PLDT targets faster broadband speed next year

PLDT-Smart Senior Vice President Mar Tamayo said this move would allow the country to compete in the global scene. 

Ang target namin for 2021 is to have a minimum speed of 30 Mbps (for mobile broadband) in Metro Manila and the key cities nationwide, Tamayo told lawmakers during a House hearing.

While the plan would initially cover the country's capital and key cities, the official said this would eventually "go outward and cover the rest of the population in a couple of years."

Tamayo also said PLDT's wireless arm Smart Communications would continue its 5G development and LTE expansion

For its fixed broadband users, the telco is eyeing to deliver a minimum internet speed of 20 Mbps. 

This is our way of really providing the speed that our subscribers are requiring for us. It takes a lot of investment but we are doing that, Tamayo said.

What do you guys think? PLDT users, are you guys excited?
