Dividend lovers are seeing huge yields in the telecom space. For instance, American behemoths Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T (NYSE: T) are sporting dividend yields of 6.5% and 6.6%, respectively.

To vet the opportunities in the space, senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu sat down with James Early, the lead advisor of the Motley Fool's dividend investing service, Income Investor.

Turns out James sees better opportunities than Verizon or AT&T. He says go the Philippines and Israel to find better plays. Specifically, he likes Philippine Long Distance Telephone (NYSE: PHI) (yielding 6.4%) and Partner Communications (Nasdaq: PTNR) (yielding 10.1%).
