Globe Telecom urged its subscribers to upgrade its subscriber identification module cards to 4G for better data experience.
“There are a lot of things you can do with your phone other than call, text, and take pictures. We want all our customers to experience the wonders of data connectivity so they too can learn, get entertained, socialize, shop, or even work within the confines of their own homes,” said Globe president and chief executive Ernest Cu.
“They can only do that with 4G and other more advanced mobile technologies,” he said.
4G opens up a wide range of experiences using the internet and other mobile applications.
For 2G/3G mobile users, shifting to 4G would mean being able to enjoy the rich variety of content available on the web or the mobile apps.
Through the internet, anyone can watch their favorite movies and dramas, shop from online stores, conduct bank transactions, play online games, learn how to cook or play musical instruments, video chat with loved ones, upload photos on social media sites, use navigational tools, among a myriad of other activities.
Globe said to ensure that no one is left behind when it comes to mobile technology and services, it is giving its customers a way to have better connectivity and data experience by helping them shift to 4G without any cost.
To check if a SIM card is 4G-capable, Globe postpaid and prepaid customers only need to text SIM CHECK to 8080.
Those who are still using 2G/3G SIM may bring their SIMs to the nearest Globe stores to upgrade to 4G SIM for free.
Postpaid mobile customers can also request to have their SIMs changed via the GlobeOne App.
Globe said it continuously upgrades and expands its network and services in response to the growing demand for better data connectivity in different parts of the country.
