Globe expands 5G coverage to 80% of Metro Manila

Ayala-led Globe Telecom Inc. said 80 percent of Metro Manila now has access to 5G coverage following the continued modernization of its network.

The telco upgraded 884 locations in Metro Manila into 5G-ready sites to make 5G service available to its customers.

“With our aggressive roll outs, our network is getting closer to making the whole of Metro Manila 5G ready. Ultimately, our goal is to make the 5G experience as pervasive as possible,” said Ernest Cu, CEO of Globe.

Bonifacio Global City, Makati and Ortigas Commercial Business Districts (CBDs) are nearing completion with coverage of 97 percent, 95 percent and 97 percent respectively.

San Juan (91 percent), Pateros (91 percent), Mandaluyong (86 percent), Makati (84 percent), Caloocan (84 percent), Manila (83 percent), Marikina (83 percent), Pasig (81 percent), and Quezon City (80 percent) are among the top nine cities with the most 5G outdoor coverage.

Modernization efforts in Cebu are currently at 61 percent coverage while Davao is with 60 percent coverage.

Globe has budgeted P70 billion for its expansion program, which includes the installation of 2,000 new cell towers as well as fiber rollouts to connect more Filipino homes.
