The world’s most sought after mobile technology is finally here in the Philippines as Globe successfully completed the first-ever international 5G video call in the country with the 5G mobile network of AIS Thailand.

The call, which lasted more than three minutes, was made recently after Globe received the technical call from AIS when the mobile operator tested its own 5G network in Bangkok last Friday, February 21.

Alan Garchitorena, Globe Director for Technology Enablement & Services Planning, took the call from Hui Weng Cheong, President of AIS, as the Bangkok-based company ran its first 5G video call test.

The call went on without a glitch with zero lag and practically ushered in a new era of communication for both Globe and AIS.

“It went very smoothly. Superb. My appreciation for the support from the Globe Team,” Hui said after the call was made.

AIS has just officially acquired its new 5G spectrum the same day it made the call to Globe. 5G is an extremely powerful technology and promises amazing new features.

For his part, Mr. Garchitorena said that this is solid proof of Globe’s readiness to roll out mobile 5G in the country. “This technology will deliver a new era of digital use for AR, VR, Internet of Things (IoT), industrial applications and much more in the Philippines,” he added.

Globe launched its 5G Fixed Wireless access in June last year. Globe is targeting to fire up 5G sites in key areas such as central business districts (CBD) within the year.
