We may be third world, but we Filipinos are very agile. We may be affected by challenges but we are always ready to adapt to new experiences. Despite the physical, economic, and mental decay that the pandemic brought us, many have successfully stayed afloat. Mostly, their success stories give thanks to digital means that remain viable new platforms, services, bundles and plans. So Globe Telecom has launched more life-enabling offers for all its customers for a better 2021.
What Are Globe’s Life-Enabling Offers?
Globe knows the challenges of its customers in the current state of the pandemic. To support them, the company launched first-to-market innovations that redefine telco experiences. These life-enabling offders will definitely help subscribers to win each day.

More advanced technologies are also in place such as 5G and fiber plus pervasive network improvements.” Ms. Cabreira revealed this during the first-ever Globe Innovation Fest.
Globe stands as the industry pioneer and leader in 5G technology in the Philippines. Recently, Globe’s 5G roaming services in the UAE and Thailand was launched. They are set to continue with upcoming launches across Asia, Middle East, North America, and several countries in Europe.

Data as Currency Concept
With the internet as a new essential, data has become an indispensable part of our daily lives.
Globe pioneers the way customers use and extend the value of data by introducing data as currency in the Philippines.
This novel concept applies to any Globe product, such as mobile, Home Prepaid WiFi, or Reward for loyalty.
Called GBs to Points, customers can soon start converting their unused GBs to Globe Rewards points via the Globe One App.
For Prepaid, the conversion is 1GB = 1 Rewards Point. For Postpaid, on the other hand, 1GB = 10 Rewards points. Meanwhile for Home Prepaid WiFi, 3GBs = 3 Rewards.
Customers will find that Gigabytes or GBs may be converted into points at any time within the promo validity or before the plan’s cut off date.
