Our newest offering, Cignal CONNECT, responds to the clamor for reliable internet capability for all in the light of today’s online classes and work from home requirements for households and businesses. We are doubling up our efforts to open more connectivity options for the Filipino people, especially those in hard to reach areas.”
At present, Smart and PLDT are utilizing Cignal’s satellite broadband technology to provide connectivity for their selected sites in areas that are difficult to reach through land-based networks.
