Globe’s network expansion continues in Mindanao
MANILA – Another major telecommunications player, Globe Telecom, has pursued its network expansion in Mindanao with several projects all over the southern island including Patikul, Sulu.
In a statement, Globe said among these projects are the construction of cell sites also known as cell towers in Davao Oriental, Saranggani, South Cotabato, Bukidnon and in Sulu to further boost network capacity in Mindanao.
The different projects are in various construction stages after Globe Telecom received strong support from the local government units and the communities around the cell sites, customers and the general public who now expect better services soon.
“We want to assure our customers that our efforts to give better service and experience are not only concentrated in Luzon or in major commercial centers in big cities. We want to bring our services closer, more accessible and of course to more number of our countrymen in more places in the country,” said Joel Agustin, Globe SVP for Program Development-Network Technical Group.
A number of cell sites are expected to rise in Mati, Davao Oriental, Malapatan in Saranggani, Maray-Maray in Bukidnon, Polomolok in South Cotabato and Bud Datu in Patikul, Sulu.
Agustin expressed optimism that with these on-going construction across the regions, they can bring more opportunities due to connectivity with better communication, better service and promotion of small businesses in the communities. In Sulu, better signal means farmers can go directly to potential buyers and customers not only in Zamboanga but directly to other places for them to sell mangosteen lanzones, marang, durian, vegetables and other farm products.
