With tourism expected to rebound as government relaxes lockdown measures nationwide, Globe Telecom Inc. is fast-tracking the rollout of its 5G-capable in-building solutions (IBS) for indoor coverage in such as airports, shopping malls and stadiums.

Specifically, IBS extends and distributes cellular signals within a building or structure. So far,

Globe has rolled out 5G IBS at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals 1, 3, and 4, as well as the Newport Mall, Riverbank Mall, SM Mall of Asia Annex, office-retail W City Center, Philippine Arena, and New Clark City Athletic Stadium.

With the gradual re-opening of international and local destinations, the telco is ramping up its services in tourist-related facilities to provide better customer experience.

Globe has also activated 5G IBS at the House of Representatives complex, Legislative Library Building, Speaker Ramon V. Mitra Building, Marikina City Hall, MAAX, The Globe Tower, and 917Ventures office.

From January to September this year, Globe has completed 73 IBS to provide high-quality indoor coverage.

“Our network rollouts and upgrades remain on track,” according to Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.

Aside from ramping up the rollout of 4G LTE nationwide, Globe is expanding its 5G coverage.

5G is the latest mobile technology, offering ultra-low latency, greater bandwidth, and superior network reliability.

Globe has over 1,900 5G locations across the country as of end-September, mostly located in major urban centers.

Furthermore, it has 95 percent outdoor coverage in the National Capital Region.
