Bent on seeing an improved internet in the country, particularly in the rural areas, the Better Broadband Alliance (BBA) is calling on the Congress to pass the Open Access in Data Transmission and Faster Internet Services bills.

The two bills are said to be critical in the policy reforms and will essentially pay attention to President Rodrigo Duterte’s recurring imperatives towards improved telecommunications and internet services.

Receiving the call in the form of a letter are Senate President Vicente Sotto III and House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco.
