Mislatel is sole bidder for country’s 3rd major telco

Mindanao Islamic Telephone Company, Inc. (Mislatel),  a consortium made up of Udenna Corp., Chelsea Logistics Corp. and China Telecommunications Corp., is the sole bidder for the country’s third major telecommunications player after rivals Sear Telecom and PT&T were disqualified due to incomplete requirements.

The Sear Telecom group, consisting of LCS Group, TierOne Communications, Fujian Torch, Miller LTE, and SEATel, did not submit the required participation security while PT&T failed to submit the Certification of Technical Capability, according to the Selection Committee. Both groups, however, will file a Motion for Reconsideration.

Udenna is the holding company of Davao-based businessman Dennis Uy. Among its subsidiaries is Chelsea Logistics Corp.

Potential bidders NOW Corp. and Converge ICT Solutions have withdrawn from the bid and thus did not submit their respective proposals prior to the Opening and Evaluation of Selection Documents for New Major Player which began at 10am on Nov. 7, 2018 at the National Telecommunications Commission.

Mislatel’s First Submission Documents is currently being subjected to a detailed evaluation.
