Fiber Infrastructure Development

To expand fiber infrastructure, in line with high-speed connectivity technologies, Globe said it has also deployed over 199,000 fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) lines during the year 2023, while utilising its existing fiber inventory.

"This effort is part of the company's broader strategy to cater to the underserved prepaid fiber market, further strengthening its leadership in the Philippine telecom industry," Globe said earlier in March while reporting double-digit Postpaid Fiber service growth in 2023.

"Our priorities remain consistent and focused on delivering network builds and optimising network services across all regions and territories to expand and strengthen our coverage across the country," Globe said.

The telco said it spent USD 1.3 billion in capex in 2023, of which 91 percent was used to boost data infrastructure as demand for data connectivity steadily increased.
