Philippines telecommunications services provider Globe Telecom installed 212 new cell sites in the National Capital Region (NCR, aka Metro Manila) in the first six months of the year.
The Ayala-led telco said the new cell sites will help boost better mobile experiences for its customers. Despite the challenges brought by quarantine and health protocols in NCR, the telco sustained its building momentum.
Globe’s network rollout efforts since January have also resulted in more installations. The telco said it also built at least 39 new towers in Cavite in key locations all over the province, 26 new sites in Rizal, 25 new cell sites in Batangas and Laguna.
It said at least 17 new cell sites were also built in Cebu, Bulacan, and Pampanga in the first half of 2021.
"These installations will definitely boost mobile experience not only in Metro Manila but in nearby provinces as well,” said Joel Agustin, Globe SVP for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.
Globe has said that it plans to install at least 2,000 new cell sites this year.
