Duterte Tackles Slow Internet in PH, Asks Telcos: Ano Bang Problema Nyo?

Rodrigo-Duterte_3515202b

Is the state of the country’s slow internet a national issue?

Davao Mayor and Presidential hopeful Rodrigo Duterte has turned his attention to the sorry state of our country’s slow internet, and intends to fully confront the telcos on the matter.

Wala akong panahong makipagdaldalan. I’d talk to the telecommunications people and ask, ‘Ano bang problema n’yo?‘” Duterte said.

Slow internet issues are fast becoming big issues for politicians. Senator Bam Aquino recently filed a senate bill that gives higher penalties on erring telcos and essentially giving the National Telecommunications Commission bigger teeth.

To be fair, the tough-talking mayor isn’t very tech savvy, saying that he’s not aware of the internet, and his phone is an ancient push-button one. It’s not clear if this statement was in jest.

Would a candidate’s stand on how to address the sorry state of our slow internet matter to you in the coming elections?

  1. isa sa mga problema: 1- INFRASTRUCTURE, pag lalatag ka ng backbone cable kukuha ka ng permit sa pag tayo ng poste, hihingi ng suhol or tatagain ka sa presyo bago bigyan ng permit ng mga city hall (lahat naman ng klaseng business e ginagawan nila ng monkey business) , makikiride ka sa poste ng meralco or iba, sisingilin ka ng rent… bibili ka ng cable kelangan mo mag bayad ng TAX sa BOC, kelangan mo din idaan sa NTC kasi communication related babayad ka sa NTC 2- COVERAGE, syempre di naman isang city lang ang gusto ng company, lalatag ka ng undersea cable, maintenance, permit, labor contractors

    and so on..

    magastos talaga ang mag tayo ng infrastructure dito sa pinas simula sa mga kupal na nag tratrabaho sa city hall at sa mga contractors na di naman lahat e maayos mag trabaho at sa sistemang bulok ng government with regards specially sa IT napakadaming pasapasahan bago maka start ng trabaho..

    as a customer: oo medyo mabagal ang progress when it comes to our internet
    as a businessman: napaka daming expense na hindi naman dapat kaya kelangan bawiin ang nagastos

    as per our topology: mahirap at magastos mag maintain ng connectivity lalo na sa ibat ibang lugar sa pinas dahil hindi tulad ng ibang bansa na single piece of land lang, satin ay isla isa so kelangan talaga mag maintain at mag invest into submarine cables na ang kalaban mo ay kalikasan…

    im not siding to telco’s but we should look outside the box that affects this kind of service..

    NA ANG IPINAGLALABAN

    “TUWID NA DAAN” AY:

    “ANG PANTAY NA LABAN
    PARA SA LAHAT”

    PERO BAKIT GANUN ???
    DITO SA APEC
    PILIT IPINAGHIHIWALAY :
    – ANG LUGAR AT DAAN NG MGA MAYAYAMAN
    – AT KUNG SAAN LANG PUWEDE ANG MGA MAHIHIRAP
    – YUN PANG MGA SOBRANG MAHIRAP INILALAYO AT ITINATAGO !!!

    GANITO BA TALAGA ANG
    GUSTO SABIHIN NI MAR ROXAS
    NA “PANTAY NA LABAN PARA SA
    LAHAT LANG NG MAYAYAMAN” ???

    TOTOO BA YUN ???
    O
    SINUNGALING LANG TALAGA SIYA…

    ANO BA TALAGA ???

    ANG SINASABI AT GINAGAWA AY SADYANG TALIWAS AT MAGKAIBA!!!

    ISANG NAPAKALAKING KAGAGUHAN NG MGA POLITIKONG PILIPINO !!!

  9. Duterte na naman pinopromote sa article? Yung plataporma niyang kakausapin ang mga telco para magpaliwanag, di ba ginagawa na sa senate hearing yan?

  10. Then again, the drawing board leads us down into the single most “Gasgas” reason of our plight; Corruption and Red Tape in our government system.

  11. THE QUESTION :
    IS THE STATE OF THE COUNTRY’S SLOW INTERNET A NATIONAL ISSUE?

    THE ANSWER :
    DEFINITELY IT IS… NOW UNDENIABLY,
    A SUPER BIG YES !!!

    GIVEN THE NATIONWIDE DISCONTENT & THE WIDESPREAD SCAMMING OF THE INNOCENT GENERAL PUBLIC, THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOW ACT WITHOUT ANY RESERVATION NOR FAVOR ON PROSECUTING & PENALIZING ALL THESE ERRING TELCOS !!!

    MOREOVER, NOT JUST A NATIONAL ISSUE BUT FRUSTRATINGLY ALREADY A SOURCE OF INTERNATIONAL SHAME & DISGRACE FOR THE FILIPINOS.

    NO LESS, WHAT WE NEED NOW IS A TRUE LEADER WHO WILL SET THE RIGHT & THE ULTIMATE DIRECTION. AND WHO WILL CHAMPION THE DESIRES OF THE GREATER MASSES ABOVE & BEYOND THE MERE WHIMS OF THE BUSINESS CAPITALISTS.

    GO DUTERTE… GO GO GO !!!

    TAKE THE LEAD TO OUR INTERNET REDEMPTION, SALVATION & WE WILL FOLLOW YOU ALL THE WAY… ?. ?
