Under its Memorandum of Understanding, Smart will co-locate its cellular network facilities in towers jointly built by edotco and ISOC. The telco giant has also evaluated the list of available sites of edotco-ISOC, and has initially identified around 71 sites, where the two firms will build cell towers that must fit within Smart’s network roll-out plan.

“Smart fully supports a common tower policy which – consistent with constitutional standards – respects the right of a mobile network operator to select and contract with common tower providers that meet the operator’s commercial, technical, and financial qualifications and requirements,” Atty. Ray C. Espinosa, Senior Advisor to the President and CEO of Smart, noted.
