The Philippines’s telecommunications industry has been dominated by the PLDT-Globe duopoly over the last two decades. Recent reforms and the launch of a third mobile operator will bring competition and innovation to the sector. Telecommunications infrastructure investments have more than tripled with the arrival of DITO Telecommunity and Converge ICT to the scene.

The report forecasts that mobile subscriptions will continue to grow in the 2022-27 period and fixed broadband subscribers will continue to grow stronger and increase household penetration over the same period. Expanded coverage, greater affordability, service improvements, increased data usage and smartphone penetration are the main drivers of growth in the telecoms sector. The country continues to expand its fibre-optic network and 4G coverage, backed by strong investment in capital expenditure.

Investment in the telecoms sector grew to its highest in 2021 with the new mobile market entrant DITO Telecommunity launching that year. The publisher expects the overall telecoms market to grow strongly through to 2027 after a marked slow down in 2016 and 2017 due to legacy voice and SMS revenue pressure partially offset by mobile data growth.

Mobile Subscribers and Revenue

The report forecasts strong growth in subscribers in 2022 across the mobile and fixed broadband segments. The analyst expects that the number of mobile and broadband subscribers will continue to rise steadily to 2027. Mobile network operators are facing competitive pressure with the market shifting to unlimited voice and text and data allowance increasingly becoming the sole offering differentiator. The publisher benchmarked mobile data pricing across 8 countries in the Asia Pacific region and found that the Philippines is lagging behind in terms of data download but expects the country to catch up as 4G coverage is accelerating and smartphone penetration is increasing especially in regional areas.

According to the benchmark study of mobile data pricing, India has the lowest rate per GB at just a few cents per GB, while Australia and China had the biggest cost reduction per GB mostly due to increased data allowance in plans while Singapore remains expensive. The Philippines ‘ pricing is on par with Thailand when benchmarked against neighbouring countries.
