Philippine Internet Timeline

We celebrate today the 18th birthday of the Philippine Internet. Decided as well to post the various tidbits we gathered through the years to enrich our country's Internet history through this timeline.

Will be putting up presentation materials and exhibit soon to continuously celebrate the growth of the Philippine Internet in our country. Should you have additional information to share, don't hesitate to post in our comments section.

If your company has done a major milestone online, do contact me and send the info so I can check it out. Screenshots, presentation materials, video will greatly help too.

Thank you. Cheers to the Internet!

Will be updating this page continuously.
