If you’re subscribed to PLDT and wondering why your internet is spotty-to-non-existent the past days, blame it — again — on cuts in the international cable systems serving the company. Here’s the statement from the telco:
For its part, Globe Telecom — which has suffered the same thing — says the multiple subsea cuts have had no adverse impact on its clients because it has successfully rerouted its data traffic that goes through the affected cable systems to its other subsea cable capacity routes. Here’s the company’s official statement, sent by its Senior Vice President for Corporate Communication Yoly Crisanto:
Globe Telecom takes its internet routing responsibilities seriously, and over the years has invested significant amounts of capital in a variety of subsea cable systems, including the recent SEA-US system, to ensure diversity. Globe has successfully rerouted its data traffic that goes through the affected cable systems to its other subsea cable capacity routes. In so doing the multiple subsea cuts had no adverse impact to our enterprise clients and mobile and broadband customers. Our technical teams are closely monitoring the network to ensure voice, SMS and data services are operating at normal levels.
