Globe said its 5G technology is now available in at least 848 sites in Metro Manila and Rizal and 183 locations in Visayas and Mindanao. Several parts of Cavite, Laguna and Bulacan are also 5G-enabled.
“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,” said Coco Domingo, Globe VP 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.
In Visayas, 5G is now available in four provinces: seven locations in Negros Occidental, 64 in Cebu, 12 in Iloilo and three in Aklan.
In MIndanao, 5G has reached 25 sites in Misamis Oriental and 72 in Davao del Sur.
Globe has laid out a 3-pronged strategy for its network upgrades and expansion, which includes aggressive cell site builds; upgrading its cell sites to 4G/LTE using many different frequencies; and fast tracking the fiberization of Filipino homes nationwide.
