Telstra says there’s no guarantee it will operate in the Philippines

Those who are still waiting for Telstra to arrive in the Philippines might not want to hold their breaths as there’s still no guarantee that it will push through.


In a response to an inquiry on Twitter as to when Telstra will start their business in the Philippines, the Australian telecommunications company said that “there is no guarantee this will occur.”

Back in August 2015, Telstra confirmed that it is in discussions with San Miguel Corporation (SMC) about the joint venture, but clarified that “no agreements have been reached in relation to these matters and there is no certainty that this will occur.”

      Telstra was indeed interested in doing business in the philippines and was in discussions with SMC about the joint venture so i don’t understand why you see this a fairytale. But nevertheless, as long as internet services here in the philippines are damn poor and slow and expensive, we’d always hope for all sort of fairytale.

    Well to local companies, I hope they learned their local customers are in need of better services. There’s no good business when we have the worst connection in ASEAN.
