In the report “Philippines telecom country profile”, it reveals that there were an estimated 3.2 million fixed subscribers at the end of September 2007 in the Philippines, representing a decline of 1.2% over the first nine months of the year. Fixed subscriber growth is forecasted to decrease further by an average of -0.9% over the next 5 years to reach 3.1 million at the end of 2011.
Perhaps no other segment has exhibited the dynamism that the Philippines’ economy had shown than the mobile telephone sector with mobile subscribers reaching 51.1 million at the end of September 2007, connecting more than half the total population and representing 94.0% of all telephone lines in the Philippines.
With a penetration rate of 57.6%, there is still considerable potential in this sector over the next 5 years, as the number of mobile subscribers is forecasted to grow by an average of 17.3% to reach 93.5 million at the end of 2011.
“The data services segment is also growing, now even more rapidly than mobile services, and is seen as the future source of revenue growth for telecom companies in the Philippines” Hot Telecom’s president Isabelle Paradis said.
This 36-page report, which includes 18 detailed exhibits and tables on the Philippines’ telecom market, confirms that the country’s broadband services are lagging well behind most Asian countries with a penetration rate of 0.8% at the end of September 2007, representing 28.3% of all Internet connections. The number of subscribers is however growing rapidly and broadband connections are forecasted to more than quadruple over the next 5 years to reach 3.2 million at the end of 2011. At the time, broadband should represent 84.6% of all Internet customers in the country.
The country’s Internet market is well behind neighbouring Asian countries with a penetration rate of 2.7% at the end of September 2007. The next years’ average growth rate is nevertheless forecasted to reach 13.7%, brining the number of Internet subscribers from 2.4 million to 3.8 million at the end of 2011.
