Trolling PLDT, Globe, Smart and Sun!
According to the NTC, no party has appealed their decision to allow the sale of Digitel, thus making the decision final.
NTC commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba:
“We will start by asking the parties, in particular PLDT, as to the status of their compliance with the conditions set out in our decision.”
As of January 20, PLDT owned 98% of Digitel, and now, a painful condition of the PLDT-Digitel deal has to be met:
Note that PLDT cannot participate in the public bidding which will be supervised by the NTC for other PTE’s (Public Telecommunications Entities).
PLDT has nine months to effect the orderly migration of CURE’s customers (the aforementioned, mythical Red Mobile subscribers) to Smart.
