Since December 1, 2011, telco companies (SUN/GLOBE/SMART) refuse to lower SMS rates by .20 centavos. This overcharging continues. NTC now requires these telco companies to refund their mobile subscribers.
As of , the refund already amounts to
*based on NTC estimate of P8M/day.
The above amount is the total of the following:
AMOUNT OF REQUIRED REFUND (TOTAL FOR ALL TELCOS)
FINE FOR NON-COMPLIANCE (TOTAL FOR ALL TELCOS)
These telco companies should refund every user with P load credit now
* 2013 current mobile subscribers, 106,562,338
Telcos should refund SMS now. NTC underestimating refund.
A quick look on telco annual reports will show that 6% of the total sms traffic must be refunded. Telcos owe us at least Php 18M per day and not just Php 8M
