Philippines issues co-location, cell tower sharing guidelines

Thursday 11 June 2020 | 10:49 CET | News
Philippines' Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has issued guidelines for cell tower sharing. The rules for the co-location and sharing of passive telecommunications tower infrastructure are based on the prevailing business model of domestic operators, which build and use their own cell sites for their mobile networks, Inquirer reports. The guidelines are also designed to encourage the construction of tens of thousands of new towers across the Philippines, where vast areas remain underserved or unserved.
