  1. The Roku Streaming digital Player has been around since 2002 and developed in Japan.

    Rolling out a 15 year old tech in the Philippines is innovative ?

  2. “PLDT Home has always been at the forefront of innovation, both in technology and in content

    Haha man that is funny. They innovate nothing, Like every other internet provider in the Philippines they provide one of the most expensive services with the high latency and slow speeds in the known world and pat themselves on the back as if they are special.

    Same level of service as the electric and water providers in the country. Blackouts all the time and yet they pass out awards to themselves every year.

    Forefront of innovation ? That’s comedy gold right there.
