PLDT Inc. said Monday it completed the landing of the shore-end segment of the Asia Direct Cable System at its western cable landing station in Nasugbu, Batangas.
“We are grateful to the local government of Batangas for working with us to land another subsea cable system that will not only cement Batangas’ position as a crucial landing point of global data in the Philippines but more so propel the country’s digitalization,” said JoJo Gendrano, PLDT senior vice president and head of enterprise and international business group.
“We remain resolute to our commitment to building the country’s hyperscale ecosystem that will further the country’s position as the next digital destination in Asia Pacific,” he said.
Once completed, ADC will boost PLDT Group’s unmatched international capacity by up to 36 terabits per second, bringing it to nearly 100 Tbps by end-2023.
Commencing in the Philippines, the second stage of the marine installation will continue to link six other international cable landing points in Asia including Tuas, Singapore; Chung Hom Kok, Hong Kong; Quy Nhon, Vietnam; Sri Racha, Thailand; and Shantou, China.
