Recognizing the important role played by internet access and digital literacy in socio-economic development, Globe is taking significant steps to bridge the digital divide in the Philippines through its latest solutions, Globe At Home GFiber Prepaid.
GFiber Prepaid specifically designed to provide fast and reliable internet service to every Filipino home at an affordable cost, using fiber connectivity.
As digital connectivity becomes more prevalent in modern life, not all communities have equal access to its advantages. As of 2020, a joint study by Thinking Machines and the Asian Development Bank reveals a significant internet speed disparity at 21.03 Mbps between the richest and poorest cities in the country.
Additionally, connecting to fiber can be expensive for customers, who must also contend with lock-in periods, potential bill shocks, and documentary requirements associated with postpaid plans.
In addition, slow internet speeds result in increased costs and more time spent online, making online access unaffordable and impractical for many Filipino families. This lack of reliable high-speed internet hinders opportunities for remote work, distance learning, and e-commerce.
Globe is committed to breaking down these barriers by offering fast, reliable, and affordable solutions with flexible payment terms. With GFiber Prepaid, households can enjoy fiber-speed internet through various flexible plan options, which are not tied to lock-in periods. Customers can load based on their browsing needs and capabilities.
GFiber Prepaid aims to expand the country’s fiber market and empower Filipino families with a stable internet connection. For an initial payment of only P1,499, customers get seven days of unlimited internet, including installation. On-demand UNLIMITED promos, such as GFiberSURF299 for seven days, GFiberSURF549 for 15 days, and GFiberSURF999 for 30 days, are also available.
The new offer provides a complete digital experience through the GlobeOne app, where customers can access information on the latest promotions, bill payments, customer support, and account management, among others. features.
To further increase its reach, Globe has partnered with GCash to offer a Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) option through GCredit and GGives, ensuring that fast internet connection is accessible to more Filipino families.
