The corporate business arm of PLDT Inc. teamed up with the provincial government of Cebu to expedite its digital transformation for the benefit of constituents and thriving business communities.
The collaboration will provide advanced digital solutions and reliable connectivity with the initial roll-out of free, unlimited public Wi-Fi in 50 barangays, including prominent areas like Guadalupe, Tisa, Basak San Nicholas and Talamban.
Wi-Fi access points will be strategically deployed in barangay halls, gyms and key areas of each barangay to ensure wide coverage and connection of about 30 to 40 meters from every access point.
PLDT Enterprise supplies fiber broadband internet access with a robust bandwidth of 100 mbps to enable seamless connectivity. Acloud-managed access point is installed to monitor real-time alerts and ensure uninterrupted internet.
“Digital access has become the lifeblood of modern cities. A digital city—facilitated by widespread broadband – is one precursor into becoming a smart city. This certainly benefits all stakeholders,” said Kent De La Calzada, assistant vice president and head of customer relationship management at PLDT Enterprise.
