Globe’s Stand on NTC’s order to Lower Down SMS Rate

Early this month, the telcos signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to formally reduce the interconnection charges on SMS by P0.20 per text in compliance with the NTC Memorandum Circular No.02-10-2011 issued October 24. Thus, it will lower down the text messaging cost to P0.80/text across all networks.

National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) had said that the cut in the interconnection charge for text messaging service was one of several policy initiatives enacted by the agency that would redound to the benefit of millions of consumers through lower and affordable telecommunications costs, better and quality service and new, innovative and consumer-friendly products.

Globe Telecom, being one of the largest telecom network in the Philippines providing messaging service to every Filipino released a statement regarding their stand on this matter.

Globe Statement

Globe supports the NTC initiative to lower SMS interconnection access rates to 15 centavos and has fully complied with the NTC Memorandum.

The lowering of domestic access charges on sms will allow Globe to offer more aggressive and competitive sms based unli, bulk and all network promos.

Right now, our customers are enjoying an average rate of close to 10 centavos per sms because of the inter and all network bulk unli offers, as well as our postpaid and consumable plan offerings.

The lower sms access rates will help provide greater benefits to our customers especially those who are currently using our unli services.
