20PHNET. 20 years of internet connections in the Philippines

JUMP Center, SM Megamall , Mandaluyong City- Philippines

 JUMP Center -venue of the seminar

When internet was introduced in 1994. we  did not have an idea that the Internet would pave the way for the growth of the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry and entrepreneurs who make money just by connecting to the Internet.

Philippine Internet, he said, started with a meager 64 kbps shared by educational institutions.

The Internet has equalized access to the world for rich and poor. Of course, it was only a footpath – an incredibly small 64 kbps (kilo bytes per second) which cost US$11,00 per month. We can now access the Internet at 100 mbps (mega bytes per second) for a few dollars.

Mr. Jim Ayson

He introduce the speakers of the event

Mr. John Dang

He discussed the future of real estate business in the country.

Mr. Markku Lepistro

Mr. Edison Tan

Three Important points: 1.) Super Apps 2.) Natural Interface 3.) Cloud

Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 70 cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.


Note: At the end of the short talk we were treated to an afternoon snacks

20.PH.NET and Beyond: 20 years of INTERNET in the Philippines

Twenty years ago, on March 29, 1994, the Philippines was first directly connected to the Internet.  


To commemorate this occasion, a series of events have been organized to give focus to the historical event. The anniversary is called “20.NET.PH” which refers to the “20th Anniversary of Philippine Internet.”

Various groups and communities around the Philippines are encouraged to organize their own events commemorating the anniversary in order to spread awareness of the milestone and encourage reflection on the state of the Internet in the Philippines today and where it should be going.

SMART DevNet is contributing by organizing an event to be held on the afternoon of March 29 to be targeted at the developer and startup community. The event is called “20.PH.NET & Beyond” and will focus on the Internet trends of TODAY that point towards the FUTURE.

This will be held at the JUMP Experience Center at the 4th level of SM Megamall from 1-4 PM on March 29, 2014. 

Somewhat modeled after TED Talks, the event will include talks on the future of technology by various internet companies. We have invited some our technology partners to give their view on the future of various industries that have benefited from the internet. These range from online real estate, cloud computing, data security, transportation systems, to operating systems.
