OUTLINE OF CASE ANALYSIS
Background of the subject
Broadband is high speed access to the internet. Broadband is important to individuals and businesses to be able to access information faster and perform online transaction convenient using the internet. It is a key enabler of economic growth and competitiveness of nations that can contribute to social and cultural development. The availability of quality, affordable broadband services in the Philippines is essential to economic growth, development, and to reinforce social inclusion and cultural norms. The Philippine government, in its desire to accelerate the deployment of fiber optic cables and wireless technologies, and improve the overall internet speed and affordability all over the country, particularly in remote areas. The National Broadband Plan was developed to address the longstanding issue of Internet connection quality in the Philippines. In line with the Philippine Digital Strategy, also developed by DICT, the NBP zones in on the actual broadband technology solutions the country needs. In 2016, President Duterte had tasked the newly established Department of Information and Communications technology (DICT) to carry out a National Broadband Plan (NBP), citing the intended results of free public Wi-Fi access, as well as the improvement of the country’s overall Internet speed.

Areas of consideration
-1 Demographic, Political and Economic Landscape
The Philippines is a Southeast Asian country in the Western Pacific, comprised of more than 7,600 islands. It is an archipelagic country divided into 3 major island groups, namely: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Considered as one of the most dynamic economies in the East Asia region, the Philippines has been, on average, growing above 5% GDP in the past decade, with high growth of above 6% average in the past three years. With the recent change in administration, the country sees a renewed sense of vigor among industries rallying, constituting one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, with emphasis on ensuring ease of doing business and allowing for efficient delivery of government services to the public backed by technological innovations. The first SONA of President Rodrigo RoaDuterte highlights the primed recourse to technology to aid the process of permitting, informed decision making and eradicating corruption. Based from the results of Philippine Statistics Authority’s (PSA) 2015 Census of Population, the total population of the Philippines is 100.98 million. Of the country’s 18 administrative regions, Region IV-A (CALABARZON) has the biggest
population with 14.41 million, followed by the National Capital Region (NCR) with 12.88 million, and Region III (Central Luzon) with 11.22 million. On the other hand, the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) has the smallest populace with 1.37 million people.
2. In 2016, President Duterte had tasked the newly established Department of Information and Communications technology (DICT) to carry out a National Broadband Plan (NBP), citing the intended results of free public WiFi access, as well as the improvement of the country’s overall Internet speed.
The nation has long lamented over the speed and cost of Internet services in the Philippines. According to UNESCAP statistics, some 40% of the Philippine population are Internet users as of 2015. Yet, two years later, Filipinos are still able to witness a page loading.
This is an odd circumstance considering that the country also has a competitive BPO industry that employs more than a million people. More industries are increasing their reliance on the Internet, but connectivity issues hamper advancements.
3. MANILA, Philippines – A proposed national broadband network by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is expected to provide at least 10-Mbps connection to all households by 2020 at a much lower cost than today’s average of P1,299 per month.
This is the promise of DICT’s creation of a “north to south” broadband plan, which would cost around P77.9 billion, as stated in its draft blueprint.
Over the course of 10 years (2017 – 2027), the NBP will have produced 4 parallel outcomes through its overall strategy of staging interventions within the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry.
The outcome should identify the following.
-Security – It can be great threat for businesses,stablishments,School,people and etc for not tight and intact security and making their transactions online.
-CYBERCRIME- Broadband plan can be a big part in the increasing and widening cybercrime and pornographic acts happening today and can double up in the future.
Hacking – It can be use for invading privacy, making malicious acts and leaking confidentials like trade secrets online.
– Lack of Filipino’s in IT security professionals – that can promote cybersecurity awareness in the country. Because there will be a trust issue on a broadband plan to the people who will use it. that can be everyone’s reason to fear about.
Broadband is a key enabler of economic growth and competitiveness of nations
that can contribute to social and cultural development. The availability of quality, affordable broadband services in the Philippines is essential to facilitate innovation, economic growth, and development, and to reinforce social inclusion and cultural norms. The opportunity can be given with these areas.
• Economic transformation in the national and sectoral levels, and necessary adaptation of public and private sectors to meet the challenges and
imperatives of operating in the global economy. Broadband will transform the way in which transactions are conducted and will redefine the value and supply chains and the relationships of the parties in such chains.
• Productive efficiency as business and government processes are made more effective. In particular, broadband will help improve access to information and the cycle times for various processes in the economy. Transaction costs will be decreased and wastefulness associated with existing processes will also be further reduced.
• Improved public administration and service delivery through the development of e-government online transactions to improve quality, to save cost, and increase access and convenience. More people will be able to access more government services more often and more efficiently.
• Social inclusion as people build and reinforce communities online, and support the reach, connections and interactions of individuals and groups.
• Unlimited opportunities for personal development and acquisition of new skills.
• Greater acquaintance with and experience of the external environment in both education and leisure.
• Reinforcement and preservation of culture and cultural norms.
• Development of new products, services, and applications to enrich the cultural, social and business life of the Philippines.
• Realization of potentials in a digital economy.
Analyze the following
The NBP aims to provide internet broadband connection in the whole country, including rural and remote areas, due to the increasing usage of devices that have necessities of an internet connection. But to make this possible, it has to pass through the legalities of the law. In order to do so, they do measures such as:
Reviewing and amending related laws governing the ICT Industry:
ARTICLE XIII, SECTION 11 OF THE 1987 CONSTITUTION
COMMONWEALTH ACT NO. 146 (Public Service Act)
REPUBLIC ACT NO. 146 (Public Telecommunications Policy Act)
REPUBLIC ACT NO. 3846 (Radio Control Law)
Developing additional laws, policies and regulations regarding internet broadband usage, some of these are:
Open Access Policy
Dig Once Policy
They also adopt standards for the fiber deployment in commercial and residential areas. They also have to secure related legal permits for infrastructures, environmental and industrial areas that can be affected by the construction, installation and operation of equipment and info structures to be used.
The Newly formed Department of Information and Telecommunications Technology (DICT) is the one heading the implementation of NBP. They are pursuing the participation of National Telecommunications Commissions(NTC), existing telecommunication companies (PLDT, Globe ) as well as other ISPs (Internet Service Providers), Cable TV Operators, and new market players in utilizing the facilities, for faster and more effective development of the project across the country, and to lower the implementation cost . They are also ensuring the connectivity to public schools and other establishments, and considering the use of satellite and other relevant technologies for more effective and broader connectivity, especially in remote and unserved areas. They will also hold an information dissemination in different areas of the country about the importance of broadband connectivity and technology utilization.
Once implemented, it will undergo track monitoring and annual review and evaluation, to ensure maintenance of current success. NBP will be implemented in the whole country, reaching unserved and remote areas.
The outcome should identify the following.
Accelerated Investment. Market players, such as existing and upcoming Internet and telecommunications providers, will be given the opportunity to penetrate underserved and UNserved areas, particularly the ones outside of industrial zones and major cities.
Mobilized and Engaged Public and Private Sector The government will be working with both public and private institutions relevant to the improvement and deployment of broadband technologies. The crux of this strategy is coordination among all involved institutions to minimize implementation costs as well as public disruptions from physical construction.
More Places Connected. All government facilities, public schools, health institutions, and MSMEs will adopt current technologies and benefit from Internet connectivity. In addition to broadband infrastructures, the government will also utilize other technologies namely spectrum
1. High monthly fee compared to dialup internet access.
2. Higher security risk than dialup connection. A personal firewall is needed to protect your computer.
3. Not all phone wires are equipped for DSL service. May not be available in rural or remote areas.
4. Not all cable TV networks are equipped for cable internet access. May not be available in rural or remote areas.
-Define your strategy by area
The researcher has the corresponding recommendation that contribute to the improvement of the of the National Broadband Plan project in all areas needed (1) the project must lower the monthly fee for internet access (2) The project must improve security risk in connection by providing a personal firewall to protect the computer.(3) the project must provide all phone wires that are equipped for DSL service. So that the project will be available in rural or remote areas.(4) provide all cable TV networks that are equipped for cable internet access to secure that it will be available in rural or remote areas.
