Companies told to stop resisting VoIP deregulation

11 May 2005

The Philippines’ National Economic and Development Authority has urged operators in the country to stop opposing the deregulation of the country’s voice-over-IP (VoIP) market. The government said that the move will benefit overseas Filipino workers and foreign investors, who have complained about the high cost of phone services in the country. Telcos have complained that companies should not be allowed to provide voice services without a licence.
