Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Martin Andanar said the Info Tech Review Committee was given 15 days to come up with proposals to improve internet access in the country.
“It will review the national broadband plan of the government and we will review it for the next 15 days then we will come up with a recommendation to the president,” Andanar told radio station dzBB Sunday.
The committee is headed by National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. It consists of the heads of PCOO, the Department of Information and Communications Technology and presidential adviser on economic affairs and information technology communications Ramon Jacinto.
“We were instructed to move as soon as possible. DICT is part of the council. (There is) no duplication because it’s just a review committee (that) will advise the president,” Andanar said in a text message.
“We will expedite all necessary options to fast-track the establishment (of connections) and connectivity in our country.”
