WiFi to be banned in the Phillipines?

The Phillipines' spectrum policy doesn't allow WiFi.

AS far as the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) was concerned, commercial wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) services, and even Bluetooth use, was still "illegal" in certain regions in the Philippines, including Metro Manila, an official of the regulatory body said over the weekend.

Edgardo Cabarios, director of the common carrier department of the NTC said that the body was still drafting guidelines to regulate commercial Wi-Fi activities and boost their deployment and development in the country.

"I think (commercial Wi-Fi) services have to stop because it is against the law," he said.
