During the ceremony in MalacaƱang, Duterte gave Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to Mislatel, which is headed by Davao businessman Dennis Uy.

The consortium is composed of Mindanao Islamic Telephone Co. (Mislatel), Udenna Corp., Chelsea Logistics and Infrastructure Holdings Corp., and China Telecom Corp. Ltd.

“The entry of this Mislatel Consortium – assuming that it complies with this commitment – is indeed a milestone in our efforts to provide fast, reliable, secure, and more affordable telecommunication services to the public,” Duterte addressed.
