Globe Telecom’s rollout of its fourth generation infrastructure through the combined technology of long term evolution (LTE) and high speed packet access plus (HSPA+) is fast gaining ground, as the telecommunications company activated more sites across the country.
Following aggressive rollout of LTE, the cutting-edge technology is now available in key cities in Metro Manila that include Makati City, Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig, Manila, Muntinlupa, San Juan and Las Pinas.
Whoa! Globe seems to have started showcasing their vast array of LTE(Long Term Evolution) compatible smartphones just recently. Handsome gadgets, if I may add.
Have you seen them? Don’t fret if you haven’t yet… I’ve got ya covered.
But first things first… for the benefit of those who don’t quite understand what LTE is or how it can radically transform one’s mobile surfing lifestyle, allow me to provide you with a quick and brief explanation of what Long Term Evolution is.
LTE has long been seen as the first advancement towards stronger, faster and more efficient 4G data networks. How fast? Verrrrrryyyy FAST! LTE offers wonderful advantages over our present 3G systems such as higher throughput, plug and play compatibility, and low latency. The technology also means Long Term Evolution can work on higher bandwidth networks without any loss of throughput.
Alright… by now you probably already have a better grasp of what LTE is. It is also understood that, just like 3G and 3G-compatible devices, in order to enjoy everything that LTE has to offer, one has to be using a smartphone that uses LTE technology as well.
No problemo. As promised, here they are… check out Globe’s impressive lineup of LTE-enabled phones:
All your rants about Globe Telecom’s intermittent and faulty network will be a thing of the past very soon.
How soon, you may be wondering?
Globe announced just recently that its $700-million network modernization program is already more than 50% complete. They are progressively rolling out ahead of schedule for change-out completion nationwide within the first quarter of 2013.
According to Globe Telecom President and CEO, Ernest Cu, unlike other transformation programs that involve merely upgrades, Globe is building a totally brand-new network… an infrastructure that is future-proof – built to provide higher call quality, pervasive 3G and 4G coverage, and faster mobile internet experience.
As I’ve said earlier… it’s happening. You may not like how things are right now. But sticking it out, in my opinion, is your best option. It’s gonna be worth the wait.
Would you rather jump ship now and regret switching in the end? Didn’t think so.
Earlier today, Globe Telecom launched its latest product: The Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini!
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.
