Photo: Only 1 Senator Attends Senate Hearing On Slow PH Internet?

The Philippines has been called the social media capital of the world but ironically, the country has one of the slowest, most expensive internet in southeast Asia. In a country where everyone is online, this poses somewhat of a problem.

Two days ago, on August 18, there was a senate hearing on slow PH internet speed. The senate turnout, however, was disappointing. According to a tweeted photo by Kiko Acero shared by Facebook user Vernon Go, only Senator Bam Aquino was present.

According to a survey by ASEAN DNA, the average ASEAN internet speed is 12.4 mbps and the PH lags at an average of 3.6 mbps.

What does this say about our senators?
