These days, an Internet connection is a necessity for most people and households. There is a reliability in the link made through a landline telephone that even the innovation brought by mobile phones and instant messaging services cannot replace. For an instance, connection through landlines has been proven stable and effective since it is not easily impaired by interferences and similar effects brought by unfavorable weather conditions that impact communication quality. With that in mind, Globe telecommunications’ [email protected] introduces a broadband bundle with free landline and unlimited landline to mobile calls to Globe and TM. This is on top of the free monthly service fee and free Globe NDD already offered before making it, as Globe executives claim, “the best value-for-money broadband bundle.” “Why ask people to pay double for two services--landline and home internet--that run on the same line?” says [email protected] Broadband head Jurist Gamban. Gamban explains how landline is a lifeline of any household as it serves as a reliable link between working parents and their children. “It connects them to the house help and the nannies who look after their kids. However, the cost of calling a mobile phone from a landline has prevented this lifeline to be used as often as necessary,” she shares. Depending on the subscriber’s needs, one may opt to avail of Plan P1,099 with a maximum speed of 1Mbps (WiMAX or DSL) up to Plan P19,999 that runs up to 100 Mbps (DSL only from 3Mbps and higher).

Meanwhile, existing [email protected] Broadband subscribers can get six months free unlicalls from their landline to any Globe/TM number by re-contracting for another six months or by paying an additional P99 per month. To represent Globe’s values in making onnection accessible to everyone especially for the whole family, breaking all sorts of barriers to communication, the network introduces Bamboo Mañalac as the new [email protected] ambassador. The former Rivermaya and Bamboo frontman was chosen to represent the brand as Globe sees him as someone who remained grounded and someone who is fearless to break barriers and take risks. “We need a real rockstar to embody the life of living without limits,” says Gamban. Despite being the private guy he is, especially when it comes to his family, Bamboo makes it a point to connect to his supporters and share his values to the rest of the world by using social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Formspring. Bamboo admits that he tweets every day using his Twitter handle @Bamboomusiclive which, as of this writing, already has 47,091 followers. “With technology like broadband, it becomes easier to empower people to move their world and do bigger things,” says Bamboo.

“I like what’s happening now. Today is a good time to be an artist where there are no limits and no restrictions to what you can do,” he adds. The musician expresses how honored he is to have been selected to be the face and voice of the brand as he believes in what [email protected] stands for, that greatness begins at home with the love and support of one’s family. [email protected] fuels my passion to dream bigger and do bigger things, to become an inspiration to others, and to take on new adventures in my musical journey,” says Bamboo.
