GLOBE TELECOM, Inc. has started building new cell sites in Puerto Princesa City in a bid to boost mobile coverage in one of the country’s top tourist destinations.
“Building new sites in different parts of the country is in support of our initiative to continuously expand our network presence, providing a robust and reliable network, which in turn, will further enhance service performance,” Joel Agustin, Globe senior vice-president and head of Services Management Division and Network Technical Group, said in the statement.
Globe Telecom said that it has completed the roll out of HSPA+ technology, which further strengthened the company’s capability to provide its growing 45 million customers faster data connectivity.
“All the network upgrades we have done in Palawan are in support of the government’s initiative to boost tourism in the country. Our efforts to boost network capacity and enhance reliability in the province will also provide support for data requirements of business establishments in Palawan,” Mr. Agustin added.
A 400-kilometer undersea cable system serves as the channel for telecommunication services between the province and Luzon.
The Palawan cable system provides high-speed internet connection and a more dependable network, Globe said.
