Subic phone company to upgrade Internet service

IN ORDER to improve its broadband services, Subic Telecommunications Company Inc. (Subictel), a subsidiary of Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Company, will double the speed of its broadband Internet service within the economic zone at no cost.

"Aside from offering innovative services such as broadband Internet through DSL technology, we want our clients to enjoy the best of what our technology can offer through continuous service improvements," said Subictel general manager Henry Abes.

Abes said last month alone they have connected another 45 Mbps bandwidth pipe with PLDT, thus doubling their bandwidth capacity. "We intend again to significantly increase our Internet backhaul in the next three to six months to meet the growing demands of our customers," he added.

He said Subictel has tapped Fujitsu Philippines, a leading provider of customer-focused information technology and communications solutions, to maintain Subictel's facilities and provide data services such as digital subscriber lines (DSL).

Since 1994, Subictel has invested P1 billion to develop the telecommunications infrastructure at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

Subictel was formed in 1994 after PLDT, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and AT&T of the US decided to engage in a joint venture to provide state-of-the-art telecommunications facilities at the freeport.

Abes said Subictel's Internet services remained online even during the recent Taiwan earthquake, which caused a downtime in telephone companies and Internet services in the region.

"This is just the start. Existing and prospective clients can expect other innovative service offerings from Subictel in the coming months. With this network upgrade, we can affirm our claim that we have the best Internet wire-line value for money services in the region," said Abes.

Subictel continues to invest in the development of the telecommunications infrastructure at the freeport to meet the needs of locators and potential investors there.

Aside from Internet services, Subictel also provides residential lines, private leased lines, and Virtual Private Network (VPN). (MSN/Sunnex)
