TACLOBAN CITY – One of the leading digital infrastructure providers in the country, LBS Digital Infrastructure, has entered into an agreement with the provincial government of Northern Samar to build cell towers across the province.

This initiative by LBS Digital Infrastructure aims to enhance internet connectivity in the area. It comes at a crucial time as the provincial government has been receiving inquiries from companies engaged in business process outsourcing (BPOs), according to Jan Allen Berbon, head of the provincial economic development and investments promotions office.
“BPOs are talking to us, and having digital infrastructure is one of their requirements,” Berbon said in an interview.

Berbon mentioned that LBS Digital Infrastructure, led by its CEO Ramoncito Yu III, was one of the companies that participated in the provincial government-sponsored investment forum held on June 14.

However, Berbon noted that they could not yet disclose the number of cell towers LBS Digital Infrastructure would be constructing in the province or when the construction would commence. He emphasized that the entry of LBS Digital Infrastructure into Northern Samar would help address the province’s poor connectivity issues.

“It will definitely help us attain stable internet connectivity,” Berbon stated.

As part of the agreement, the provincial government will assist LBS Digital Infrastructure in identifying suitable locations for the cell towers.

“We will assist them in finding locations, and they will coordinate with us on their corporate social responsibility activities,” Berbon added.

He also mentioned that mobile operators could benefit from the planned cell tower construction by LBS Digital Infrastructure.

As a registered common tower provider, LBS Digital Infrastructure focuses on building shared telecom facilities to serve underserved regions.

This initiative aims to improve telecommunications services, create jobs, enhance online government access, and aid in poverty reduction, Berbon explained.
