(UPDATED) The revised draft Terms of Reference (ToR), as updated by the National Telecommunications Commission, for the selection of New Major Player in the Philippine telecommunications industry using auction as mode of selection is hereby posted for purposes of the market study/public consultation to be held next week.

Please note that the minimum bid amount is pegged from the Spectrum User Fees (SUFs) being paid by existing telecommunications companies and does not yet consider the inputs/recommendations of experts from International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and best practices from other countries, and hence, is in no way final. Further, while there is a minimum bid amount, in this mode of selection, there will be no cap on the bid amount as the participant who submits the highest bid shall be selected as the New Major Player.

The previous ToR published on 26 June 2018 used the Highest Committed Level of Service (HCLoS) formula.
