More customers in Batangas, Bohol, Bukidnon, Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte and seven other provinces will now have better access to Globe’s 4G LTE network following the completion and modernization of several sites in the last six months.
The company upgraded to 4G LTE from the old 3G network at least 507 sites all over Batangas province. Globe has also migrated 488 locations in Metro Manila and 450 sites in Cebu to 4G LTE, the new standard of mobile data.
“These network improvements will bring better call, SMS and data browsing services to our customers especially in areas that need connectivity the most. As we have promised since the start of the year, we really intend to make 4G LTE more pervasive not only in Luzon but in more areas also in Visayas and Mindanao,” said Joel Agustin, Globe SVP for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.
In Mindanao, 366 sites are now powered by 4G LTE in Davao del Sur while in Davao del Norte 126 sites have been upgraded. In Bukidnon, 79 sites have been migrated to 4G LTE.
In Bohol, 85 locations are now 4G LTE ready. Globe has also upgraded 111 sites in Cagayan; 88 in Rizal; 195 in Cavite; 328 in Laguna, and 358 in Pampanga.
Globe’s relentless efforts to improve the country’s state of connectivity has led to it being the most consistent mobile network for two consecutive quarters in 2021, as verified by Ookla.
The company remained the leader in nationwide mobile consistency, ahead of competition. The Consistency Score in Q1 2021 was 70.43 and Q2 2021 was 75.98.
