PLDT, Inc. said it now has a digital support solution that allows customers to report service issues without having to call the hotline, queue in physical stores, or await a response on social media.

PLDT’s home business added more than 401,000 net fiber subscribers in the first half of the year, increasing the overall number of fixed broadband subscribers to 3.2 million.

“With just a few clicks, customers can easily inquire about their bills, request for after-sales support, file complaints, or report service issues through this easy-to-understand feature of PLDT Home’s Support website,” the company said.

Customers also receive a confirmation e-mail and regular status updates.

The goal is to provide customers with “faster, easier, and more convenient ways to get help for their concerns,” according to the company.

“This is part of our commitment to elevate the quality of service that we deliver to our customers through technology and innovation,” it added.
