·1 min read

THE Philippines’ leading integrated telecommunication company PLDT Inc. has held a cable landing ceremony at the Municipality of Santa Fe in Bantayan island, attended by leaders from the local government unit, PLDT, Smart Communications Inc. and Fiberhome.

With PLDT fiber on the island, residents and tourists may now look forward to enhanced connectivity.

“On behalf of the Local Government of Santa Fe, we would like to extend our gratitude to PLDT for making this happen. PLDT fiber will encourage more investors on the island. We hope that this will be the solution to the many challenges that we are facing,” said Santa Fe Mayor Ithamar Espinosa.

Also gracing the event were Bantayan Mayor Arthur Despi and Poblacion, Santa Fe Barangay Captain Renato Bajalla.

Also in attendance were representatives from PLDT and its wireless unit Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) led by Robert Pascual, PLDT head of Fixed Transport Engineering; Arnold Gabrinao, VisMin head of PLDT Fiber Engineering; Rhod Ebon, assistant vice president/Center head of PLDT and Smart Network Field Services; and Christian Philip Remigio, head of PLDT FOC Project Management; Edgar Burdador of PLDT Home; Kent de la Calzada, head of PLDT Enterprise in Visayas; and Spark Zang of FiberHome.

These developments have enabled PLDT to roll out fiber across the island, providing fast and reliable fiber-powered services to individual customers, families, and businesses. This will also allow Smart to level up its mobile services, particularly for LTE and 5G.
