PLDT is the dominant telco in the Philippines and behind the wireless brand Smart. They provide home and enterprise fibre and an international connectivity business serving SMEs, enterprises and the public sector. This background has powered ePLDT to a 65% market share in domestic data centres.
“One of the main advantages of ePLDT is our relationship with the PLDT parent,” says Victor S Genuino, ePLDT President and CEO. “Being the dominant telco in the Philippines allows us to build substantial infrastructure that will future-proof our operations for years to come.
“We have the largest international submarine cable systems linking the Philippines through the rest of the world to the US, to Japan and through Southeast Asia. And our domestic fibre rollout has reached close to 900,000 square kilometres. We are easily three to four times bigger than the next best player in the market in terms of fibre footprint and connectivity.”
