Globe Offers Innovative Solutions to enable Filipinos to discover more and be more

11 Jun

Globe gives its subscribers the power to live a full Internet-enabled lifestyle as it provides them a suite of solutions that complements different types of lifestyles.

Globe has been expanding its wireless broadband network to accommodate the increasing demand for the Internet. This year, Globe introduced Globe Broadband Tattoo and Globe Broadband Powered by WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access). In June, the company is launching hyper-speed plans via cutting-edge fiber-to-the-home technology.

For the energetic, young at heart customers who need to stay connected as they go through their busy day, Globe Broadband Tattoo is the solution. Globe has recently introduced three new USB modem designs to choose from, allowing customers to connect anywhere, with a stylish USB that reflects their hip and trendy lifestyle.

With Globe Broadband Tattoo, users can experience speeds of up to 2 Mbps, delivered via 3G and High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA), making activities like social networking, chatting, blogging, emailing, casual gaming, streaming music and movies much more enjoyable yet still affordable.

The Globe Broadband Tattoo Prepaid Kit comes with an initial five hours of free Internet time (prepaid load of PHP 100). Additional time is very affordable at only P5 per fifteen minutes on the Internet. Now subscribers can be online anytime, anywhere with Globe Broadband Tattoo.

For progressive family builders, who want to provide their family members – their children, spouse and themselves – all the opportunities that life and the internet has to offer, yet who could not because they live in areas that previously had few or no options for internet access, Globe has rolled out Globe Broadband Powered by WIMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access).

The WIMAX-based plans provide good value for money with unlimited internet access ideal for households with frequent daily usage. With a speed of up to 512kbps for only PHP795 per month, the entry plan is 33% faster and 25% more affordable than any other entry-level postpaid plans in the market. Because Globe is very confident in the connection quality it provides, the package comes with an aggressive money-back guarantee, allowing any subscriber to terminate their account with no termination fees, should they be unhappy with the connection.

WiMAX is a technology designed to enable the deployment of wireless broadband access as a cost-efficient alternative to cable and DSL. WIMAX also has improved reach and can cover distances greater than those covered by other wireless technologies like WiFi, CDMA, or 3G. Globe’s network is considered the first and biggest 2.5Ghz WiMAX (802.16e) broadband network in South East Asia.

Globe is first in the Philippines to commercially launch a consumer Wimax offering. Currently, Globe has around four thousand subscribers on its WiMAX network, after only a few weeks.

The service is initially available in selected areas in South Luzon, NCR, Visayas, and Mindanao. Globe continues to roll-out WiMAX sites, as a complement to its existing DSL and 3G internet facilities, to ensure the internet gets to every Filipino who needs it.

As part of its commitment to the local communities, Globe is providing WiMAX to selected local community government offices in Cavite, Batangas and CDO, providing the local governments a means to be more accessible to their constituents and vice versa. It is Globe’s hope that local communities serve their constituents more efficiently by being more accessible via the internet. Globe is also providing internet access via Wimax to selected schools and city hospitals in Mindanao as part of its thrust of community service to the marginalized areas.

Affordable Globe Broadband + PC bundle
In support of the company’s vision to provide Internet access to every Filipino home, Globe is also offering PC bundling packages with down payments as low as P999 starting June 12 in selected areas in South Luzon. The PC and Internet bundle comes in three plans: the Student Plan, the Busy Bee plan, and the Techie plan.

The Student plan is ideal for households with school-aged children who need a PC and an internet connection for research and other basic internet use such as social networking, surfing, email, chat and even casual games. The users make a small down payment of only PHP999, and a low monthly fee of only P1,472 per month for a bundled WIMAX connection and PC.

The Busy Bee plan is ideal for busy folks who regularly use the internet, and who need to take their work with them. Users pay a small down payment of PHP999, then pay a small monthly fee of P1,751 for a WiMAX connection and a net book. The busy bee has the option to buy a prepaid Globe Broadband Tattoo separately for only P1,895 for a truly mobile working experience.

The Techie plan is ideal for users who require a more powerful device to go with their high-speed internet connection. For a down payment of only PHP1,499 and a monthly fee of only P2,029, users get a WiMAX connection and a Neo laptop.

Hyper-Speed Globe Broadband
In June, Globe launches its newest and fastest plans that are ideal for people who run multiple internet applications at the same time, and who want the fastest available connection. Globe delivers this via fiber to the home. With speeds of up to 100 Mbps, this is the fastest Internet connection in the Philippines.

The entry plan is a hyper speed of 10Mbps, which comes at a very affordable monthly fee of only P3,995/mo. This already comes with a landline as well as a WiFi router, which allows a user to easily and wirelessly share his fast connection with others at home.

This hyper-speed plan will be available in Forbes Park starting June 15; by July it will be available in Makati Villages Bel-Air and Urdaneta, and in Serendra, Taguig.

With these offerings, Globe creates an array of tools that meet every connectivity need of its subscribers. With these offerings, Globe fulfills its promise to provide relevant and easy-to-use services that enrich the lives of Filipinos.
