Globe launches 5G-powered Globe At Home Air Fiber
Globe, in partnership with Huawei, has launched the first commercial 5G fixed wireless internet in SEA in the form of the Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G.
The Globe AT Home Air Fiber 5G postpaid offers fiber-like speeds up to 100Mbps and up to 2TB of the data package.
“The arrival of 5G has caused excitement in the global world of telecommunications. Today, we made a crucial step in fulfilling our goal of connecting more Filipino homes, and our vision of bringing first-world Internet to the Philippines,” said Ernest Cu, Globe CEO and President
It will be available to eligible customers (initially available in select areas in Pasig, Cavite, and Bulacan) on July 2019 for the following plans (all of which are up to 2TB data capacity):
- PHP 1899/month – up to 20Mbps
- PHP 2499/month – up to 50Mbps
- PHP 2899/month – up to 100Mbps
“Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G makes use of fixed location wireless radios instead of fiber optic cables which enables the company to go over the circuitous approval process of deploying a fiber optic cable – a task which proves to be arduous and involves securing multiple permits from local government units (LGUs),”
