PLDT has officially acknowledged the submarine cable damage rumor that I have already posted last time on this blog. We’re not sure if this is still the same case as the one late last year or if this is a new cable damage. PLDT Ramon Isberto has issued the following statement:
"The fiber break is located between China and Korea and between Taiwan and Japan. Some PLDT cable capacity was affected but we still have sufficient capacity to carry our traffic because we have two other international cable systems - AAG (Asia-America Gateway) and ASE (Asia Submarine cable Express,"
PLDT said that its engineers are working with international partners to bring back normal operations as soon as possible, with a full restored service estimated within the second week of April 2014.
