PLDT and Bayantel have signed an agreement to interconnect their services in Negros, Albay and Leyte.
Under the agreement, Bayan landline subscribers in those provinces won't have to pay extra charges to call PLDT subscribers.
The two companies signed similar agreements last year, covering Cebu and Camarines Sur.
The agreement was signed on Thursday morning at the National Telecommunications Commission. The NTC mandates interconnection of telecommunications firms to encourage more infrastructure investments that would benefit consumers. ANC Dateline Philippines
