The NTC meeting with DILG officials addressed the persisting issue of telcos having to apply for numerous permits before they are allowed to build cellular sites in various municipalities and provinces. In a previous Senate hearing, the telcos claimed that an average of 25 LGU permits are needed for a single cellular site to be put up.
