Globe on track for 5G rollout


    Globe Telecom Inc. is on track to roll out fifth generation (5G) technology in more areas in the country this year to provide customers with faster internet services.

    “We are rolling out more 5G areas this year to make this new technology more inclusive.

    We want more Globe customers to experience the difference of 5G technology in terms of better and faster connectivity. This technology has vast potentials and soon we will start rolling out cases that are best experienced with 5G,” said Coco Domingo, Globe vice president for postpaid and international.

    5G is the latest wireless internet connectivity that promises faster speeds, higher bandwidth and more stable internet connections compared to 4G.

    Recent upgrades made in the last two months of 2020 have made the latest technology available in at least 848 sites in Metro Manila and Rizal, and 183 locations in Visayas and Mindanao, Globe said.

    In Cavite, 5G is present in three areas, five in Laguna and six in Bulacan, it added.
    Overall, 5G is now available in 1,045 areas in the country.

    In Visayas, Globe said 5G is now available in four provinces: seven locations in Negros Occidental, 64 in Cebu, 12 in Iloilo and three in Aklan.

    Continued ramping of Globe facilities has also made the technology available in 25 sites in Misamis Oriental and 72 places in Davao del Sur in Mindanao.
