Globe Telecom using next-generation antennas to facilitate 4G acceleration and 5G evolution
Philippine’s carrier Globe Telecom Inc. announced it is using next-generation antennas to facilitate 4G acceleration and 5G evolution. The telco said it has completed the deployment of a new series of antennas that efficiently enables the acceleration of 4G and the evolution of 5G technology. Globe said that the antennas adopts enhanced multi-array modules, ultra-high integration architecture, and full-band technology. The deployment is seen to boost the company’s 4G and 5G network and ensure energy efficiency, Globe added.
Since the antenna is smaller than the traditional design, Globe said it makes installation easier and faster even on cell sites with limited space.
The technology combines different frequency bands and accommodate different generations of cellular technologies, including 5G.
It also minimizes feed loss and improves energy efficiency, which means Globe can maximize energy efficiencies and lower electricity utilization through antenna development and power consumption innovation.
Globe said the use of the latest technology is part of its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development.
Globe has earmarked P89 billion for 2022 capital expenditures to roll out more 5G sites and in-building solutions, upgrade cell towers to 4G LTE, add more 4G cell sites, and lay down fiber to the homes.
The company deployed 380 new 5G sites in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Batangas, Bulacan, Davao, Cebu, Misamis Oriental, and Iloilo in the first quarter.
Globe is innovating with its vendor partners on the latest technologies available to improve customer experience through efficient 4G/5G network deployment.

Globe Telecom, Inc. announced on Monday that it rolled out a total of 933 sites for its fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology in the first half of the year. “Globe’s 5G network outdoor coverage has reached nearly 97% of the National Capital Region and 86% of key cities in Visayas and Mindanao,” Globe said in an e-mailed statement. 5G technology offers lower latency, higher bandwidth, and more reliable internet connections than 4G.
At the end of June, about 2.7 million devices were connected to Globe’s 5G network, it noted. “Globe is also accelerating its 5G roaming rollout to more countries in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe to bring seamless and world-class connectivity experience to travelers and overseas Filipino workers.” Meanwhile, DITO Telecommunity Corp. said it had achieved its 12- million-subscriber target. The third telco player “attained its 12 million subscriber base as of Aug. 26, 2022,” DITO said in a statement. The company attributed its subscriber growth to the speed of its network rollout. “With more than 5,500 cellular towers built, DITO Telecommunity has increased its coverage to over 600 cities and municipalities and has effectively breached its 70% population coverage target,” it said. DITO is also developing its 5G network. “Since we started our roll-out in 2019, we have been developing our 5G network,” DITO Chief Technology Officer Rodolfo D. Santiago said. At the same time, the company reported that its 5G Home Wifi continues to attract a growing number of users. “As of August 2022, the service has expanded to over 600 municipalities and cities in the greater Metro Manila area, providing speeds of up to 500 Mbps,” it said.
