Rumor Debunked: TELSTRA Philippines is NOT Happening NOW.

A lot of rumors circulating on the internet about Australian telecommunications company Telstra. Where did it all start? Nobody clearly knows where exactly. It may be the Facebook status that has been going around about a new player in the telecommunications market in the Philippines.

Or it may be because of the photo below of a building rumored to be Telstra Philippines’ HQ.


Rumor has it: Telstra will provide unlimited internet with infinitive speeds just because they can.

Seeing this (below) screencap on facebook we still wondered about the legitimacy of information since Telstra DOES NOT have a Philippines Facebook page.

So to finally put an end to the rumors of Telstra Philippines, we went to Telstra’s official VERIFIED Facebook and Twitter pages and this is what they had to say:

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 7.10.42 PMLong story short: There is a discussion between Telstra Au and San Miguel Corporation but nothing has been finalized, no agreements made, no contracts signed and there is NO assurance when this agreement will happen or if it will even happen at all.

What do you think of this issue?
