Lower SMS cost = savings?

April 24, 2009 at 7:28 am 2 comments

In an Inquirer story (click full article here), Senator Bong Revilla Jr. has expressed his support for the proposal to reduce the cost of short messaging system or text from P1.00 to 50 cents. Revilla says that this measure is one way of helping the public especially during these tough times.

He also alleges that from the P1.00 cost, only 20 centavos are shouldered by telecommunication companies (like Globe, SMART and Sun) and the cost reduction wouldn’t affect their profits.

If this proposal passes into law, are the consumers really the winners? After all, the three telcos have been giving away unlimited texting to its subscribers. But others would say that any cost reduction would spell savings.

What do you think?
