Globe gives users a budget-friendly alternative solution to have access to connectivity
I have been Globe broadband subscriber since March 2007. That is 10 years already. I am happy with the services but I wished there was Fibr in our area. I know some of you might be looking out for alternative internet service providers. If Globe At Home is still not fully operational in your area, the Globe At Home Prepaid Home WIFI is a budget-friendly alternative. Globe At Home Prepaid Home WiFi is only P1,999!
There are many advantages:
No installation – Pay a one-time fee of P1,999, plug the device in,
No monthly fees – and pay for data that you want to consume, whenever you want.
Free 10 GB data – Your Globe Prepaid Home Wifi comes with free 10GB worth of data so you can surf, and watch videos at home instantly.
Reload conveniently – reload by purchasing GoSurf variant at Globe prepaid reloading stations
The Home Prepaid Wifi has 50% Stronger WiFi. One can enjoy stronger connections versus traditional mobile WiFi.
Get your own Prepaid Home WiFi at Globe stores nationwide or via hotline at (02) 730 1010.
I just checked my location and now I know there is fibr in my area. That is what I like about getting updates from Globe. Want to know if your area has Globe Broadband?
Knowing the status of broadband connectivity in a certain area requires customers to go through the hotline or make the effort of visiting the nearest store. Globe At Home now makes it more convenient for its potential customers as it introduces a more hassle-free way of checking broadband serviceability right on any internet-enabled device.
By just typing the address, you can finally check possible connectivity through the Globe At Home Broadband Finder via https://checkavailability.globe.com.ph/. Anyone can use this tool to verify Internet coverage in their location using their smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
“Our mission to connect more homes includes providing this kind of convenience to our potential customers. We want to make it easier for people to check if we are in their area. It saves them the time and effort to wait for feedback on serviceability. With this innovation, we intend to show how much we have expanded and how we are continuing to widen our reach to connect more homes across the country,” says Globe Senior Vice President for Broadband Business, Martha Sazon.
On https://checkavailability.globe.com.ph/, you just need to type their preferred location or even a specific address then click on the Check Availability button. It will then show if Globe At Home is available in the area or not. If it is, the Globe At Home Broadband Finder will also display its recommended broadband plans based on the area.
Recently, Globe At Home launched its new broadband plans with more affordable options and faster speeds. Starting at Plan P1299, customers already get 10 Mbps speeds and 100 GB of data. It can be bundled with any entertainment device such as Smart TVs, Google Chromecast, and Apple TV, among others.
Globe At Home’s portfolio of entertainment content also sets up every home with the next level of family entertainment through free access to apps such as Netflix, HOOQ, or NBA league pass on Plan 1299 and up.
Globe creates new holiday traditions for the most wonderful time of the year
I got to visit Globe’s latest iconic store at the Bonifacio Global City and was amazed at all the new stuff in there.
During the event, I got to see the latest innovations and services. Even if we live in a digital lifestyle, we can still allow old traditions to be relived and made more exciting. Globe did just that. Turn them into new ones by using the latest digital trends and let everyone create new memories for a lifetime, with the people who matter most.
“Christmas is all about spreading cheer and creating new memories. We are happy to be part of every Filipino family’s celebration and enable them to create new traditions that will last them for many more holiday seasons to come,” says Globe President and CEO, Ernest Cu.
Let’s see the new holiday traditions:
Personalized healthcare for your family
Health is a bag full of wealth. Globe in partnership with Unilab brings fresh opportunities to ensure the wellness of your family no matter the distance. For Overseas Filipinos, they can purchase RiteMed medicines at Philippine prices and have it delivered to their dependents back home. Unilab leverages on the telco’s existing distribution points in Hong Kong that Filipinos can readily call or visit for their orders. Unilab’s retail partner MedExpress ensures the fulfillment of the orders. Globe also provides the international hotline support for its overseas customers.
Convenience and health goes hand in hand with KonsultaMD, a 24/7 online health consultation service manned by licensed Filipino doctors. It’s accessible anytime, and you get legitimate answers to all your health questions. The comfort of knowing that your family’s health concerns can be answered anytime throughout the day or night, gives you peace of mind this holiday season. Overseas Filipinos can call up to 5 Globe numbers, unlimited for only HK $129 for 30 days together with unlimited access to Filipino doctors for medical consultation.
Staying in touch is also made more memorable through e-Gifting. With SariSariPH, Filipinos overseas can send e-gift cards via email and SMS to gift their families with special treats.
Holiday binge-watching right on your mobile
Globe gives new ways to enjoy mobile content from sports, entertainment, games and music. NBA for one, with its partnership with Twitter gives customers access to exclusive programs, streamed live on the social media site. Globe is the first advertising partner in Asia for the NBA Live programs that will exclusively air on Twitter.
Watching movies and series are made more convenient too with Globe Studios and HOOQ. This collaboration brings the most-awaited, star-studded series, On The Job (OTJ). A spin-off from the original On The Job blockbuster hit by Erik Matti, the OTJ crime thriller series will be available on HOOQ early 2017.
Globe also introduces its first step in offering digital learning to millions of its customers by supporting YouTube Kids — a family-friendly app built with parents and children in mind. Families can now enjoy YouTube Kids with seamless connection from Globe, whether at home or on-the-go. You can bond with your kids and family right in the comforts of your own home.
On gaming, the partnership with Globe and Niantic has resulted to 340 new Pokestops in select Globe reload stations and 241 gyms in Globe stores. Both companies continue to work closely to give customers an even richer Pokemon Go experience. Some of the things to look forward to include exciting Pokemon merchandise that will be available in Globe stores in time for Christmas.
Finally, Globe also welcomes its latest partner, Tribe. Tribe currently offers live and on-demand content with a wide selection of Korean entertainment shows from KBS world and tvN, anime shows from Aniplus, LIVE e-Sports events via eGG channel, and action and Asian Thriller programs from KIX and Thrill channels. The brand aims to go beyond being just a platform for fans to watch their shows by creating immersive experiences for the different communities through events, contests, and viewing parties for like-minded individuals to connect. Tribe is now available for a 30-day free trial and for just P30/week or P69/month afterwards.

I get my iPhone every two years. This time around, I will get the bigger iPhone 7 plus. Globe customers can start reserving their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus via www.globe.com.ph/iPhone7. The new smartphones will be available through the Globe myLifestyle plans that already come with unlimited texts and calls to Globe/TM, mobile data and free access to content such as Netflix, Disney Channel Apps, HOOQ, and NBA, among others.
They say the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the best, most advanced iPhone ever, featuring an all-new advanced camera system, dust and water resistant design, stereo speaker system and the A10 Fusion chip which is the most powerful chip on any smartphone while delivering the best battery life ever in an iPhone.

The 2016-17 National Basketball Association (NBA) season tips off is on. I am sure NBA fans will be excited to know that Globe Telecom have updated the NBA app user experience so you can watch it live on your mobile device. I tweeted on twitter that I was rooting for the San Francisco Warriors while watching the games at the NBA Cafe .
Someone asked me on twitter how she could watch it live. I told her to use the NBA app. Globe customers subscribing to any NBA promo will experience a simpler registration process without the need to input PIN codes to access NBA content on their mobile devices. Once customers complete the promo registration, users will receive a link via SMS directing to the NBA app to verify their mobile number. Once authenticated, fans can immediately enjoy NBA games and programming on their mobile devices.
Globe worked closely with the NBA, so they could develop a streamlined registration process, free of inputting tedious PIN codes. This way, one can easily access NBA games and content anytime.
Avid NBA fans can now catch their favorite team games and game specials through their Globe Broadband plan that comes with six months free access to NBA LEAGUE PASS. On mobile, NBA promos are also available in three service offerings: NBA499 for a 30-day premium access, NBA299 for 7 days, and NBA50 for a 24-hour access.
There is more. The NBA app provides millions of fans access to NBA LEAGUE PASS that features premium content via the Video Vault—a collection of archived NBA videos and TV shows including Hardwood Classics and NBA Inside Stuff. Fans can experience these in HD video with games having an option for home and away game commentary and integrated game stats modules.
When fans select any game through NBA LEAGUE PASS, NBA Mobile View will appear as an additional viewing option. Home and Away “traditional” views will remain. Developed by the NBA and Turner Sports through their NBA Digital partnership, the new offering was created by installing new cameras in all 29 NBA arenas with each game having a designated producer specifically for NBA Mobile View.
The NBA app will surely excite sport fans out there.
