5G technology is one of the ways to get over the economic impacts of the pandemic and other challenges our customers get to experience every day. By making it more pervasive and more accessible, they will realize its potential and promise of better mobile experience, said Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, Globe Chief Commercial Officer.

According to local telco Globe, the company has been consistently and aggressively ramping up its 5G presence in the country to provide faster speeds with higher bandwidth that is more stable than 4G. Currently, the company's coverage is now present in 1,183 sites in Metro Manila and 467 locations in Visayas and Mindanao.

On the other hand, rival Smart recently claimed that its 5G network coverage is now accessible to more than 3,000 sites in the country.

The country's official third telco DITO has yet to fire up its 5G services.
