Our commitment to ensure customers are connected

How are you helping your customers who may not be able to pay their bills on time?

We've extended the bill payment due dates from March 15 to May 15 and ensured that customers enjoyed continuous service despite not being able to pay their bills on time.

As the due date extension comes to a close, we are releasing the Globe Installment Payment Program to help ease the worries of our customers about bill payment. Enrollment is extended until August 31. To learn more, visit https://www.globe.com.ph/installment.html 

What happens if your customers exceed their monthly spending limit?

We are giving our Postpaid and Platinum customers an option to suspend their monthly spending limit. We are sending out instructions via SMS on how to do it and our customers are given up to five days to respond from the time they receive the text message.

Together with BPI and Ayala Corp., we also donated P5 million to the Philippine Red Cross to address critical needs in public health protection of those affected by COVID-19.

GCash has, likewise, initiated a #FightCOVID19 donation drive for the following: Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF), Philippine Red Cross (PRC), World Vision, UP Medical Foundation, PGH Foundation, Inc., ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, and Ayala Foundation.

Our employees are also helping raise P10 million for medicine, protection gears, food, salaries of those who cannot go to work, and other daily needs of the people who are spending hours outside to protect and serve their fellowmen. #OneGlobeVsCOVID.

Our support for the Public Sector

How do you counter fake news circulating about the virus and the COVID-19 related cybersecurity threats?

We provide our customers free access (no data charges) to the websites of the Department of Health (https://www.doh.gov.ph/) and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (http://www.ndrrmc.gov.ph/) and the Philippine Information Agency (https://pia.gov.ph/).

We also continuously remind the public to be aware of phishing emails and malicious campaigns taking advantage of the COVID-19 situation to steal money and personal or corporate information, as well as infect computers.

Do you provide free public Internet service?

To help our frontliners—doctors, nurses, medical personnel, and health workers—and even patients and their loved ones, we are providing free GoWiFi internet access not only to leading hospitals in Metro Manila but to strategic medical institutions in key cities nationwide. The general public can also have access to GoWiFi at select supermarkets nationwide and at Terminals 1-3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Safeguards in place to protect our employees

How do you protect your people on the field?

For our Home Broadband service, we ensure the overall safety and well-being of our installers and repairmen through the implementation of stringent health check protocols. This is also to safeguard our customers who need quality connectivity at home amidst government and private sector policies that enforce work from home and class suspensions to prevent the further spread of the disease.

Health and safety measures undertaken by all Globe at Home installers and repairmen begin before deployment, consisting of the following:

  • They must pass a series of health checks such as a body temperature of less than 37.8°C, no signs of cough or cold, and no difficulty in breathing or pain in the throat and chest area.
  • Installers must also disclose if they have gotten in touch with anyone who has displayed any of the aforementioned symptoms, or has come from a country affected with COVID-19.
  • Before leaving for deployment, installers must also pass hand wash, alcohol and water stations to stay clean and hydrated.

Do you provide any financial and other assistance to your employees and your extended workforce?

For the safety, health, and well-being of our employees and their families, we provide the following:

  • Regular salary
  • Early release of bonuses/incentives
  • Additional 5 GB broadband data allowance for telecommuting
  • Online COVID-19 Information Center and Helpdesk
  • Internal Employee Health Check Monitoring Process

We also provide food allowance, transportation, accommodation, insurance, and medical expense assistance to our skeletal workforce as they hold the fort of our operations to ensure that the network continues to stay up.

And to ensure that no one is left behind, we have earmarked P270 million in financial support for our vendor partners and retail stores support staff affected by the nationwide closure of Globe Stores.

Our business continuity plan

What are the risks and impact of COVID-19 on your business operations?

The impact of COVID-19 to our overall business and network rollout is continuously being assessed since its magnitude will be highly dependent on the duration of the community quarantine.

With regards to our supply chain, we are in constant conversations with our vendors and suppliers to ensure necessary options are available to the company to address any potential supply gaps.

What are the measures you have undertaken or will undertake to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 on your employees and vendor partners?

We have taken precautionary measures beginning January 24, 2020 to ensure a COVID-19-free workplace for all Globe offices nationwide through the following initiatives:

  • Thermal scanning at all entry points in various Globe Offices, nationwide;
  • Deployment of hand sanitizers throughout common areas in Globe premises;
  • Adjustment of our policies to restrict travel to high-risk countries;
  • Mandatory visitor disclosure and screening; and
  • Continuing awareness drives to keep all Globe employees well informed.

Immediately after the Department of Health’s (DOH) announcement of Alert Level Code Red Sublevel 1 on March 7, 2020, tighter policies and plans were implemented to further protect our people and our business:

  • Conducted sanitation of all floors in our corporate offices;
  • Discontinued acceptance of guests in offices and technical sites nationwide;
  • Shifted to virtual and online meetings; and
  • Partnered with major health providers to screen, admit, and provide care for Globe employees who are to exhibit flu-like symptoms while inside office premises.

We also implemented full work-from-home operations with critical skeletal force in place beginning March 16, 2020.

Are Globe Stores still operational?

Starting May 18, 2020, selected Globe stores have reopened to cater to our customers' mobile and internet needs. View the latest list of stores and their operating hours and accepted transactions.

The status of our network

How does the virus impact your network operations?

Our operations continue to run normally. We have our critical skeletal force making sure that we are 100% operational. Our field engineers are provided with vehicles, tools and personal protective equipment to allow them to do service works if necessary. We have also established multiple network monitoring centers to ensure continuous monitoring of network health. 

With many people now working and studying at home, how are you preparing your network?

We have been augmenting capacity in our network progressively in residential areas and areas of demand. We are continuously monitoring the network performance to take any actions as deemed necessary.

How capable is your network in handling the increase in traffic?

Since the enhanced community quarantine took effect on March 17, we have seen a shift of traffic from central business districts to residential areas. We have also observed an increase in traffic. Our key network performance indicators are in good health.
