Good news for Filipinos who love to stay online and experience a different kind of connectivity in today’s digital-obsessed world. Globe has officially launched Globe At Home Air Fiber, the fifth-generation (5G) fixed wireless broadband to fulfill the company’s goal of connecting more Filipino homes and realize its vision of bringing first-world Internet to the Philippines.

Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu led the announcement by sharing how they’ve accomplished this remarkable feat in the global world of telecommunications. 

"Prior to Air Fiber 5G, we have aggressively utilized fixed wireless solutions to connect more homes and businesses to the internet over airwaves. This strategy resulted in home broadband subscriber base increasing 55.1 percent to 1.7 million in the first three months of 2019 from 1.1 million in the same period in 2016," Cu said.

So what can Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G offer?

This 5G technology enables the use of Internet of Things (IoT) for today’s intelligent homes. This means three important things: faster Internet connection, more security, and lower latency enhanced by 5G’s fiber-like speeds up to 100Mbps and super-sized and packages of up to 2 terabytes. 

This means ultra-low lags whether you’re surfing the Internet, streaming movies or playing your favorite mobile games. It promises a digital experience that is more seamless, reliable and intuitive for the modern Filipino household.

Globe at Home Air Fiber 5G will be available to eligible customers in July 2019 in selected areas in Pasig, Cavite, and Bulacan. Globe will announce future locations. 

Plans come at P1899 per month for up to 20Mbps, P2499 for up to 50Mbps, and P2899 for up to 100Mbps. All come with up to 2TB data capacity.
