Not too long ago, Globe telecom overtook Smart as the largest telco operator in the Philippines, as reported by MobileWorld Live. Globe crept its way to the top position and finished last year with 66.6M subscribers versus its long-term competitor, Smart with 62.1M subscribers. Globe’s win in 2016 was eventually “shrugged off” by PLDT, Smart’s parent company. In a report by Inquirer on January 13, 2017, MVP said, “It’s not as important as before. What is important is to take a look at the total telco revenue.” Tides have definitely turned 6 months later.

Rival Smart, the mobile unit of PLDT, moved back into the top spot with a 51 per cent share, according to GSMA Intelligence.” The drop,…
