Globe, PLDT to support improvement of PH Internet after Duterte’s warning




After incoming president Rodrigo Duterte warned our telecommunication companies that he will allow foreign entities to enter the Philippine market if our Internet services don’t improve, Globe Telecom and Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) released separate statements supporting the call for a faster connection.

According to Globe’s Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications, they are spearheading the building of a better infrastructure to make sure that our country doesn’t get left behind in terms of utilizing the available technology.

“We support the call for faster internet. In fact, Globe is at the forefront of building the much needed infrastructure nationwide to make Internet services easily accessible either through mobile or wireline. This is supported by heavy investments over the years to make sure the Philippines is at par with other countries in terms of technology use.”

On the other hand, PLDT spokesman Ramon Isberto mentions that they are in the process of working on a program that aims to improve Internet services in the Philippines.

“We are aligned with government efforts to improve telecom services. PLDT is in fact in the middle of a major 3-year network  investment program that is in process of  significantly improving telecom and Internet services for PLDT and Smart customers and will  support national development initiatives.”

Additionally, Globe’s Crisanto states that achieving a faster connection doesn’t all depend on them and that the government “also plays a role in improving Internet services” in terms of IP peering promotion and making infrastructure building faster and cheaper as reported by GMA News Online.

They are, however, open to letting new players enter the market.

      Hi Sir. I already visited the website of Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. When I browse the tab for Services under Small and Medium Business, all I can see are the Packages, Burstable Speed, CIR and Inclusions. I am wondering where is the cost for these bundles? Subscribers need to be informed of the actual cost or the subscription rate for these offerings. How would we know that your packages are cheaper than other telcos offerings? Thank you very much.

    Kahit anung speed pa yan kung mahal at may data cap useless din

    Ano ba ang mabagal? the DSL and Fiber or the internet by cellphone? Iba yan e!!! Internet by cellphone will always be slower, if you want fast internet , you need a desktop computer and a DSL connection or Fiber, and it will be unlimited, no data caps, download all you want.

    Problem with some people, they want fast cheap internet without data caps, and they want it on their phones. No gonna happen. Wireless has limitations. Even in the US and Europe, they have data caps, so walang kwenta ang fast internet nila sa smartphone.

      Hello? 2016 na fox, 4g lte at malapit na din ang 5g at li-fi development sa south korea. Kahit ang samsung s6, s7 at iphone 6s ay capable nang maghandle ng mabilis na internet speed. Try mo manood sa youtube kay adrianisen, baka magulat ka sa speedtest ng internet connection niya using smartphones. Matagal ng patay ang you can torrent only in pc technology. Sa first world countries, for working and studying purpose na lang ang pc 90% ng websurfing ay ginagawa na sa mobile phones. Uulitin ko fox 2016 baka nakaset pa sa 2000 ang kalendaryo mo.

    • Fox Hunter says:

      But all those countries have data caps, ewan ko lang sa korea, but in the US, Europe, they all have datacaps, if you don’t want datacaps, your only option is desktop. The era of unlimited data for smartphones is over in those developed countries, they will never offer unli ever again.

    Dapat taasan ang penalty sa mga telcos at ipatupad. No more excuses. If we are to get improvements that we are expecting.
