Pacquiao wants to collaborate with Elon Musk’s firms to improve Ph’s Internet, Transportation


Sen. Manny Pacquiao, a presidential candidate in the Philippines, and Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III met with SpaceX’s senior executive to discuss the use of low-orbit satellites to further boost the country’s internet connectivity.

SpaceX, entrepreneur Elon Musk’s aerospace company, deployed its Starlink satellites in 2021. These are low-orbit satellites that attempt to bring internet access to remote parts of the globe.

According to Pacquiao, such technology would be advantageous to Filipinos since it could provide affordable internet access.

He added that technology might boost online learning, e-government services, disaster relief and coordination, and keep OFWs and their families connected.

Pacquiao was invited to visit the United States and meet the main individuals behind SpaceX via a video chat meeting with SpaceX head of relations Rebecca Hunder.

Pacquiao is also interested in exploring other areas of collaboration with SpaceX’s sister companies, including Elon Musk’s Tesla, an electric vehicle and clean energy company, and The Boring Company, an infrastructural and tunnel construction services firm dedicated to finding new ways to solve traffic problems.

The presidential candidate is considering adopting Tesla batteries to aid in the upgrading of jeepneys, while The Boring Company may assist the country in attaining its subway system dreams.

He’s also open to working with SpaceX to build a spaceship launchpad in the country, which would place the country on the map of space research while simultaneously providing jobs for local engineers, scientists, and laborers.
