With this launch, PLDT say that they aim to lend unwavering support to the rapidly evolving businesses in the country, strengthening the foundation for data center management.

Speaking about the expansion, Eric Alberto, Chief Revenue Officer at PLDT, commented:
We’ve seen the traction of data center services being utilized in the operations and business continuity plans of the region’s local enterprises.
The telecom company further added that they have equipped themselves with a robust fiber optics distribution network to scale their data centers across the country. Explaining their vision to help the economy, Alberto added:
As part of our commitment to help the government achieve broad-based, nationwide growth, we are working to strengthen and nurture that digital hub in the southern Philippines to further enable businesses and serve the need for a stronger and more robust digital infrastructure.
