India eyeing to enter PH Telco space

We’ve already known since last year that a third telco player is entering the Philippines. The President himself is ordering this entry in order to break the last standing duopoly of PLDT and Globe. Just last week we’ve learned that there are quite a few more companies interested in partnering with the third player. Today, during an event in Malacañang, it was revealed that India has also expressed interest in entering the Philippine Telco space.

The Federation of Indian Chambers and Commerce Phils. Inc. held an event today in Malacañang. This is where India expressed their interest to the President himself. The deadline for DICT to select a third player is in March, so we’re only about a week away from that decision.

    maganda sana kung from korea telco pinili ni duterte, china or india napaka layo din sa top list. and of course alam naman natin may teritorial despute tayo with china, yung privacy ng pilipinas binibigay na sa china.

    e kung pipili lang naman ng new player, why not choose the best.

    baka abusohin din tayo ng intsik lalo na pinili ni duterte, d maka angal kung sakali may problema.

    tingin ko mahihirapan magkaroon ng third telco unless bibigyan ng incentives ng gobyerno (like reduced tax rate, atbp). kung Telstra nga umatras kahit papartner na sa San Miguel eh…ibig sabihin nun hindi maganda kinalabasan ng feasibility study nila at gaano nila kabilis mababawi ang investment.
