In a joint statement, Senators Franklin Drilon, Risa Hontiveros, Leila de Lima, Francis Pangilinan, and Antonio Trillanes IV said they don’t want the winning consortium to become another NBN-ZTE scandal.
Among the companies that have expressed their intent to bid as a third telco player are PT&T, Now Corporation, Converge ICT, TransPacific Broadband Group, and Easy Call Communications Philippines.
The bidder to be selected as the country’s new major player should not have any merger plans or joint venture agreements with either the dominant telco players, the PCC said.
In a draft memorandum released Thursday, June 28, the DICT said participants to the auction should have a minimum bid amount of P36.58 billion.
