Slow PLDT internet service in some areas due to damaged cables

MANILA, Philippines – Some areas of Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, Laguna, and Mindanao will be experiencing slow or no internet services because of cut cables, according to an ABS-CBN report. 

The report said PLDT's fiber optic transmission cables were cut by the "civil works by a third-party in Alabang."

The cut cables degraded the quality of the data services in the said Luzon areas. PLDT made the press announcement on Thursday, September 21. Also affected are some parts of Mindanao because some of the lines that were cut were linked to the southern region.

PLDT said that they are currently working to immediately restore the the connection, and are apologizing for the inconvenience they may have caused. 

PLDT estimates it will take 3 weeks to repair the damaged cables.

Earlier, international undersea cables in Asia were also damaged because of the typhoons ravaging the area. PLDT, Globe Telecom, and Converge ICT reported the damage, and that these have affected internet speeds in the country. – Rappler.com
