Globe Telecom expands 5G coverage in the Philippines

Globe Telecom added at least 12 sites for its 5G service in various cities of the national capital region as well as along tollways leading north and south of Metro Manila.

Globe’s 5G network coverage expansion spreads out from the central business districts of Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Makati, Rockwell Center, and Ortigas, as well as in strategic areas along two of the metropolis’ main radial roads — the historic Epifanio de los Santos Avenue and CP Garcia Avenue or C5.

This achievement comes shortly after the announcement of the availability of mobile 5G to Globe’s Prepaid and TM customers who have 5G devices and are within 5G areas.

The carrier — a joint venture between Singtel and homegrown Ayala group — said that with this expansion, more customers can experience faster speeds that they can use to stream movies and TV shows at the highest-quality; lower latency to play immersive online games with fewer lags; and clearest resolution for video chats. 

Also, businesses, learning institutions, hospitals, and other related industries in Metro Manila can take advantage of the benefits of 5G’s next-level connectivity.

To experience 5G to the fullest, customers have to make sure that they are on a Globe LTE or TM LTE sim paired with a 5G-enabled mobile device. 

Upgrading to a 5G phone is made easier and affordable with Globe Postpaid’s selection of the latest 5G phones that can be availed at much lower prices with ThePLAN. The introductory price and discounts applied to these mobile phones are available until September 30 via Globe’s online shop and stores nationwide.

In 2019, Globe became the first carrier in Southeast Asia to launch 5G when it introduced its AirFiber broadband service for Globe at Home subscribers. Now, the service is also available to all Globe Platinum, Postpaid, and Prepaid customers.
