Globe Telecom (Globe) accelerates the rollout of its in-building solutions (IBS) to provide a better 5G network coverage especially in tourism-related destinations such as airports, shopping malls, and stadiums. IBS is used to extend and distribute cellular signals within a building or structure.
From January to September this year, Globe has already completed 73 5G IBS installations including the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals 1, 3, and 4, as well as the Newport Mall, Riverbank Mall, SM Mall of Asia Annex, office-retail W City Center, Philippine Arena, and New Clark City Athletic Stadium. In addition, the telco network has also activated 5G IBS at the House of Representatives complex, Legislative Library Building, Speaker Ramon V. Mitra Building, Marikina City Hall, MAAX, The Globe Tower, and 917Ventures office.
“Our network rollouts and upgrades remain on track. We also see to it that we equip existing structures with the right technology for better and consistent coverage indoors,” said Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.
Globe also continues to expand its 5G coverage to more locations nationwide to provide ultra-low latency, greater bandwidth, and superior network reliability. As of end-September, Globe already has over 1,900 5G locations across the country, mostly located in major urban centers. In addition, it already has 95% outdoor coverage in the National Capital Region as well as accelerated its cell site builds.
