But before that, let’s try to look at our current status when it comes to internet download speed base on Ookla, a site that collects and ranks user download speeds around the world.

Philippines Ranked 21st in Internet Download Speed in ASIA

Internet Connection in the Philippines is not just slow, but worse is EXPENSIVE. Internet users in the Philippines spend $18 per Mbps while the rest of the internet users around the world is only paying for around $5!

But, with this excellent idea of the NEW PRESIDENT of the REPUBLIC of the PHILIPPINES, PRESIDENT RODRIGO R. DUTERTE, it could change the entire system.

The president said that he will open up the Philippines to other internet providers around the world for them to increase the competition, go for faster internet connection, then beat the price! Excellent right?

It would benefit all of us!
