About this report

Executive summary

Fibre will thrive in emerging Asia–Pacific, but the optimal price-positioning of such services is not trivial

Triple-play bundles will work well for incumbents, but simpler, stripped-down single or double plays – and quadruple plays – work for other players




Fibre-based solo or double plays can help alternative operators become effective challengers and provide a route to upselling more services later


Favourable market conditions are vital for a solo or double-play strategy, while bundling OTT services can fill the gaps in content services

A solo or double-play approach can disrupt a high-cost fixed market, but operators will need to bundle media content to gain mass-market appeal



Combining fibre and triple-play marketing messages and tiers can work effectively, but this approach requires a differentiated TV service


TV is at the core of any triple-play approach and should be a credible service on its own to gain customers’ trust

Leading with triple-play can be a game-changing strategy when conditions are favourable and operators devote appropriate resources



Fixed–mobile bundles can be used to provide the financial incentive to convince customers to upgrade to fibre


Fixed–mobile bundles can help motivate consumers to upgrade their service tier

Fixed–mobile bundling can stimulate growth and reshape market dynamics for an operator, but requires discounts that not all operators can apply



Case study: China Telecom


Case study: Maxis

Case study: Telkom Indonesia

Case study: True Online


Case study: Globe Telecom

China: China Telecom offers most competitive quad-play bundles, while China Mobile focuses on cheap entry-level fixed broadband plans 


Indonesia: Telkom Indonesia’s high-speed triple-play bundles are priced lower than other players’ equivalent-speed single or double play bundles 

India: Low-cost double-play tiers are available in some cities; lack of fixed infrastructure has impeded the growth of fixed broadband 


Malaysia: Astro’s double-play bundle is popular due to the variety of TV channels offered while TM’s triple-play pack is chosen for high bandwidth

PLDT’s triple-play gained some momentum initially, but Globe Telecom countered it with double-play high-speed OTT video-integrated plans


Thailand: High speeds command a premium but operators are mainly competing around the low-speed low-priced plans
