During the PLDT 2023 Nine Months Earnings press conference, Danny Yu, PLDT chief financial officer explained, “As a result of higher gross installation plus migrations and lower churn, Fiber net ads re-accelerated in the third quarter with 88,000 compared to the 42,000 in the second quarter.”
“Unique to PLDT is the ability to complement Fiber offer with others at different price points using varied fixed and wireless technologies to address market affordability considerations,” Yu said.
