COVID-19 has brought a huge impact and disturbance to the society in terms if its management and services. This is observed in most countries and Philippines is not an exemption. As various adjustments are presented to the different sectors of the Philippine society, the use of internet with the presence of online platforms as a means of continuing businesses, education, and other daily endeavors has been maximized. But with the current state of the internet connectivity of the users in the Philippines, it inhibits a smooth and stable online experience. Too, with the high rate of financial requirements, it limits the people to have access on such platforms. 

According to Surfshark, a VPN provider, with their study entitled Digital Quality of Life Index 2020, the Philippines on average was ranked 66 out of the 85 countries having a digital well being. On different areas, the Philippines was rank 82 on the most affordable internet connection and ranked 77 on the internet stability which means slow download speed and unstable connection. 

Given these points, it is only right to provide a better quality of internet connection, as it is one of the backbone of the Philippine society to continue its organization during this time of pandemic. Improved internet connectivity and quality, with at least 10-15 mbps in an affordable price will be a great help for the users and for those who cannot afford to access expensive internet connection. Furthermore, internet providers are encouraged to come up with an effective measure to prevent the frequency of loss of internet connection and improve their consumer approaches to ensure the convenience while using the internet.
