Property developers embed connectivity in new projects

Four property developers are exploring ways to maintain a competitive edge and partnered with Globe Telecom to offer internet-ready unit models and ensure reliable connectivity for residents.

The partnership plans to establish additional built-in broadband and dedicated spaces for telco infrastructure in housing developments.

“We envision that when a customer steps into a property, he is ready to connect just like electricity and water are readily available.

And it’s great we’ve gotten this far in terms of our existing partner developers because, like Globe, they are also customer-centric. We are no longer just talking to a blank wall,” Globe president and CEO Ernest Cu said.

He added that Globe is ready to work with developers to embed connectivity in their projects.

Last month, Globe gathered top executives from Globe’s property partners ASEANA Holdings Inc., Cebu Landmasters Inc., Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC), and the Victor Consunji Development Corp. (VCDC), to support the initiative that rolls out immediate and reliable connectivity in housing developments. The plan includes condominiums and villages.

Globe currently has 18 property developer partners, with 200 developments covering nearly a hundred thousand units fitted with built-in broadband through these collaborations.

Cu said it makes internet connectivity instantly available to residents upon move-in, a “differentiator” among players in the property market.
