PLDT nearing 1M new fiber customers

PLDT is on track to reach its goal of acquiring one million new fiber customers as it hit half of the number within January to June of this year.

According to the telco, the company had 478,000 new Fiber-to-the-home (FFTH) customers in the first six months of the year, attributing the numbers to its continuous aggressive fiber installation effrots.

PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan said that their firm will push its network upgrades as it moves to cover 66 percent of the country with fiber network.

“We must stay keenly focused on serving our customers, especially during this crisis — keeping families connected, entertained, and educated; enabling businesses to operate at home or in the office; ensuring healthcare delivery to those who need it — and simpny being a source of strength amidst extraordinary adversity and affliction,” MVP said.

Meanwhile, PLDT Inc. and Smart Communications President and CEO Alfredo S. Panlilio said that the change in customer behavior drives the need to ramp up their fiber installations.

“A lot of our mobile customers who are now staying at home are utilizing their fiber-line connectivity. I think this will be the case for most Filipinos as this crisis continues for the rest of the year and until vaccination has been fully implemented,” Panlilio said.
