Telcos Can No Longer Build Own Cell Site, Common Towers Eyed

Telecommunication Companies can no longer build their own websites because the government is eyeing for a shared tower.

Ramon “RJ” Jacinto, the presidential adviser on economic affairs, said the construction of cell sites will be delegated to private firms so the entry of a third player in the industry will be easy.

Jacinto noted that companies can keep their existing cell sites but will also have the options to sell them. The government can also invest in such department.

Jacinto said this proposal was approved by the Cabinet and the guidelines would be out in February.

President Rodrigo Duterte vowed the entrance of third party in the communications department to provide competition so companies will provide the best service for the Filipinos. The third party role was first offered to China Telecom. However, it was clarified that it’s open to all foreign players.
