Philippines Telecom, Mobile, Broadband & Digital Media Markets Analysed in New BuddeComm Report Available at

01 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Currently, the broadband market in Philippines demonstrates remarkable growth. Meanwhile, the country’s telecom industry is spurred by huge investments; however, this domestic market continues to come short of its full potential. The number of mobile subscribers in the Philippines witnessed moderate growth over the previous 5 years with a stable easing of growth owing to a maturing market. The domestic operators have started to make emphasis on value-added services, for instance, they started 4G/LTE network rollouts.

The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) remains the leading fixed-line provider in the country despite intensive competition from new mobile operators and carriers. Meanwhile, the Globe Telecom and Smart Communications compete vigorously for the dominant position in the mobile market in the Philippines.

Broadband-based services accounted for over 80% of all Internet connections in the Philippines. However, broadband subscription penetration rate (as a proportion of the local population) is still only nearly 11%. Nevertheless, after a long period of sluggish growth, the domestic broadband market has recently begun to flourish. The national broadband users have at their disposal a number of high-speed Internet access options, for example, WiMAX, DSL, cable modem, FWA and mobile data services.
