13 more firms express interest to build cell towers

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) said 13 more groups have signified their intention to register as independent tower companies (ITCs) to help telco firms build more cell sites across the country.

“This was a welcome improvement to the Department’s existing agreements with the 24 tower companies, which are mostly foreign-owned,” said DICT Secretary Gregorio Honasan II.

Honasan said the construction of cell towers is in support of President Duterte’s directives to fully address the Filipinos connectivity needs.

Duterte directed concerned agencies to expedite the process for application of permits to cell tower firms.
