Zambales official credits Globe for town’s improved economic standing
Vice Mayor Kristan Rommel Misola says the presence of new Globe cell sites proved to be the push and support they needed to deal with the challenges of the new normal and for their municipality to remain relevant and competitive. “Sa pagdami kasi ng mga cell site nagkaroon ng mas magandang opportunity ang mga tao lalo na sa business. Yung social media, yun online selling at yung communication ng mga information sa update sa pandemya at kung ano ang nangyayari sa ating bayan at bansa ay nakatulong ng malaki, (Additional cell sites give good opportunity to the people especially those who have business. Social media, online selling and communication of updates on the pandemic and what’s happening in our country help us a lot)” Misola explains. Misola adds Sta. Cruz’s move to support Globe’s network expansion proved to be the right decision especially now that connectivity has become an essential need, not only in their municipality but in the whole country as well. A stable internet connection enabled his people to remain connected, updated and competitive despite its location. For small municipalities to keep pace with the more advanced ones, they need to invest and have a telecommunication infrastructure. Globe recently installed a new tower in Sta. Cruz. “Napakalaking tulong ng mga cell site lalo sa mga negosyante at mga maliliit na mga entrepreneur. Kung wala social media, tiyak mahihirapan silang mailatag o maipakita sa lahat ang kanilang mga produkto. Kung wala mga cell site paano nila magagawa ito? Napakahirap kung walang signal o cell site dito sa bayan (The cell sites help us a lot especially businessmen and small entrepreneurs. If social media doens’t exist, we are pretty sure that our businessmen will have a hard time promoting their products and goods. If there are no cell sites to give us signal, they can’t sell their products),” Misola adds.
