Globe to introduce 5G Globe At Home Service by Q2 2019




Just as Smart starts testing 5G with the opening of their Technolab, Globe also launched their own campaign to bring the next generation network in the Philippines.

The Telecom company is hard at work to be able to bring 5G services commercially to the Philippines by mid-2019. The next generation network technology is expected to accelerate the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) locally.


 

“We have been preparing our network for sometime now with our existing vendor partners, including Huawei Technologies. We are happy to bring the Philippines in line with other countries that are early adopters of 5G.  Once again, we stay true to our commitment to bring first-world internet in the country,” Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu.

5G would also enable Globe to be able to use Air Fiber technology that will allow the deployment of fixed wireless broadbands to home and business clients. Apart from that, the technology is expected to allow the company to deploy fiber optic cables without the long and arduous process of getting multiple permits from local government units.

“Air Fiber internet, which makes use of fixed location wireless radios instead of fiber, could provide speeds ranging from 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps,” Cu said.

    Korek ka dyan. Bago kayo mag 5G, ayusin nyo muna 3G/4G coverage nyo. Sobrang walang signal or very slow lalo na sa mga residential areas ng Metro Manila pa lang yan ah. Agree ako dyan, bulok!

    Air Fibr nga means wireless, may mali ata dito.

    • Zen Estacio says:

      Globe is planning to use both Air Fibr and Optic cables in their implementation. Though we’ll never know for sure yet as the service won’t arrive til 2019.

    Haaay you’re insulting the intelligence of filipinos, yung basic service nga hindi nyo mabigay efficiently yung 5g pa?!? harapan namang pambobola yan, ang efficient kayo e sa paniningil ng bayad

    I don’t have high hopes for this. My Globe 4G speeds are like the dial-up speeds I had in the US in the 90s. Total joke.

  7. RanRan says:

    Unusable parin with 800mb cap. Paupgrade pa kuno di na naman stable ang speed. Lipag nalang sa mislatel baka ok ang service.

  8. Roland Feliciano says:

    Globe broadband service really sucks. My internet service connection keeps dropping off. Calling Globe Customer Care would fix the issue but after 2-3 hours, the service would revert back to abnormal. Globe is throttling back the speed to favor those powers-that-be at the mercy of household users.
