This was made possible by the hardworking network engineers who typically work tirelessly to ensure excellent customer experience, such as Naoemi Fuentes, Service Surveillance and Assurance Specialist under the Network Services Operations Group of Smart Communications, Inc.

“Whenever duty calls, especially during big events such as festivals, I don’t hesitate to answer even if I have to work overtime. We need to outdo ourselves and our performance with every year to ensure seamless connectivity for our customers. This way, we help make PLDT and Smart remain number 1,” said Fuentes.
