Why be afraid of China? Andanar says Chinese telco giant Huawei is already running PH telecoms

 

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar brushed off fears that China would spy on Filipinos if President Rodrigo Duterte allowed a Chinese telecom player to smash to the Smart-Globe duopoly.

In have a TV interview, Andanar said as far as he was concerned, the Chinese have practically controlled the local mobile phone market by being the biggest provider of equipment and handsets by the two mobile phone giants.

“Alam n’yo po sa pagkakalam ko ag majority ng ating telephony ngayon sa Pilipinas at iyong mgfa tore natin, iyong nagpapatakbo ng ating mobile network is already Huawei, is already made in China,” said Andanar.

“Pati iyong sa Transco, sa NGCP (National Grid Corp. of the Philippines), ang mga investors po diyan ang gamit pong technology, China. Kahit saan ka magpunta sa buong mundo. Marami na pong gumagamit ng Chinese technology. Even doon sa Australia,” he added.

Andanar said that whether the third telco player would be from China or South Korea or Europe, the bottomline should be whether the Smart-Globe rival would provide faster internet and more reliable mobile phone service.

So, again ang pinakamahalaga po dito, sa dulo nito, ay mabigyan ng magandang serbisyo ang ating mga kababayan.

“Mabilis na internet, walang dropped calls. At kahit nasa halfway ka, kasit saan ka. Sa Japan, nasa subway ka may signal. Sa Hongkong, nasa subway ka may signal. Sa ilalim ka ng lupa, may signal,” said Andanar.

“HNndito ako sa Bonifacio Global City, tapos may nadaanan akong isang area, nawawala iyong boses mo, It’s unimaginable. Nandito ka na sa central district ng Pilipinas. Ang central business central district, Makati saka BGC, iyan lang naman iyan… And yet nawawala pa rin iyong signal, garbled iyong usapan, bumalik,” he added.
