MANILA, Philippines — The National Telecommunications Commission will conduct on April 26 a public hearing on its draft rules governing value-added services offered by mobile operators and other private companies.
The commission has already deregulated Voice over IP or VoIP, allowing Internet service providers or ISPs to offer VoIP as a value-added service.
It is looking to issue similar rules governing "enhanced services" including messaging services (SMS, MMS, etc), email, gaming services and mobile content.
