President Rodrigo Duterte has once again threatened telecommunication giants PLDT/Smart and Globe to face foreign competition in the country, should their services remained unimproved.

Duterte in a speech in Davao said he is planning to have a mobile hotline where Filipinos can text their complaints about corruption in government services.

He said PLDT chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, along with the Ayalas who own the majority stock in Globe, could contribute to the number.

“Ito ngayon I’ll open a number… Mag-contribute si Pangilinan pati si Ayala ng numero ko, tutal they are… maraming pera sila dito. Wala kayong kumpetensiya. Mag-text ako, maghintay ako ng reply. Matulog na muna ako kinabukasan ko pa mabasa. Tinitiis ko lang ‘yan,” Duterte said.

He said he will bring Chinese competition if telco's don't improve their services.

“If you do not do it right, you wait, I’m going to China. I’ll open up everything for competition. Buksan ko na lang lahat,” he said.

Duterte issued the threat since his campaign in May.

"For the communications guys, iyung internet connectivity, you improve the service or I will open the Philippines to competition. Pasok lahat. Then it will bring down [the price] and increase efficiency,” Duterte said on May 21.
