MANILA, Philippines — The home broadband unit of telecommunications giant PLDT Inc. saw its fiber-only revenues grow by 9 percent last year as the subsidiary rode on its “dominant” market share.

Revenues of PLDT Home’s fiber internet business stood at P53 billion, accounting for 50.6 percent of total industry revenue, the company said in a statement on Thursday.


Market share was at 50 percent, up from around 40 percent as more customers sought faster internet speeds.


According to PLDT Home, its fiber customer base grew to 3.2 million from 2.9 million in 2022.
