^3mbps is their capping?
whether or not the word "their" is a typo changes the meaning of the sentence. I'll cover both "is their" and "is there"
1. no, 3mbps is not their capping, that is their level of throttling.
you are using the term capping wrong, just like han solo uses the term parsec (a unit of distance) to describe how fast he ran the Kessel run (which involves a unit of time).
unless you live in a place with deteriorating copper lines DSL is capable of faster than 3mbps. But unless you subscribe to higher plans, pldt will throttle
your speed to whatever your plan is. So plan 999 is throttled to 3mbps. Throttling is like a universal speed limit sa highway. Kahit anong vehicle only up to X speed.
is self explanatory. Everything is mabagal only at peak hours
is like, 2 different speed limits trucks and buses up to 80kph, private cars up to 100kph. PLDT does this but not always. Looks like its dependent on time and place, not all places and not all times naka on ang traffic shaping ng pldt but we are not 100% sure. With traffic shaping only certain types of data like say youtube are mabagal. Other streaming video sites may or may not be affected and normal downloading including downloading a youtube video is at the usual throttle speed of 3mbps for plan 999
always involves an amount of data. After X amount of data is uploaded/downloaded then either mapuputol ang net or babagal. Before that it will run at the usual speed
Except for one DSL and one fibr plan, PLDT dlsl and fibr are cap less for now
