- Globe Telecom has started to lower their interconnection rates
- This was in compliance with NTC’s memorandum circular
- The changes have been effective since September 1, 2018
It has been reported that Globe Telecom has lowered their interconnection rates for SMS from P0.15 to P0.05 per text message and from P2.50 to P0.50 per minute for voice calls.
KAMI has learned from CNN Philippines that Globe Telecom changed their rates in compliance with the directive from National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
The changes have been effective since September 1, 2018.
According to Globe general counsel Froilan Castelo, “The new interconnection rates will lead to a more robust and competitive industry that will further benefit the public,” as reported by ABS-CBN News.
The memorandum circular of NTC was published last July 2018.
In addition, the government is still searching for a possible third telecommunications company for the country. In a televised interview of President Duterte with Atty. Salvador Panelo, he assured the Filipinos that he will not be getting the lowest bidder, instead, he will be choosing the “best” telco company to serve the Filipinos better.
