Globe Telecom continues to wow its customers and subscribers as it announces a few more exciting network updates and partnerships at the last Wonderful World With Globe XI: Create Wonderful. Let’s see what it’s all about. 🙂
Held at the BGC Central Ampitheatre, the telco went straight to the point by showcasing the extent of expansions of network infrastructure with on-the-spot speed tests in Quezon City, Mandaluyong City, and Makati City.
Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu said that more and more of the company’s customers will experience improved services as adoption of LTE-capable devices increases and as the telco provider continues to deploy LTE 700 in more sites. “Guided by our new purpose of ‘treating people right to create a Globe of Good’, the company is aggressively fast tracking a multi-pronged network infrastructure and capacity expansion build to provide our customer a better internet experience,” said Cu.
Cu said the company’s deployment of LTE service using the 700 megahertz (MHz) frequency is now in full swing, adding Globe expects to have around 250 LTE 700 sites by the end of September. According to Cu, the company plans to activate more than 500 LTE 700 sites across the country by the end 2016. Majority of the company’s LTE 700 sites will cover major business districts and highly-urbanized and populated areas in the country, including Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Metro Davao. He emphasized Globe is maximizing the use of the previously idle 700 MHz band in fulfillment of its commitment to the National Telecommunications Commission to improve the overall internet experience of its customers following the sell-out of San Miguel’s telco assets.
The telco also reiterated their newest initiative for Globe Postpaid subscribers wherein you can now ROLL OVER YOUR UNUSED DATA FROM THE MONTH BEFORE. This is great news, really!
Plus, they also announced partnerships with Musical.ly, a popular instant music video maker mobile app, and more content such as “I Dare to Dream” Disney Princess search.
But what piques my curiosity the most is how they’ve teased us with possible things with Pokémon GO.
Keeping our fingers crossed. Congratulations Globe! I’m excited to see what else you come up with by next year. 🙂
