The office of Senator Bam Aquino announced that PLDT has finally agreed to be part of the local IP peering group, Philippine Open Internet Exchange (PHOpenIX), which is maintained by DOST ASTI (Department of Science and Technology- Advanced Science and Technology Institute).
PHOpenIX is the only Exchange in the Philippine Internet industry operated by a neutral institution that allows the exchanges of Internet traffic in a free-market environment among local internet and data service providers; the members of the PHOpenIX include Sky Broadband, Eastern Telecoms, Globe Telecom, Birstop Networks, Comclark, Bayantel, DataOne, Akamai, PhilCom, BellTel, DataOne Asia and many others.
This development will finally resolve that issue that has been the subject of debates and even a senate inquiry led by Sen. Bam Aquino.
