With what seems to be rooted in the issue of two of the country’s biggest telco’s “abuse of their dominant position,” rising company DITO Telecommunity is charging both Globe Telecom and PLDT–SMART complaints with the Philippine Competition Commission.
Per DITO Chief Administrative Officer Adel Tamano, during a briefing, he explains the issue as the case of DITO customer calls not pushing through to both Globe and SMART subscribers.
Tamano cites the concern as a violation of the policy set by the National Telecommunication Commission (NTC).
Further elaborating on his statement, the DITO exec cites an example, saying that out of 100 calls, only 30 would connect, for one unnamed telco. Another unannounced telco is even worse over claims that for every 100 calls, only 20 would connect.
Alongside the complaint, the DITO camp is asking both Globe and Smart to comply with the established government policy to maintain harmonious interoperability among telcos.
Per the Philippine Competition Commission, sent as a statement to ABS-CBN News, they confirm DITO’s two accounts of complaints against Globe and SMART over potential anti-competitive practices. Further, the agency claims that it has 10 days to make an official decision on whether to give the complaints their due course.
