Globe completes 1st phase of network upgrade in Makati


Globe Telecom has finally completed a crucial phase of its upgrades in Makati City, allowing homes and businesses in the country’s financial hub to enjoy the benefits of the company’s modernized network.

In a statement, Globe said the initial stage of the network modernization, which involves the replacement of all cell sites with advanced cutting edge telecommunications infrastructure was completed to cover the entire city this month.

The Ayala-led firm said subscribers could now enjoy reliable 3G and 4G-HSPA+ coverage service in the city, covering exclusive villages, upscale condominiums, busy work locales with large-volume human traffic, high-rise buildings, major thoroughfares, indoor coverage in hotels and malls, as well parks and dining establishments.

Specifically, stronger Globe signals can now be enjoyed in the areas of Forbes Park, Greenbelt, Rockwell, Barangays Palanan and Bangkal, Ayala Avenue, the stretch of Gil Puyat Avenue/Buendia, Edsa, South Superhighway, Arnaiz Avenue and Jupiter Street, Bel-Air.

Services are now also more reliable in Salcedo Village, Pasong Tamo Extension, Dasmariñas Village, Salcedo Village, H. V. dela Costa Street, Valero Street and McKinley Road.

“These network advancements are engineered to empower Makati—its residents, as well as its workers and businesses-with an optimized infrastructure to elevate their mobile experience,” Globe president and CEO Ernest Cu said in a statement.

The company has already communicated this positive development to its subscribers by way of personalized letters, outlining the benefits of their upgraded network which will be further optimized to give them unparalleled mobile and data experience.

According to the correspondence, the service improvement is a result of a “positive shift in its service and technology platforms.”

“The inconveniences of dropped calls, delayed messaging and slow data transmission are now things of the past,” Cu said.

The cities of Manila, San Juan and Mandaluyong are next in the pipeline for modernization after the completion of the first phase of the Makati upgrade in December 2012.

The cities of Taguig, Pasig, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, Pasay, Las Piñas and the municipality of Pateros are also scheduled for modernization in the first quarter of next year.

      LOLS! And they called it cutting edge, WTH!

      EDSA (Makati)? I doubt. Kapag tumawid kasi ng Ilog Pasig mula Mandaluyong papuntang Makati, bigla na lang hindi na makapag-browse sa mobile Internet.
