Globe installed 380 new 5G sites in first quarter 2022

Globe has announced that it is accelerating its rollout of 5G cell sites in areas not reached by fixed internet or broadband in order to significantly improve the Philippines' Digital Quality of Life (DQL).

This was shared by the Head of Get Entertained Tribe at Globe, Rina Azcuna-Siongco, during the OTT (Over the Top) Summit 2022 organized by the Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA). Giving a speech on the topic "How will 5G Change the Game for Asian Streaming Services?" she explained that the deployment of 5G technology complements Globe's broadband rollout to "deliver #1stWorldNetwork to customers."

Siongco noted that one of the ways they've installed 5G is in "areas where it's a bit more challenging to deploy fixed internet or broadband," and they "need to do it through 5G instead." This enables Globe "to deliver things like better video streaming and gaming experiences."

Globe's 5G network now covers 95% of the National Capital Region (NCR) population and 85% in Visayas and Mindanao.

The telco is also doubling its efforts this year to expand its network of 5G cell sites and in-building solutions.

Globe launched 380 new 5G sites in the first quarter of 2022 to complement its outdoor and in-building solutions in Metro Manila, Rizal, Batangas, Cavite, Bulacan, Davao, Cebu, Iloilo, and Misamis Oriental.

Video streaming peaked in the last two years as it evolved into a source of entertainment for Filipinos confined to their homes due to severe mobility restrictions. Additionally, it contributed to the rise in popularity of short-form video content such as TikTok.
