Globe is set to start a cell site buildup in various parts of the country over the next three months as part of its expansion plan this year.

Globe is committed to improve its services despite health and safety concerns brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cell site buildup will start in July in Metro Manila, north and south Luzon as well as the Visayas and Mindanao.

Globe customers in areas where the projects are pursued are advised of temporary service disruptions such as loss of signal or internet connectivity for at least an hour anytime during the day.

“In order to complete the installations of the cell sites and towers, our customers and the public in general may experience temporary disruptions in their call, text and mobile data services. We would like to assure our customers that we will send out advisories days before the service disruptions will happen so that they can fully prepare when the time comes,” Joel Agustin, Globe SVP for Program Development, said.

Affected customers will receive advisories through SMS or other channels on the interruptions.

The buildup effort will help increase capacity in response to the challenge of growing demand for data and need for connectivity as the country adapts to the new normal.
