PLDT, Globe drop interconnection fees in Davao Oriental

/ 12:08 AM January 23, 2017

PLDT Inc. has established interconnection links with Globe Telecom in Davao Oriental, allowing free local calls between their subscribers, a statement showed.

Davao Oriental is the easternmost province in Mindanao’s bustling Davao region.

“The interconnection agreement covers PLDT and Globelines subscribers in the towns of Baganga, Boston, Caraga, Cateel, Gov. Generoso, Lupon, San Isidro, Tarragona, and Mati City,” PLDT vice president and head of international network and carrier business Genaro Sanchez.


“PLDT subscribers in Davao Oriental can now call their friends, family members, loved ones and business associates —regardless of their telco connection—toll-free anytime,” Sanchez said.


The PLDT-Philcom office in Davao Oriental will cover and cater to the subscribers’ telecommunication requirements in the local integrated areas.

“PLDT Philcom, like most PLDT offices all over the country, is implementing an expansion program using fiber to the home (FTTH) and the latest wireless technology. Areas in Davao Oriental will be covered by these expansion programs in the months to come and all these will be integrated to PLDT’s IP backbone network,” PLDT-Philcom general manager Augustus Caesar Cotelo said in the same statement.

“The IP backbone runs on PLDT’s Domestic Fiber Optic Network (DFON), the most extensive fiber optics network in the country which is now over 140,000 kilometers long. It facilitates the direct transmission of the internet data to our gateway, providing fast and reliable internet experience to our subscribers,” Cotelo added.

Aside from Davao Oriental, PLDT-Philcom also serves the provinces of Compostela Valley, Agusan, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Agusan del Norte, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon and parts of Davao del Norte.

Last year, PLDT interconnected with Globelines in the provinces of Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Biliran, Leyte, Southern Leyte, Aklan and Bukidnon.
