We now have a concrete word from San Miguel Corporation (SMC) that its planned broadband telecommunications network with Telstra may start operation by 2016.
“Now, we’re building a mobile broadband telecommunications network. We can switch on the network next year…”, SMC president Ramon S. Ang announced during the Forbes Global CEO Conference 2015 held in Manila.
He said that Telstra and San Miguel Corporation will have no problem in making this joint venture come true since both companies have the money and resources.
Furthermore, the business tycoon promises that the new telco will be superior among the current telcos in the country. That refers to Smart and Globe.
SMC already has experience with putting up a telecommunications network while Telstra is the largest telco in Australia. The latter also has a partnership with Ericson’s 4G LTE network.
