The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with MGS Construction Inc., bringing the number of interested common tower providers in the country to eight.
MGS Construction is the latest entrant to the growing pool of potential common telco tower builders which have inked an MOU with the DICT.
The deal signed with MGS Construction is similar to the previously signed MOUs by DICT which indicates that the agency is considering the capability of the company as a common tower provider.
The firm must first secure an agreement with at least one telecommunications operator in the country for the use of the common towers that it will build.
Should they secure such deals with operators, the DICT will then sign a memorandum of agreement with them wherein the government agency will commit to facilitate and extend full assistance to the companies in complying with legal, regulatory and administrative requirements for their common tower rollout plan.
