Globe has stated its complete support for the new administration’s goal of simplifying government services through digitalization.
Globe stated that it is willing to collaborate with the government using its cutting-edge technologies and services to accelerate digitalization in state agencies and offices and provide the public with fast, convenient, and dependable transactions.
To catch up with the rest of the world, the new administration previously revealed plans to streamline government operations in order to increase efficiency in public services, especially business-related tasks.
Globe stated it added 234 new cell sites nationally in the first quarter of the year, with a goal of 1,700 new sites by FY 2022. A total of 91 towerco sites went live and carried Globe traffic during the same quarter, representing a 57 percent increase over tower company builds during the same period last year.
By the end of March, it has also upgraded over 3,500 mobile sites and deployed 380 new 5G sites, resulting in increased 5G mobile coverage in more locations of the country.
“We welcome the new administration’s goal of increasing digitalization in government for streamlined processes. This will ultimately redound to improved public service– an aspiration that Globe deeply shares with the government as we serve a customer base of 92 million people,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu.
“Our network and infrastructure are ready to support the government and we look forward to working closely with the new administration to achieve this shared goal,” he said.
