The Philippines is the first country in Southeast Asia to experience fifth generation (5G) postpaid service with the launch of Globe Telecom’s Home Air Fiber 5G.
The 5G service makes use of fixed location wireless radios instead of fiber optic cables. The 5G technology enables the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) for today’s intelligent homes that require faster and more secure service.
Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu announced the rollout of the new 5G postpaid service in a media statement.
“The arrival of 5G has caused excitement in the global world of telecommunications. Today, we made a crucial step in fulfilling our goal of connecting more Filipino homes, and our vision of bringing the first-world Internet to the Philippines,” Cu said.
The Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G postpaid service has the following features:
- fiber-like speeds up to 100Mbps
- super-sized data packages of up to 2 terabytes (initially available in select areas in Pasig, Cavite, and Bulacan)
Cu said that the Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G will reinforce the efforts of achieving the company’s goal to connect two million homes by 2020.
The Filipino telecommunications company’s commercial 5G fixed wireless broadband internet service will start servicing subscribers by July 2019.
