Telecommunications company PLDT sustains the steady growth of its enterprise business, on the back of a reopening of the economy from the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing adoption of ICT (information and communications technology) and data services.
According to PLDT, the enterprise business’ first-quarter 2022 revenues reached an all-time high of P11.6 billion, up P0.8 billion or 7% from the same quarter in 2021.
“Growth was underpinned by the robust uptake of fixed internet services, as businesses require reliable and high-speed connectivity,” PLDT said in a media advisory.
The company attributed the growth to its partnership with government agencies for hyperscalers’ data center and continuous engagement with enterprises and the public sector to accelerate their adoption of digital transformation solutions.
“Our growth momentum supports the larger, group-wide goal of PLDT to help businesses implement their digital roadmaps, sustain their work operations, and accelerate recovery from economic disruptions brought about by the pandemic,” said Jojo G. Gendrano, FVP and head of Enterprise Business Group, PLDT and Smart.
Cloud and data center
PLDT also sustained its investments in cloud practices and data center infrastructure as these services continue to be strong revenue growth drivers.
First quarter highlights of PLDT Enterprise include the groundbreaking of VITRO Sta. Rosa in Laguna, the 11th facility in ICT arm ePLDT’s suite of data centers. Geared to be the country’s largest data center campus, the project aims to solidify the Philippines’ standing as the next hyperscaler destination in Asia and prime the industry as the nation’s next growth engine.
Alongside digital infrastructure investments, PLDT Enterprise elevated domain expertise and technical capability by achieving advanced certifications from prominent global technology partners. These enable PLDT to strengthen its leadership as the digital transformation partner-of-choice of businesses.
