finally after so many years. this also happened in SG with the introduction of the 4th telco player, TPG and the MVNO players (circles.life)..

cheaper telco good for everyone, except the existing players  Big Grin

3rd player likely to be the state-owned China Telecom..

Venture would be 60-40 partnership with local player (potentially Philippine Telegraph & Telephone Corp) due to ownership restriction in the country

Look forward to a better service at cheaper price!  Big Grin
