Globe Scales Up 5G Deployment; NCR Outdoor Coverage Now at 97.1%
As a 5G pioneer in the Philippines, Globe continues to deploy its 5G technology nationwide to deliver improved customer experience as well as consistent and reliable data services.
Globe’s 5G outdoor coverage has now reached 97.1% of the National Capital Region and 87.7% of key cities in Visayas and Mindanao. 5G technology is capable of delivering internet speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G.
By expanding Globe’s 5G coverage across the country, Globe’s network becomes better prepared to service more 5G-enabled devices and is able to provide faster connectivity, better video experience, less lag in gaming, and easier sharing of heavy files for school and work. Wider 5G coverage also supports digitalization needs in business.
As of end-September 2022, Globe logged over 3 million devices in its 5G network. The company anticipates higher 5G device penetration among its customers with the continuous expansion of 5G coverage in the country and the release of more affordable handsets.
Globe has made several entry-level and mid-range 5G models available for free if subscribed to a postpaid plan or at a price that is easy on the budget if bought separately.
“We are dedicated to boosting the mobile experience of our customers by providing them with faster and more reliable 5G connectivity. With this in mind, we remain relentless in our efforts to advance our 5G infrastructure and in making 5G services available to more Filipinos,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
Globe also has existing 5G roaming partnerships with some of the largest telco operators in Asia, the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East to allow its customers to enjoy convenient high-speed data roaming anywhere they may be.
By expanding its cross-border alliances for 5G, travelers get better data roaming experience at affordable costs. Recent tie-ups include Vivacom (Bulgaria), Viettel (Vietnam), China Mobile (China), Tele2 (Sweden), and Vivo (Brazil).
