Globe installed 41 more 5G sites across Visayas and Mindanao in 2023 in line with its strategic rollout of the technology, as it continues to test for certain applications that will enable Filipinos across social classes.

Globe added 27 more sites in Visayas and 14 new ones in Mindanao last year, as part of its broader initiative to enhance digital connectivity in the areas of health, education, finance, and entertainment.

Visayas, a vibrant and culturally rich region in the heart of the Philippines, is known for its vital contributions to the country’s economy through its robust industry and services sector.

Globe’s investment in the region’s digital infrastructure aligns with the national government’s economic targets and the forward-looking Digital Philippines initiative, guaranteeing widespread access to technological benefits for all.

Meanwhile, Mindanao, the second-largest island in the Philippines, is renowned for its vast natural resources and burgeoning economic potential. The region is currently undergoing significant transformation, evolving into a critical economic zone.

In 2023, Globe attained 92.36% outdoor coverage in key Visayas and Mindanao cities and 97.90% in the National Capital Region. This facilitated over 5.8 million devices connecting to Globe’s 5G network in December alone, a testament to the company’s relentless pursuit of technological advancement and superior service delivery.

In the face of challenges posed by market conditions and the ongoing search for viable 5G use cases, Globe has maintained a strategic approach to its network expansion. The company’s sustained spending on new 5G sites underscores its commitment to sustainable growth and the responsible deployment of technology.

“Our 5G expansion in Visayas in Mindanao is a major milestone in our journey towards creating a truly digital Philippines. We are not only enhancing connectivity for Filipinos but also enabling a myriad of opportunities for businesses, communities, and the country as a whole,” said Joel Agustin, Globe’s Senior Vice President for Network Planning and Engineering.

As Globe continues to push the boundaries of digital connectivity, its commitment to bringing the benefits of advanced technologies to Filipinos everywhere remains unwavering. To learn more about how the company paves the way for a more connected and digitally empowered Philippines, visit
