Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the city government has achieved a great progress in ridding Baguio of the once ubiquitous ‘dangling wires’.

Ang laki na ng improvement natin diyan sa pag-alis ng dangling wires. Hundreds of kilometers na ang natanggal as compared to 2019,” he said.

However, the mayor said as long as the fiberdization or the laying of fiber cables is not yet finished, not all the remaining dangling wires can be removed as of this time.

He lauded the quick action of the telecommunication firms and the Benguet Electric Cooperative in responding to complaints of residents regarding the dangling wires which are not only eyesores but could also pose danger to life and limb.

“In a matter of one or two hours, these companies immediately respond to complaints and fix the problem. I would like to commend and recognize their efforts. Ang laki ng pagkakaiba ng serbisyo nila,” he said. – Gaby B. Keith
