The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) of Philippines has approved new rules regarding interconnection agreements between telecom carriers and Voice Over IP (VoIP) providers in the country.
Under the new rules, the Philippine telecommunications regulator will tackle the “easing of requirements for interconnection agreements” that VoIP firms are required to sign with telecom carriers before these VoIP providers can offer the service. Under the regulator's new set of rules, VoIP providers will only need to sign a single interconnection agreement with a telephone carrier. The proposals will also compel VoIP vendors to pay “routing” charges for calls passing through other telephone carriers with no existing interconnection deal with the VoIP firm, instead of paying additional interconnection fees to each telephone network.
