Gov’t to roll out Anti-fake News Government Satellite Network this year

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said today in an interview on Radyo Pilipinas dzRB that the Government Satellite Network or GSN operation to be launched this year can be used to fight the spread of disinformation, misinformation or fake news.

Andanar said that the Presidential Communications Operations Office or PCOO plans to roll out the Government Satellite Network in 42,000 barangay halls and all PCOO agencies nationwide in the next six months.


Sapagka’t kung mayroon pong fake news na halimbawa may nagsabi na, ‘Uy mayroong red tide sa lugar na ito.’ Dahil nga 42,000 na mga barangays ang mayroon at lahat po ng mga information officers ay united po lahat, ay siguro na mas madali po ng mapawi o matabunan iyong mga fake news dahil lahat ho ay nagkakaisa at mayroon pong government satellite network. – Communications Secretary Martin Andanar

He also added that the GSN can transmit government multimedia and data content using advanced satellite and Internet Protocol television or IPTV technology.
