Globe Telecom widens LTE footprint in VisMin
Globe Telecom is accelerating the deployment of long-term evolution (LTE) sites in Visayas and Mindanao to provide better service to the consuming public.
The company has already deployed close to 3,000 LTE sites, covering almost 60 percent of its physical sites in the region.
“Our customers in Visayas and Mindanao are now enjoying the benefit of a more pervasive LTE network in the region following accelerated deployment of LTE sites using various frequencies.
We expect customer experience to continue improving moving forward as we step up deployment of LTE sites,” said Joel Agustin , Globe SVP for Program Governance Network Technical Group.
Agustin said the deployment of LTE sites addresses growing customer demand for bandwidth amid rising consumption of multi-media content.
Globe mobile data traffic surged 85 percent to 280 petabytes at the end of the first half from 151 petabytes a year ago.
