Sun Cellular intensifies 3G network coverage nationwide!
At the prime of social media and mobile data connectivity, renowned telecommunications Sun Cellular has intensified its ongoing expansion program and upgraded 3G support facilities to further boost its data coverage nationwide.
“A significant part of Sun Cellular’s large-scale expansion program this year lies on the optimization and augmentation of 3G network facilities to support its continuously growing nationwide base,” says Ricky Peña, SVP for Postpaid, Broadband, New Business and Marketing Services of Sun Cellular. “As we take part in fuelling up the social media and smartphone revolution, we also work on guaranteeing a robust carrier-consumer support for all these,” he adds.
Further to its current nationwide scope, Sun has reported a coverage boost of almost 400 new 3G areas outside the National Capital Region (NCR), along various provinces of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Close to 50 new 3G sites have also been activated in the NCR.
“Now, more of our kababayans from as far north as Apayao or even as far down south as Tawi-Tawi can enjoy a reliable and best-value access to the latest in broadband and data technology, through Sun Broadband and through our flagship data services,” Peña shares.
Aside from working to provide a better service for its on-the-go 3G subscribers, Peña also revealed that the network has also rolled out more In-Building Solutions and high gain antennae to ensure strong signal for data users indoors. He added that Sun is likewise continuing its network upgrade for increased capacity in NCR where the demand for Sun Broadband’s services is highest.
“Even through the active lifestyle of our ‘netizens’ and mobile data users, we also make sure to ground them well with strong and stable indoor connection – for the home, the office or even schools and commercial establishments,” Peña adds.
Reporting a double-digit 3G growth for the first half of this year, Sun Cellular endeavours to keep up its pace with the introduction of more ground-breaking innovations and value-for-money services. One of these is the recently launched Sun Broadband Group Plans, a first-in-the-market broadband offering which features multiple lines with shared internet hours under just a single account.
