Better connection in central PH

This, as the telco giant completed the activation of fiber optic cable (FOC) links connecting the islands to the rest of the country and the world.

These island provinces include: Marinduque, Romblon, Catanduanes, Masbate, Panay, Cebu, Siquijor, Bohol, Samar and Negros.

Part of PLDT's continuous efforts to expand the reach of its network across the country, the Enhanced Resiliency of DFON Loops 4 and 5 (eRDL45) project includes more than 2,000 kilometers of submarine and inland FOC links and also aims to make the network more resilient and ready to support future services, such as 5G.

The group said its home and enterprise subscribers can now experience fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services via PLDT Home.

Subscribers of Smart Communications—PLDT's wireless arm—can also expect a better mobile data experience.

PLDT's fiber infrastructure, which was at 743,700 kilometers as of end-2021, also supports Smart's mobile network by providing high-capacity links for its base stations.

Fiber is the future, and we’re bringing it now to more Filipinos. As we connect more islands in our country with fiber, we are able to deliver the best digital experience for our 5G/LTE and FTTH customers. These submarine cable links also improve our network's resiliency by providing alternate routes for data traffic in the event of fiber breaks, so our customers are always connected, said Mario G. Tamayo, Head of Technology at PLDT and Smart.
