Francisco Motors Debunks Accusations That Modern PUVs Increase COVID-19 Transmission

"What worsens virus transmission are incompetence of vehicle personnel, complacency of those in-charge of the vehicles and negligence of passengers."

As the Philippines adjusts to the new normal brought on by the community quarantine (GCQ), Globe is meeting the increasing demand for reliable internet with the expansion of its 5G coverage.

“The pandemic transformed how we do everything, from how we manage businesses to how we learn, how we take care of our health, how we socialize, how we entertain ourselves. A powerful internet connection is important at this time, and Globe is ready to enable our subscribers to succeed during these trying times with the rollout of this highly-anticipated technology,” says Albert De Larrazabal, Globe’s Chief Commercial Officer

Globe Platinum and Postpaid subscribers will get to experience the cutting-edge technology of 5G in select locations in Makati and Bonifacio Global City in July 2020. It will be made progressively accessible to more areas in Metro Manila and to Prepaid customers.

5G is the next generation of wireless internet connectivity and has the potential to revolutionize the way Filipinos live. With 5G connectivity, customers can enjoy less lags when going online. They can load a webpage in a second, stream the latest movies and TV shows in ultra HD quality, play augmented reality online games with lower latency, and stay connected with loved ones through crystal clear calls and video chats.

This technology can also pave the way for a highly digitized future with smart cities, intelligent homes, self-driving vehicles, and energy grids. This web of interlaced systems can empower Filipinos to do more with greater convenience, which can be fully achieved with an increased number of infrastructures to support 5G technology – given its narrower coverage that assures its optimum performance.

Customers will not be charged for connecting to the 5G network. Usage will be deducted from the customer’s Postpaid or Platinum plans data wallet allocation. Connecting to 5G is easy, subscribers just need a 5G-capable smartphone compatible with Globe and must be within the 5G covered area. They can use their current Globe LTE sims, which are already 5G-enabled—making the shift to this new technology quick and hassle-free. To date, Globe offers a range of 5G capable devices such as Samsung S20, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro. Globe is also expected to introduce more affordable 5G capable mobile phones soon.

Globe is the first mobile operator to offer a commercial 5G network in Southeast Asia after it introduced AirFiber for its broadband customers last year. The connection allowed AirFiber subscribers to enjoy reliable and fiber-fast speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Earlier this year, Globe Platinum introduced the very first 5G-capable mobile phone.

Globe is set to change the way Filipinos go online with first-world connectivity.
