Globe Telecom, Aboitiz InfraCapital, and Frontier Tower Associates Philippines signed a memorandum of understanding on July 2nd 2019 to improve connectivity in Cebu, Davao, and Olongapo. The MOU, in support of the common tower initiatives of the Department of Information and Communications Technology will explore the possibility of leasing build-to-suit sites, towers, and other passive telecommunications infrastructure and facilities.

Globe President and CEO Mr Ernest Cu said its common tower agreement with Aboitiz-Frontier Towers will focus on improving connectivity in Cebu, Davao, and Olongapo by building and deploying the needed telco infrastructure in the most efficient way. He said that “Tower sharing is a means to address the demand for better internet experience. Our collaboration with tower experts will enable us to fast track the construction of cell sites and towers in unserved and underserved areas as well as congested urban centers.”

Operating Officer Cosette V. Ms Canilao said this collaboration will augment the existing coverage and capacity of Globe. She added that the passive infrastructure, which includes towers and support structures among others, will also be made available to other telecommunications service providers in the Philippines.

Ms Canilao said that “Our partnership with Globe represents a significant first step in our effort to ramp up the country’s connectivity through infrastructure. Through the new common towers that will be built, Aboitiz InfraCapital, in partnership with FTAP, aims to build the right infrastructure that will advance the digitalization of businesses and communities.”
