Globe is giving consumers something to be happy about as its network upgrades are showing positive changes especially when it comes to better viewing experience of videos on mobile.

Globe’s array of content partners including premium online streaming platforms like Netflix, iflix, HBO GO; social media networks such as YouTube; online shopping sites; and mobile games usher in a whole new entertainment experience, made more relevant at this time when most Filipinos are staying at home.

The improvements in Globe’s network performance, especially to mobile video experience, is a result of its aggressive full-scale network upgrades, which includes fast tracking of cell site builds, switching to 4G/LTE in all its cell sites and towers, and rolling out fiber lines nationwide.

Independent mobile analytics firm Opensignal’s report likewise said that Globe registered a 32.7% improvement score in Mobile Video Experience on 3G and 4G network based on a year-on-year user data comparison as of end-June 2020.

This is impressively higher than the worldwide average improvement of 14% among 180 telco operators worldwide. Mobile Video Experience measures the quality of real-world video streams, an important metric among Filipinos who are heavy social media users. Furthermore, Opensignal cited that Globe’s Latency Experience improved significantly by 15.8 mobile speed (ms) between Q3 2018 and the last quarter of 2019. Latency Experience measures the typical delay a user experiences when connecting across an operator’s networks.

Globe has already been recognized as one of the most improved telcos in the world in terms of video experience worldwide, based on its user data comparison between the first half of 2019 and 2020.

“Video content consumption has been heightened because of the pandemic as people stay productive at home while seeking to be entertained. We will continuously improve our propositions through partnerships that offer amazing content and immersive experiences for our customers, and always encourage them to only consume legal content online,” said Jil Bausa-Go, Globe VP for Get Entertained Tribe.

Globe supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG), particularly UNSDG No. 9 which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. Globe is committed to upholding the 10 United Nations Global Compact principles and 10 UN SDGs. For more information visit www.globe.com.ph
