I was there to witness what Globe claims to be the “fastest ever” broadband stick with download speeds of up to 10Mbps. I came to the event not knowing how impressive this device would be or if it would, in any way, fall short of all the hype (more about that later).
Notable personalities from traditional and social media were there to grace the occasion as well as press people and lifestyle celebrities.
The presentation was a spectacle of sights and sounds… a constant glow of “Globe blue” enveloped the entire Ballroom A of the Heritage Hotel. The explosive sound of the Lamborghini’s exhaust could be heard over the sound system as it was looped throughout the evening. A huge video wall was installed on one side encompassing the entire area so no matter where you were, you’d be sure to have a decent view of what’s happening on-stage.
After a few minutes of mingling around and exchanging hellos, the program formally began… Enter sound effects… adrenaline-pumping music up… and cue dramatic lighting.
