The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) said its common tower initiative has started taking shape following last week’s signing of an agreement between a telecommunications operator and common tower providers.
Globe Telecom Inc. became the first mobile operator in the country to secure a deal with aspiring common tower providers after it signed Monday a tripartite agreement with ISOC Infrastructure Inc. of businessman Michael Cosiquien and Malaysia-based tower giant edotco Group Sdn. Bhd.
Information and Communications Technology Acting Secretary Eliseo Rio said the agreement is a key step in the government’s goal to improve the ICT infrastructure in the country.
“This feat shows that the common tower initiative is taking shape, and with the continued collaboration between the telco operators and the common tower provider pool, we are bound to experience improved telecommunication services in no time,” Rio said.
