    0

    The application of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) to participate in a consortium for the construction and maintain a submarine cable has been approved by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). In a decision, the NTC granted PLDT a certificate of public convenience and necessity for its participation in the ownership, construction and maintenance of the Asia Submarine Express, and for the construction and operation of the Philippine terminal station in Daet, Camarines Norte. Earlier, PLDT said that the submarine cable project is expected to meet the explosive growth in the bandwidth requirements of the country for new and revolutionary broadband applications such as Internet protocol, video, data and other multimedia services. It will also provide resiliency and diversity to the existing submarine cable systems.
