/ 05:37 PM August 26, 2022

The Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) said on Friday it found reasonable grounds to open a preliminary inquiry into the  complaints filed by third major telco player DITO Telecommunity Corp. against Globe Telecom and Smart Communications.

“The PCC Enforcement Office will look into the allegations in the complaints for possible violations of Section 15 of the Philippine Competition Act (PCA) pertaining to abuse of dominance,” the anti-trust body said in a statement, adding it would also study other possible violations that might have been committed.

The PCC said it would coordinate and consult with the National Telecommunications Commission and other relevant government agencies on the matter.

“The PCC takes complaints of anti-competitive behavior very seriously,” it said, reminding telecommunication industry players and other businesses of their responsibilities to engage in fair competition.
