No more deadline for entry of 3rd telco player

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said the government will no longer impose a deadline on the entry of the third telecommunications player in the country. Instead, President Rodrigo Duterte wants the new telco player to be operational as soon as possible, Roque told reporters. Duterte earlier set a March deadline for the approval of a third telco player, with the aim of improving the internet and broadband services in the country. The deadline, however, has not been met. The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) earlier said the selection of a third telco carrier may have to wait until the end of June or early July.
