How to Choose the Right Globe Broadband Plan For Your Needs

On the hunt for the right broadband plan? Here are the questions to ask and a useful cheat sheet to help you make the right choice!



In this digital age, internet connection is a necessity for every home. Connecting with loved ones, getting through that work-from-home workload and getting a little R&R to the sound of our favorite shows and movies are all quarantine essentials made possible with the right internet plan.


Enter: Globe’s broadband plans. But before we get into the nitty-gritty of it, what exactly is broadband anyway?


Broadband is the most popular form of internet access. This is no surprise as broadband provides high-speed internet connection. Remember traditional dial-up? This is a major upgrade. Broadband comes in different types, with the two most common being Fiber and wireless. 


Globe’s Go UNLI broadband plans utilize Fiber optic technology, whereas Go Big plans offer wireless broadband connection. Both plans allow you to stream, play and browse with plans that best fit your budget and internet needs. 


To find the best Globe At Home plan for you, here are some questions to ask yourself:


What type of connection do you prefer?

Should you go for a wired or wireless connection? Both connections provide reliable internet and will pass a speed test with flying colors. They do, however, have pros and cons that you need to take into consideration.  


While a wired connection can offer superior broadband speed, it requires installation. The Go UNLI Plan 1699 offers an affordable Fiber connection that comes with unli data and boasts 20 Mbps. You may, however, have to wait a few weeks to have your connection installed.  


However, a wireless connection gives you instant WiFi via a modem that’s ready to use out of the box. For example, the Go Big Plan 1699 comes with a ready-to-use modem that provides a 20 Mbps wireless connection. 


How much data do you expect to consume?

On the one hand, a plan with a data cap can be more cost-efficient if your online habits or requirements are light—think sending emails, online research or casual surfing. On the other hand, if you’re a heavy streamer or gamer, or you download often, you will benefit more from an unlimited connection. 


For instance, the Xtreme WiFi Plan 999 maxes out at 140GB at 42 Mbps, making it an ideal pick for everyday use. Meanwhile, the Go UNLI Plan 1699 has an unlimited connection clocking in at 30Mbps.


How much is your monthly internet budget?

Generally, larger access to data will cost you more. That said, good internet connection need not be too expensive. For a more affordable plan, the Xtreme WiFi Plan 999 provides a wireless connection with a 140GB data allocation. 


For budgets below P2000, the Go Big Plan 1699 and Go UNLI Plan 1899 offer a bigger data cap of 600GB and are inclusive of access to streaming services and free landline calls.


How many devices are you planning to connect?

Your household can help determine the type of plan you need to get. If you live alone, you may want to pay for a connection that accommodates one to two devices. Meanwhile, a family will need to consider a plan that covers five or more devices. 


The Go Big Plan LTE 1299 is perfect for single users, capping data at 150GB. For a fully-connected home, the Go Big Plan 1899  provides 600GB worth of data for five or more devices.


What is your ideal maximum browsing speed?

Loading time can become your worst nightmare if your plan doesn’t account for it. The Xtreme WiFi 1499 provides a 42 Mbps connection at a more affordable rate. Whereas, the Go UNLI Plan 4999 sits on the other side of the spectrum with a whopping 500 Mbps connection speed. 


For more intensive needs, the Go UNLI Plan 9499 reaches a maximum of 1 Gbps with unlimited data allocation and a Fiber connection. 


Are you a heavy video or game streamer?

If streaming is one of your top priorities, consider broadband plans that better match your consumption. Go Big Plan LTE 1299 can give you 190 hours-worth of binge-watching shows and movies in HD. 


If you prefer unlimited, high-quality streaming experience, the Go UNLI Plan 1899 and Go UNLI Plan 2899 may be better options for you.


Do you do video conferences often?

Do you rely on Zoom and other video conferencing apps for work? You may need an internet plan that can handle the number of calls you may need to take and provide a reliable connection that won’t fail. Both Go UNLI Plan 1899 and Go UNLI Plan 2899 can accommodate unlimited video calls and utilize a steady Fiber connection.


How patient are you with downloads?

For those with a more active lifestyle, faster download speeds mean less time waiting for episodes to finish downloading and more time doing other exciting things. To put it in perspective, the Go UNLI Plan 1899 averages two minutes per episode, while the  Go UNLI Plan 2899 can go as fast as 30 seconds per episode.


Are you looking for specific freebies or exclusive deals?

Getting the most out of your plan includes considering the additional freebies and exclusive offers tied with it. All of the latest Globe At Home broadband plans include free three months access to iWant and Amazon Prime Video streaming services, as well as a free landline with unlimited calls to Globe and TM.
