RE: SingTel
Optus already have 4G spectrum...

A price war will probably not materialize with TPG already paying a relatively high price for the spectrum.

RE: SingTel
A $130 Billion Manager Sells Singtel as Competition Ramps Up

April 28, 2017, 5:00 AM GMT+8 Updated on April 28, 2017, 12:57 PM GMT+8

Rising competition in Singapore Telecommunications Ltd.’s key markets across Asia has prompted one of the world’s biggest independent money managers to sell the stock.

Henderson Global Investors, which oversees about $130 billion globally, sold its Singtel holdings in Asia-based portfolios last month, said Sat Duhra, who manages Asian dividend-focused investments for Henderson. Singtel’s key markets are growing more crowded as Australian carrier TPG Telecom Ltd. steps up its regional expansion, Duhra said.

Singtel shares fell as much as 1.1% in Singapore.

“If you look at Singtel, Singapore’s going to have more competition, Australia’s going to have more competition, India’s going to have more competition,” Duhra said in an interview. “It’s going to face some short-term pressure.”

Singtel not immune to competition, as Indian operations hit earnings

By: Ko Ding Wei

SINGAPORE (May 18): Singapore Telecommunications is feeling the heat from rising competition in the telecoms market.

The country’s largest telco reported a 2% rise in earnings for 4Q17 ended March, to $963 million. Operating revenue grew 5% to $4.3 billion.

But pre-tax earnings from its regional associates fell 6% in the quarter, to $658 million. The decline was mainly driven by India-listed associate Bharti Airtel, in which Singtel has a 36.5% stake.

Airtel has operations in 17 countries across Asia and Africa. Although the company’s operating performance in Africa improved, its Indian operations have been impacted by the entry of a new operator in India that has sparked a price war by offering free voice and data. As a result, Airtel’s pre-tax earnings contributions to Singtel fell 51% to $91 million.

Excluding Airtel, pre-tax earnings from Singtel’s regional associates increased 10% to $568 million. This was driven mainly by robust growth in the Indonesian market for voice, data and digital services. Singtel owns 35% of Indonesian mobile network operator (MNO) Telkomsel.

RE: SingTel
Singtel is top pick in Singapore telco space.

TPG in Australia has earmarked 600m for building out the mobile network which is very little (Australia is big). Maybe they ultimately want to merge with Vodafone... Not an imminent threat. Optus CEO in June presentation talked of an encouraging outlook.
