Communications history of the Philippines



During this period, most of the principal towns and cities of the Philippines were linked by telephone, telegraph, and/or radio. The entire region was connected by the government postal service.

The Philippines Long Distance Telephone Company[?], an American company, connected Manila with the important centers on Luzon, as well as centers on Cebu, Mindanao, Negros, and Panay. There were 40 provincial government telephone systems, and most towns and villages had at least one telephone connected to Manila.

Cable connected Manila with Guam, Hong Kong, and Shanghai and the Philippines also possessed four transoceanic radio stations.
