news for additional insight in relation to this thread...

By Joel D. Pinaroc, ZDNet Asia

The country's Internet access industry is undergoing major changes with traditional Internet service provides (ISPs) now making way for multi-service, multi-focus companies offering services that go beyond basic Internet access.

According to William Torres, president of industry group Philippine Internet Services Organization (PISO), Internet companies in the Philippines have transformed their business to align themselves with emerging market demands, such as online games and communications.

"We have seen how traditional ISPs, which have invested heavily on providing Internet access [services] only, may have had to close shop or transform themselves to keep up with emerging demands," Torres said, in an interview with ZDNet Asia.

He noted that the industry is moving away from traditional online services, "forcing" these companies to transform.

Also the chairman and president of local ISP Mozcom, one of the largest Internet services companies in the Philippines, Torres said the availability of broadband and falling broadband rates have paved the way for the emergence of smaller ISPs that have overtaken their larger peers in terms of presence and customer base.

The wider availability of broadband services has proven to be a catalyst for small service providers to enter the access business, and in the process, grab a significant piece of the pie that "traditional" ISPs previously dominated, he said.

More importantly, Torres added, growing segments of the Philippine society are "discovering more and more uses" of the Internet.

"Suddenly, demand for cheaper alternatives for voice calls such as VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol), [is providing] a good source of revenues for small cafés, with more and more customers, particularly those with relatives and families abroad, discovering the technology and how easy it is to walk into a neighborhood café and make that overseas call," he said.

According to Torres, PISO projects that only a handful of ISPs still play in the access-only business, where the majority are now opting to diversify their services.

"By our own estimate, we have some 200 to 300 value-added service providers in Metro Manila alone," Torres said. More than 20 of the country's largest ISPs now offer VoIP services, including Mozcom, he added.

By PISO's unofficial estimate, Torres said there are some 1.4 million Internet subscribers in the Philippines, and 600,000 who access the Internet wirelessly.

However, he added, the actual user base could be as high as 9 million to 10 million because some of these individual subscribers may be small Internet cafés, which are "common access centers" for several other to access the Web.

Torres noted that government agency National Computer Center (NCC) is currently conducting a nationwide Internet survey, though developments are still under wraps due to the scope of the project. "The NCC survey will give us a more accurate picture on the number of Internet users, and Internet usage in the Philippines," he said.

Role of the government
Meanwhile, the Philippine government is urging for more changes in the Internet industry and calling for cyber cafés to promote Internet adoption, Torres said.

The emergence of Internet cafés as multi-purpose centers has prompted some government agencies to look these centers as possible solution to extend adoption, particularly in rural areas across the Philippines.

Torres explained: "The government's Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) and a host of private associations are working hand-in-hand in encouraging more ISPs to promote access."

He added that the government is looking at establishing "e-centers", which can be deployed to allow more rural areas to have Internet access.

The task, however, is daunting, Torres said, considering that the country is an archipelago and wireless broadband access is much more expensive than fixed-line broadband.

"But for areas that can be reached by a telephone line, these multi-purpose centers will help promote access," he said.

The Philippine government said it currently has 700 community e-centers scattered nationwide.

Torres said some smaller cyber cafés can even specialize in providing only VoIP services, particularly in areas where there is a large concentration of individuals with family members working overseas.

Sir Benelynne you're thinking huge stuff. Looking at Sir Macky's gathered info, it looks like, it will surely takes a lot of jobs for skilled Boholanos. The question is, are there still any? It seems to me they're all working abroad or even planning to go abroad. Can you convince them to stay?
I'm not in Bohol but yes, i'm interested to this topic. So Gentlemen please keep it coming, I'm still reading.

B:) I realized that brain-drain is non-existent anymore. The world is now squeezed and shrinking to a small dot (.com that is). Look at us in Tubag Bohol. We are miles away, yet you are now 24 inches away vertually.

I believe everything is possible right now vertually.

Just woke up from a long hibernation. I was down with flu during New Year. The cold is biting in this part of Japan. But I'm glad this thread is still up and about.

When all our ideas have gestated at the right time, we can further sift those that are workable and compatible to our competencies and financial resources.

But the experiences of those who have tried their hand at business in Tagbi would also be valuable input. I am just curious what opportunities and pitfalls we should be aware of...

If I remember correctly, Asianfairy had shared about her experience in travel & tour. What we can do is not to duplicate existing businesses and thereby be in competition but expand them through our TB network. In the case of travel & tour, if we do not have to reinvent the wheel and create the business infrastructure all over again with all its concomitant costs, we can be happy with a commission override on additional transactions from our own networks in the country we're based in.

Hi GEC,

Sorry for having allowed this thread to languish for a long time. Actually, during the whole time, I was doing some legwork, research and rehash of ideas... As I mentioned somewhere in this thread, no need to rush.

I checked with the Department of Tourism office in Tokyo about the P500,000 capital investment as a requirement for accreditation. I was referred to a DOT website where this was not explicitly stated. I was also told that DOT accreditation is an option and not a legal requirement to run the travel and tour business. They told me that the only advantage with accredited business entities is that DOT will actively promote and advertise the business in its materials.

Anyway, I will be starting another thread which is an offshoot of our inputs here. I appreciate receiving your inputs.

It's time to revisit this thread after so many holidays.... Just recently a friend of mine who was based in Saudi for 5 years went home and provided information about the business climate in Bohol and Tagbilaran in particular.  What prevails presently or existing in Tagbilaran is an indicator or would like to spell out that Bohol business is improving though most of the entrepreneurs are not really from the province.  So with the downturn of the money/currency exchange, murag panahon na nga manguli ta and venture into something that would sufficiently sustain our requirements if the disparity of income while working overseas is just too narrow.

Hi Jun,

Glad to meet you in this thread again. I can almost feel that you are raring to start your business. I will most probably be at the grand EB, barring any unfavorable happenstance.

I myself have decided to explore business opportunities, mainly in Cebu and Bohol, this year, using my own network of Japanese and Japan-based Filipino clients.

I am putting off the idea of a call center for now, after getting negative feedback from my call center associates. The impending US recession is casting a pall over Japan's economy as well. And with the peso getting strong or stabilizing at a high exchange rate, earning in yen does not seem as attractive as it used to be. You're right, the disparity of income between doing business locally and working abroad is not that big anymore, according to my friends in business.

In another thread I started here, I am planning to ride on the trend of the English study tours among Japanese students and young professionals. I am floating the idea of offering a package at half the price they would pay for if they do it in Australia, a favorite destination and the closest competition.

I need help with the ground logistics in Bohol. Perhaps we can cooperate in this area.

Hi Benellyne,

Will be looking forward to meet you this coming GRAND EB, which will also coincide on my business launching during this period.  And with your idea in mind, I would say that we could still relate and could translate this into a promising business relationship.

I would be engaging into events management, professional consultancy and outsourcing ( which include training and other human resources related endeavors ).

Capitalizing on your network in Japan, we could promote Bohol tourism and at the same time learning English through our business outfit.  I've got a network of training providers (world-class / international competencies ) which would not be difficult for us to establish.

If you heard about what Dubai is doing? then we could do it here in Bohol and could start with Japanese, Chinese and even Arabs.  We could promote a package of sort ... an educational tour ( business, pleasure and learning... ).

We could explore more on this.  Am inviting you to be a partaker on one of the services available in the due-to-be launched business outfit.  I've been preparing this concept two years back.  The thing is, we have to get on board with tourism and diversify...
