PLDT Enterprise, the B2B arm of PLDT Inc. has announced its continued commitment to service customers’ growing digital needs through fiber upgrade program at no added cost to its subscribers.
With its target to fully migrate copper-based services to fiber by the middle of 2022, the service improvements aim to provide a more reliable connection as businesses continue to further leverage on digital solutions to support their operations.
The migration from copper to fiber was started by PLDT Group in September 2020 as part of its 18-month modernization program to boost both PLDT Home and Enterprise customers’ internet service.
“The PLDT Group has been heavily investing in our fiber infrastructure which now spans to over 400 kilometers nationwide, and we continue to expand this as we believe that fiber is the future of enterprise,” Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT president & chief executive and senior vice president & head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.
“This fiber upgrade program is a reinforcement of our unbreakable commitment in serving our customers better, in line with our mission to make a positive impact on every single business,” he added.
PLDT’s fiber optic network has the most extensive digital data infrastructure in the Philippines, spanning a total of 429,000 kilometers.
The demand for fast and reliable internet connectivity is escalating, especially with the continued government-mandated lockdowns brought about by the global health crisis.
Jojo Gendrano, first vice president and head of PLDT Enterprise Core Business Solutions assured that “migrating to fiber means better service and more productive industries and its workforce. The possibilities to take advantage of digital solutions and cloud-based services are much better, but the best part is we will enable all loyal copper-based customers with the upgrade for free.”
PLDT’s fiber is the most advanced internet service in the country, giving high-speed equal download and upload speeds as it runs through fiber optic technology. It has the most robust, most resilient fiber optic network, servicing the most areas around the nation.
