Globe lawyers said it will continue with a new unlimited text promo despite National Telecommunications Commission’s order to suspend it. Excerpt:
MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) said its current directive suspending Globe Telecom’s new unlimited short messaging promo (SMS) or text promo stays until they resolve the matter during a rescheduled public hearing on February 20.
But Globe insisted it would continue its Unlitxt promo until the company comes to a settlement with consumer group TXTPower, which filed the complaint that led to the suspension, Globe lawyer Rodolfo Salalima told reporters a few minutes after a closed-door meeting with the regulatory agency.
“We had a conciliation meeting, which is like a pretrial hearing that hopes to lead to a settlement. Globe said they were seriously considering entertaining the TXTPower suggestions” but have asked NTC to give them time to talk to their management, said lawyer Lucio Espinoza, Jr., chief of staff of NTC chairman Abraham Abesamis, during an impromptu press briefing.
Here’s a video clip of Globe lawyer Rodolfo Salalima explaining.
