- Chavit Singson made a promise to the Filipinos to provide the cheapest telco service in the country
- He said that Wi-Fi should be free in the Philippines
- However, the netizens had different reactions to Singson’s promise
Former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson talks about his company’s bid for the third telecommunications company in the Philippines. The Luis Chavit Singson (LCS) Group is tied up with TierOne Communications.
KAMI learned from Rappler that Singson promised to provide the cheapest telco service in the country.
“Kung P100 ang presyo nila (Globe or Smart), kami P5 lang. Dapat nga libre ang Wi-Fi,” Singson stated.
P140 billion is required for bidders to spend as per terms of reference. For Singson, they will be shedding such huge amount as “service to the Filipino”. He said that this will serve as a “charity” for them.
The netizens were quick to react to the promise of Singson. Here are some of their comments on Rappler’s Facebook page:
“Tutuhanin nu po yan sir ha, miron ako kilala ganun hehe, iba ang ginagawa sa sinasabi”
“Free WiFi kamo? Parang 3-6 months na naman coming from a politician!”
“We don't need cheap cost what we need is a high value of service. Pagdating sa telco matters lalo n internet most of tge people are willing to pay the right amount.”
“ Sabi ni Ethel Booba “If it’s too good to be true, it’s not true. Charot!” Parang 3 to 6 months, ba!”
“Sinong niloko mo? Sa start lang yan pero pagtumagal tatapatan nyo ang globe at smart. Libre wifi? Baka signal lang pero alang connection??”
“Cheap?? But, is it reliable? Oh please, we are tired of choosing between lesser evil!”
“Patunayan mo muna...naloko na kami ng bossing mo ngayon maniniguro na kami.....mas masakit kung dalawang beses pa kami maloko...”
“Baka pag nanalo na kayo sabihin nyo di nyo akalain ganun na kalala ang problema tapos tatawad ka ng 2 years pag 2 years na sabihin nyo kahit 6 years pa hindi nyo kaya puro pangako lang pala para manalo. Parang di na bago yang mga ganyang yabang eh”
There are 17 companies that are part of Singson’s consortium. Therefore, Singson is confident that they will be winning in the bid.
