It looks like Grab is also a victim in all of this Uber-LTFRB drama, since users are starting to delete the Grab app, may be because of their dissatisfaction on the service and since they can now use Uber.

The Php 489.244 million that Uber paid for both the financial assistance and LTFRB fines, is just a drop in the $11.5 billion that Uber has raised from 14 rounds of venture capital and private equity investors.
