NTC touts Dennis Uy’s 3rd telco bidding win as ‘most transparent’ in the world
The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has received praise for its livestreamed public bidding of the third telco franchise.
The bidding won by bilyonaryo Dennis Uy was touted as “one of the most transparent and smooth bidding process” in the world after it was streamed on Facebook live for public viewing.
“In March 2019, the Philippines’ bidding process was presented and applauded for its uniqueness in the Asia-Pacific Spectrum Management Conference of the International Telecoms Union in Kuala Lumpur,” Cordoba added.
NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Aris Cordoba had every reason to be proud of how the selection process turned which was capped by President Rodrigo Duterte personally turning over a permit to operate to the China Telecom-backed Mislatel. The consortium has announced that it would be branded as Dito Telecommunity as they duke it out with Smart and Globe for market share.
Next on NTC’s agenda is to see if Mislatel will follow through its promise to bring down the cost and improve data service.
