The ICT sector of the Philippines is witnessing changes owing to government support and heightened competition. The COVID-19 pandemic which led to a surge in demand for data, exposed the inadequacies in the digital infrastructure (inadequate coverage, low speed and quality and high costs) which has been attributed to the long standing duopoly and restrictive government policies. In 2019, the number of cell towers in the country was less than 20,000, while Vietnam had 70,000 and Indonesia 90,000 towers. The government has been introducing competition-enhancing reforms, pushing companies to improve their digital infrastructure. The broadcasting subsector witnessed a severe setback in 2020, as the largest television network, ABS-CBN, was taken off-air, reducing competition and shattering investor confidence.
