Globe Telecom Inc. said it rolled out its fifth-generation (5G) fixed wireless broadband service commercially to consumers select areas in Rizal, Cavite and Bulacan.
The Ayala-led telco said households residing in Greenpark in Cainta, Rizal; Woodland Hills in Carmona, Cavite; Carissa Homes 2A and 2B and Palmera Homes in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan can now apply for a Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G plan.
This move aims to further realize the company’s vision of providing Internet access to 2 million homes by 2020 with high-speed, reliable and secure connectivity.
Martha Sazon, Globe senior vice president and head of Broadband Business said that Globe is starting to make the Globe At Home Air FIber 5G available in more areas to reach more homes.
“Our aim for 5G deployment is to serve more customers, especially in areas where we encounter challenges in rolling out fiber-optic cable, through providing technology that enables them for the future,” she added.
Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G promises fiber-fast speeds and super-sized data allocation designed for powering intelligent devices for quality entertainment streaming, enhanced security systems, and low latency gaming experience at home. Plans currently offered are 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).
Sazon believes 5G technology will empower households, specifically starting families and the growing middle class families who deem internet connectivity a necessity for growth and learning.
Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G currently covers communities with 120-250 homes in selected areas in Metropolitan and Greater Manila with plans of rolling out in more areas soon. Last July, Globe also made 5G commercially available in Pasig City.
