This update on the Philippines' telecoms market covers fixed broadband and mobile market trends and regulation. It includes service provider performance, multiplay services and bundling, MVNOs, and a TV/video market outlook.


  • The mobile market is currently dominated by the duopoly of Globe and PLDT (PLDT operates its mobile business under the brand Smart). A third telco, "Dito Telecommunity," backed by China Telecom, is expected to launch commercial services by mid-2020.
  • The fixed segment, which is also dominated by Globe and PLDT, has experienced a trend away from xDSL since Globe deployed massive MIMO LTE in 2017.
  • LTE market share reached 22.9% in the country at the end-2018, and the majority of subscriptions remain on 3G networks. At end-2024, Ovum expects LTE to account for 36.4% of subscriptions and 5G for 18.2%.
