THE NATIONAL Telecommunications Commission (NTC) Davao Region office is launching a crackdown on dealers of unlicensed communications equipment, including cellular phones. Nelson T. Cañete, NTC regional director, said there have been increasing reports on the proliferation of illegal telecommunications products being sold both in physical stores and online shops. “We need to step up our campaign not only to ensure that those who pay the correct taxes profit from being legitimate, but also to ensure that the products are of qualities that pass standards,” Mr. Canete said in a media forum. The NTC official also urged consumers, especially with the Christmas shopping period at hand, to buy from legitimate stores and dealers. — Carmelito Q. Francisco
