Mobile Internet Penetration etc.

(Just a collection of some techie news I've read.)

I truly believe that the mobile is the most popular platform that would deliver internet to the Filipino masses. Unless laptops and netbooks get really, really affordable (read: minimum wage is at P320 in NCR), how else would the working proletarian have access to internet technology?

According to Nielsen Mobile, the Mobile Interent Usage Penetration of the Philippines is at 3,4%. Not bad, considering that US (no.1) only has 15.6% and UK (no.2) has 12.9%. Surprisingly (at least for me) Pinas bested Singapore (3%) and Taiwan (1.9%).


Initial peek into Wimax, 4G here.


I remember sharing the link to a PDI article discussing a reasearch on the current state of internet penetration in our country a few days ago. Here's another interpretation of that data from Yugatech.

Incidentally, the mentioned research showed that 1 out of 3 people who participated in the survey maintains a blog. Well, if you are one of those people, you might want to earn from blogging.

That's all for now!
