Globe 5G delivers three times faster speed than mobile WiFi

Faster and stronger connections anywhere

Globe Telecom’s (Globe) 5G speed is now three times faster than mobile WiFi according to Ookla Speedtest Intelligence Data for Q1 2022. The telco brand has logged a 5G median download speed of 121.29 Mbps versus 42.95 Mbps by all fixed ISPs in the Philippines in Q1 2022.

Ookla used the statistical validation approach called Hsu’s Multiple Comparisons with the Best (MCB) procedure to identify how fast Globe’s 5G median download speeds are in comparison with mobile WiFi speeds.

“We are committed to bring better mobile experiences for our customers not only in terms of speed but more importantly how we extend life essential services through our robust network.  We realize that our customers’ needs have changed and we are there to meet these changes in a big way.  For us to do this, we continue to invest in the latest mobile technologies like 5G,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.

In 2021, Globe Telecom has spent PHP 92.8 billion to activate over 2,000 5G outdoor sites and in-building solutions, build 1,407 new cell towers, upgrade 22,300 mobile sites, and install 1.4 million fiber-to-the-home lines.

And for this year, the digital solutions provider has invested PHP 89 billion to build new cell sites, upgrade existing sites to 4G/LTE, accelerate 5G connectivity rollout, and ramp up the fiber connection of homes nationwide.
