Globe Telecom has achieved 73 percent increase in 5G traffic during the first half of 2022 as it continues to expand network coverage across the Philippines.
Majority of the data usage came from Metro Manila, which has close to full 5G coverage at nearly 97 percent. The top three towns with the highest number of 5G users in June 2022 were Quezon City, Makati and Manila.
Aside from Metro Manila, neighboring provinces are beginning to adopt 5G technology. Meycauayan, San Jose del Monte, and Santa Maria topped the list for Bulacan, while Bacoor, Imus, and Dasmarinas led in Cavite.
“We continue to build and advance our network infrastructure to accommodate new technologies like 5G. We are happy to see the rising adoption of 5G among our customers as this technology allows them to do more,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
Globe has put up over 900 5G sites in the first semester of 2022 on top of more than 2,000 sites and in-building solutions installed as of 2021, prioritizing areas identified with critical mass of early 5G adopters among active data users.
