Globe is strengthening its partnership with the local government units, recognizing that local officials’ support is essential in realizing its goal of enhancing connectivity to boost economic development in the country.
To improve its mobile services in Cebu, Globe continues to ramp up deployment of LTE sites using the 700 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz bands. Since the company gained access to new spectrum assets in the middle of last year, close to 600 LTE sites have already been activated in Cebu alone.
LGU collaborations also pave the way for broadband connectivity to reach more homes, which is realized in Globe At Home’s Cebu launch of its new GoBIG plans that have bigger data allocations at affordable rates and fast, reliable speeds. These new plans come with free 100 GB of data to access and enjoy YouTube.
In Cebu City, Globe At Home Fibre sites are currently available in: Dona Modesta Gaisano St.; Friendship Street; Justice St.; Wisdom St.; Freedom St.; Yakal St,; Mahogany St.; Obedience St.; A.Villalon Drive; Hacienda Salinas; Wilson St. corner Pasteur St.; Marconi St.; La Guardia St.; 1st St.; Sanson Road; Sanson Road Extension; Sanjercas Ville Private Road; and Salinas Drive Extension.
Expansions in Mandaue City are also underway as Globe works closely with the city’s local government unit.
Together with improving connectivity at home, Globe At Home has also lent its support to the company’s sustainability initiatives specifically programs that deliver quality education in the public education sector. Globe has rolled-out 2 key programs with the Department of Education to maximize new technologies in enabling world-class quality education in the Philippines.
In Mandaue City, Globe launched its Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP), which is its cyberwellness advocacy that addresses the online health and safety of Visayan youth. Globe launched the workshop in Mandaue City Science High School to increase students’ knowledge of digital citizenship and cyber safety by helping them develop insights into the influences of the online world and the choices they are making.
At CCNSHS, with 38 teachers and 1,004 students, Globe turned over 20 tablets with mirroring capability for projectors and LCD screens, two projector kits with projector screen, 10 Globe Prepaid Supersticks, one mobile cart which also serves as a charging station, and free 10 mbps internet line. CCNSHS is the 10th school in Cebu province that benefitted from the GFS program that now covers 142 schools all over the country.
With more homes and schools getting connected, Globe At Home will continue its expansion to reach more locations in Cebu and the rest of the country.
