PLDT Inc. hit all-time high revenues on its enterprise business, hauling in ₱11.6 billion in the first quarter of 2022, seven percent more versus the same period last year, as the economy re-opened from the pandemic and more companies adopted ICT and data services.
The robust uptake of fixed internet services, as businesses require reliable and high-speed connectivity, fueled growth.
Aggressive go-to-market programs in partnership with government agencies for hyperscalers’ data center and high-bandwidth requirements, as well as engagement with Enterprises and the public sector to accelerate their adoption of digital transformation solutions, also contributed to the growth of PLDT’s corporate business unit.
“PLDT Enterprise is committed to help the country bounce back to economic progress,” says PLDT and Smart FVP and Head of Enterprise Business Group Jojo G. Gendrano.
“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,” he elaborated.
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 solidifies 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 further elevated domain expertise and technical capability by achieving advanced certifications from global technology partners.
These enabled PLDT to strengthen its leadership as the digital transformation partner-of-choice of businesses.
