Globe Plans Wireless Expansion
The operator, which already has 3,000 sites up and running, is also looking for more 3G spectrum from the Philippines government, according to the report.
And while it looks to boost its 3G and WiMax capabilities, Globe, which has been building up its Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT) assets during the past year, is set to take part in the LTE trials of parent Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. (SingTel) (OTC: SGTJY). (See APAC Operators Commit to LTE, Globe Upgrades Prepay With NSN, Acision Powers FMC Billing for Globe, and NSN Upgrades Globe.)
