PLDT unit cited in CIO Asia Awards

/ 12:14 AM March 24, 2016

PLDT Home, the home digital services unit of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., bagged an award recognizing its leadership in “digital innovation” in the region.

In a statement, PLDT said it won in the leadership category and was one of five companies in the region included in the Roll of Honor list at the 15th Annual CIO Asia Awards.


PLDT said the data sharing service from PLDT HOME and Smart was a product of collaboration between the Business and IT teams of the country’s digital and mobile leaders.

It is the Philippines’ first data plan that enables subscribers of Home DSL service to share their data allocation with their family’s Smart-powered mobile phones.


It is offered under the Speedster Fam Plan 1299 which gives PLDT Home DSL subscribers speeds of up to 10 Mbps and a monthly data allocation of 50 gigabytes.

By upgrading their Speedster Plan with a Smart Mobile Plan 399 or Plan 600, subscribers can share up to 6 gigabytes of their monthly allocation to their mobile phone lines which they can use even outside the home.

In its citation, CIO Asia Awards said PLDT Home and Smart’s data sharing service is “particularly relevant in the Philippines where large, closely linked family units are common.”

Also in the Honor Roll in this year’s awards were Singapore’s National Library Board for the Innovation category, Philippines’ Manila Water for Transformation, US’ Avnet Inc. for Growth, and Malaysia’s Fraser & Neave Holdings Berhad for Performance.

The CIO Asia Awards is an annual listing of “top Asian companies that have deployed information and communications technology to derive the highest strategic value and to yield the greatest returns for their key operations and businesses.”

It was organized by CIO Asia, a leading resource for IT and digital developments in the region.
