MANILA, Philippines – The race for the 3rd telecommunications player slot has gotten Filipinos looking forward to better internet and cellular services.

The government aims to name the 3rd player in November, but not without hiccups. 

An interested bidder, NOW Telecom, slapped charges against the National Telecommunications Commission over alleged money-making schemes which were supposedly not tackled during the public consultations.

Information and Communications Technology Acting Secretary Eliseo Rio Jr fired back, insinuating that the company does not have the means to finance such a huge undertaking and is merely delaying the bidding process.
