THE Duterte Cabinet has approved proposed measures to improve digital readiness in the country, a Malacanang official said.

Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said one of the measures is the issuance of a provisional approval for the right of way for Department of Information Communications Technology (DICT) infrastructure projects, specifically the National Broadband Project Phase One and the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure.

Nograles said the Duterte Cabinet also approved recommendations to allow telecommunications companies to continue work even during emergencies and fix regulatory fees to be imposed by local government units on ICT (information communications technology) infrastructure.

Nograles said the government is expecting an average of 5,000 towers per year to be built over the next three years.

“The ultimate objective is to connect the Filipilino people and to provide the means for our kababayans to not just survive but to thrive in the digital age,” Nograles said.
