In a report by ABS-CBN, SpaceX, through its legal counsel Atty. Bien Marquez of Quisumbing Torres law firm, thanked the NTC for issuing Starlink’s VAS license 30 minutes after it has submitted its application.

This shows the government’s seriousness in addressing the connectivity needs of our countrymen in unserved and underserved areas. This will also prepare us in the event of natural disasters and calamities,” said Marquez.

On the other hand, the NTC said that the swift processing of its registration was meant to expedite the service’s immediate roll-out.
