Telecommunications company from Japan and South Korea are also interested to invest in Philippines’ third telecom service provider, this was revealed by Senator Bam Aquino.
“Habang isinusulong natin noon ang Philippine Competition Act, nakatagpo tayo ng interes mula sa mga kumpanyang galing Japan at Korea na gustong pumasok sa ating industriya ng telco,” he said in a statement.
“Natutuwa tayo sa pagkilala ng Pangulo na kailangan nating pagandahin ang ating sektor ng telekomunikasyon sa pamamagitan ng kumpetisyon, subalit hindi tayo dapat malimita sa isang bansa lamang,” he added.
He also noted that Singapore, a smaller country compared to Philippines in terms of land area and population, has 6 telecom service provider.
“Dapat maging ganito rin kasigla ang kumpetisyon sa ating bansa,” he said.
“Kahit ang maliliit nating local cable operators ay nais magsamasama upang makipagkumpitensya sa malalaking Telcos,” he added. “Gawin nating madali para sa mga kumpanyang ito na makapasok sa merkado at tanggalin na ang red tape upang mapaganda ang serbisyo ng internet at bumaba ang presyo nito para sa mga Pilipino.”
