Trolling PLDT, Globe, Smart and Sun!
And so the irony goes: PLDT – conqueror of Digitel/Sun which inevitable formed a very lopsided duopoly (virtually a monopoly given the Empires infrastructure and size), has accused Globe of fermenting an “… anti-competitive and anti-consumer telecommunications environment” with its planned takeover of BayanTel, a telco that barely registers a blip in the Telco Wars.

Ladies and germs – prepare for Smart and Globe to burn butt loads of cash for their respective iPhone 5s/5c launches this November 15!
