From Analog to Digital: Philippine Policy and Emerging Internet Technologies


By Mary Grace Mirandilla-Santos, Jonathan Brewer, and Jaime Faustino

This report explores emerging internet technologies beyond those traditionally used for Internet connectivity in the Philippines, especially those that may benefit the unserved and underserved areas. Comprehensive research was conducted on a wide range of emerging Internet technologies. Based on the assessment, three technologies seem appropriate and feasible for the Philippines: (1) Fiber to the Premises with Gigabit Passive Optical Network (2) Fixed mobile substitution with 5G, and (3) Low earth orbit satellite networks. The report seeks to initiate the discussion on possible technologies and does not intend to endorse any particular technology for adoption in the country.
