Globe installs 8 new cell sites, 84 site upgrades in Batangas
Globe has installed eight new cell sites and completed at least 84 site upgrades in key locations in Batangas.
According to Globe, they have been ramping up their network expansion since last year. Out of the 84 upgraded sites, 52 locations were improvements to the new standard in mobile data, 4G LTE, from the old 3G network. This is part of the company’s expansion and modernization in the province.
The new site builds and network modernization are expected to bring better calls, SMS, and data browsing experience for all Globe customers in the province. However, an update to the user’s SIM to 4G must be done in order to enjoy these upgrades.
“We encourage our customers in Batangas, especially the ones who are still using the old 3G SIM cards to switch to 5G-ready 4G LTE SIM cards and to upgrade their mobile devices into 4G LTE capable ones now for them to enjoy the difference in mobile experience brought by these network rollouts,” Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group, said.
Agustin added that customers in Batangas will keep their old numbers when they switch to 4G LTE SIM cards. If quarantine protocols in their respective areas allow, customers can go to the nearest Globe Store to change their SIM cards for free.
Globe customers in San Juan, Batangas can upgrade their old 3G SIM cards to 5G-ready 4G LTE at the following stores:
• Vergara’s Store, Brgy. Calublub
