Jack Ma's comment on state of PHL internet a wake-up call for telcos —PCC

His comment should serve as a "wake-up call" for telecommunications companies to improve internet service, the antitrust watchdog said in a statement.

During a forum at De La Salle University on Wednesday, the founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Limited said he tried the internet service and found it was not good.

“Jack Ma just experienced what we Filipinos have been suffering from all this time. This serves as a wake-up call for telecom companies to deliver on their promise a year after they have acquired the frequencies," the commission said.

Globe and PLDT gained access to the 700-megahertz spectrum after the telcos co-acquired the telecommunications assets of San Miguel Corp. for P69.1 billion last year.

“Indeed, the PCC believes that both industry and the government can implement ways to improve internet speeds," it said.

"On PCC's part, our role is to foster competition in the telecom market. This means opening up the market to more players and leveling the playing field between incumbents and entrants, between big and small players," the PCC added.

Opening up the sector to more competition will translate to more choices, better quality, and affordable services to consumers, the commission noted.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
