Globe completes Phase 1 of Network Modernization

Globe Telecom Inc. has recently announced that it has already completed the first phase of its $700 million network modernization plan.

“The first phase of the modernization is practically done. We have immediately moved to the next phase of optimizing our new equipment for maximum performance. This concludes the modernization of our access network,” said Emmanuel Estrada, head network strategy of Globe Network Technology Group.


The first phase includes the replacement of cellsites and existing hardware like power sources or generators, base stations and switches, with new technology equipment to boost mobile and data services. According to Estrada, 54% of Globe’s cell sites are already running on 4G HSPA+.


For the next phase, Globe will focusing on improving its customer solutions which they expect to be finished by the end of the year. “To radically improve our network performance and our customers’ experience, we need to replace more than cell sites.”

The obvious question now becomes — are you feeling the network modernization? Are SMS still delayed, experiencing drop calls or is your mobile internet faster now than last quarter?

    I was complaining to Globe before because of a very slow GPRS internet in our small town but in fairness to this telco, they are really doing improvements bacause right now our signal is from GPRS-Edge to 3.5G so am quite satisfied for now for what Globe is doing….sana the next step is to provide wimax connections in our area so more people will benefit from it as most people in our area uses internet to get in touch with their love ones abroad….cheers Globe!!! Happy New Year…
