    Hello, I am from Ubay, Bohol. I made my land available for the construction of the telecommunications tower of DITO Telecom, Land surveys had been made and a contract has still to be made. My question is: the rental arrangements was originally discussed with your representatives at something like a cash outlay of 9 million for 30 years but lately was drastically reduced to a 2.5 million rent for a 10 years contract. Why is that? And, who can I deal with on a more direct basis without dealing so much with middlemen who are making the most of the opportunities. A reply will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
