Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) recently announced that it welcomes the opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to fostering healthy competition in the telco sector before the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC). The announcement comes after a reported complaint from a certain local telco about abusing market dominance in interconnection agreements.
Smart clarifies that it takes its duty to interconnect with other telcos seriously. It also mentions that “the integrity of the country’s entire telco network infrastructure depends on all three telco players taking the necessary measures to protect their respective facilities and networks from being exploited by criminal elements and activities.”
Additionally, it mentions that its dealings with its competitors have always been animated by the spirit of fair play and good faith.

We’ll have to wait and see where this goes and how the PCC will go about things.
