The National Broadband Plan did not meet any opposition from the Philippine Competition Commission or PCC. However, the government agency is recommending some measures to make it more effective. One of the measures that the Philippine Competition Commission is recommending with regards to the National Broadband Plan or NBP is to remove government regulations that restrict healthy competition in the industry. The Dept. of Information and Communications Technology or DICT is spearheading the formulation and implementation of the NBP which aims to upgrade the quality of broadband services in the Philippines. It also aims to widen the reach and link all government agencies, public institutions and local government units through the internet. The objective of the National Broadband Plan is to ensure that all Filipinos will reap the benefits of broadband, address challenges in the sector and accelerate broadband deployment. To achieve these goals, the PCC recommends that the regulators such as the National Telecommunications Commission be given more teeth to enforce their mandates, review the competition landscape in the telco sector and resolve interconnection issues in the broadband market. Among the recommendation is the amendment of Republic Act 7925 that would allow NTC to impose higher penalties on telco players found violating the country’s laws and regulations. The PCC noted that RA 7925 passed in 1995 has no penal provisions. In the absence of this, the NTC applies the penalties provided under the outdated Public Services Act of 1936 which sets the fines at not more than P200.00 per day until the violation is corrected. In implementing the Philippine Competition Act, the anti-trust body prevents firms from exploiting consumers and excluding competitors. The Philippine Competition Commission establishes rules to safeguard the competitive process and ensure that competition is maintained. The body also stressed that there is a need to remove regulations that create barriers to competition.. The PCC identified some major types of government intervention that restrict competition. These are those that reinforce market dominance or limit the entry of new players and those that are conducive to collusion or that increase costs to compete in the market.
