The local telecom company, Globe, recently announced an update regarding its 5G service in the country. As of writing, they have expanded coverage to 17 cities nationwide, adding certain areas in Davao City in the first week of November.
Gil Genio, Globe’s chief technology and information officer, said, “we have a very active 5G development in Metro Manila, and we hope to cover 80% of that soon. We are probably in the two-thirds range right now. To complement this, we have also begun to roll out in six key cities in Visayas and Mindanao as part of the overall change we are making to bring 5G to more places and customers in the country.”
Globe is also on track to support 80% of Metro Manila by December. To see the full 5G coverage of both Smart and Globe, check out the links below.
