The telecommunication business in the Philippine is a regulated entity. All telecommunications and broadcast services and facilities in the Philippines is supervised and controlled by the National Telecommunications Commision (NTC) which adopts and promulgates such guidelines, rules, and regulations.
Philippines is one of the great telecom success stories in recent years, fueled by tremendous growth in mobile and text messaging services. The number of mobile subscribers has leapt five-fold since 2000 to 32.5 million, topping 41 percent penetration.
The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PSE: TEL, NYSE: PHI), commonly known as PLDT, is the largest telecommunications company in the Philippines. PLDT is also the largest company in the Philippines, ranked 1138th in the April 2009 update, and 1080th in the April 2010 update, of Forbes' Global 2000 list.
This remarkable growth is due both to innovative pre-paid pricing packages, and to the unparalleled adoption of short message service (SMS) text messaging as an alternative to traditional voice calls. Philippines mobile services providers Smart, the PLDT subsidiary, and Globe Telecom were among the first in the world to utilize mobile pre-paid calling plans. The result is wide household penetration of basic access services throughout even low income areas. As important, SMS has caught on with a fervor that is unrivaled anywhere in the world. Domestic text traffic is thought to outweigh that of voice by a factor of 10 to 1. Non-voice services account for approximately 40 percent of mobile carrier revenues.
The rapid rise in mobile communications has come at the expense of the fixed line network. Fixed line penetration is about 4 lines per hundred and the installed base is steadily eroding.
