To provide better TV viewing experience and enable efficient information dissemination in times of calamities, says Jorge V. Sarmiento, Undersecretary for Management and Operations of DICT.

The plan will also be carried out with the help from other government agencies. The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) will aid implementation and regulation, while the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will incentivise small scale broadcasters. Meanwhile, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will look into e-waste management, while the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) will assess the economic impact.
