Globe on track to roll out 2-M broadband connections

Globe Telecom is on track to hit its target of rolling out two million home broadband with speed of at least 10 mbps by 2020 in line with its commitment to improve fixed internet in the country.
Unlike its mobile internet rollout, Globe strategy for home broadband is to provide reliable and high speed fixed internet one area at a time.  
The company said that to date, over 260,000 home broadband lines have already been deployed.
Globe president and chief executive officer Ernest Cu said: “We are catching up on the deployment of infrastructure for home broadband, after focusing on mobile for many years.
It is accelerating home broadband deployment and plans to roll out 400,000 ultra-fast broadband lines by end 2017.  Progressive rollouts will be done within the next 3 years until 2020 to serve at least 2 million homes.”
He emphasized that Globe intends to redefine home broadband experience for Filipinos, making it the preferred brand of choice for homes just as the brand has grown to be the most pervasive for mobile.
“The quality difference and improvements on fixed internet will really be felt, we will transform every home using a Globe broadband into an ultimate entertainment hub as our customers enjoy high speed connection plus an unbeatable portfolio of exclusive content,” said Cu.
The official expressed his desire for government to step in and do the necessary action to enable the telecommunications industry.
The company could have rolled out more lines this year had it not been for the permitting and right of way challenges that telcos are always facing at the local government level.
“With our recent campaigns, our local government are beginning to hear us, and to some extent, some are more responsive than others. As we move forward, we have every reason to be optimistic that we can improve the quality of home broadband in as many areas as possible,” he said.
