PLDT explained that a contractor setting up the CCTV network of MMDA has accidentally cut its fiber transmission cables in EDSA, Mandaluyong. As a result, its subscribers including government agencies and other clients would experience slowdowns in their data services.

According to its statement, their data services to government agencies, several major financial and retail companies, and PLDT Home customers in parts of Metro Manila would be interrupted because of this incident.

“PLDT’s data services to government agencies like the 911 emergency service and several major financial and retail companies were disrupted, which in turn interrupted the services of these companies to their own customers. Meantime, some PLDT Home customers in parts of Metro Manila also experienced slowdowns in their data service.”

On the other hand, PLDT said that the company needed to get the permission of MMDA because its repair work would affect traffic along EDSA.

“Meantime, data services of the affected enterprises are being restored through traffic rerouting and cable restoration. We shall provide further update as needed.”

PLDT also apologized for the inconvenience it may have caused the public.
