PLDT Inc. (PLDT) has launched fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services in the Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS), owing to the growing population and thriving tourism industry.

“The arrival of PLDT fiber in IGACOS will be beneficial to both residents and tourists. This is also very timely. We really need the internet connection at our new city hall and for the local college we are running,” said IGACOS City Administrator Nieljun Esdrelon.

“We are thrilled with the launching of PLDT Home Fiber in the Island Garden City of Samal. This marks a momentous occasion as we bring fast and reliable internet connectivity to the island — enabling entertainment needs of residents and tourists alike and powering hybrid workplaces,” Vismin Head for PLDT Home Sales George Carmelo Clemente stated.

As one of the founding members of the government-mandated Presidential Private Sector Advisory Council (PSAC) under the Digital Infrastructure Pillar, PLDT and Smart's ongoing efforts to broaden and improve their integrated fixed and mobile networks are in line with their commitment to the government's overall digitalization thrust to eliminate the digital divide.

In addition to supporting the connectivity requirements of businesses and enterprises of all sizes on the island, PLDT's rollout of fiber in the area is anticipated to improve Smart's mobile network services in the region.
