The proposed NBN (National Broadband Network) project of the Philippine government is an extensive ambition to connect all government agencies in the archipelago. I think even in remote barangays around the Philippines would be a beneficiary of the said project.
This is great news for the Filipinos. We can be at par with other high-tech countries like Singapore if ever this NBN project would be implemented.
I have no comment about ZTE (the would be company from China that would build the network). I think ZTE has done very well since it was established in 1985. With its vast client from around the world. And it has lot to offer ranging from network products cover wireless, data, optical transport, switching, video conferencing, power supply, monitoring, mobile handsets, etc.
But because of all the controversies circling the NBN project lately, which cost a whooping budget of $329 million to build and which involves high profile personalities in the country that are rumored to have high commisions on the said deal. The said NBN-ZTE dream project is coming to a grinding halt. I’m just keeping my fingers-crossed and hoping that it will still push through for it will benefited the country a lot in the long run.
