CLARK FREEPORT – The launch­ing on Mon­day of the coun­try’s first 5G net­work is ex­pected to boost in­fra­struc­ture in this Freeport.

The lat­est wire­less telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions plat­form is seen to ben­e­fit not just lo­ca­tors here but also other in­dus­tries in var­i­ous parts of the coun­try through more re­li­able and smart tech­nol­ogy.

Due to its safe and se­cure en­vi­ron­ment for elec­tron­ics, busi­ness and data stor­age and pro­tec­tion, this Freeport serves as a pre­ferred lo­ca­tion by lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies in the coun­try.

Clark Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (CDC) Pres­i­dent and CEO Noel F. Manankil and Bases Con­ver­sion and Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (BCDA) Pres­i­dent and CEO Viven­cio Di­zon lauded the launch­ing of the 5G net­work here.

Manankil said that the launch­ing of the new net­work will serve as a plat­form to help in the achieve­ment of smart and tech­nol­ogy-based com­mu­ni­ties in the coun­try.

“We are glad that Clark was cho­sen to serve as the lo­ca­tion for the very first 5G wire­less plat­form in the Philip­pines. This, we be­lieve, will not only be of ben­e­fit to Clark lo­ca­tors but also the many in­dus­tries, var­i­ous busi­nesses and com­mu­ni­ties in the coun­try as well,” Manankil said.

Di­zon also thanked the PLDT-Smart En­ter­prise for choos­ing this Freeport as their prime lo­ca­tion for launch­ing the 5G net­work.

“They all say that this will re­ally change the way we are con­nected to each other, and we are hon­ored to be the first de­ploy­ment of 5G net­work in the coun­try,” he added.

Mean­while, ex­ec­u­tives of a lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in the coun­try have also cited the suit­abil­ity of Clark as their prime lo­ca­tion.

Eric­s­son Head of Mar­ket Area for South East Asia, Oceana and In­di­ana, Nun­zio Mir­tillo men­tioned their plan of in­stalling the first 5G net­work here, as he also cited the po­ten­tials of this Freeport for be­ing a tech­nol­ogy hub in the coun­try.

“This Novem­ber, we will in­stall one 5G ra­dio here in Clark. It is one of the best places in the world where you will have a live com­mer­cial tech­nol­ogy in the coun­try,” Mir­tillo said.

Dur­ing the launch­ing, PLDT and Smart En­ter­prise Busi­ness Groups Se­nior Vice-Pres­i­dent Jovy Her­nan­dez said that the launch­ing of 5G net­work in this Freeport will set an­other rea­son for in­vestors to choose Clark as their busi­ness lo­ca­tion.

“By pi­lot­ing 5G in Clark, we are mak­ing this zone even more at­trac­tive to for­eign in­vestors. Through this pi­lot, we are putting the pos­si­bil­i­ties of 5G closer to in­dus­tries, busi­nesses and en­ter­prises op­er­at­ing in the city,” Her­nan­dez said.
