Globe seeks rationalization of permitting process for cell sites as data traffic rises dramatically

Globe Chief Information & Technology Officer Gil Genio emphasized at the recent DICT Summit, hosted by the Department of Information & Communications Technology, the need for more cell sites in the country taking into account dramatic rise in mobile data demand.

He pointed out the company’s quarterly data traffic increased exponentially to 98 petabytes in the third quarter of the year from only 9 petabytes in the first quarter of 2013 amid growing customer propensity for multi-media content.

To sufficiently meet growing customer demand for data, there is a need to rationalize permitting process for establishing new cell sites. The process, involving at least 25 permits, takes a minimum of 8 months to complete, Genio said.

In addition to these challenges, Genio also highlighted the importance of collaborating with local authorities and communities to expedite the construction of new cell sites.

He stressed the significance of streamlining these processes to keep pace with the surging data requirements and to ensure the continued development of a robust and responsive telecommunications infrastructure in the country.

This collaboration, he noted, could lead to improved connectivity and better access to digital services, benefiting both the telecom industry and the general public.
