The importance of having a stronger internet connectivity, according to Augusto “Boboy” Syjuco

As a digital marketer, I’m always on the lookout for the people making the scene today, especially in politics. Election in the country is fast approaching, and as a responsible voter, I see to it that I’ll be giving my vote to the one who has the best interest to all of us Filipinos.

While the known presidentiables (Roxas, Duterte, Binay, Poe) has expressed their interest to be PNOY’s successor, not everyone prioritizes the importance of the faster internet in the country. So far, only Senator Bam Aquino expresses his concern over the current status of the internet connection that we’re currently having today.

Good thing that the former congressman-now presidential candidate Augusto “Boboy” Syjuco has expressed his concern on the importance of having a faster internet connectivity in the country, that in fact, it was his top priority to make sure that the country will have a more stable, faster and reliable internet connection, something that is the most essential in our lives today.

The importance of a stronger internet connectivity in the country

The internet has been a reliable tool for everyone – students, professionals, business owners, freelancers, the ordinary people. It is a medium to keep in touch easily with everyone, anywhere. It is used for data and research, transactions here and abroad, to keep track on the current events and trends, to make everyone on the loop on the latest offerings and innovations, and simply to make things easier for all. The list goes on and on, as the importance of having a steady, reliable internet connection in all places in the Philippines is a big help to everyone who is using it for greater purposes. Thus, the faster, more reliable internet connectivity is essential to all.

I’m saying this because I’ve been in the internet marketing industry for almost a decade. I’ve been in freelancing before and having a strong internet connectivity is important in creating projects and to communicate with my clients. I’ve also been using the internet for research, to create campaigns and to look for creative ideas from different artists and designers. My current stint as a digital marketer made me realize that It is indeed a necessity, for it is being used to implement the marketing campaigns on different marketing channels.

The current internet speed in the country is among the slowest (and the most costly) in the world. It’ll be best if we could have the best internet connectivity in the world diba?

About Augusto “Boboy” Syjuco

I’ve only met him and to be honest, I have no idea on his platform, credentials and everything about him. It was even more surprising that he’s running for the highest government position in the land. It may sound like he’s one of the nuisance candidates, I think he’s just “underrated” because of the other well-known candidates.

What people didn’t know that he has great credentials: He is a BSBA-Latin honor student in UE (He’s a fellow Red Warrior like me, yay!), a MBA graduate in the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a Ph.D graduate, both in Lyceum Northwestern University and in Eulogio “Amang” Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology (EARIST).

Sir “Boboy” is also well known as a good corporate leader, as he chairs in different corporations and even owned franchises in known beverage companies here in the country.


Much has been said to Sir Boboy when it comes to his stint as a government official. He has been a former TESDA secretary, and a twice-elected congressman/representative for the second district in Iloilo.

His vision of a better Philippines

Sir Boboy’s vision to provide the fastest internet connectivity is one of his platforms. He also wants to provide free education for all Filipinos and to make the Philippines to be the “jobs capital of the world”.

As a student-achiever, he sees the importance of education as a key to having a successful future. In his platform, he will see to it that he will allocate 15 million scholarships annually, which will total to 90 million in six years.

He also has a vision to make the country to become the “jobs capital in the world”. Sir Boboy believes that there is so much power in human capital. He will see to it that foreign companies are welcomed here in the country to create jobs for every skilled Pinoys. He also intends to implement the abolishment of taxes on petroleum products and other energies.

I would like to hear more of his platform aside from those listed above. I think he is one of the promising presidentiables, given the fact that he has the experience, the credentials and the passion to see more of the Philippines in a much-better state.
