PLDT is one of the biggest internet service providers (ISPs) in the Philippines offering different plans at different price points. But with millions of subscribers across the country, it’s no secret that some of its users would occasionally suffer from service disruptions, problems, and other issues.
But then again, being one of the largest in the country, PLDT has built a robust system and different channels and ways for you to reach them to address different concerns.
As an actual PLDT Fiber user for years, we’ve tried multiple ways to try and contact the telco giant to help address the concerns we may have like LOS (Loss of Signal), billing and others.
Based on our long experience, you can reach PLDT customer support through their hotline, emails, online forms, and a method we prefer is through social media (more on that later) as it’s just faster and more convenient.

- How to terminate your PLDT subscription
While it is our preferred method, different people have different preferences in reaching customer support. Some want prompt answers by making calls, some want to provide a detailed explanation by writing emails, etc.
But whichever you choose, we’ll be detailing the ways you can reach PLDT customer service. Let’s begin.

Ways to contact PLDT customer support
As stated earlier, there are tons of ways you can reach PLDT for service concerns. You can go with the traditional hotline, through social media, and more. We’ll be showing you all of that below.
What is the PLDT hotline number?
If you have a PLDT Fiber subscription, this means that you also have a PLDT landline, which you can use to easily contact the company’s customer service.
To reach their hotline, simply dial the number 171. This is free for PLDT landline, as well as for Smart, TNT, and SUN Cellular users.
But if you’re a Globe, DITO, or subscriber of any other network or telephone service, you can use the hotline +63 (2) 88888-171 instead. Standard call charges may apply, though.
Personally, we find this method the worst as they have long queues and you have to wait in line for hours until a representative picks up your call.
How to reach PLDT customer service via Twitter?
This is our preferred method. For any concerns, you can message @PLDT_Cares on Twitter. No need to stand on the phone waiting for a representative to pick up.
Just message them with your concern. Then, make sure you include your customer number and telephone number to make the process faster.
After a couple of hours, you’d get a reply attending to your concern, and as per our experience, a technician already visited our unit just two days since we raised our concern.
Contact PLDT customer service via Facebook
If you don’t have Twitter, you can also contact the telco via the PLDT Home Facebook page.
It features a chatbot so you can get replies promptly. As a standard, it will ask for your telephone number and account number to verify and easily address your concern.
Reach PLDT help support via the mobile app
Like a lot of top telco providers, PLDT also has a dedicated mobile app called the myPLDT Smart app that’s available on both Android devices via the Google Play Store and iPhones through the Apple App Store.
The app allows you to report and get a help ticket for your concerns. What’s more, you can also use it to manage your account, settle bills, and more.
How to book an appointment with PLDT customer service
If you want face-to-face interaction with a PLDT representative, you can book an appointment at your nearest PLDT location here. Simply pick your preferred branch, choose between virtual or in-store appointments, and the time and date.
This method is not just for after-sales transactions but also for new applications. It’s available from Monday to Friday from 8:30AM to 5:30PM.
If you’re a first-time applicant of PLDT Fiber, make sure you check if the service is available in your area.
What is the PLDT customer support email address?
If you still want to contact PLDT through email, you can do so through this address: email@example.com. Personally, we don’t recommend this route as it could lead to a long process of replying back and forth.
What details do I need to prepare when contacting PLDT Customer support?
To verify your account and address your problems properly, any of the methods above will ask for the subscriber’s name, the account number, and the designated telephone number.
It is also best to have your latest bill on hand as it contains all the relevant information that they may ask for.
