Are your gadgets ready for 5G? Experience a different kind of mobile technology as Globe expands their 5G coverage to 17 key cities across NCR, Visayas and Mindanao.
The company is accelerating upgrades of its existing technology to improve further the connectivity, mobile experience, and unlock vast potentials for its customers as 5G technology in Bacolod, Boracay, Iloilo, Talisay, Lapu-Lapu, Cordova, Minglanilla and Cebu City in Visayas; and in Davao City and Cagayan De Oro in Mindanao becomes available.
In the first week of November, its 5G network has already reached certain areas in Davao City.
5G is the latest wireless internet connectivity that promises faster speeds, higher bandwidth, and more stable internet connections compared to 4G.
“We have a very active 5G development in Metro Manila and we hope to cover 80% of that soon. We are probably in the two-thirds range right now. To complement this, we have also begun to roll out in six key cities in Visayas and Mindanao as part of the overall change we are making to bring 5G to more places and customers in the country,” said Gil Genio, Globe’s Chief Technology and Information Officer.
In Metro Manila, Globe has added more additional sites to widen its total areas with 5G availability, currently on track for its target to cover around 80% of Metro Manila by the end of 2020.
Globe’s aggression on 5G rollout is part of its 3-pronged strategy for network upgrades and expansion, which includes aggressive cell site builds; upgrading its cell sites to 4G/LTE using many different frequencies; and fast tracking the fiberization of Filipino homes nationwide.
Meanwhile, Globe Telecom is a corporate partner of Mindanao-based Hineleban Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit organization that promotes reforestation, environmental conversation and sustainable farming practices.
