He sounds like to go to man to get things working right! I might buy a place there myself. I absolutely love the people there, I have never meet anyone there I didn't like and the women are so damn beautiful! I want to feed those starving kids too. I hiked in the heat 5 to 10 miles a day feeding them, well all that I could, just with me doing this alone I could only help a few dozen a day.

Just be careful doing things like that as a foreigner is not permitted alone with children and some have found themselves on the wrong side of the law or worse.

I was giving food out to homeless kids with a local gf. I then went to the SOS to learn how to open an orphanage, then being sent to local gov. There were way to many laws sheltering kids, so we followed the presidents plan of making a food bank to feed, I am also trying to make a company there 100% employed by Filipinos.

Internet is such a headache in the Ph. I work while there, and the first thing on the top of my list is fiber to the unit. Of course, that means I have to spend most of my trip in parts of Manila or Cebu where that's available. My next trip is out in the Mindanao province, not exactly the best location for a reliable connection. 

My provincial part of Mindanao has PLDT Fiber available. My neighbour has it, we are outside Marbel, where will you be?

That's near Surigao yes? I'm right down the other end.

Yeah south of there along the E coast.

The Philippines uses different frequencies (bands) for data than the USA. So unless you have an international phone with those Philippine bands or buy a smart phone in the  Philippines you will get really slow data rates.
