DICT has given Mislatel Consortium to submit its five-year roll-out plan, performance security bond, and its approval from National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and Philippine Competition Commission (PCC). Once completed, NTC will then process the consortium’s Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to finally allow them operate in the country.

Mislatel, on the other hand, addressed that they can comply on the requirements.
