5G is the latest wireless internet connectivity that promises faster speeds, higher bandwidth, and more stable internet connections compared to 4G.
5G is now accessible in 81% of Cebu City; 68% of Boracay Island; 67% of Bacolod City; and 53% of Iloilo City.

5G’s unbeatable speeds and almost real-time latency opens a world of countless possibilities that Filipinos can look forward to as more and more areas are transformed into 5G-powered smart cities, delivering new experiences in retail, entertainment, gaming and healthcare.
