The Manila Times has recently published an article about the deal between the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and electric cooperatives allowing the co-ops to become Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that apparently raised an alarm in the local cable industry.
From the article mentioned, FICTAP stood its ground with its expression of disapproval of the government's move to tap the National Electrification Administration (NEA) and the Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (Philreca) to expand the reach of broadband services to rural areas. FICTAP are committed and said that the whole cable industry is "up in arms against illegal and unfair partnership" in which might enable power co-ops to penetrate the telecommunications industry "despite their lack of franchises, authorities, and licenses."
