Globe enhances connectivity at the tourist paradise of Siargao in Surigao del Norte as it fires up three cell sites in the municipalities of General Luna, Pilar, and Dapa. The move paves the way for more tourists from different parts of the country and the world to learn about Siargao as well as promotes financial inclusion and business growth in the island.
Siargao, known for its unique island vibe, has drawn foreign and local tourists in the past years and has contributed to the boom of tourism-related establishments such as hotels, restaurants and travel operators, among others.
“We know that a lot of people in Siargao are looking for better connectivity. The topography of Siargao is quite challenging — a large area, quite hilly, and the population is spread out so its very expensive to put up a cell site in Siargao. However we also know its potential given the beauty of the place and its commitment to sustainable tourism,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.
He added: “With these three new cell sites, we bring data services to the island so that tourists can share their Siargao experience to the rest of the world. We are laying down fiber so that businesses can have better internet connection to aid them in the digitalization of their operations. (PR)
