Globe Telecom Inc. said it will invest more on digital infrastructure and services amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are investing billions of pesos to connect the rest of the public to the digital world to enable things like working and learning from home and yet, there are so many obstacles along the way,” said Globe president and chief executive Ernest Cu.
“I think it is really incumbent upon our local officials to provide telecom infrastructure to their constituents. Telco is like water or power. It is something that people need and want,” he said.
Globe is spending over P60 billion on infrastructure builds to increase capacity and network upgrades around the country. “I think the cities of the future will be fully powered by digital. Filipinos are becoming more open to trying new things. Opportunities in digital are happening and it’s something that we are also exploring,” he said during a recent interview with other captains of the industry.
