Intel executives with representatives from leading PC brands

Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) and Intel Philippines recently announced that the two companies are teaming up to promote high-speed performance and connectivity with the launch of the new Intel Ultrabook and WiFi Zone powered by PLDT. The partnership will combine Intel’s leadership in processor technology and computing innovation with PLDT’s expertise in broadband technology to deliver the no-compromise, complete and satisfying computing experience necessary for increasingly mobile lifestyles.

“Internet growth is driven largely by content, now more so by consumers who exchange photos, videos and tweets wherever they may be,” said Intel Philippines country manager Ricky Banaag. “In this day and age, there is a noticeable increase in the demand for internet access anytime, anywhere. People are now able to access the internet simultaneously across multiple devices, empowering them not just to download data, but to upload and share content as well. Intel’s partnership with PLDT addresses a new era of computing experience that is underway, and ensures that the consumer’s expectations for a secure, mobile and powerful device are met through the Ultrabook.”
