Globe Telecom of the Philippines has reportedly expanded the footprint of its 4G LTE network, the Manila Standard Today reports. The country’s second largest cellco by subscribers, Globe Telecom is understood to have extended the network to selected areas of Makati, Manila, Pasig, Quezon City, Taguig, Muntinlupa, Mandaluyong, Cebu City, Davao City and Boracay. The operator, meanwhile, has noted that it expects the rollout of its fourth-generation services to support revenue growth in 2013, with Globe Telecom president and CEO Ernest Chu cited as saying: ‘We are rolling out additional fibre-optic capacity in order to support our growing 4G LTE-HSPA+ service. Thus, we can easily cater to more mobile data traffic when demand is there. We expect this endeavour to help generate revenue support this year.’
