Globe Network Modernization: What it Means to Philippine Customers

Globe is investing over USD 700M to make the most technologically advanced network in the Philippines

Globe\’s network modernization has been in the news since last month and now Globe even shout out to their customers that they are very serious about the on-going network upgrades.

I notice that I am getting more HSPA+ coverage in our area lately even though the signal is a little inconsistent. It is still better because I don\’t get HSPA+ signal before.

According to the service announcement that I received, Globe\’s network modernization program will provide its customers connectivity superior  than any other network in the Philippines. That sound\’s really ambitious so don\’t expect it to happen overnight.

Business Mirror reported about 80 percent of the $790 million investment will be spent in the first two years which is $530 million next year, and another $110 million in 2013.

Below, you\’ll find an infographic from Globe about their network modernization:
