal TV and TV5.
