Philippines operator Globe Telecom is continuously upgrading its network and expanding its LTE TDD and LTE-FDD footprint to further strengthen mobile data infrastructure and deliver faster and more reliable wireless internet connectivity.

The expansion involves activation of more than 4,300 cell sites with the LTE technologies. The growing pervasiveness of its LTE coverage will enhance and strengthen Globe Telecom’s mobile data service in major metropolitan areas such as Manila, Cebu, Davao and other key cities and tourist destinations in the country. Company plans to continue to upgrade its network infrastructure to sufficiently accommodate the growing popularity of smartphones among Globe customers.
