In partnership with the local government unit (LGU) of the City of Manila, the telco was able to begin its rollout of fiber optic cables making Binondo as the 1st Globe Connected District. This $1 million investment should benefit 5,000 new business and home subscribers especially when it gets completed by Q3 of the year.

Apart from fiber optics, the telco will also roll out small cell technology around the district to expand the coverage and capacity of their 3G and LTE network.

This project of Globe is the pilot rollout of fiber broadband across the country wherein they envision to deploy an ‘internet super highway’ to 20,000 barangays by the year 2020 for 2 million homes.
