I bought a 10 mbps DSL Internet. Though, there was a catch that I've overlooked – this is only within Philippines. The connection with other continents is pretty poor, download speed is roughly 500 kbps.

What if I would purchase a dedicated server somewhere in Philippines, setup VPN on it and this way get a speedy connection with the rest of the world. Is that possible or am I overlooking something?

That would work, although you'd need to take a careful look at the bandwidth and costs of the dedicated server to avoid the same problem. The underlying constraint is probably the international link to the Philippines being maxed out.

and the dedicated server would need to be cheaper than upgrading the DSL –  Journeyman Geek Jun 15 '12 at 8:49
