The Philippines is becoming a Digital Nation, and connectivity has a lot to do with it. Did you know that the number of mobile subscriptions in the country outnumber the actual national population? It's no surprise that we as a nation have broken a number of global social media records from selfies to trending tweets.

 

Mobile use in the country has evolved from mere calls and texts with today's internet-capable smartphones. Now we can order food delivery, hail a cab, and even do banking transactions all in the palm of our hands. Our lives have truly changed for good since then.

 

In the road to #WondrfulPH, we want to encourage future leaders and influencers of this country to look into Information and Communications Technology. ICT can power an entire nation's development as seen in countries such as Singapore and South Korea. It can contribute to a number of sectors, from government services, access to education and healthcare, as well as enhancing existing data on national sentiments about the upcoming elections.


Together with Rappler, let's educate ourselves on the true state of Internet in the country, and how exactly can ICT push national development in the Philippines. Take a look below.
