Trolling PLDT, Globe, Smart and Sun!
The NTC ordered Globe and Smart/Sun to submit all SMS logs of subs who have been charged P1.00/SMS send starting from December of last year… And they have 15 days to comply. Dennis Babaran, NTC Legal Department Director: “The documents are very important before we make any decisions on the issue, so we can proceed [...]
It’s depressing – We may never see the day when regular SMS rates get reduced to 80 cents. The NTC has just concluded its hearing on the 20 centavo SMS rate reduction order which Globe and Smart/Sun did not comply with. The result: nothing was resolved. More bad news: the NTC thinks that the implementation [...]
That’s a lot of mooolah! Globe took on a ten-year, USD90M loan with China Banking Corporation to partly finance its 2012 network modernization and IT transformation program.

Gamaliel Cordoba, NTC Commissioner: “We are waiting for our legal department to furnish us its recommendation. We will treat it like any other case… Right now, our legal department is studying [...]

The study, which tracks the trends and Internet habits of Filipinos, covered a total of 1,500 respondents living in 22 major cities in the [...]

It’s all about supply and demand they say. Troll: Supply and demand. Curious that Globe is using this angle since supply and demand is highly considered [...]
Some dumb ideas are funny, but some baffle the mind. Major telcos killed their signal in certain areas of Manila as government operatives conducted raids that yielded… no arrests. Apparently there was an intel report stating that terrorists plan to detonate a bomb during the Black Nazarene Procession. Lets run that again, just to be [...]
