Capital investments were elevated in the second quarter of 2018 as operators piled over USD600mn into improving access networks as they prepare for the possible entrance of a third operator, which will erode their market share. Deep pockets and consistent regulatory support will be key to ensuring that PLDT and Globe do not manoeuvre to keep the new entrant out, as it did with San Miguel in 2015.
