GLobe, PLDT Sign MOU On Lower Interconnect Costs

unnamed

Hooray! It’s finally official – both Globe and PLDT has finally signed the memorandum of agreement that lowers interconnect costs across the board for voice calls via mobile phones, land lines and vice-versa.

The interconnect costs for calls will drop by 40% to just 2.50 per minute across-the-board, starting on January 1, 2017. Right now costs for mobile to mobile calls and landline to mobile voice calls are Php 4.00 a minute, while mobile to landline voice calls are Php 3.00 a minute.

“We are supporting government’s efforts to bring down the cost of telecom services in the country. This agreement will translate in different ways to more affordable voice call rates for our subscribers,” PLDT Director and Head of Regulatory Affairs and Policy Office Ray C. Espinosa said.

  2. Kung kelan mas ginagamit na ang mga social media app and chat app saka nila ibababa ang rates sa call, mas madami matutuwa kung internet charges ang ibaba nyo, di nyo maloloko si duterte sa pabalat bunga nyo na baba sa presyo ng calls.

  3. yan.. kung hindi pa kayo TAKUTIN hindi kayo MAG-BABABA! kaya nyo naman pala! mga anak ng buwaya kayo hahahahahahahah real talk lang dre 🙂 next nyo na internet connection para bumango naman kayo.

  4. I had a very bad experience with globe-bayantel landline service. Delayed ang billing ng 2 months tas kung makaputol wagas. At pag nahbayad ka na ng DELAYED bills, hindi nila ibabalik agad ang service kasi meron pa daw 1 month na hindi pa bayad kahit hindi pa nila pinapadala ang billing statement. Sinigawan ko lang sa galit yung agent sa service center kasi ayaw nya i-reconnect kahit nakita na nya sa computer na hindi pa napapadala yung billing.
