The pandemic rendered more Filipinos to opt for home broadband for their connectivity needs as it delivers better and faster connectivity to support work, learning, and entertainment at home.
Last September, Globe At Home has seen a 183% growth in the number of new customers who availed of broadband fiber plans compared to the same period the previous year. There was also a 69% rise in the number of Globe At Home subscribers who already use broadband fiber during the same time frame.
However, the current broadband infrastructure is entirely lacking in providing the quality of connectivity needed. For this reason, Globe is focusing its attention on upgrading to fiber-optic networks, which also includes Fiber to the Home (FTTH).
Globe is moving its subscribers to FTTH to enjoy high-speed Internet of up to 500 megabits per second (Mbps), which is ideal for keeping up with online activities mostly done at home. Globe had managed to migrate 60% of its targeted customers to the newer and higher speed network for free from January to September this year. The telco also covered its fiber rollouts through crucial areas in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas, Cebu, and Davao.
