Senator Mar Roxas today said the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) resolution lengthening the validity of pre-paid call load is too late and not enough.
This was the reaction of Roxas on the issuance recently of NTC Memorandum Circular No. 03-07-2009, which imposed longer expiration or validity periods for pre-paid loads.
The Liberal Party president said the Senate committee on trade and commerce which he heads will push for the per second metering system on cellular phone calls as practiced elsewhere.
Roxas said he would inquire on the status of the discussions of the technical working group (TWG) headed by NTC when his committee resumes hearing on the telcos issue on Wednesday morning.
The Senate trade and commerce committee is looking into service complaints against the country’s giant mobile phone providers Smart Communications Inc, Globe Telecoms and Digitel Mobile/Sun.
