I'm probably the most DDS amongst the SSC staff but even I agree with this...the process was indeed a farce. And its not China Telecom in particular, I do feel this was favouring Dennis Uy more than anybody. I agree with Converge that this whole process is giving huge disadvantage to the local players, even those that are striving to offer us better services in whatever way they can.alam na. Sabi ko na nga ba e. Entire process to me is nothing more but a farce.
Given the sheer technobabble of bringing this third Telco, I betcha some bad apples are making it so complicated the president himself will never truly understand what has taken place. I am actually rooting for PT&T and Chavit Singson on their legal actions. This process has to be repeated and the rules changed so it does not favour one individual.
That said, I do not like Chavit Singson's proposal on the satellite based services because frankly, that technology is simply too unreliable. Just go on a cruise ship and see how *awesome* and *cheap* satellite based internet can be... :|
