Globe is now the largest mobile operator in the Philippines
The Philippines has two major mobile operators in the country – Globe Telecom and Smart Communications, Inc. And in case you’re asking who’s the largest to date, the answer is Globe.
In a report published by Mobile World Live, Globe has finished 2016 with 66.6 million subscribers, surpassing Smart’s 62.1 million. From 32% market share in 2012, Globe now has 52% market share according to GSMA Intelligence.
According to Mobile World Live, Globe closed in on Smart in 2015 when it registered 12.2 million net additions, while Smart lost nearly 5 million mobile customers. Smart’s market share has also dropped since Q4 2015 from 61% to 48% by end of 2016. This prompted PLDT, which also reported a 20% decline in its year-on-year consolidated income amounting to Php21.7 billion from January to September 2016, to make changes in its leadership and management which it announced in November 2016.
