is normally used as synonymous of high-speed connection. However, the term takes on several meanings in relation to the fast evolution of carrier technologies - from DSL (Digital Subscribed Lines) to fibre-optic, from WiMax to NGN (Next Generation Networks). Although several presentations exist of national action plans to boost broadband development at country level, a complete collection of government strategies is missing. This page presents an overview of the state of the art based on official sources.

Feeding the hungry, educating the ignorant, sheltering the homeless
It’s called loving the poor. They too are God’s children and aren’t we all made in His image? But loving and taking care of the poor actually takes a lot more than merely saying a quiet prayer for them. I had a first hand account how other people gladly offer their lives in the service of the poor. The other day, the PLDT Smart Foundation (PSF), which entourage I was part of, visited the slums of Tondo, Manila.

Opportunities and Challenges for Social Policy: Engaging Youth Online
