Globe Telecom has announced that it has deployed additional 500 sites using 2600 MHz frequency in Visayas and Mindanao to improve mobile internet for customers.
The 2600MHz frequency is one of the spectrum assets (aside from 700MHz) that Globe has acquired following the joint buyout of San Miguel Corp.’s telecommunications assets. Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Governance, Network Technical Group, said that the deployment of said spectrum provides additional data capacity through the Carrier Aggregation technology with other LTE frequencies.
“This will give customers faster data speed capabilities to serve growing demand for bandwidth. With 500 sites already activated, our customers in Visayas and Mindanao will be experience faster internet service and the reliability that this band provides,” Agustin said.
