It's called competition, stupid

"...Piltel accused Digitel of unilaterally imposing a new rate scheme without NTC approval. It asked the commission to issue a cease-and-desist order against Digitel's '24/7,' which it said constituted predatory pricing, and to impose sanctions on Digitel for violating due process..."

So Sun Cellular's flat fee of P250 a month for unlimited calls and text is unlawful? That's like saying all those Eat all you can buffets are threatening the restaurant industry.

Well, seems the idea of the day is "If you can't beat them, let the government do it".
