Mario G. Tamayo, Head of Technology at PLDT-Smart, said the Ookla report only reflected the group's continuous network investment despite the coronavirus pandemic.

PLDT earlier said it already spent around PHP 260 billion in the last five years to boost its network infrastructure.

For 2021, Alfredo Panlilio, PLDT chief revenue officer and Smart Communications President and CEO, said the group may invest between PHP 88 billion to PHP 92 billion.
