Globe, Converge embark on co-build projects in Bicol and Leyte

Globe and Converge embarked on its first joint project in 2022: a co-build spanning 137 kilometers from Pili, Camarines Sur, to Legazpi City, Albay.

Globe and Converge are spearheading co-build projects in the Bicol Region and Leyte Province to extend fiber optic networks and improve delivery of reliable connectivity, marking a key industry milestone in collaborative network expansion.

Through a partnership sealed in February 2022, Globe and Converge embarked on its first joint project in 2022: a co-build spanning 137 kilometers from Pili, Camarines Sur, to Legazpi City, Albay. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, this venture includes the deployment of state-of-the-art microduct solution underground facilities. This project wrapped up in  Q3 of 2022.

Following the success of the initial undertaking, a second co-build project in Leyte Province began in the third quarter of 2023. Spanning 209 kilometers to connect Tacloban and Maasin via Baybay, it is currently 80% complete and is expected to conclude by the third quarter of 2024.

These initiatives fall under Globe’s core fortification program, designed to achieve comprehensive enhancements, expand fiber network, upgrade network capacity, and accommodate Hyperscalers’ needs. Additionally, the program focuses on improving the resilience of the company’s Fiber Optic Core Backbone Network against the impacts of typhoons and other natural disasters.
