Globe Telecom Inc. on Tuesday said it has added more 5G locations in Metro Manila as part of its network rollout to improve its services. “Being the pioneer in 5G service in the country, Globe is committed to make this cutting-edge technology accessible to more areas in Metro Manila and nearby locations,” the telco said in a statement. Globe said it fired up 5G service in the following locations: Quezon City: Commonwealth Ave., Tandang Sora Road, Mindanao Ave, Luzon Ave. Manila: Abad Santos Ave., Rizal Ave., Honorio Lopez Blvd. Marikina: Sumulong Highway, Bagong Silang Caloocan: Quirino Highway, C3 Road, Congressional Road Ext. Valenzuela: Pan Philippine Highway, Tamaraw Hill Road Mandaluyong: Shaw Boulevard; Boni Ave. Pasig: C. Raymundo Ave., Medical City Bus Stop Las Pinas: Alabang Zapote Road, Marcos Alvarez Ave. Makati: Pasong Tamo, JP Rizal, and strategic areas in Magallanes Village Taguig: Lawton Avenue, Philippine Army, McKinley Road, and Forbes Park Paranaque: East Service Road, Dona Soledad Ave., Dr. A. Santos Ave. Strategic areas along SLEX and NLEX Globe has earlier activated 5G in major central business districts such as Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Makati, Rockwell Center, and Ortigas, as well as in strategic areas along EDSA and C5. “This milestone also comes shortly after the announcement of the availability of mobile 5G to its Globe Prepaid and TM customers who have 5G devices and are within 5G areas,” Globe said. “With this expansion, more customers can experience faster speeds that they can use to stream movies and TV shows at the highest-quality; lower latency to play immersive online games with fewer lags; and clearest resolution for video chats,” it said. Businesses, learning institutions, hospitals, and other related industries in Metro Manila can also take advantage of the benefits of 5G’s next level connectivity, according to the telco. “To experience 5G to the fullest, customers have to make sure that they are on a Globe LTE or TM LTE sim paired with a 5G-enabled mobile device,” Globe said. In 2019, Globe became the first telco in Southeast Asia to launch 5G when it introduced its AirFiber broadband service for Globe at Home subscribers. The service is now available to all Globe Platinum, Postpaid, and Prepaid customers.
