PLDT continues network upgrade despite COVID-19

The telco giant said its fiber-to-the-home ports have now reached 700,000 across the Philippines, increasing its capacity to 10.2 million homes.

Butch G. Jimenez, Senior Vice President and Head of PLDT Home Business, said the group has been "relentless" in boosting its network despite restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Powered by the fastest broadband in the Philippines, our customers can work, study, earn, and enjoy better at home, Jimenez said.

PLDT also claimed it has the most extensive and advanced digital transport network in the Philippines with 25 core data centers, three cable landing stations, and 15 international submarine cable networks.

Mario Tamayo, PLDT-Smart Senior Vice President for Network Planning and Engineering, also said in the statement network upgrades are necessary to support the growing needs of PLDT Group's customers for data.

We continuously expand and upgrade our network to serve our customers’ growing demand for data and support all of our internet delivery platforms such as fiber fixed broadband, mobile data services via 4G and 5G, and carrier-grade Wi-Fi, Tamayo said.

In December, 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 this year.
