Telecommunications leader PLDT joins in the 42nd anniversary of the Cityhood of Olongapo with the much-anticipated introduction of its premium products and services to Olongapo’s eager constituents.

PLDT, with the support of Subictel, PilTel, the Cityhood of Olongapo and the local government, led by Olongapo City Mayor James Bong Gordon, started the day by taking to the streets in a motorcade. A queue of festive vehicles made the rounds across town led by PLDT’s Dan Ibarra, vice president and head, PLDT Retail Business Group; Emmy Ocumen, VP and head, Luzon Business District; Raul Alvarez, assistant VP and head, Retail Marketing Saervices; and John Marasigan, senior manager, Pampanga, Bataan and Zambales Business Zone with Henry Abes, general manager of SubicTel.

The reception to PLDT was undeniably warm and candid. Olongapo residents, with their families in tow, filled the massive Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center to take part in the activities and sign up for the PLDT products they had long been waiting for. “The people’s response to PLDT is very impressive,” said Ibarra. “We had around 100 applications early in the day and it just shows how excited everyone is. We’re expecting the numbers to go up in the days to come. We’re very positive about PLDT’s leading role in Olongapo.”

Olongapo constituents got to surf the Internet with high-velocity PLDT myDSL and call their loved ones for free at the calling booths. They also got to avail of PLDT’s most in-demand services like the PLDT Plan 990 Landline and DSL Bundle, Landline Plus Post-paid and Budget Card. Everyone had their fill of laughs and excitement at the bingo tournament and Bring Me contest while the city’s best singers put their vocal chops to the test at PLDT’s Sing N Win Videoke Challenge. Seeing how his constituents eagerly anticipated these products and services, Olongapo City Mayor James Bong Gordon expressed his enthusiasm for PLDT’s timely arrival.

“Let me take this opportunity to thank PLDT for sponsoring the celebration,” Gordon said. “They came here at the right time: Olongapo City’s 42nd anniversary. I’m sure they can really help facilitate the communication needs and economy of Olongapo.”

Through Next Generation Network or NxGN, PLDT has significantly enhanced the existing PilTel infrastructure for landline and Subictel facilities for broadband to be able to offer Olongapo fast, powerful and more affordable telecommunication services. For areas without NxGN, there is the PLDT Landline Plus wire-less service. It is the first SIM-only landline in the world that lets users make and receive calls, and text at affordable rates through a portable phone unit. Subscribers can take full advantage of PLDT Landline Plus’s features through Residential Plan P600 and Business Plan P1,000.

Residents can now chat, download mp3s and videos, and surf the Net up to a hundred times faster than dialup with PLDT myDSL. And for as low as P990, they can bundle it with a PLDT Landline so they can take advantage of low-cost NDD and IDD call rates to anywhere in the country and around the world. They can also choose from three cool plans: Xperience up to 1mbps for only P999, Xcite up to 2 mbps for only P1995 and Xcel up to 3 mbps for only P3000.

PLDT also offers Olongapo residents more ways to stay in touch with loved ones through Budget Card for affordable international calls and TouchCard for affordable international calls and TouchCard with NDD rates at P3 per minute and IDD rates for as low as P8 per minute.
