PLDT joins consortium to build a submarine cable

The telco said it joined the Asia Direct Cable (ADC) Consortium, which is composed of CAT, China Telecom, China Unicom, Singtel, SoftBank Corp., Tata Communications, and Viettel. 

The project, PLDT said, will boost connections in East and Southeast Asian regions as it will link the Philippines, China (Hong Kong SAR and Guangdong Province), Japan, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

PLDT expects the undersea network to increase its capacity for internet and digital services as the project will have multiple pairs of high capacity optical fibers and is designed to carry more than 140 terabits per second of traffic. 

This will also complement the Pangilinan-led group's extensive fiber cable network.

The ADC will further improve PLDT's network resiliency by strengthening its data links to Asia and the rest of the world. This will help PLDT to address the expanding demand for more digital services for both enterprises and our individual customers, said PLDT Chief Revenue Officer and Smart President Al S. Panlilio.

The consortium targets to complete the ADC cable system by the fourth quarter of 2022.
