Globe’s 5G network now covers 97.1% of NCR

Around 97.1 percent of the National Capital Region (NCR) and 85 percent of key cities in Visayas and Mindanao now have Globe 5G outdoor coverage, according to the Ayala-led telco.

This was achieved amid Globe’s continued deployment of its 5G technology nationwide to deliver improved customer experience as well as consistent and reliable data services.

By expanding Globe’s 5G coverage across the country, Globe’s network becomes better prepared to service more 5G-enabled devices and is able to provide faster connectivity, better video experience, less lag in gaming, and easier sharing of heavy files for school and work. Wider 5G coverage also supports digitalization needs in business.

Globe logged over 3 million devices in its 5G network as of the end of September.

The company anticipates higher 5G device penetration among its customers with the continuous expansion of 5G coverage in the country and the release of more affordable handsets.

“We are dedicated to boosting the mobile experience of our customers by providing them with faster and more reliable 5G connectivity. With this in mind, we remain relentless in our efforts to advance our 5G infrastructure and in making 5G services available to more Filipinos,” said Darius Delgado, head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
