Can an Internet-savvy Philippines Politician promise better internet for all?

As a Filipino Internet user, I wish a Philippine politician/group would promise what the Canadian Democratic Party did.

  • We will apply the proceeds from the advanced wireless spectrum auction to ensure all Canadians, no matter where they live, will have quality high-speed broadband internet access;
  • We will expect the major internet carriers to contribute financially to this goal;
  • We will rescind the 2006 Conservative industry-oriented directive to the CRTC and direct the regulator to stand up for the public interest, not just the major telecommunications companies;
  • We will enshrine “net neutrality” in law, end price gouging and “net throttling,” with clear rules for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), enforced by the CRTC;
  • We will prohibit all forms of usage-based billing (UBB) by Internet Service Providers (ISPs);
  • We will introduce a bill on copyright reform to ensure that Canada complies with its international treaty obligations, while balancing consumers’ and creators’ rights.

Send a poor kid to school for $12/PHP 500 a month

Help send a poor kid to school for $12 (PHP500) a month by donating to Kara David’s Project Malasakit.
It’s cheaper than a WoW monthly sub and it’s more worthwhile too.
