Imee Marcos urges DICT to lower cost per text to 1 centavo


Senator Imee Marcos wants the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to lower the price ceiling for text messages.

The Ilocano politiko has filed Senate Resolution Number 6, which is “strongly urging” DICT to set one-centavo price ceiling on the “exorbitant” cost of text messages.

“We must balance the business interests of our telco providers and make sure that they abide by the global trend toward cheaper and faster services to the public,” said Marcos.

“Cheaper text messages and a strict price ceiling are long overdue,” she added.
