In this news item, Cong. Joseph Santiago noticed that the cost of Internet is going down. (How very observant of this fine gentleman!) Anyway, this a clear sign that more and more people are seeing the need to be connected to the Net. Although schools and other institutions are still the traditional venues for learning, the Internet has been countlessly dubbed as your virtual classroom. Having affordable access to the Internet is about having affordable access to information – whether good or bad, mindless or important.
I’d like to think that this is also a sign of progress for our country. (Yes, people, there’s still hope for us.) Now, not only well-off people can afford to know; but the rest of us as well. And with the mushroom-like growth of Internet cafe around the Metro, it’s information at every neighborhood, any time.
I just hope that quality service is not compromised by the lower cost.
