Globe Modernizes Davao Network


Globe Telecom Inc. said it completed the modernization of major infrastructure projects in the Davao region and key areas in Mindanao, forming a significant part of the rollout of its brand new network and intensifying mobile services in the area that includes Zamboanga and Misamis.

Globe chief technical adviser Robert Tan said the network upgrade in Davao and nearby areas was bringing in better mobile coverage, increased data speeds and better network reliability in that part of the country.

He noted that “in terms of service quality after the upgrade, our call setup rate improved dramatically. Now, a call you make in Davao consistently gets connected even at first try.”

He confirmed that Davao City and adjacent provinces were now fully equipped with new generation mobile systems capable of supporting fourth-generation Evolved High-Speed Packet Access, or 4G HSPA+.

“In Mindanao, completed HSPA+ cell sites include Tipo-tipo in Basilan; Cabanglasan, Impasugong, Malaybalay and Sumilao in Bukidnon; Don Victoriano Chiongbian in Misamis Occidental; Norala and Santo Niño in South Cotabato; Bagumbayan, Columbio, Isulan, President Quirino and Tacurong in Sultan Kudarat; the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga Sibugay and Zamboanga del Sur; Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur and Davao Oriental as well as the whole of Compostela Valley,” Tan said.
