Duterte warns Telcos: Increase internet speed or I'll open foreign telecommunications
Duterte earlier declared he would open the country to foreign telecommunications firms that could provide better service if the existing telcos do not do something to improve Internet connection and access.
“I will make it a public policy – the Internet connectivity,” Duterte told a press briefing in Davao Saturday night.
Philippines ranked 176th out of 202 countries worldwide in terms of internet speed. In Asia Singapore has the fastest internet speed.
