A Call for Broadband Service Honesty

by the end of 2009, the number of broadband users in the Philippines would have reached 2M, this came in a recent statement by Catanduanes Representative Joseph Santiago who by this, urged companies offering these services to be truthful in marketing their connection speeds.

"They should be able to deliver minimum Internet connectivity at par with, if not superior to their advertised speeds," said Santiago, who was also a former chief of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). he further added, "It would be totally unfair, even highly deceptive, for them to aggressively promote their services by assuring this or that Internet access speed, only to fall short of their promise."

finally, someone has the guts to raise this concern.... hopefully they do something about these false marketing and broadband connection issues...

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…
