"Nextream sales and marketing manager John Yu expressed optimism that more electric cooperatives"

maybe konti palang ang electric coopeative na nag join. it is not that easy may ibang lugar kasi na power palang eh problema na value added service pa. halimbawa nalang dito sa amin, normal ang brown out at power fluctiations.

meron parin, NBN is NBN, goal kasi ng gov is to create their own network and infrastructure, to them "masmakakatipis daw sila". hehehe at 200+billion+anual maintenace+personel cost, I don't think so.

ayaw nila maki ride sa private network nor allow private networks to ride with them, obviously kukunin lang nila yung budget then iiwan yung project. stupid talaga yung project in the first place. at gago yung nag analyze nung cost, kasi malaki ang initial na gastos tapos, parang iniisip na maintenace free na at self repairing yung mga "sites/hubs".

sabi it will be supported by ZTE for at least 20 years. eh at 200+billion. kahit 2 billion a year ang cost ng communication ng gov. maabut din nila yung 20 years guarantee. naka tulong pa sila sa mga commercial networks (nakakuha pa sila ng tax). hindi pa kasama computed yung maintenance cost at personnel cost dun. kontin hangin lang pag natanggal yung antenna panibagong bloated na gastos sa repair yan.

OT 'to pero narinig nyo na ba yung e-Meralco Ventures? Ginagamit nila yung infrastructure nila para maglagay ng fiber network. Galing nga e. Sila rin nag-poprovide sa Globe/Innove, Bayantel at Eastern kaya maikli lang ang roundtrip papunta sa mga provider na yan.

I think this is related to a deal made with Kyushu Electric Co. of Japan with NPC last year. Kyushu Electric also operates the BBiQ fiber optic internet provider w/c touts a maximum 100Mbps up and down bandwidth. I subscribe to a similar system but from NTT. Of course you won't get the full 100Mbps, I only get up to 25Mbps down, and 10Mbps up max.

Unfortunately I think there was also a scandal related to this last year or earlier this year, where the NBI arrested a few Japanese nationals concerning overpricing and bribery.

The e-Meralco things are basically private leased lines. Di sila ISP, but basically they'll run a cable for you to your ISP of choice (most of them have termination points at vitro). From there bahala ka na mag negotiate ng bandwidth sa provider na gusto mo.

Most businesses will have at least two routes BGP'd together. For example an e-Meralco fast ethernet line running to vitro, and then riding on PLDT's I-Gate service along with a BGP to another ISP, say digitel.

That should give you a nice 30-40Mbps speedtest that you can use for pataasan ng ihe sa bandwidth threads.  >:D
(AFAIK PLDT offers businesses up to 155Mbps via I-Gate STM-1).

Medyo expensive ang fiber. Point to point connection ito based on your requirement. Darkfiber/Gigabit-Ethernet/etc.

This is our normal 1st choise if available as the primary connection secondary will be IP-VPN of whoever has the best support/deal for the particular area.

Not all areas are covered by this service.

Any idea on the legal-side of broadband over powerlines? I know a lot of modern tech isnt implemented locally due to antiquated laws.

We used to have wireless-WAN way before wireless became commonplace but had to shut it down because MERALCO owns the 2.4ghz frequency :(
