Philippines Telecommunications Q2 2020
We remain neutral on prospects in the Philippines' telecoms market. While the market is substantial and there is asignificantly large youth population, low-margin prepaid services continue to dominate, and operators are struggling to raise pricesowing to poor service quality. We do not forecast the launch of 5G services to provide a large boost to the mobile market in the shortterm, with the opportunity being more significant for the fixed-wireless broadband market. The new entrant, Dito Telecommunity,will likely focus on price to generate subscription growth, although a more realistic scenario is for consumers to take out anadditional SIM, further inflating the balance sheets of operators.
