IT company sees Zamboanguita boom with Internet

Not a few visitors to Negros Oriental are often surprised at getting reliable internet service even in areas “far” from Dumaguete, such as the popular beach resorts in Dauin and Zamboanguita.

The technology is made possible by a point-to-point wireless connection from a Dumaguete-based company called IT Qest.

With its motto “Here, there, everywhere–we connect you anywhere,” IT Qest promises to bring quality internet service anywhere the other internet providers can’t reach.

IT Qest CEO and Chairman Fred Dael says they usually provide anywhere from 386 kBps (Kilobits per second) to 1.5 MB/s, although they may soon provide a 6 or 12 MB/s line to a client based in Tanjay city.

To serve their clients, IT Qest gets lines from Globe, a company which merged with Islacom, which Dael once headed. “We’re negotiating with PLDT to be the equal provider in Tanjay so we could bring jobs to people in the outer fringes of Dumaguete City where we get our social impact,” Dael said.

Established only last June 2010, their advantage as a company, Dael says, is that “we know the operators so we can provide the service.”

Dael also looks forward to further improving internet connections for their clients in Zamboanguita after last week’s tapping of a fiber optic cable splice in Zamboanguita.

No less than Zamboanguita Mayor Kit Marc Adanza is excited over this development as it promises to boost business opportunities in his town. “We can now host call centers and banks may open ATMs here in our town!” he exclaims.

By January, IT Qest hopes to make a stronger presence in Siaton, 50 kilometers south of Dumaguete, where it already has some clients.
