"We at PLDT Enterprise extend support to the Philippine Army in order to strengthen their capabilities in responding to the battle against COVID-19. This service enables health professionals deployed at COVID-19 treatment facilities to be informed of the latest information and stay connected to their families." ~Jovy I. Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups

PLDT Enterprise continues to support the country's battle against COVID-19. This time, PLDT Enterprise has deployed business-grade fiber internet to quarantine areas manned by the Philippine Army. Among them are, Philippine Army Wellness Center, Gate 5 Barracks, SOQ TRADOC Building, and Libingan ng mga Bayani.

The fiber-grade connectivity will allow the army personnel to remain informed of the latest news about the coronavirus and likewise will enable COVID-19 patients in the quarantine areas to keep in touch with their loved ones.

As part of its continuous efforts to support the country's response to COVID-19, PLDT Enterprise deploys free connectivity support to the quarantine areas covered by the Philippine Army.

All quarantine areas manned by uniformed personnel in Fort Bonifacio, Metro Manila for COVID-19 patients now have business-grade fiber internet which leverages PLDT Group's most expansive fiber-optic network in the country. The COVID-19 quarantine areas include Philippine Army Wellness Center, Gate 5 Barracks, SOQ TRADOC Building, and Libingan ng mga Bayani.

The fiber-grade connectivity will allow the army personnel to remain informed of the latest news about the coronavirus and likewise will enable COVID-19 patients in the quarantine areas to keep in touch with their loved ones.

The initiative is just one of PLDT’s endeavors to enable uniformed personnel with connectivity support.

"We would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the services the PLDT Group has extended to the Philippine Army in line with our efforts to address the threats of COVID-19. We salute you for not hesitating to provide the services to the Philippine Army. We hope and pray that we can overcome this crisis at the soonest time possible." ~Mark Edwin B.
