Globe Telecom emerged as the fastest 5G mobile network for the first quarter of the year within three major areas in Mindanao, Philippines, according to the Ookla Speedtest Intelligence Q1 2023 data.

Cities including Cagayan de Oro recorded a median download speed of 159.298 Mbps, Misamis Oriental with 157.795 Mbps and Zamboanga with 99.916 Mbps. Globe's 5G outdoor coverage has achieved 90.2 percent in key cities in Mindanao.

Globe, a 5G pioneer in the country, continues contributing to the 5G technology adoption goal in the Philippines while leading off the next generation of digital innovation. Compared to 4G, this wireless connectivity speeds up to 100 times faster and has higher bandwidth and steadier internet connection.

Globe has always been committed to economic growth and development under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

"The importance of 5G connectivity cannot be overstated. It can unlock countless opportunities for growth and development, not just for businesses but also for individuals and communities. 5G can bring new education and health services to remote areas, create new job opportunities, and spur economic development in the region. This is why Globe is committed to bringing 5G connectivity all over the Philippines so Filipinos anywhere can have access to the same opportunities and services," Globe Chief Transformation and Customer Experience Officer Rebecca Eclipse said.

During the first quarter of 2023, Globe stationed 66 new 5G sites in 74 cities and towns, resulting in the expansion of its 5G outdoor coverage to 97.21% in the National Capital Region and a total of 90.28% in Visayas and Mindanao.

As of March 2023, Globe has registered 4.3 million devices in its 5G network.
