For decades now, PLDT has held the distinction of providing the widest range of communication tools to the Filipino. This telecommunications revolution started in November 28, 1928 when the institution was granted the authority to operate telephone services in the country. Before then, phone networks only operated on the local area level; therefore, it was only possible for a person to call somebody who lived within the same city. PLDT's entry into the scene meant the consolidation of all these networks, thereby uniting the entire archipelago in a circuit. The innovations just kept coming. From making long-distance communications within the country possible, PLDT eventually placed the Philippines in the map by offering overseas communication services. This advancement has proven very useful and sentimental especially to a country whose main export is its talent. And when we entered the cyber age, PLDT was once again the forerunner in providing Filipinos services related to the internet at par with international standards. Now boasting of a more dynamic line-up of products and services, PLDT is still the country's leading communications provider.
