The selection of the third telco has finally been concluded, with a consortium consisting of Mindanao Islamic Telephone Holding, China Telecom and a Filipino consortium winning the bid. We view that the new entrant, named Mislatel, will have a limited short-term impact as it has few existing assets, and must compete on price. Other operators have already spent most of 2018 piling investments into improving access networks and backhaul as they move to improve service quality, and we believe this, coupled with the new telcos's aggressive strategy will motivate uptake of advanced data services in the Philippines.
