PLDT reinforces PH as next hyperscale hub in Southeast Asia at Telecoms World Asia

The PLDT Group bolsters its mission to help make the Philippines Southeast Asia’s next hyperscale hub.
At the recent Telecoms World Asia conference held in Bangkok, Thailand, PLDT Enterprise’s Asia-Pacific
Regional Head, Jeff Mendoza, emphasized the critical role played by PLDT in creating the digital
infrastructure required by the country’s transformation into a regional hyperscale powerhouse.

PLDT reinforcing its commitment to drive PH’s Digital Capabilities

At the conference, the premiere event on digital solutions and services for Asian Telcos, Mendoza
discussed the emergence of holistic digital ecosystems in support of the Philippines’ fast-paced
digitalization–particularly, the steps that the PLDT Group has taken in the last two years, cementing its
lead in the industry and reinforcing its commitment to drive the country’s digital capabilities forward.

“Over the past few years, we have witnessed unprecedented digital adoption in the region,
especially in the Philippines,”
says Mendoza. “Google’s latest e-Conomy SEA report shows the
Philippines as the frontrunner in Southeast Asia with its digital economy expected to be sustained at a
CAGR of 20% through 2025.”

VITRO Sta. Rosa, the largest and most advanced hyperscale data center in the Philippines, is among
PLDT’s notable investments in digital infrastructure, and adds to its current network of 10 data centers
that host the country’s richest IP ecosystem. 

The recently launched Jupiter Subsea Cable System, together with upcoming international cable
systems ADC and Apricot, further deepen PLDT’s digital infrastructure investments.

Together, these form their response to the rapidly growing requirements of the country’s thriving digital
economy—driven by a young digital-savvy population and the strong propensity to use cloud across
business sectors.

These government entities continue to support the digital thrust by enabling policies that promote cloud
computing as the preferred technology for administration and delivery of government services, and laws
that grant fiscal and non-fiscal incentives for high-value strategic investments such as digital

PLDT’s efforts to help drive the Philippines as the next hyperscale hub is guided by an even
bigger mission to help build a sustainable future for Filipinos. It remains dedicated to its efforts and
initiatives that strongly support UNSDG No. 9: ‘Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable
industrialization, and foster innovation’.
