The company owned by the Philippines’ richest man, Manuel Villar Jr., will soon provide high-speed fixed internet access across the country. The former senator’s company has already applied for a certificate of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) at the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) for permission to roll out the broadband service nationwide. The ex-senator’s son, Manuel Paolo Villar, said they will prioritize half a million homes constructed by Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc., the flagship real estate company founded by their father.
