Globe has built at least 641 new cell towers and completed 8,175 site upgrades in the first half of the year as part of its continued network modernization efforts.
These include changing its obsolete 3G network to 4G LTE in Pangasinan, Misamis Oriental, Nueva Ecija, Bataan, Zambales, Tarlac, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, Antique, Siquijor and Guimaras.
“These expansion and completion of site upgrades will bring better call, SMS and data browsing services to our customers in these provinces. As we promised during the early part of the year, we wanted to elevate the mobile experience of our customers not only in highly-urbanized areas but also in rural areas to make it more inclusive and accessible,” said Joel Agustin, Globe SVP for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.
“Despite the travel and health restrictions imposed all over the country due to the pandemic, Globe has been relentless in bringing better and more enjoyable mobile experiences to customers. We encourage those who are still using 3G SIMs to switch to the 5G-ready 4G/LTE SIM now and make the most of their call, text, and data browsing services,” added Agustin.
Customers may send SIM CHECK to 8080 if they are still using 3G SIM cards. If they are, upgrading to the 5G-ready 4G LTE SIM is FREE of charge. There is no fee involved and more importantly, customers get to keep their old mobile number. For security reasons, customers are advised to upgrade their SIM at a Globe Store if current health protocols in their respective areas allow them to do so.
