In our previous post, we complained that sometimes the speed of Smart Communications Internet is just plain zero, zilch – 0.
Smart Communications boasts of Internet service of 8 Mbps up to 100 Mbps shared bandwidth speed. But this is hardly the case. Look at the results of speed tests below run by a subscriber:
The Ayalas of Globe Telecom, Manuel V. Pangilinan, Orlando Vea, Ramon Isberto and Napoleon Nazareno of Smart Communications thirst so much to explain to the public why their service is shit. But they cannot even get around to doing that. How much more to improve their service?
Globe Telecom is doing austerity measures at present: Hundreds and thousands of its workers will be placed on contractual hire basis, like the thousands of workers of SM Shoemart who will never get a chance to be regularized. Globe Telecom spends 1.5 Million pesos severance pay for its regular workers that leave the regularized staff inside Globe. It will take a horrendously huge miracle for Globe to think and spend out of the box and take on the challenge of improving its service to the public.
But if the Ayalas are willing to shed off the image of thieves, they can actually do it. And Smart will be salivating with envy when gigabit fast internet from Globe goes online.
None of the feeling-very-intelligent individuals and institutions that published and relentlessly continue dishing out this and that study about why Internet is slow in the Philippines have arrived at even the least respectable guess as to how these two giant companies survived bilking the public without returning a modicum of good, fast internet service and still have not yet been killed in the process.
These ogres should have been jailed by now, were it for absent anti-trust laws and rules and regulations in the Philippines similar to the RICO in the United States and its equivalent in other honorable, conscientious societies.
Sadly, the oligarchy are the only ones that survive and live well in this country. The rest of the not-haves non-hispanic indios and non-intsik just have to suffer all the inanities and oppressive conditions of living in the abnormal Philippine society and hope that the next day, there will still be bread to live by and fare money to go work with.
On the other hand, the thieving National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – that have no running websites now due to hackers’ defacement resulting from extremely slow internet service – will not lift a finger to help or goad these two telecom giants to improve their service to the public. Much less the newly created agency of that faux pas, superlatively corrupt chief executive in Malacanang, called Information, Communications Technology Office – ICTO (short for IMPACTO).
The telcos are running a public service, for which they received a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN), but what are they doing? What are the monstrous NTC and the halimaw, kurimaw ICTO and DOST doing not rescinding their license? Por Dio Por Santo, the sinful people up there must be bashed several times to make them recover from their serious malaise.
This is an abomination.
If you observe and analyze the Smart Broadband speed test result in the screenshots shown above, you will note that the download speed of that particular Smart Internet product is around 1-2 Mbps. But their upload speed is only a deplorably measly 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 Mbps. What kind of connection is that? What kind of happy interchange in our Internet can be experienced when you receive your data, you are supposedly getting a turtle paced crappy speed of 1-2 Mbps but when you send your data you get only a worm like, shitty inchmeal pace of only 0.2-0.4 Mbps. That is immoral!
Recently, the summabitch people of the crime-conniving and colluding National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) proudly announced that they are conducting tests here and everywhere on the bullshit speed of Philippine Internet Service Providers. They are finding out valuable information from the tests. The officials of NTC must be out of their frigging minds. Their own non-compliance with the rulings of the ITU, and ipso facto, no licensed telco, ISP will follow the law.
Why conduct tests when all the voluminous published material of the trying very hard intellectual would-be masterpieces explaining lengthily about the issue of why Internet is so full of results of tests conducted there and tests made there and tests everywhere on the speed of Internet in the Philippines. Santa Santissima!!!
NTC, ICTO, DOST, along with their favored private sector BFFs are all guilty of violating the rulings and covenants embedded in the periodic and regular Resolutions of the World Radio Conference (WRC) assemblies organized by the International Telecommunications Union.
Atty. Canobas. A quisling of former First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo
Smiling Canobas arrived at the footsteps of government a poor man. As soon
as he was about to leave the National Telecommunications Commission, for
the great, innoble act of defying the International Telecommunications Union,
he suddenly had a string of big houses, multi-million priced luxury cars and SUVs.
Such a fortunate greedy, corrupt supposed servant of the public sector
The inimitable First Gentleman Jose Miguel “Mike” Tuason Arroyo.
Sponsor of Atty. Ruel V. Canobas to the post of Commissioner, NTC.
Atty. Arroyo now allegedly now owns the lion’s share of San Miguel Corporation.
How the hell did he put his hands on the millions of shares of SMC?
Only God and Gloria might know.
Former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo. He holds the National Telecommunications Commission, Information, Communications Technology Office, Department of Science and Technology in his hands and constantly twirls it between his stubby fingers. Under the regime of the dark man in Malacanang. How in Heaven can he do that? How is the NTC Commissioner not being removed from office when he is a chimoy of the First Gentleman? Executive Secretary Ochoa is said to be a classmate and close friend. So what is the modus vivendi between the regime and Mike Arroyo?
Atty. Arroyo’s presence will be felt all around the Philippines for a long, long time.
Very, very, very happy NTC Commissioner
Gamaliel Cordoba and his beloved pappy Mike
