Globe Telecom network is now 100% 4G HSPA+
The Ayala-led telecommunications company, Globe Telecom, has announced that its entire network is now equipped with 4G HSPA+.
The telecom giant has just completed its 100% 4G HSPA+ rollout last month. Back in June, Globe Telecom became the first full 3G network in the Philippines.
“The Globe 4G HSPA+ network extends the company’s ability, as a telecommunications provider, to adequately serve high data usage of customers amid proliferation of bandwidth-intensive applications and growing preference for smartphones and other mobile devices,” Globe President & CEO Ernest Cu said.
Next in the pipeline is the improving the LTE network of the company. Globe and Alcatel Lucent are in partnership to expand the LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD footprint in Visayas and Mindanao. Aside from that, Globe is also testing out the latest in LTE technologies like LTE-CA and LTE-eMBMS that increases efficient utilization of frequencies and better streaming through LTE networks.
