The volleyball fever has reached the City of Love as PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol brought to Iloilo City the Philippine volleyball superstars from the women’s team Amihan and men’s team Bagwis.
Touring a number of cities nationwide, the Install Patrol program of PLDT HOME Ultera, which delivers ultra-fast LTE for the home of up to 10 Mbps, brings LTE broadband access to more homes in the country. This includes the Install Patrol celebrity crew comprising reigning Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Pia Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas-International Janicel Lubina, Miss Universe 2014 Top 10 Finalist MJ Lastimosa and top noontime variety show Eat Bulaga’s Wally, Jose and Paolo Ballesteros, among others.
Fresh off Bacolod on March 20, where they visited University of St. La Salle and Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella, the volleyball superstars arrived in Iloilo that same day and paid a visit to Iloilo Vice Mayor Jose Espinosa III. The full-day volleyball showcase kicked off on March 21 with a motorcade comprising the volleyball superstars and a simultaneous volleyball clinic conducted by the Amihan and Bagwis team coaches at the University of San Agustin Gym.
As the Philippine volleyball superstars arrived at the gym, they were welcomed by thousands of fans including existing and new subscribers of PLDT HOME Ultera, who were given a chance to meet and greet the well-loved players. These included Rachel Anne Daquis, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mika Reyes, Peter Torres, Ran Ran Abdilla, John Vic De Guzman and Iloilo’s very own Jovelyn Gonzaga. The event was also graced by Ateneo Lady Eagles volleyball standout Gretchen Ho.
The best of Iloilo’s volleyball players were also able to test their skills through exciting exhibition games—Bagwis against the Iloilo men’s team in round one, and Amihan versus the Iloilo women’s team in round two.
“We are excited to bring the PLDT HOME Ultera Install Patrol to the wonderful province of Iloilo,” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Head Gary Dujali said. “On top of honing the talents and passion of young aspiring athletes around the nation, this is an opportunity for us to democratize broadband by making it more accessible to homes in far-flung areas, with the help of our Philippine volleyball superstars and the local government units. Reaching out to more cities and residences nationwide, Install Patrol reinforces that the strongest connections are at home.”
