Globe has successfully deployed its Cell Site on Wheels (COW) in two designated COVID-19 quarantine areas in Metro Manila.
Frontliners – doctors, nurses and other medical health workers – as well as patients now have a better and wider network coverage at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila and at the Philippine International Commercial Complex Forum in Pasay City.
The COW is an equipment installed to improve Globe’s mobile signal within the area. Normally it takes at least two weeks to put up the COW but due to the high demand and the importance of the two sites in the government efforts to stop the spread of the global health emergency, efforts were made during the Holy Week to set up the COW as soon as possible.
With its installation, medical staff and patients accommodated at the RMS and PICC Forum will have the capability to remain connected and be updated on the latest government efforts against the pandemic.
“We all know the importance of connectivity in these difficult times especially for our kababayans and their families who are dealing with COVID-19. Hopefully, by enhancing indoor coverage in selected quarantine facilities, we can help them communicate and get in touch with each other faster and better,” said Peter Tan, Globe SVP for Network Operations.
The two sites are among the government-designated areas for persons who are suspected, probable or positive with COVID-19.
Globe also had to put up a COW installation within the vicinity of ULTRA in Pasig City and will be operational in the next few days for additional capacity in the area.
