The Ayala-owned Globe Telecom Inc. embarks on a new round of cable landings by investing $150 million. The project, known as the Philippine Domestic Submarine Cable Network (PDSCN), the country’s longest submarine cable network is scheduled to be completed in April 2023.

The PDSCN would soon connect to Calatrava, Romblon, Pasacao, Camarines Sur; Bulan, Sorsogon; Calbayog City, Samar; Palanas, Masbate; Mactan, Cebu; Maasin City, Southern Leyte. Likewise, it would link Claver, Surigao del Norte; and Kinoguitan, Misamis Oriental. It would also land in Camiguin; Dipolog, Zamboanga del Norte; Liloy, Zamboanga del Sur. The total length will be 2,500 kilometers.

The PDSCN, based in Subic, Zambales since 2022, has since set up sites across the country, including in urban areas and tourist hotspots. Accordingly, Globe is steadfast in its efforts to bring fast and reliable connectivity as it supports the country, innovates, builds, and adopts a digitalization-based economy.


I salute the AYALA Group of companies for their sustained effort to help strengthen the country’s economy through investments in impact-filled projects and businesses. I wish that the other successful business groups will follow suit, taking the cue from the Ayalas, Ramon Ang’s San Miguel Corporation improving the road infrastructures, among others.
