Heavy fines at NTC

If you are a practitioner at the National Telecommunications Commission, you will notice that administrative fines against communications entities who commit lapses are quite heavy.
For instance, for a broadcast station to fail to timely seek and extension of its expired provisional authority to operate its broadcast facility, the fine is P200 per day.
Imagine the amount of fine if the failure to seek and extension reaches several months or years...
I am handling an administative case for a client, whose fine may go beyond the hundred of thousand peso mark.
Pretty expensive...
