Globe readies Malacañang, Senate and Congress for 5G upgrades

This will effectively expand coverage, increase capacity and activate state-of-the-art 5G technology at Kalayaan Hall, Mabini Hall, and the Presidential Guest House in Malacañang; the Senate and GSIS buildings in the Senate; and in the Main, North, South, House of Representatives Annex, Ramon V. Mitra and the Legislative Library Buildings in the Lower House.

Globe is planning to upgrade its infrastructure to further improve its indoor coverage solutions in several buildings in Malacañang Palace, Senate, and the House of Representatives.

This will effectively expand coverage, increase capacity and activate state-of-the-art 5G technology at Kalayaan Hall, Mabini Hall, and the Presidential Guest House in Malacañang; the Senate and GSIS buildings in the Senate; and in the Main, North, South, House of Representatives Annex, Ramon V. Mitra and the Legislative Library Buildings in the Lower House.

“These buildings house key branches of our government which in turn provide basic and immediate services to our nation. By upgrading our indoor solutions, our new system will increase and augment capacity and extend coverage to provide wider service access inside these offices.  Moreover, these important government offices will be 5G ready so internet services will be much faster and better. These efforts will help our Chief Executive, his cabinet, and our lawmakers to communicate and update executive and legislative efforts that will best serve the people,” said Joel Agustin, Globe Senior Vice President for Program Delivery, Network Technical Group.

Globe has submitted its design and upgrade proposals to Malacañang, Senate, and the House of Representatives.  The proposals are expected to be finalized and approved within the month. Once the project takes off, the modernization efforts are scheduled to take at least eight to 16 weeks.

Globe has laid out a 3-pronged strategy for its network upgrades and expansion, which includes aggressive cell site builds; upgrading its cell sites to 4G/LTE using many different frequencies; and fast-tracking the fiberization of Filipino homes nationwide.

Globe supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically UNSDG No. 9 which emphasizes the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. Globe is committed to upholding the 10 United Nations Global Compact principles and 10 UN SDGs.
