GMA News Online reported that the incoming President will create new policies to make internet speeds faster for everyone. He may also resort to other options such as opening the competition to foreign players if the current telco players fails to shape up.

Duterte has said in earlier interviews that he will directly confront telco executives on ways to fix the current internet situation. “Wala akong panahong makipagdaldalan. I’d talk to the telecommunications people and ask, ‘Ano bang problema n’yo?‘” (I do not have time for chitchat. I’d talk to the telecommunications people and ask, ‘What is your problem?’) Duterte said in a townhall meeting hosted by CNN Philippines.

If we may recall, the PH still has one of the lowest internet speeds in Asia, currently averaging at 3.2Mbps according to Akamai’s State of the Internet Q4 2015 report.

      Kung magagawa niya ang lahat ng pinangako, gusto kong palitan niya yung picture nina ninoy sa 500 pesos.

    • Easy E says:

      Picture sa pera? Napaka minor!

    • Archie says:

      He don’t take credits on everything he do. He do them out of his love for the country kaya the best thank you we can do is to put his face on the money like a real hero. Matagal pa naman yun dahil di pa siya nakaupo at nagtatrabaho.

    • Hilario says:

      @Archie, sa dinami dami ng problema ng Pilipinas yung pera pa napagdiskitahan mo? Parang may problema ka sa pera.( LOL!)

    Questioning the high tax system, curfew and liquor ban on midnights, possibly no fircrackers on new year like davao tapos ngayon ay ang mga telcos. 2 past presidents sunud-sunod nakulong at may potensyal pa si noynoy dahil sa pdaf, bakit ngayon ka lang tumakbo duterte?

    • Fox Hunter says:

      Nothing good about firecracker ban, it is a sign of dictatorial tendencies. High tax? Duterte is the one asking for higher taxes on new cars! Lower taxes must be across the board not just for his favorite class or sector. Sorry but i don’t trust the guy, i don’t care how many people voted for him, it is like Erap all over again but worse with npa communists in the cabinet.

    • Archie says:

      Bobo mo naman anong relation ng dictatorial tendencies sa firecracker ban? Kahit naman sa Finland, Europe, Japan at New Zealand ay mahal ang carbon emission at vehicle tax. Paraan yun ng government para mabawasan ang massive illegal parking at congestion ng maliliit na kalye. Yung sa npa issue, abugado si digong. Politika ang pinasukan niya may kasamang fake moves kaya hindi niya pwedeng ilantad lahat ng ginagawa niya. Pag gusto mo bang hulihin si joma sison sasabihan mo siya na umuwi para magpaposas? Wag ka kasi masyado naniniwala kay noynoy at mar roxas nagiging tuwad na daan ka tuloy tulad niya.

      +1 to ARCHIE

  6. JessPH says:

    All talk and no concrete plans on how he will do it.

    • Archie says:

      Kaya nga plano e. Guide niya yun pag nakaupo na siya parang lesson plan ng teacher. Kesa naman kay noynoy boy sisi na walang hinandang goal at vision, tumunganga lang sa harap ng maraming tao at ang greatest achievement e tanggalin ang wangwang na nabalik din.

    • jesslopezph says:

      So Noynoy has nothing to do with DAP and the Mamasapano Incident? After all, “tumunganga” lang siya for the whole six years, right?

  7. Deng says:

    Salamat po President Duterte

  8. Renel says:

    Ang tanong ay kung paano? Hindi naman basta basta nakakapasok ang foreign companies dahil kailangan pa ng permit sa congress at limited lamang sa 40 percent ang ownership

    • Renel says:

      Matutupad lang iyan kung magkakaroon tayo ng economic charter change. Sobrang pangit ang pagkakagawa ng batas na limited ang ownership ng foreign companies

    dapat lang! sabihan niya rin yung schoolmate niya na tama na ang advertisement, palawakin, pabilisin at pamurahin ang internet access sa buong pinas (lalo na ang wireless internet.

  11. tee gee dong says:

    Saka na lang tayo maniwala o papurihan sya kapag nagawa na nga nya. Madali kasing sabihin pero kaya nga ba talagang gawin?

    Let the work do the talking.

    Baka naman pahanga lang yan dahil nakatutok pa ang mata ng publiko sa kanya. Pero pag nakailang months na sa malacañang at nag-i-enjoy na, baka forget na yung mga pinagsasabi before.

    Alam naman nating may tendency na magpaiba-iba ng sinasabi yan si duterte.

    A Filipino in the UK could buy and own 100%, every company in the UK if he had the money. He could buy every property in the UK if he could afford it. He could then criticise the Prime Minster, or any other government official, or the system, without fear of deportation. The Philippines is so racist.

  16. Anonymous says:

    How can we expect improvements in Telco and Energy sectors, eh ang pag-penalize nga sa kanila, either non-existent or masyadong mababaw.

    Easiest thing to do is to penalize them big time (and not pass on back to the consumers) if they failed to meet your set targets. And when I mean big time is to make them hurt (really bad). Let’s see if they can’t do anything to improve.

    Open the market globally – the more, the better. Ang makikinabang ditto ay masa.

    Maganda na din to na lahat ng pag-eepal eh gawin na nya kagaya ng ginawa nya sa Dabaw kaya sya nakarating sa kinatatayuan nya ngayon. Kasi sa mga PI na keyboard warriors na mga PI sabi ng sabi na wala naman daw nagawa ang Aquino Administration. WTF!!! Manood ka kasi ng balita! Oh yung mga binintang nyo kay Roxas before mag eleksyon asan na? PI nyo pala eh! Kahit si MDS ang binito ko noon pero sobra na. Masyado nang overrated at sana hindi hanggang salita lang yan. At tsaka dapat talaga naipasa yung anti EPAL bill ni MDS eh. -_-
