Building a Digital Nation
Amid competitive pressures and rising challenges in the operating environment, Globe continued to fulfill its long-term commitment to provide the Philippines with first-world internet connectivity.
Globe embarked on a US$700m seven-year network modernization program in 2011, which changed all its radio legacy network and expanded the mobile data coverage to 100%. After the massive network modernization program, Globe saw the unprecedented growth of its business, driven by pioneering initiatives such as a digital lifestyle play, innovative products and services, content partnerships with iconic global brands, and early-stage 5G network connectivity. Underpinning this growth is a robust network that has solidified the reputation of Globe both as a leader in mobile and a game changer.
To support the growing digital lifestyle of Filipinos, Globe will continue to invest in strengthening its data network capacity in the Philippines and optimize its existing spectrum. In 2019, the company plans to build a record number of new cell sites and invest significantly in growing its home broadband footprint. By further expanding its network footprint and connecting more Filipino homes with high speed lines, Globe will be able to deliver an even better customer experience and empower more digital Filipinos.
