MANILA – The website of the country’s National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) appeared to be defaced by hackers from Anonymous Philippines on Sunday afternoon.

In the message posted on the website, the group said it was “sympathizing with our fellow Filipino netizens whose battle cries are the over promised, under delivered system of our internet service providers.”

“We, as a country, suffer on the bottom of the internet pyramid having one of the lowest internet speeds while paying the same amount, or even higher, compared to other countries; adding data capping to our 'unlimited' data plans sums up to our great burden as an avid follower of the internet - for studies and such.”

The group called on the NTC to act on this matter. They also called for fairness in the charging and delivery of Internet services.

The song “Upuan,” originally popularized by Gloc-9, is also playing on loop on the website.
