Proposed Internet Cap, Junked

Friday, January 14, 2011

Where’s the “unlimited” in a provision that will place a cap on daily internet usage, right? This is what the protesters were fighting for when the National Telecommunications Commission announced that there is already a draft proposal that if and when approved will limit daily download of users. Ala, this controversial provision in rules was scrapped on Wednesday after the well-attended public consultation in Quezon City.

I say kudos to NTC! Although I am not against the limit to cut internet addiction, I still believe that internet providers should at least improve on their services first (increase speed, deym!) and not impose this new rule to current subscribers who signed up & are supposedly paying for “unlimited” usage.

I can see that in the very near future, companies will be more wary of their marketing strategies.
