The arrival of new entrant Dito, the introduction of 5G, pressure from the government to improve connectivity, and the Covid-19 pandemic have caused operators to redouble their efforts and up their investment in their networks, Opensignal said.
Mobile metrics firm Ookla said based on its latest Speedtest Intelligence report, PLDT-owned Smart Communications delivered the fastest median download speed at 33.39 Mbps for the first quarter of 2023.
Globe said it has logged over 1.5 million SIM registrations as of Dec. 28, while Smart Communications said it has received close to 400,000 successful applications. Dito Telecommunity, meanwhile, said subscribers who successfully register their SIM cards will receive 2GB bonus data.
The planned Asia Link Cable (ALC) will be approximately 6,000 kilometers in length, connecting Hong Kong and Singapore as its trunk, with branches into the Philippines, Brunei Darussalam and Hainan, China.
PLDT has set a Nov. 4 deadline for its local competitor Dito Telecommunity to pay its P430-million “unpaid contractual obligation”. Otherwise, the telco giant said it will suspend or terminate its services to the Dennis Uy-owned operator.
