Pinoy netizens fall for ‘No Internet Connection During APEC Summit’ satire article

A satirical piece titled Filipinos Will Have No Internet Connection During APEC Summit in Manila, an article by hoax news site Adobo Chronicles has fooled numerous gullible Filipino netizens.

The hoax news report stated that the telecommunications and digital service provider Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is planning to cut the Internet connection of Filipino subscribers during the summit to boost the connectivities at different Metro Manila venues of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings. In addition, the report revealed that PLDT would give subscribers a small rebate on their next bill.


Many Pinoys easily fell prey and quickly spread the false information from the satire news site.

Last week, PLDT revealed that it had installed additional Internet connection facilities at several APEC venues this month. They even put up to 8.5 Gbps of Internet and voice connectivity in host hotels as well as major conference venues. PLDT has provided the Philippine International Convention Center with 3Gbps of fiber connectivity and 100 units of carrier-grade access points. Moreover, the company has boosted the WiFi services in hotels in Makati where most delegates are staying.
