On top of its aggressive provincial roll- outs, Globe Telecom Inc. has expanded its Quezon City network, putting up 32 new towers and doing 635 site upgrades in the past three months.

“Quezon City remains as one of the highly-urbanized cities, not only in Metro Manila, but also in the country,” noted Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.

“It’s where a big number of our customers are and their need for connectivity is always on the rise. Our current expansion is our way of meeting this demand,” he explained.

“Hopefully, these installations will pave the way for more tower builds for the rest of the year and in the first half of 2021.” 

The new  installations cover big and densely populated barangays in Quezon City to include Tandang Sora, Matandang Balara, Pinyahan, Ramon Magsaysay, Santa Lucia, Balong Bato, Batasan Hills, Commonwealth, Dona Josefa, Escopa IV, Gulod, Kamuning, Loyola Heights, N.S. Amoranto and Nagkaisang Nayon.

The telco rolled out new networks in North Fairview, Paltok, Quirino 2-A, San Agustin, San Isidro, Sangandaan, Santa Cruz, Santo Nino, Tatalon and in UP Campus in Diliman.

Globe  also made 635 site upgrades to support its LTE capacity and  provide more coverage.

Quezon City has a land area of 64.17 square miles with 142 barangays divided into six Congressional districts with a population of 3 million.
