Communications In The Philippines

Published on 9/8/2012

Power and communications Power supply has once more become a major issue in Dipolog City, lack of a reliable supply is one of the reasons that business cannot be attracted to the area. Yes there is promised improvements under way, but with little or no maintenance to the current supply lines there are frequent cuts. There is no redundancy or alternative routing in the system so as to reduce the numbers of consumers effect by a line breakage. I discovered yesterday, that Businesses that rely on PLDT's DSL system can also be effected by longer outages as the phones stop working, probably because somewhere on the routing there is some switching that requires power and after a period of time the backup batteries fail. I had time yesterday to visit a friend who was opening a new Internet Cafe and travel booking office in Sindangan, although once again still awaiting on PLDT to install DSL A good crowd attended, mostly due to the free food, but later in the day it filled with paying customers playing online games. I met an American Expat at the opening party and we discussed at length the fact that communications via mobile phone, and Internet is resulting in building a generation who now longer know how to converse face to face. Most people were sitting around or standing carrying out conversations via SMS or chat with people rather than speak with the people around them. A generation is being created which rely on phones and the like and if these stop working they are at a loss of what to do. Young children have phones and take them to school where in breaks between lessons they can be seen using them rather than playing and interacting with those around them. We had left our son to play with his old friends in Sindangan who he has not seen for some months and when we picked him up in the afternoon we asked him what he had been doing, the answer he was on facebook... so much for his friends. Up until now my mentor Ed Mercer has has not had need of a laptop or ever sent an SMS, however as he needs to communicate with the hundred people he is aiming to turn into millionaires, he now has a new laptop and is learning how to use it.
