Globe Telecom backs RA 11469 extension

Globe Telecom Inc. said it is supporting moves to extend the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act to accelerate the construction of more cell sites all over the country.

The telecom firm said the  proposed extension of Republic Act No. 11469 would help speed up the construction of information and communications technology infrastructure such as cell sites.

Bayanihan Act is seen to foster the approval of permits and clearances from local government units in as short as seven days as mandated by the Ease of Doing Business and the Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018. 

“For years, our network expansion plans have been hampered by bureaucracy among LGUs and homeowners associations.  This has been the main reason why  building cell sites even before the COVID-19 crisis has been very difficult and slow,” said Froilan Castelo, general counsel of Globe.
