Globe deploys additional sites with 2600 MHz in Visayas and Mindanao

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.

    “This will give customers faster data speed capabilities to serve growing demand for bandwidth” at a higher plan. ;)
    globe now offers 3mbps plan, 1299php, 50GB data cap.

    sana may totoong high speed yet affordable plan ang mga ISPs sa PH.

    these ISPs can make a deal with netflix.
    1000php/month 10mbps, unlimited + 499php per month for netflix.

    medyo unfair kasi na yung kaya lang bumili ng 50mbps fiber internet plan or better ang may totoong unlimited internet.

      Acutally, they’re already rolling out their 15 Mbps plan for P1,599 with 150 GB data allowance. call them asap :)

    • May unli naman eh yung GoSuft 999, yung Anti-Bill Shock. Kahit lagpas kana sa allowance mo 1,500 lang babayaran mo. Yun nga lang depende sa lugar.
      @Pukemaster yan yung Rubicon Plan diba, pang existing subscribers lang daw yan.

    @pukemaster, di ba yung globe rubicon plan para lang sa wired internet?
    LTE connection kasi ako.

    yung LTE 3mbps 1299php plan is currently offered in misamis oriental and bukidnon. kung medyo matagal na pala yung 1599php 15mbps, eh di niloloko na naman kaming mga probinsiyano. :(

    Old subscriber. 2mbps plan. 5GB/day limit. Ayos na to. Kaysa 15mbps plan tapos ang baba naman ng monthly limit.

    Hanggat may FUP, useless ang speed increase.
