Philipines is the slowest Internet speed in South East Asian Nations if not of the Whole Word.

Surfing the Internet on the speed of 3 Mbps without interruptions from the Internet provider is already considered a blessing in this small country we called Philippines.Internet surfing here is usually interrupted due to a lot of reason that the Telephone companies will give you. You will be blessed if your connection will not be interrupted by slow connection or lost connection. Yes, even when you are in the cities. it is quite surprising yo know that from the latest report that we still strive to use the Internet even if we are the lowest in the Asia in Internet connection. it is most surprising to know that our official do not know it, thanks to the latest survey report. I have the inkling of the same even before but have no data to support such claim. One of the senators I heard will investigate the said situation, I just hope that Internet surfing will improve even without the senate inquiry as immediately as possible.

Why ask for a better speed? you can do Facebook with the present speed. yes, you can accessed information through the present speed but to cover as much field in your research to your inquiry will do a lot of help if you are in better speed, the same principles applies to the traffic we are experiencing. We can cover more fields or information if we have a speedy Internet connection. uploading and unloading materials especially of video will save a lot of time and more productive time will be used in the business, work and personal level.

What does it reflect as a Nation? Wow, that is a big question. Stepping on this issue will also give us an edge as a nation. No wonder we always lagged behind our Asian neighbors. look at the chart and it will surely freaked you out compared to other nation such as Singapore.

Practically, what can I not understand is that why we lagged behind. Can you swallow the truth that we are behind Laos and Myanmar. Do we not have the right materials used in Internet connections?, Do we not afford the stiff prized of the high speed Internet connection? Do telcos overcharged us in our bill? Do telcos controls on how speed we will be using here in our country? Does National Telecommunication Company does not want us to have a high speed Internet connection. Do some politicians squeezing some money to be able to install a high speed Internet connection. or simply Some officials do not know the importance of such state of the art technology. What is really behind this story? I hope there will be some reasonable Filipinos who will find some answers on this issue and maybe some solutions to make our internet speed at least to 10 Mbps.


I read in one of the Philippine Media outfit, ABSCBN news to  exact with the Title "Why Philippine internet speeds are slow. " by Jojo Malig but did not answer the very question the title ask for. He just presented the same data I have posted here as presented in the graph.

Philippines 3.6
Laos 4.0
Indonesia 4.1
Myanmar 4.9
Brunei 4.9
Malaysia 5.5
Cambodia 5.7
Vietnam 13.1
Thailand 17.7
China 18.3
Japan 41.7
Singapore 61.0

Toyota Recall

After reading from the news that Toyota is recalling a great number of its units 6.39 million worldwide due to a large range of defects from airbags to breaks, I called Toyota customer service line (02) 819-2912 to clarify the issue. Though I used the vihicle since it was brought out from dealer centre, It was name for me because i have no financial identity in the financial community. I have the Toyota innova model 2006. I was been inform that not all Toyota Innova is under recall, only those from 2004 to 2010. They ask the chassis number as well as the engine number. So for those who will be inquiring on this matter please make sure that you have in your hand a copy of the said information. According to the guy on the other end, they will sort out if mine is included.

Supreme Court Decision on RH Law.

The Catholic Church has lost the war on Reproductive Health (RH) Law today in the Philippine situation. The Supreme Court  had ruled out that the RH law is constitutional except some provisions that were struck out.

Most of the provisions were struck down  concern more on religious liberty rather than on the protection of life nor on the artificial birth control.

Personally, I am not surprise of the outcome of the decision due to the fact that we have have really failed to educate the faithful concerning this matter.

We could no longer do anything about the past, we have to open a new chapter in our quest of protecting life and to create a more effective program for family and life ministry.

What is more important is that we fight a legal battle on this issue, though we may not won this court battle, it has teached us a tremendous lesson that we have to learn also how the world around us operates so that we can addressed the matter in the language that world understands.

Did all our prayers useless? Did our effort become has come to nothing? Absolutely no, that is the reason we pray, and we know that not all our prayers are answered, it does not also mean that we pray for the wrong intentions. God has other reasons. What is clear is that our prayer has made us more resolute in our advocacy for the dignity of human person, the defence for human life and holiness of family.
