Globe Business, the enterprise information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Globe Telecom, and the City Government of Tuguegarao have entered into a strategic partnership to provide fast and reliable internet to the people of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.


The Tuguegarao City Government has signed up for Globe Business’ Direct Internet which allows the local government unit (LGU) to offer its constituents fast and reliable internet access supported by a robust and broad international and domestic network.

Aside from the need to have fast and reliable internet connectivity to effectively cater to the communication needs of all offices in the City Hall, the project also aims to extend its reach to Public Schools, specifically the students and teachers,” said Tuguegarao City Mayor Atty. Jefferson Soriano.


He added: “We commend Globe Telecom, specifically Globe Business, for partnering with us in making this project a reality. We expect the same solid support  and service delivery for the implementation of the future projects that will benefit the people of Tuguegarao.”

Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business, said: “Globe Business is thrilled and privileged to have been chosen by the City of Tuguegarao. We are very excited for the partnership as this pushes us to strive for excellence and commit to our purpose to help build our nation.”

Globe Business Direct Internet allows enterprises to maintain a direct and secure connection between offices for data, voice, and video application needs. It also offers an excellent level of support to make sure that clients get secure and dedicated connectivity.

This partnership with the City of Tuguegarao is also in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 9, which emphasizes the need for investment in infrastructure and innovation, being identified as crucial drivers of economic growth and development.

Globe Business is leading the way in encouraging LGUs to adopt the integration of ICT and governance as a means of improving the delivery of government services and exchange of information. The said initiative supports Globe Telecom’s drive to transform the Philippines into a digital nation by instilling the importance of e-governance to government offices.
