Senator seeks inquiry into state of broadband in RP - INQ7.net
I'll tell you the state of broadband in the Philippines.
Firstly, there is only a minority who have access to computers.
Broadband connection is very expansive in the Philippines. The least expensive connection is about PHP 1,500 or USD 26 per month but you see daily wages is only about PHP 250 - 350 or USD 4.50 - 6.25. The hardware such as an ADSL or cable modems are expensive.
Not every single PLDT circuit or local loop are capable of ADSL connections.
