Globe Telecom seeks support with Pilipinas Shell for the enhancement of the telecommunication provider’s network coverage by building more cell sites.
The partnership enables Globe to widen its network build amid insatiable demand for mobile services, particularly data. The collaboration also allows the leading telecommunications provider to establish GoWiFi hotspots in select Shell service stations, providing Shell customers with connectivity.
“This collaboration with Shell is breath of fresh air considering the enormous challenges we encounter in establishing network infrastructure such as cell sites. This also supports our commitment in continuing to build a robust and reliable network for our customers’ expanding data needs,” said Ernest Cu, Globe’s President & CEO.
The collaboration with Shell is expected to help ease the growing need for more telecommunication infrastructure necessary for Globe to provide sufficient coverage and capacities. For several years now, Globe has been aggressive seeking partnership with government institutions as well as with private sector organizations in a bid to expand its network reach.
“Our partnership with Globe is in line with our vision for nation-building that includes developing smarter cities and smarter infrastructures. We believe providing better connectivity is a vital component of progress,” President and CEO of Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) and Chairman of Shell Companies in the Philippines (SCiP), Cesar Romero, stated.
The two companies have identified 14 Shell service stations as target sites, most of which are located along major thoroughfares and major areas of converge, significantly improving mobile experience in surrounding areas.
