Sun Cellular expands broadband coverage
MANILA, Philippines - Digitel Mobile Philippines Inc. said it has more than doubled Sun Cellular's mobile broadband coverage.
Charles Lim, Sun Cellular executive vice president and head of wireless consumer business group, said Sun Broadband provides fast and reliable Internet connection to more Pinoys.
"With our expanded broadband coverage across the country, more Filipinos can count on Sun Broadband to deliver reliable services wherever they are in the Philippines," Lim said.
Sun Broadband's coverage was expanded to Ilocos Norte in the North and Tawi-tawi in the South. Now, Sun Broadband covers majority of the provinces in the Philippines, as it benefitted from increased infrastructure coordination with sister company Smart Communications Inc.
Most of the expanded coverage areas are in Mindanao. New provinces added to Sun Broadband's service areas include Bukidnon, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sarangani and North Cotabato.
Sun Broadband has expanded to areas such as Guimaras, Samar Islands, Masbate, and Siquijor in the Visayas, as well as Camarines Norte, Catanduanes, Mindoro Islands, Romblon, and Sorsogon in Southern Luzon.
In Luzon, Sun Broadband's expanded coverage now includes Abra, Apayao, Aurora, Ilocos Sur, Isabela, Kalinga, La Union, Mountain Province and Nueva Vizcaya, among others.
