PLDT deploying submarine cable in Dipolog City

The industry giant recently announced that it began cable-laying operations in Dipolog City, linking its submarine fiber optic cable from the municipality of Zamboanguita in Negros Oriental

According to Mayor Darel Dexter Uy, PLDT's additional network infrastructure would complement the city's goal of promoting digital technology.

The project is also seen to create more jobs, subsequently bolstering the city's local economy hit by the pandemic, Uy said.

We are highly confident that expanding PLDT's fiber network through this project in Dipolog City will allow us to provide better services for our customers in Mindanao. With this, we hope to further support the growing connectivity requirements of more enterprises and businesses who are central to the economic recovery of the region, said Benbrackie Melasa, PLDT Mindanao head for Corporate Relationship Management.

Once completed, the project will loop in more than 700 kilometers to the company’s fiber network, further improving resiliency and service quality for PLDT's telco services in Mindanao.

Mario G. Tamayo, head of Technology at PLDT and Smart, said the submarine cable project is part of the group's commitment to providing better services, especially now that the country has yet to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the economy continues to open up with the easing of pandemic restrictions, connectivity remains to be key to empowering Filipinos' increasingly digital lifestyles, enabling livelihoods, online education, hybrid workplaces, day-to-day transactions and even entertainment needs. With and without the challenges of the pandemic, PLDT is here to support the connectivity needs of Filipinos, wherever they may be in the country, Tamayo said.
