PLDT, Inc.’s Smart Communications announced it had signed agreements with six common tower companies for a 4G/5G network expansion program.

The agreements aim to construct a pilot batch of almost 200 “macro cell sites” with the help of companies, namely Phil Tower Consortium, ISOC Edotco Towers, Inc., Frontier Tower Associates Philippine, Inc., ALT Global Solutions, Inc., Communication and Renewable Energy Infrastructure Philippines, Inc., and Ison Tower Ltd., Inc.

Smart said that the government’s simplified permitting process for common towers helps in speeding up the company’s mobile network expansion in the country. Smart’s parent company, the PLDT Group, invested P260 billion from 2015 to 2019 to expand its mobile network.
