  4. competition with internet providers in our country just got better. new players are offering much better service with cheap rates. our old providers like PLDT must do their expansion because of the stiff competition. and we hope that they will also lead with lowering their rates because even if they increase their capacity but still have higher rates, many consumers will still consider the cheaper options
