SKY bolsters its efforts to curb illegal cable cutting incidents affecting cable TV and internet services of its subscribers by officially partnering with major telco providers, the Philippine Cable and Telecommunications Association (PCTA) and local government units in the strengthened “Oplan Kontra Putol” campaign.
In a joint manifesto signed by executives from SKY and other telco companies including Globe Telecom, PLDT, Smart Communications and PCTA, the group heeded the call for unity in protecting Filipino households from these illegal acts.
Seen as a “first big step in the telco and cable TV industry,” SKY chief operating officer Claudia Suarez said she is encouraged by the joint effort as all companies involved can fully utilize their resources. This will ensure reliable service to subscribers and a quicker response to such heinous acts in coordination with local authorities together with deployed special security teams.
“Together with our telco partners, SKY is committed to put an end to these disruptive acts. We call for continuously uniting our initiatives in fulfilling a common goal of ensuring quality service for the Filipino household. Rest assured that we will work 24/7 to respond and immediately address these concerns with utmost priority,” Suarez said.
As of Aug. 5, SKY has reported 205 incidents of cable cutting and theft around Mega Manila. SKY also responded to cable cutting incidents in regional areas.
SKY vice president and head of strategic relations Efren Arayata noted: “Reporting such incidents to our end and the local authorities is a big help in our ‘Oplan Kontra Putol’ campaign. Not only can we respond to restore your services immediately, but your help goes a long way in preventing these certain acts in other households.”
