Hello to all, I don’t want to take any credit for this post, I’m not a Pinoy book writer after all. Well I was in the process of checking my email and I managed to stumble upon this interesting article that speaks of how Philippines has one of Asia’s worst internet connections. This article was posted on yahoo news (yeah, I’m a yahoo user and I normally get a lot of shit for it…… fuck it), it doesn’t detail much, but just from us living here we all have a general idea of how shitty our network is here in the good ol Philippines. Here is the full story:
Filipinos spend an average of 6.3 hours a day on the internet, the most in the world. Online access has opened up limitless opportunities. Social messaging is becoming the means of contact over SMS texting. Video call applications make it easier for cross-country entities to do business with one another. Online banking and payment platforms have made money transactions more efficient and seamless. With this, the internet has become more of a necessity than a luxury.
An expensive luxury that is. Most are aware that the Philippines has one of the most expensive internet rates yet one of the slowest as well. Just last Sunday, the website of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) was hacked as a means to send a message to internet service providers for the quality, or lack thereof, of their products and services. Compared to its Asian counterparts, Philippine subscribers pay a premium for lagging internet. Mobile data plans are no better. A number of providers do offer “unlimited” browsing … with a catch.”
