PLDT, Inc. is showing its support for the government’s call for better minimum internet speed in the Philippines.

Senate Bill 329, also known as the Better Internet Act that was first filed last year, wants to make sure a fast, secure, and affordable internet for the Filipino people, especially in underserved and unserved areas in the country.

To show its support for the government’s call, PLDT-Smart president and CEO Al Panlilio said that they remain committed to expanding their network coverage, which is an important part to achieve their goal of “elevating the quality of customer experience across the country.”


“Our mission is to keep our countrymen connected by ensuring that our network is reliable and accessible to more Filipinos, wherever they may be in the country,” the CEO added.

Panlilio also highlighted how their fixed and wireless internet services come with different price points to cater to different segments in the market.

Just in the first quarter of 2022, PLDT was able to extend its fiber infrastructure to 803,000 kilometers, which is the most extensive in the country. That same infrastructure is used by PLDT’s wireless arm, Smart Communications.

Speaking of which, Smart now has around 76,600 base stations across the country.

These improvements and expansion are part of the sustained investments by the PLDT Group for their network.
