Sen. Grace Poe: Speeding up internet needs crisis powers too
On Thursday, September 22, Senator Grace Poe vowed to include in the emergency powers bill a provision that would commit local goverments to expedite issuance of permits for cell sites in a bid to speed up internet service.
“We want to include the obtaining of permits for cell towers to be part of emergency powers so that we will have faster internet and clear cell phone service,” Poe said
Poe said that people can work at home if their internet service is fast and it will also reduce traffic within the metro.
“Some people will no longer have to work in offices, they can just work at home. This will reduce traffic because we can already do telecommuting,” Poe said.
“When you think about it, if you have good internet service, you can work at home. Your boss will say ‘OK, since our office space is small.’ Or you’re a mother who would like to be with your children while working, you can work at home,” she added.
