Duterte wants 3rd telco to have free ride in Globe and Smart's cell towers - Trillanes

Former senator Antonio Trillanes IV is making noise after the delivery of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s fifth (5th) State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Trillanes believes that real motive of the President in asking the two giant telcos Globe and Smart by December to shape up is for the “Davao Group” to have its free entry in that industry.

“Marami pang pasakalye, Duterte just wants HIS 3rd Telco to get a free ride on the cell towers built by Smart and Globe. That’s why he is now shaking down MVP and Ayala. Gusto ng Davao group na laway lang ang kapital nila, may telco na sila,” said Trillanes on Twitter.

In his fifth State of the Nation Address, Duterte aired a fresh warning against the telecom duopoly: “Kindly improve your services before December. Tell us now if you cannot really improve on it, because I will work…The next two years will be spent improving the telecommunications of this country without you.”

“‘Yung Smart pati itong Globe ilang taon na ito, at ang sagot palagi sa akin, ‘The party cannot be reached’, eh saan pala pumunta ‘yung y**a na ‘yun?,” he added.
It might be remembered that the government auctioned a third telco franchise two years ago which DITO Telecommunity of Davao-based Dennis Uy and China Telecom was the lone, qualified bidder.

It was reported that DITO Telecommunity will start commercial operations by March 2021.
