The Bases Conversion and Development and Development Authority (BCDA) and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) recently entered into a landing party agreement with Facebook to establish a high speed internet infrastructure in the country.

The project, called Luzon Bypass Infrastructure, should deliver a faster, more affordable, and more accessible internet across the Philippines, according to the BCDA and DICT.

DICT OIC Eliseo Rio Jr. revealed that the agreement should give the country internet speeds of at least 2 terabits per second, which is almost equivalent to the combined capacity of telcos Globe and PLDT.

The project is expected to be completed by 2019.
