Ayala-led Globe steps up fiber network expansion to meet customers’ growing data needs

Leading digital solutions platform Globe is accelerating the rollout of its fiber broadband to meet the growing demand for more stable and faster connections amid growing reliance on technology and the internet.

Raymond Policarpio, VP for Brand Marketing and Broadband Business at Globe, said the company aims to roll out more fiber-to-the-home lines this year after deploying a total of 3.7 million lines, including 1.4 million in 2022 alone.

The increased deployment has led to a 35 percent rise in fiber subscribers and an 84% surge in revenue, compared to 2021.

Policarpio emphasized the importance of providing customers with stable and fast connections, stating that Globe’s fiber network offers a fixed wired solution that can meet their growing data needs.

The company also reported continued growth in its fixed wired subscribers, which increased by 17 percent year-on-year to reach 1.1 million, thanks to the migration of Home Prepaid WiFi subscribers to fiber.

Looking ahead, Globe plans to continue transitioning its fixed wireless and legacy technology customers to fiber, ensuring that all customers have access to dependable connections.
