Philippines operator Globe Telecom has announced its largest network upgrade to date, 10 years after it introduced data with its nationwide network transformation programme. Globe has developed a 3-pronged strategy to upgrade voice and data services for its customers. Globe initially plans to accelerate cell site deployments to expand coverage and increase capacity for data services. Globe will then upgrade its sites to 4G/LTE using different frequencies. The third step is to fast track the fiberization of Filipino homes to upgrade data services using wireline connectivity.
