Almeda said in a statement that its high-speed, low-latency broadband internet service would be a “game changer” for islands in Southeast Asia where broadband coverage is patchy.

In the Philippines, only 7 out of every 100 people have a fixed broadband subscription. It lags behind other countries in the region such as Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, according to the World Bank.

Data Lake Inc said Philippine customers will pay an initial payment of $599 per unit and $99 for a monthly connection service for download speeds of 200 Mbps.
