How would you feel every time your internet slows down in the most crucial part of online classes, work meeting and watching movies? We feel irritated and we just shouting like on the top of our lungs. It is not new for the Filipinos to experience slow and interrupted internet. I think I am experiencing it at least once or twice a week. There are hours that the internet is so slow and you just don't want to use your phone because you might throw it.

One of the things I hate in internet providers in the Philippines is they don't extend the cell towers and give us more satellite so that we can have strong and fast internet. But still it is business, business is business in here. We don't have a choice either. Recently, there are problems in the internet from Converge. We experienced one day without internet and that is very hassle. I need to load.

The problem in our area is the signal itself. Since we are near the sea, and the cell tower is far from our place. It means we can just get poor signal and when it rains, you expect your signal strength to be poor and you will receive one signal only. Then when you open your data, even if it's 4g, but the internet is so slow like a turtle. It keeps loading and loading until you loose your patience.

Satellite internet from SpaceX

After Elon Musk confirmed that Philippines will be getting a spot for their satellites, it is a good news for us. The Starlink could give satellite-enabled internet services which is tremendously advantage for the Filipinos. I am just happy when the agreement was formed because I know how much it will satisfy the Filipino needs in terms of internet. Elon knew that Philippines is a good country for the investment.

O3b mPower constellation

Aside from Elon Musk, the Luxembourg-based company SES is eyeing for our country too. Their company launched 6 out of 11 satellites called O3b mPower. According to ses.com, "O3b mPOWER rewrites the rules of satellite technology with unprecedented performance, scale and flexibility. Designed to support the rocketing data needs of businesses and organizations, it unleashes connectivity to areas without terrestrial cover and provides failsafe backup for existing networks."

Based on Rob Marabut, the current SES director for business development network. He announced that they would offer the Phippines their internet by 2023. It means only few months left and this big tech giant would be entering the Philippines too. It is a good thing that many satellite-internet based companies are considering our country for investment. He said that their internet would support 4g and 5g mobile developments in remote areas with internet speed of 1 gigabyte per second anywhere in our country.

So right now, the most exciting part is when all these companies started to implement their services here. I think the leading internet providers in the Philippines will be shaken tremendously because of what the new comers will do. For the meantime, we should just wait for them patiently. I believe when all these companies compete, the competition will be so much better.

I am excited for the prices they will offer. We can expect low and cheaper offers, promos and subscriptions. Philippines internet connection will be studier, faster and stronger than ever. This is a good opportunities for us who are earning online. We will now experience slow and interrupted internet connection anymore. Let us wait for all these things to happen.

Napakabagal talaga ng internet dito sa Pinas. Naranasan ko 5mbps tapos 10 devices nakaconnect. Sobrang bagal. Now, converge na kami nasa 30 mbps minimum net namin. Need rin namin mag upgrade kasi yung ibang may class at work. Sana talaga tuloy tuloy na yung internet system improvement dito sa Pinas and I am happy na may progress.

That would be good for the livelihood of the people in the Philippines. Many opportunities exist on the internet but without a stable Internet and power supply, people are left out and stranded. Congratulations to the Philippinos.

If not mistaken, Globe Telecom explained that the local government units is one of their problems when building cellular towers. Parang sobrang bagal daw ng process ng permit kaya ayun napapabagal din pagpapatayo nila. Pero ayun since new administration come in, may nabago yata sa sistema.

Yang starlink ni elon, sobrang expensive daw. Kasi may equipment na gagamitin para ma-utilize yung internet. Great to for far flung communities na wala talagang access sa internet. Hoping the government will help to make it accessible to ordinary Filipinos ❤️

i do not know this part, i haven't researched the related problems about building new cellular towers of internet providers. if this is true, then the problem is in the government, not in them at all.
