The update was shared by Rina Azcuna-Siongco, Head of Get Entertained Tribe at Globe during the OTT (Over the Top) Summit 2022 organized by the Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA). She said on the topic "How will 5G Change The Game for Asian Streaming Services?" that the deployment of 5G technology complements Globe's broadband rollout to deliver the so-called "#1stWorldNetwork" to customers.

One of the ways we've used 5G is for areas where it's a bit more challenging to deploy fixed internet or broadband. We need to do it through 5G instead. That way, we are able to deliver things like better video streaming and gaming experiences, Siongco said.

Globe added that the 5G technology could also allow users to enjoy video streaming and gaming with low latency and high bandwidth. 5G could also open up new use cases to enrich people's lifestyles.

At the moment, Globe's 5G network now covers National Capital Region's (NCR) population and 84 percent in Visayas and Mindanao. The company also said that it is doubling its efforts to roll out more 5G cell sites and in-building solutions to reach more areas this year.

Just in the first quarter of 2022, Globe has fired up 380 new 5G sites in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Batangas, Bulacan, Davao, Cebu, Misamis Oriental, and Iloilo.

Video streaming and gaming require low latency and high bandwidth to be enjoyed thoroughly.  5G is the latest wireless technology that can offer such benefits, opening up new use cases that could enrich people’s lifestyles.
