The Philippines looks set to get a new WiMAX operator with the news that Liberty Telecommunications Holdings (Liberty Telecom) is poised to launch its commercial network ‘soon’.

Having trialled a free pilot service to selected clients in Metro Manila, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Makati and Quezon City, Liberty Telecom now plans to begin a full-blown service, GoingWimax.com reports without citing sources. The newcomer, which is backed by San Miguel Corp and Qatar Telecom, holds 40MHz of bandwidth in the 2.5GHz-2.7GHz range. It says its new services will be priced lower than its rivals in a bid to sign up new users quickly. Rates may be offered for as little as PHP250 (USD5.45) per month, it said.
