Globe Telecom Inc. has affirmed its customers that they will receive better data and faster internet speed this year.

Currently, the telecommunications company is ramping up investments to provide more fiber to homes and cell sites.

“As we go forward and upwards, Globe is committed to advance and improve its network infrastructure. While the new sites will need time to be built and fired up, the recent unimpeded permitting process has proven to be the much-needed catalyst for the telco industry,” Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu said.

Moreover, Globe said 5G would be also rolled out this year in more cities and municipalities nationwide.

In line with this, the telco said voice services would likewise improve by providing voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) to bring clearer voice calls, faster call setup, and near zero dropped calls.

VoLTE and VoWiFi were initially rolled out in NCR and in other parts of Luzon, and will be present in Visayas and Mindanao this year.

“Improving the country’s state of connectivity and internet speed is a continuing effort that requires both public and private sector support,” Cu said.

Just last year, Globe built over 600,000 broadband lines — 55 percent improvement from 2019.

The company was also able to build 1,300 new cell sites and upgraded 11,529 sites to 4G/LTE last 2020.
