Globe Telecom has finally confirmed that all iPhone 5 postpaid subscribers will get access to their LTE network at no additional charge. This means that if you are currently on a MySuperSurf data plan, you can get LTE for free.
In press release sent to us by Globe, they have finally lived up to their commitment of free unlimited LTE to their existing subscribers. They first announced this back in December.
