Heeding the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to fast track the entry of a new major player in the Philippine telecommunication market, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has released the general policy guidelines for the National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) to follow in the selection process of the applicants.

In Memorandum No.001, Series of 2018, the DICT sets the minimum qualifications for the applicants. The NTC, following this, will further develop the selection process in Memorandum Circular containing the Terms of Reference for the selection and the assignment of radio frequencies for the new major player in the Philippines telecommunications market not later than February 19, 2018.
