Last November 15, the above-mentioned organizations has teamed up for the Strategic Engagement and Collaboration to Undertake a Reliable and Efficient Government Internet (SECURE GovNet) project.

According to the news reported by PTV, the project SECURE GovNet aims to build the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, an ultra high-speed information highway that will greatly improve the speed, affordability, and accessibility of broadband internet across the archipelago of the Philippines.

BCDA will build the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure which includes of two cable landing station connected 250-km long cable network corridor.

The cable will provide direct connections from Luzon to internet hubs in the United States and Asia, DICT Officer-in-Charge/Secretary Eliseo Rio Jr. said.

Facebook will construct and operate the submarine cable system that will land in the cable stations on the East and West Coasts of Luzon.

In exchange for utilizing the bypass infrastructure, Facebook will provide the Philippine Government with spectrum equivalent to at least 2-million megabits per second (Mbps), Rio said.

In comparison, the 2-million Mbps (or 2-terabyte per second) capacity, is almost equal to the current combined capacity of Globe and Smart-PLDT.

In short, the SECURE GovNet will be the 3rd major player. This project is inline w/ national broadband plan by current administration to significantly improve internet speed and reduce cost.
