Globe launches 4G mobile


Being a blogger and a digital media/social marketing specialist, I need a wireless internet access everywhere I go.

Though there are many mobile connection to choose from, I’m a bit confused which one is better. Most of these connections rely on 3G and 2G technology. Until, I read an article about Globe’s announcement of it’s newest 4G mobile technology. Globe promises that it will provide its subscribers high speed broadband access with the added convenience of full mobility using its 4G mobile network.

Globe’s 4G technology utilizes the global standard HSPA+ (Evolved High-Speed Packet Access), which allows for download speeds of up to 21 megabits per second (Mbps) with upgradeability for 84Mbps.

“Globe is again pioneering innovation in the Philippines. With the uptake in broadband both on mobile and through other devices, customers want faster broadband in more places. Globe is continuously looking for ways to improve our network infrastructure to meet the demand for quality services. In 2009, we were the first carrier to launch 4G through our WiMax network. Today, we extend our leadership by taking 4G mobile. With our high speed broadband rollout, Globe will continue to lead in customer experience by giving our subscribers better, faster, and more reliable broadband connections on their phone, laptop, PC or tablet,” says Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom.

Susbribers across Metro Manila, which includes Marikina, Quezon City, Makati, Pasay, Las Pinas, Taguig and the City of Manila can now enjoy Globe 4G mobile technology. By end-2011, Globe expects to increase its 4G presence dramatically with continued expansion planned into 2012.

So what are the things you can possibly do with 4G connectivity:

  • A 4G connection will give you faster speeds while video streaming, accessing email, downloading/uploading, and more. 4G is twice as fast as 3G, you can get everything done almost instantly with this type of Internet connection.
  • Because this Internet offers so much bandwidth, you will be able to multi-task away, perfect for a blogger like me. =)
  • With Globe’s 4G connection, you get Internet on the go. You can enjoy seamless connection anywhere you go. (Globe will be expanding the 4G network till 2012). Also, Globe will complement its 4G launch with a suite of new multimedia services, 4G devices and offers for customers.
  • Play online games without delay

Now, I have decided to upgrade my current mobile internet service with Globe’s 4G wireless mobile Internet.

  1. Interesting to know. Maybe that’s why they had poor service for the past couple of months, because they were upgrading. 🙂

  2. Good to know. With the few times I’ve tried Globe 3G, I was not satisfied. I hope that 4G will be noticeably faster than 3G.

  3. I’ve been a globe subscriber since i had my first mobile phone. Good to know they have this kind of feature upgrade for broadband and mobile services.
