Globe’s offering of the first commercial 5G network in Southeast Asia through its super-sized wireless broadband data plans called Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G is now initially available to consumers located at Barangay Buting in Pasig City.
According to Martha Sazon, the telco’s SVP and Head of Broadband Business, the company has started connecting Filipino homes with Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G. Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G plans are being offered at P1,899 per month for up to 20Mbps, P2,499 for up to 50Mbps, and P2,899 for up to 100Mbps, all with data allocation of 2-terabytes (TB).
It takes roughly 35 seconds for the total amount of time it would take to download a 3 GB movie on a 5G network in regular, not peak, speeds. 5G networks are up to 20 times faster than other networks and with 5G’s greater speed and reliability, online video streaming or gaming will be a breeze.
Sazon also noted that the Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G will be available in 24 more areas on a progressive basis to fully ensure stability of the service. For September, Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G will also be touching down at Greenpark in Cainta, Rizal; Woodland Hills in Carmona, Cavite; and Carissa Homes 2A and 2B, Palmera Homes in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
“We are now transforming more Filipino households to be digitally connected using 5G technology especially in areas where we encounter challenges in rolling out fiber-optic cable,” shared Sazon. . “The Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G doesn’t only deliver fiber-like speeds but also prepares the home for the future by powering intelligent devices for better entertainment and security systems,” she added.
Globe’s 5G network uses a fiber backbone that enables it to deliver fiber-fast speeds of up to 100 Mbps but the 5G plans are data-only where only the existing Globe At Home LTE subscriptions with a wireless landline can retain their existing line. Additionally, installation fees will be waived for 5G subscriptions.
Globe’s 5G service is available to new and existing wireless customers from areas covered by the service, especially the consumers residing in Barangay Buting in Pasig City who are interested to avail Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G Plans.
