PLDT rolls out home fiber service in Romblon

Telco giant PLDT Inc. is bringing its home fiber service to Romblon to provide faster broadband internet to residents and tourists.

“Our continued fiber rollout in islands like Romblon is part of our overall thrust to ensure improved customer experience for Filipinos, no matter where they may be in the country,” said PLDT Network head Eric Santiago.

“With our fiber already in Romblon, we are enhancing the experience of residents and tourists alike, enabling remote work set-ups at the beach, connecting businesses, resorts and hotels, and empowering local enterprises and livelihoods with speeds that are at par with those experienced in urban areas,” he added.

PLDT first fired up its fiber optic links connecting the three main islands of Romblon province–Romblon, Sibuyan and Tablas–last year.

Its wireless subsidiary Smart Communications had also earlier rolled out LTE across 100 percent of its sites in Romblon and activated its 5G base stations in the municipalities of Odiongan, Ferrol, Alcantara, Calatrava, Looc, San Andres and Santa Maria.
