Ping, Aayuda para sa Dagdag Pondo ng National Broadband, Free Wi-Fi Programs sa 2021

Desidido si Senador Panfilo Lacson na itulak ang pagkakaloob ng malaking pondo sa pambansang gastusin sa susunod na taon ang national broadband program at libreng Wi-Fi.

Nakikita kasi ng mambabatas na ang mga programang nabanggit ang magiging pundasyon para tumibay ang ekonomiya ng bansa.

“This is the backbone of our economy. In this day and age of modern information technology, we have no reason not to catch up or to be at par with neighboring countries, considering that potential investors’ first concern would be internet speed,” banggit ni Lacson sa pagdinig ng Senado sa panukalang badyet ng Department of Information and Communications Technology at National Telecommunications Commission.

Ayon kay Lacson, ang maasahang ICT system ay nangangahulugan ng mas maraming oportunidad para sa mga Pinoy na maipakita ang kagalingan at abilidad.

“I am a believer in ICT because there is so much we can do if our ICT is efficient,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.

‘ICT Believer’: Lacson Commits to Support Bigger 2021 Budgets for National Broadband, Free Wi-Fi Programs

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Tuesday threw his full support behind the government’s plan to provide free Wi-Fi especially in far-flung areas, and to set up a national broadband program.

Lacson said he will push for a bigger budget for the two programs, as he noted these will serve as the backbone of the country’s economy.

“This is the backbone of our economy. In this day and age of modern information technology, we have no reason not to catch up or to be at par with neighboring countries, considering that potential investors’ first concern would be internet speed,” Lacson said at the budget hearing for the Department of Information and Communications Technology and National Telecommunications Commission.

“I am a believer in ICT because there is so much we can do if our ICT is efficient,” he added.

‘Not so Bad’ Just Not Good Enough: DICT Should Aim for ‘Excellent’ Internet Connection

With all due respect to a highly regarded Cavalier and distinguished former Senate colleague, “not so bad” may sound worse than “not so good.”

In the middle of a pandemic when the order of the day is virtual communication, what we want to hear, at least realistically, is “good enough.”

Of course, it goes without saying, “very good” or even “excellent” is what we all want to hear from DICT. Clearly, there is much room for improvement.

Lacson Pushes Web-based Monitoring for Provincial Projects

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is pushing for Web-based monitoring of the implementation of infrastructure projects at the provincial level, to ensure transparency and efficiency.

Lacson said such a system could take a cue from that being implemented in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), which uses apps like Google Maps.

β€œI would suggest (that this be implemented at the) provincial level. Provincial governments should replicate the ARMM’s map-based solution,” Lacson, who authored Senate Bill 40 seeking to implement budget reform by downloading resources to local governments, said at a Senate hearing.

Online Monitoring sa mga Gov’t Projects Itinulak ni Ping

Puwede nang masubaybayan ng mga mamamayan ng isang partikular na rehiyon o lalawigan sa mas madali at mabilis na paraan ang itinatakbo ng mga proyektong ipinatupad ng kanilang mga lokal na opisyal,

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng iminumungkahi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na pagpapatupad sa buong bansa ng sistemang ginagamit ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) sa pagmonitor sa mga proyekto ng rehiyon.

Sa sistema kasi na ginagamit ng ARMM ay madaling malalaman kung hanggang saang yugto na ang nararating ng isang proyekto dahil sa internet na lamang ito binibisita sa pamamagitan ng Google Map application.
