Smart deploying 2,000 more cell sites in 2021

Smart Communications Inc. announced it is deploying an additional 2,000 cell sites next year to further improve coverage and connectivity.

“Our accelerated network expansion efforts will help us reach even the unserved and underserved areas in the country,” said Alfredo Panlilio, PLDT chief revenue officer and Smart Communications president and chief executive.

Since the Anti-Red Tape Authority issued its Joint Memorandum Circular in August, Smart has secured close to 1,500 permits to build more cell sites and accelerate the company’s goal to improve customer experience across the country.

The permits cover towers to be built in Metro Manila and in typhoon-hit provinces, like Albay, Aurora, Batangas, Bulacan, Cagayan, Camarines Sur, Cavite, Isabela, Laguna, Masbate, Quezon, Rizal, and Sorsogon, which were in the path of recent strong typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.
