DICT assures fast and affordable internet in 6 months

MANILA, Philippines During the first Philippine Telco Summit, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) assured that in six months’ time a faster internet connection will be provided for the Filipinos.

This is in accordance to last Monday’s approval by President Duterte on the implementation of a national broadband plan during the cabinet meeting in Malacañang.

DICT Secretary Rodolfo Salalima said, “So on the issues and concerns, questions of speed, coverage, affordability or cost we are going to address that and we promise to the consumers in the audience that… in 6 months time we will improve our telecommunications office it may not be a perfect improvement but at least we are moving.”

DICT believes, Filipinos deserve faster internet service especially because the Philippines is considered as one of the countries with the highest internet users in the world.

Also, according to DICT Sec. Rodolfo Salalima, one of the basic problems on the matter of speed is the building of towers in local government.

Sec. Salalima also said that they will ask President Duterte to issue an executive order so that local governments will be pushed to issue the necessary permits to build towers for faster internet connectivity.

Meanwhile, an invitation was also posted on Wednesday on the website of DICT (www.dict. gov.ph) inviting public to leave comments on the national broadband plan.

The First Philippine Telecom Summit was attended by industry stakeholders, government agencies and regulators, industry players, experts and consumers.

The summit aims to address the efficiency of the internet services in the Philippines. — AIKO MIGUEL | UNTV News & Rescue
