PT&T vows high-speed satellite internet

In an interview with BusinessWorld, PT&T Senior Vice-President Ella Mae Ortega said pursuing the deal is vital to support the spike in demand for high-speed internet.

As the new normal calls for people to follow social distancing and lockdown protocols, the need for reliable internet that is efficient and sustainable has never been timelier and more important, especially in the remote areas, Ortega told BusinessWorld.

The firm said its broadband satellite internet services are powered by Kacific’s high-throughput Ka-band satellite Kacific1, which covers the Asia-Pacific region.

PT&T recently launched its latest very small aperture terminal (VSAT) product in partnership with the Singaporean company.

The company explained Ka-band technology promises to deliver "reliable, high-speed broadband internet" to far-flung areas.

We will follow a common goal to deliver affordable internet connectivity nationwide and join the rally in driving digital transformation in the country, Kacific’s Chief Commercial Officer Brandon Seir said.

In 2018, PT&T sought to snatch the third telco player status but was disqualified after failing to show certification of technical capability.
