    I would like to upgrade from my crappy 2MB plan with Globe when I get back (I usually get .5MB down at best with them).

    Calling the situation of Internet service in the country as “pathetic” and “unacceptable,” Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero said he would look into ways the government could intervene and boost the nation’s information technology (IT) sector.

    “The current situation in the country is, sad to say, unacceptable. The state of internet speed is pathetic, and unless we remedy this situation, our IT sector is likely to suffer in the long term,” Escudero said in a statement.

Rinse, wash, repeat. :wink:
