Globe rolls out more LTE sites to key cities
Globe LTE subscribers can now enjoy more LTE coverage as Globe Telecom activates more LTE sites across the country.
During its initial launch, Globe has focused its seamless LTE coverage in Makati but has steadily increased their LTE infrastructure in key cities of Metro Manila as well as major areas outside the metropolis. These include Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig, City of Manila, Muntinlupa City, as well as Cebu City and Boracay in Malay, Aklan in the Visayas.
Within these locales, the company has switched-on its LTE signal in some of the major avenues, villages and subdivisions, business districts, upscale malls, hotels, busy commercial zones, government offices, schools, sporting arenas and hospitals, as well as the premier tourist destination Boracay.
In an interview, Globe President & CEO Ernest Cu said that the LTE philosophy of Globe is to let their subscribers go around contiguous areas without having to lose their LTE signal: “We don’t want them to be constrained in a specific LTE spot and be cut-off after stepping out of there. The Globe LTE coverage lets them freely walk around places they frequent such as malls, offices and the like and still receive our LTE signal seamlessly.”
Since fourth quarter of last year, Globe subscribers with LTE-powered gadgets such as the premium mobile broadband Tattoo Black and the Huawei Ascend P1 have been enjoying internet connections at breakneck speeds via the Globe LTE. Meanwhile, those armed with the iPhone 5, iPad 3 and the iPad mini which have recently made available their LTE connectivity through iOS upgrades can now experience Globe LTE on their Apple devices.
