Court of Appeals junks SMS refund order to customers

• Ntc Wepbage 1 • Court Of Appeals Junks Sms Refund Order To Customers

In 2014, Smart, Sun and PLDT approached the Court of Appeals to stop the Php7 billion refund ordered by the NTC and reduce the rate of text messages to Php0.80.

In June 27, the CA has announced its ruling and stated that the NTC did not have legal basis and did not follow due process. It further adds that a reduced inter-connection charges between telcos do not automatically mean cost of SMS should also go down.

The Court of Appeals also struck down the order to issue a refund to customers.

NTC made the order to reduce SMS charges and issue a refund back in November 20, 2012 and May 7, 2014. The NTC is expected to file a motion for reconsideration.

Telcom doesnt want to change, then let the telcom business open for international companies instead of the same monopoly bullshit pldt-smart-globe family.

Dapat nga free na yang text and call services na yan eh, wala na tayo sa good old Nokia days na mahal pa ang GSM service, it’s very cheap nowadays. Sa T-Mobile America nga, all postpaid plans nila comes with unlimited voice, text and HSPA+ data (yes unli data) ang pinaka binabayaran lang nila is yung data volume for 4G/LTE which are not unlimited. Eh dito, kung, tutuusin mas may edge pa yung lower data plan holder sa Smart (Surf Plus Plan 799 and below), may unli call and text sila samantalang yung higher tier ng Surf Plus (999 and above) ay consumable all and text lang ang meron. Anong kalokohan yun? Kung sino pa yung premium mag bayad, sila pa yung may consumable sa call and text, bakit di nalang din ginawang unlimited? Palibahasa yung mga telco dito ang hilig mambola ng kapwa Pilipino, yung ibang Pilipino naman tanggap lang ng tanggap at hindi marunong mag reklamo. Sana matauhan na tayong mga Pilipino, huwag lang iasa sa gobyerno, tulungan din natin ang gobyerno by voicing your own opinion on the matter.

Correction to myself: Postpaid and Prepaid ng T-Mobile US are both unli talk and text, not just postpaid.
