“This project is composed of two parallel three-lane road divided with another single lane in the middle, additional bike lane each in right and left and a walkway with a total width of 24 meters wide. The road is 1.4 kilometers long that stretch towards the baywalk (near the San Fernando bay),” said Rigor.

PPMC, a subsidiary of BCDA, will monitor the construction to ensure that the plans and specifications of the project will be done properly.

Meanwhile, PMPC President Felix Racadio said there are already some investors who sent letters of intention to put up businesses at the Freeport Zone but they are still in the process of negotiations.

IN THE NEWS: Philippine Government Teams Up with Facebook for High Speed Broadband Infrastructure

Quote:
Today, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) launched their project called Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, with Facebook as the first party utilizing the infrastructure. The project will build an ultra high speed information highway that will greatly improve the speed, affordability and accessibility of broadband Internet throughout the country. It is expected to be online at the end of 2019.

BCDA will build the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, consisting of two cable landing stations connected by a 250-km long cable network corridor. The Luzon Bypass Infrastructure leverages the geographical advantage of the Philippines by providing a terrestrial bypass route for international submarine cable owners seeking diversity from the Luzon Strait, which has a history of multiple simultaneous submarine cable breaks.

As the first party to utilize the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, Facebook will construct and operate a submarine cable system that will land in the cable stations on the East and West Coasts of Luzon. The cable will provide direct connections from Luzon to Internet hubs in the United States and Asia.

DICT will operate the Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, maintain the related facilities and provide last mile connectivity in the Philippines.

In exchange for utilizing the bypass infrastructure, Facebook will provide the Philippine Government with spectrum equivalent to at least 2 million Mbps, significantly expanding the capacity available for the Government’s connectivity programs.

Tagalog news: ‘Dark fiber deal' para sa National Broadband Plan, nilagdaan na


June 11, 2018 Jerome Carlo R. Paunan


Quote:
LUNGSOD MAYNILA, Hunyo 11 (PIA) – Nilagdaan na ng Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), at National Transmission Corp. (TransCo) nitong Biyernes ang kasunduan para magamit ang “dark fiber” para sa National Broadband Plan ng administrasyong Duterte.




Ang “tripartite agreement” ay nilagdaan nila DICT Acting Secretary Eliseo Rio Jr., NGCP chairman and CEO Anthony Almeda, at ni TransCo president Melvin Matibag sa Philippine International Convention Center sa Pasay City.

Sa ilalim ng kasunduan, magkakaroon ang DICT ng “indefeasible right” para magamit ang ilang fiber optic cores, mga bakanteng lote, mga utility tower, at iba pang pasilidad ng NGCP. Ang NGCP ang private concessionaire ng power grid na pagmamay-ari naman ng TransCo, isang ahensya ng pamahalaan sa ilalim ng Department of Energy. Ang ibig sabihin ng indefeasible right ay karapatang hindi mapawawalang-bisa.

May haba itong dark fiber asset na 6,154-kilometro at gumagapang mula Luzon hanggang Mindanao. Dark fiber ang tawag dito dahil hindi pa ito ginagamit o hindi pa ito pinadaraanan ng ilaw na magsisilbing daluyan ng data at impormasyon.

Inabot naman ng pitong taon para mapagtibay ang nasabing kasunduan dahil sa ilang hindi pagkakaunawaan na nangyari noon sa pagitan ng NGCP at TransCo kung sino ang may karapatan sa paggamit ng dark fiber.

“This is seven years in the making. Coming to this agreement, we had a lot of arguments and disagreements, but despite all of these things, we are all here together to sign the agreement,” ani Matibag.

Dahil sa kasunduan, ani DICT Undersecretary Dennis Villorente, mas mapadadali na ang pagpapatupad sa national broadband plan sapagkat magsisilbing “backbone” o “high-speed, high-capacity digital connection” ito na daraanan ng dark fiber asset para sa Luzon bypass infrastructure.

“As a result, the deployment of fiber optic cables will be accelerated,” ayon kay Villorente.

Dahil sa libreng paggamit ng dark fiber, tinatayang aabot sa US$2.6-bilyon o P137.5-bilyon halaga ng imprastraktura at paggawa ang natipid ng pamahalaan para sa implementasyon ng national broadband plan.

“What is the significance of this more than 6,000 kilometers of fiber? About eight months ago we signed with Facebook itong 2 terabits per second bypassing infrastructure. It involves two landing stations, Poro Point and then Aurora,” ani Rio.

Noong Nobyembre 2017, nakipagkasundo ang pamahalaan sa Facebook para sa paglalatag ng “submarine cable landing system”. Layon nito na pabilisin ang internet hanggang “2 terabits per second” o 2Tbps sa pamamagitan ng pag-konek sa Pilipinas sa bansang Estados Unidos at sa rehiyon ng Asya simula 2019.

Sa ilalim ng kasunduan, ilalatag at pagaganahin ng Facebook ang isang cable system na dadaan sa Baler, Aurora at sa Poro Point sa San Fernando, La Union.

Matatandaan din na sa State of the Nation Address noong 2017 ay ipinag-utos ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang pagtaguyod sa national broadband plan upang mapabilis ang internet speed sa bansa. (PIA-NCR)

Region 1’s prime socio-economic movers conducted dialogue with the Socioeconomic Planning Secretary and Director-General of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Ernesto M. Pernia, and his team composed of Undersecretary for Regional Development Office, Dr. Adoracion Navarro, and Dir. Allan Ancheta of the Office of the Secretary, during the latter’s visit in La Union last February 8, 2019 at the Thunderbird Resort’s Clubhouse, San Fernando City, La Union. The meeting aimed to apprise the Secretary on the socioeconomic situation, status of key projects and development challenges and get his views on sustaining the gains and in addressing some development issues.

As input to the dialogue, the President of the Poro Point Management Corporation (PPMC), Atty. Felix Racadio, presented the various programs and projects in the Poro Point Freeport Zone (PPFZ) to promote economic development particularly of Northern Luzon while ensuring the protection of the environment and natural resources. He also pointed out various accomplishments of the PPMC in transforming the PPFZ as a thriving center for tourism, commerce and trade, and investment. Meanwhile, Ms. Racquel Atawe and Ms. Marissa Gorospe of NEDA Regional 1 presented the socioeconomic situation in the region and status of priority projects as of December 31, 2018, respectively.

In the open forum, Mayor Eulogio Clarence Martin de Guzman raised the difficulty faced by the Local Government Units (LGUs) in applying for Special Economic Zones. He shared the initiative of LGU Bauang in setting aside a land parcel brought about by accretion. Secretary Pernia assured the local chief executive to raise the concern to PEZA and underscored the thrust of the government to ease doing business. In addition, Usec. Navarro advised Mayor de Guzman to seek assistance from the Regional Development Council (RDC) 1’s recently created Technical Working Group (TWG) on Ecozone development. On the declaration of the land mass formed from accretion as alienable and disposable, she suggested that the Mayor discuss the details with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) which is represented in the dialogue by Assistant Regional Director (ARD) Leduina Co
