Telstra to enter PH
Most of you might not be aware that here in the Philippines, we are on the second to the bottom place when it comes to the ranking of the fastest internet in Asia. If you'll be comparing the prices of internet connections here and in other countries, you'll be surprised how expensive our internet is. Below are some of the countries which includes their rankings.
Top 5 (Fastest)
1. Singapore 122.43 Mbps
2. Hongkong 102.96 Mbps
3. Japan 82.12 Mbps
4. South Korea 59.77 Mbps
5. Macau 50.66 Mbps
Bottom 5 (Slowest)
18. Indonesia 6.68 Mbps
19. Myanmar 6.54 Mbps
20. Pakistan 4.00 Mbps
21. Philippines 3.64 Mbps
22. Afghanistan 2.53 Mbps
From the said ranking, we could already say that our current service providers need to provide better internet / service in order for the Philippines to climb up the rank.
As an IT professional, I know how important it is to have a fast and stable connection especially for offices.... If you have an internet connection at home, I am pretty sure that you have experienced slow internet connection or even hours or days of having no connection at all. For offices here in the Philippines, most of them subscribe to leased line services to have a better and more stable internet.
If ever that Telstra would really enter the country, existing Telco's in the country would definitely feel Telstra's presence and would really need to cope up with the services and packages that Telstra could offer.
To give you additional details, it is San Miguel Corporation who is currently negotiating with Telstra to enter the Philippines. Just imagine how fast the internet would be if ever that the deal with them would be closed.
I know that most of us would love Telstra to enter the country but as of the moment, we cannot do anything about it and will just have to wait for their announcement. Someone also created an article stating that Telstra will be giving out sim cards that could be used for internet but Telstra denied this and announced that they are still studying the Philippine market and would announce it once they would really be providing their services for the Philippines.
