Metro Manila is most problematic in the deployment of new cell sites with main issues ranging from social acceptability, neighbors’ opposition and homeowners associations’ restrictions due to aesthetic reasons, family conflicts and political bickering among local government officials, Globe Telecom said.

The telco industry has indicated that even with tower sharing, this will not help address the issue of speed and affordability since the cell site towers of both telcos are similarly located.
Globe Telecom secured a temporary restraining order from the court relating to a city resolution providing for the deactivation of a cell site located in Calvary Hills in Barangay Apas in Cebu.
