Globe Empowers Davao and Cebu with New Mobile Experience
Globe Telecom brings an entirely new level of mobile experience through the cell site upgrades across the nation.
They started this project in Davao that formed a significant segment of the network's 500-plus cell sites using 4G HSPA+ equipping Globe subscribers with new generation mobile systems. In addition, this service brings Davaoenos with much improved call quality, instantaneous text messaging capabilities, as well as richer, fuller web browsing experience
“The network build of Globe in Davao and its nearby areas would result in better mobile coverage, increased data speeds and better network reliability in that part of the country,” said Robert Tan, Chief Technical Adviser of Globe Telecom.
The company didn't stop there. They recently completed the swap-out of its cell sites and other network facilities in Cebu which brought forth better service qualities for them like reduced drop call rates as well as better call set-up and quality in the entire province and the Central Visayas region. The area has also been primed for switching-on of 4G HSPA+ technology and is also ready to upgrade to 4G LTE technology.
“We consider this a major achievement as our local network engineering team, together with our foreign partners Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei, achieved the Cebu swap-out in record time. The province of Cebu was divided into six network clusters, with teams simultaneously working on changing the cell sites. The total project was completed in 24 hours,” said Tan, “This strengthens our capacity to expediently implement the replacement of the network infrastructure with minimal disruption on our services.”
With upgrades like these, Filipinos can now enjoy a faster and more effective mobile experience only from Globe Telecom.
