PLDT Inc. said it supports the newly-launched supper app of the Marcos administration as it will further improve the ease of doing business and digitalize all transactions in the local and national government.
“We echo the sentiments of President Marcos about maximizing use of the technologies available to us, with the eGovPH Super App expected to improve ease of doing business and interactions with the government,” PLDT president and chief executive Alfredo Panlilio said.
The eGovPH Super App aims to simplify all government transactions and minimize corruption and other abuses.
Filipinos will be able to access and avail of highly desirable government services such as valid personal identification in digital format, essential day-to-day core government services; e-tourism and e-travel services; e-payments and banking services; and even useful news and information about various subjects.
“This aligns with how we at PLDT are committed to evolving with our customers’ increasingly digital lifestyles and delivering innovation to achieve our ambition of a completely connected and future-ready Philippines,” Panlilio said.
Available on Google Play and Apple Store, the e-GovPH Super App is a one-stop-shop platform for local and national services, with transactions including SIM registration, LGU services, job application, healthcare assistance, e-payments and banking services, and more.
Actualizing PLDT’s commitment to the government’s nationwide digitalization call, Panlilio is one of the founding members under the Digital Infrastructure Group of the Private Sector Advisory Council.
“Our PSAC seat permits us to provide regular policy recommendations to President Marcos, and we are grateful that he has been very engaging in initiatives specific to the nationwide expansion of internet connectivity and digitalization,” Panlilio said.
PLDT’s support for PSAC aspirations is backed by its resilient and undisputed award-winning fixed and wireless networks.
PLDT expanded its total fiber footprint to over 1.1 million kilometers, consisting of over 231,000 kilometers of international fiber and over 874,000 kilometers of domestic fiber as of end-March 2023.
The fiber infrastructure supports Smart’s 2G, 3G, 4G/LTE and 5G network, which cover 97 percent of the population.
