Globe’s Nine Months 2021 Cell Tower Builds up 82% Vs 2020

Globe outpaced its cell site builds in the first nine months of 2021, increasing by 82% over the previous year. This equated to 1,080 new cell sites as of the end of September, up from 593 from January to September 2020.

“The installation of new cell towers will greatly decongest traffic in our existing towers. By building more cell sites, while modernizing the existing ones to 4G LTE, we will ensure to meet the demand for better and accessible connectivity for our customers in more parts of the country,” said Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.

According to Agustin, most new cell towers are being installed in Metro Manila (340) and North Luzon (230). In South Visayas and Mindanao, at least a hundred new cell towers have also been built.

In addition to these, Globe completed 73 in-building solutions (IBS) from January to September of this year. To deliver quality interior coverage to customers, an in-building solution is required. Customers will have stronger mobile signals indoors when using desktops, laptops, and mobile phones with IBS.

“We are very optimistic in sustaining the momentum because more cell towers simply mean better call, text, and data browsing experience for our customers,”  Agustin added.
