Industry giant Globe Telecom plans to expand the rollout of fifth-generation (5G) services to key Philippine business districts within the year.
Globe, which launched pilot 5G services for the Philippines’ home broadband market last June, is preparing a wider rollout in Metro Manila for 2020. The initial rollout in 2019 centered on the Pasig area within the capital district.
Globe is also looking to test the other capabilities of 5G, which offers ultrafast internet with minimal lag, for the broader mobile market.
It announced the release of a 5G-ready mobile phone, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, for its premium platinum customers.
“Amid competitive pressures and rising challenges in the operating environment, Globe continues to fulfill its long-term commitment to provide the Philippines with first-world internet connectivity,” Globe CEO Ernest Cu said in the statement.
