A consumer network asked the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) on Wednesday to strike down a planned merger deal between True Corporation and Total Access Communication (Dtac).

The network said the merger move by the two telecom giants without NBTC permission was against Section 21 of the Telecommunications Business Act.

The network also claimed the deal would see “consumers losing service options while entrepreneurs would lose opportunities in telecommunication business operations”.

“Hence, we are submitting a letter asking the NBTC to strike down the merger deal and reveal to the public studies and analysis by the commission’s four subcommittees,” the network said.
