Think about the Philippines having stable 3G coverage in the entire archipelago, with HSPA+ enabled and LTE-ready network.

Well, I guess the country is among the nations to have the best mobile telephony services; and of course, that means better if not best experience that customers have dreamed of before.

That is what Globe Telecom is committed for. In fact, the telco announced that it has invested a whopping 790 million US dollars (more or less Php 30 billion) for the modernization of its current network. The project could be the biggest in Globe’s history since it launched GSM through Islacom about 17 years ago, and the telco says the modernization program will drive to “bigger capacity, wider 3G coverage, HSPA+ enabled and LTE ready to take Globe subscribers to the next frontier of mobile telephony services”.

What this exactly means to an average Joe is no more prompts like “Message sending failed” or “Unable to establish call connection” when using Globe’s mobile services, or perhaps in today’s interactive and dynamic web pages – no more “can’t load the requested page” browser error just because you got a lackluster internet speed.

“The network transformation program is definitely another milestone for Globe. The key to delivering quality products and services is having a strong, reliable and solid network infrastructure,” said Robert Tan, chief technical adviser of Globe. “With this modernization program in place, we are evolving to become a multi-service network enabling different platforms while keeping our customers always connected with Globe,” added Tan.

Globe says its network modernization rollout is expected to be completed in 2 to 3 years and the $790 million US dollars investment can support the project over the next five years.
