'Fastest, More Advanced' Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi Provides Essential Connectivity in New Normal
The pandemic has changed the way we live and how we go about our daily activities, forcing a digital shift that will be the norm moving forward.
Even before the nationwide lockdowns, Globe ensured that a steady and reliable internet connection has been made more accessible through the Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi, now equipped with a faster and more advanced LTE modem.
Globe At Home’s LTE-Advanced modem is two times faster than other Globe Prepaid modems, and is equipped with boosters, enabled by carrier aggregation capabilities, for a more reliable, higher-speed internet connection that is easy to set up.
“Globe’s home prepaid WiFi sets the bar for broadband not only because of its larger capacity, but more importantly for its affordability and accessibility. It is a great choice for families because it is shareable, easy to load, and comes in a wide range of budget-friendly options,” said Darius Delgado, Vice President and Head of Broadband Business at Globe.
Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi is available in several promo offers packed with freebies depending on the subscriber’s budget.
“In order to sustain the productivity of every member of the family, Globe made sure that affordable HomeWATCH and HomeSURF offers come with a bigger data allocation that is more than sufficient for today’s demands,” Delgado added.
Customers can avail of or order Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi kits via www.shop.globe.com.ph, the nearest Globe store, or through various channels and promos using the Globe At Home, GCash and GlobeOne apps.
Globe’s continuous efforts to improve its network performance every year have resulted in more affordable and faster internet services for its broadband customers.
