Globe Telecom, Inc. said it installed 1,752 new long-term evolution (LTE) sites during the first half of the year, bringing its LTE network coverage to reach almost 95% of cities and municipalities all over the country.
“Globe Telecom intensified its network upgrade and expansion by accelerating the deployment of more LTE sites in key cities and municipalities nationwide to meet customers’ growing demand for data,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
It noted the new sites it rolled out have frequency bands of 700 megahertz (MHz) and 2600 MHz, which increased the total number of LTE stations nationwide to 12,000. — Denise A. Valdez
