Globe Telecom Inc. said over the weekend nearly half of its broadband subscribers were migrated from copper to fiber for better data experience.
The telecom unit of the Ayala Group said it had shifted over 40 percent of the targeted customers nationwide to the newer and higher speed network for free.
It said with the shift to fiber, broadband customers can enjoy faster speed, bigger data and more stable connection to address the growing demand for online connectivity at home as people turn to the internet for work, learning, entertainment and other essential needs.
“A good, stable and reliable internet connection is a critical need under the new normal. To meet our customers’ demands, we upgraded our network with superior technology for a better internet experience,” Globe vice president and head of broadband business Darius Delgado said.
“We are rolling out fiber to homes nationwide, and upgrading our customers to fiber connections for free to give them first world internet connectivity that they deserve,” he said.
