Upgraded broadband to lift Cebu’s global outsourcing ranking

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s pronouncement about faster Internet access in the country will benefit the already vibrant outsourcing sector in Cebu. Cebu Educational Development Foundation for Information Technology (Cedf-IT) executive director Wilfredo Sa-a Jr. said addressing the issues on Internet reliability and speed will lift Cebu’s standing as a prominent outsourcing destination in the world. It will also boost the growth of tech startups, he added. During his State of the Nation Address (SONA), Duterte directed the Department of Information and Communication Technology to develop a national broadband plan.
