Transpacific Broadband Group International, Inc. (TBGI) announced a target of 10,000 sites and towers for what it identifies as the third player in the telecommunications industry.
“TBGI plans to install 10,000 sites and towers of the third telco through its network of affiliate organizations,” the company said in its 2020 annual report released Monday.
In a phone interview, TBGI Vice President Paul B. Saria explained that the company has “no direct contract” with DITO Telecommunity Corp., also known as the third telco.
“We are already starting the installations for that,” he added.
According to the company’s annual report, it “supports the third telco’s long-distance signal haul, including arrangements for remote sites and towers.”
According to the study, the coronavirus pandemic has increased the need for contact and connectivity.
“The COVID-19 pandemic showed the urgency of staying connected despite the distance. The bulk of TBGI’s customer base has requested activation during the onset of the pandemic,” the company said.
“With the fast-growing demand for connectivity, TBGI has invested in new satellite infrastructure (Ka-Band) to provide the most reliable and cost-efficient connectivity to its subscribers, thereby increasing shareholder value and economic performance,” it added.
According to TBGI, internet, intranet, and local loop service subscriptions for colleges, the private sector, and government agencies produce most of its revenue.
It is also carving out a niche as a supplier of telecommunications tower infrastructure.
