Globe customers in Baler, Aurora are now experiencing significant improvements in their call, SMS and data browsing services after upgrading to 5G-ready 4G LTE SIM cards from the old 3G SIMs.
By using the 5G ready 4G LTE SIM cards, customers are now taking advantage of Globe’s network migration to 4G LTE - the new standard of mobile data, in the capital town of Aurora province.
“Mabagal po internet noong nakaraan, pero ngayon mas malakas na po yung signal. Hindi ako nagsisisi. Magpalit na po kayo ng SIM para ma-experience nilang lahat ang malaking diperensya,” said Novelith Erjas, a Globe customer in Baler as she urged kababayans to make the switch now.
Erjas, who is also a student, added the improved internet connectivity gave her opportunities to accomplish more compared to her 3G SIM card use. She also admitted that it took her sometime to make the upgrade which she regretted.
“Noong una ayoko pang magpalit ng SIM. Pero nung nalaman ko na mas maganda yung 4G, na-appreciate ko na. Mas na-e-enjoy na ngayon ang pag i-internet at hindi na hassle sa signal. Dati ang akala ko mahina ang signal ng Globe. Yun pala kailangan ko pa lang magpalit, from 3G to 4G LTE,” she said.
Globe has made 13 site upgrades in four towns of Aurora province namely Baler, Dipaculao, Maria Aurora and San Luis in the past few months and is looking to modernize its entire network in the province.
