Internet connectivity has become a necessity for many Filipino homes where a reliable access gives every member of the family many possibilities to shape their digital lifestyle. With this, Globe Broadband reinforces their commitment to provide connections through its line-up of offers launched at the recently held Wonderful World with Globe 12.
“During the first quarter of 2016, we announced that we will connect two million homes with fast Internet by the year 2020. We’ve made strides in expanding our reach to different key cities around the country and we are proud to be fulfilling our mission one city at a time,” said Barbie Dapul, Vice President of Globe Broadband Marketing.
At the start of the year, Globe Broadband transformed and powered Binondo, Manila to a “one digital city” using fiber technology. This was followed by a rollout to other key cities such as Quezon City, Cebu City, and Davao City. To complete an enriched home digital lifestyle, Globe Broadband also launched its new and improved customizable plans with 3x the speed and 3x the data allocation to transform homes into the ultimate entertainment hub.
For this wonderful time of the year, Globe Broadband gives its customers new traditions in family entertainment with engaging content plus a portfolio of devices to bundle it with.
Those who like to watch movies, TV shows and sports can use the faster broadband connection to enjoy content from Netflix, HOOQ, and NBA League Pass. Plan 1299 and up comes with 6 months free access to all three apps.

On the other hand, those looking for local favorites can watch Erik Matti’s On the Job mini-series, exclusively available on HOOQ, based on the award-winning film of the same title.

Kids can also join in on the fun with YouTube Kids on Globe Broadband. YouTube Kids, is a free app offering digital learning through engaging and educational content. Disney Channels Apps are also readily available for kids to access their favorite Disney Channel shows. Both apps can be viewed on your home’s TV with a Google Chromecast, a media streaming device that lets users cast and mirror their favorite shows, movies, music, and games to their TV.
Apart from Google Chromecast, Globe Broadband lets subscribers customize their broadband plan depending on their interests. They can choose from a vast array of devices such as an Apple TV, high-definition TV sets from Samsung and TCL, Bose speakers, or a Sony PlayStation 4.
To assist broadband users, Globe Broadband also launched Just So You Know (#JSYK), a series of online tutorials that educates customers on frequently asked questions on broadband to optimize their internet experience.
“We have definitely shifted to the digital age. The family now experiences new ways of doing things from watching their favorite series or listening to their type of music. This digital shift allows us to continue coming up with new ways to provide for our customer’s needs through a fully packed Broadband plan,” continues Dapul.
As Globe Broadband fulfills its promise of connecting two million homes by 2020, it positions itself at the forefront of this next level digital entertainment experience as the Filipino’s partner in giving them the ultimate digital lifestyle at home.
