The towers were founded either on large diameter bored piles, high-capacity steel micropiles, and other foundation types depending on load combinations and soil conditions. Towers were installed in various locations in Bulacan, Tarlac, Zamboanga, Osamis, Ormoc City, and Pampanga for PLDT. The tallest PLDT tower was installed by FS in Pinamalayan Mindoro overcoming enormous odds due to lack of access roads and having access only from the sea.
