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.
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 PLDT Group has been heavily investing in our fiber infrastructure which now spans to over 400,000 kilometers nationwide, and we continue to expand this as we believe that fiber is the future of enterprise,” said Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT president and CEO.
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.
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.
