San Miguel to enter PH telecoms market even without Telstra

Looks like there’s still hope for a third player in the telecommunications market in the Philippines as San Miguel has expressed that it will still launch its own high speed Internet service even without a partner.

In an interview with Inquirer, San Miguel Corp. (SMC) President Ramon S. Ang said that the company could launch its LTE high speed Internet service even without a partner. “Nobody can stop this anymore. When we launch, we expect to lure subscribers right away with better quality and cheaper Internet.” Ang said.

Ang also revealed that the company is already testing its service and would roll out within this year. “We won’t switch it on until it’s perfect.”

SMC and Telstra are in discussions concerning the joint telecoms venture since last year but no agreements have been reached so far. The Australian telco also expressed that there’s no guarantee that the venture will push through.

Wi-Tribe failed because they only used WiMax, even Globe’s implementation of WiMax failed and eventually switched to LTE.

In San Pablo, there is a new cell tower being put up in close proximity to globe, smart, and sun towers. Word has it that the tower is for BellTel (a telco company under SMC)

If it has Sony Ericsson equipment then it’s most probably from SMC since they won’t use Huawei for their wireless shiz that will utilize their 700mhz band advantage.

Well considering ViSat is already a ticking timebomb, they better make it be worth it.

Data Seller? Mas Mabuti kung Speed ang Papabayaran nila, pero kung Date Parin ang Ibebenta nila, Useless yan ibig sabihin sa PLDT parin ang daan nang peering nian, Pagdating kay PLDT mag peering na naman sa Singapore.pero kung meron silang sariling Infra “BackBone” na direct Peering im sure mura nga ang Singil nila at mabilis ang “Speed” Connection not “Data” Connection…

I don’t have any info to back this, but isn’t wireless data cheaper than wired? They have to setup cell towers for wireless, but they need a few hundred miles of fiber wiring to setup wired connections.
