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.

    Last optin naming lahat ang Globe. Lokohan itong company na to. Ok lang sila within 1 week to 1 month, yes lang nang yes ang mga agent nila pag mag susubscribe at magpapainstal tayo. Pagtapos gagawa na sila ng scheme para ma-overcharge ka sasabihin nila na nasa small print ng contract. Kahit mali yung ginawa nila, pahihirapan ka kumuha ng refund or bill adjustment. So much so that susuko ka nalang at hindi ka na mag fo-folow through. The only reason kung bakit buhay pa itong company is because of the deep pocket of the Ayala group of companies, they don’t really care about the customers welfare. Sasakit lang ulo nyo believe it or not. Marami nang nabiktima.

    Di naman naeenjoy yang 4G na yan. Nasa Metro Manila lang ako (Makati tsaka Alabang), napakabagal parin ng 4G. At totoo, Edge pa minsan. Globe at smart, pareho lang nakakabwisit. Swertehan nalang kung nasa magandang spot ka talaga.

    Their shitty network might be 100% HSPA+ already but this does NOT imply that their coverage has also improved, in fact it has gone from bad to worst.

    Di ako makarelate. Globe ako pero di ko ramdam ang 4g. Kahit nga 3g bihira lang kami magkita. Nakakadaupang palad ko madalas GPRS and EDGE kahit naka postpaid data plan ako. Habang nagbabasa ako ngayon sa site na ito at nagiiwan ng comento, si EDGE ang katuwang ko.

    HSPA+ is not true 4G. In any case yung LTE ntn dto ndi n naman narearreach half of other countries’ 3G. And if this “ad” is true why am i seeing EDGE beside the signal bar?

    globe, u have to realize na di lahat ng subscribers and potential subscribers nyo tanga. the general public should sue you for deceptive and misleading advertising.
    and Yugatech, is this a paid article??? doesn’t anybody in any department verify the truth of what you’re posting? did nobody ask themselves what really is HSPA+ and 4G??? wait, you should know that right off the bat. do you not have any opinion on this blatant deception of the Filipino people??? shame on you.

    I think it’s time for the Ph Government to make law regarding false advertisement, what a shame Globe and Smart are always faking their ads. HSPA + is Just plainly 3G!
