As more Filipinos embrace doing things digitally, from the way they learn to the way they make a living, the clamour for better internet connectivity is stronger than ever. The desire to serve this need is what propels Globe to bring internet connectivity, particularly the latest 5G technology, to more Filipinos.
Back in February, Globe introduced 5G to its most elite set of customers, Globe Platinum. Shortly after, the said technology was extended to all Globe Postpaid customers. And, starting August 24, Globe Prepaid and TM customers are now able to access Globe’s 5G network in areas like Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Makati CBD, Rockwell Center, Ortigas CBD, and strategic areas along EDSA and C5. All these customers need to do is to ensure they are on a Globe LTE or TM LTE sim and have a 5G-enabled mobile phone. No additional fees will be charged to enjoy this lightning-fast connection.
“As the Philippines is largely a Prepaid market, we are thrilled to be the first telecom to expand the 5G service to them. With the vision of bringing the next generation of connectivity to all, Globe Prepaid and TM customers have now been enabled to enjoy the 5G service. And, with the goal of making high speed internet accessible to as many Filipinos as possible, we will continue to broaden our 5G coverage and make 5G-enabled devices more accessible,” says Globe VP for Strategic Platforms and Partnerships Coco Domingo. “We envision a world of impossibilities made possible by Globe 5G.”
5G is the next generation of wireless internet connectivity. With the technology, users can stream movies and TV shows at the highest-quality; play immersive online games with fewer lags; and provide the clearest resolution for video chats.
In 2019, Globe became the first telco in Southeast Asia to launch 5G when it introduced it’s AirFiber broadband for Globe at Home subscribers. Shortly after, Globe unveiled the first 5G service for mobile and introduced the first 5G device in the country, followed by more affordable 5G-capable phones.
