Dom­i­nant player Globe Tele­com Inc. an­nounced a price down­ward trend in broad­band ser­vices as it jacks up its net­work per­for­mances. Ac­cord­ing to Globe, the prices per gi­ga­byte (GB) of all Globe broad­band ser­vices such as Globe At Home Pre­paid WiFi, Globe At Home Post­paid VDSL, and Fiber and Globe at Home Post­paid LTE have gone down by more than 60 per­cent since 2016. Dar­ius Del­gado, head of Broad­band Busi­ness at Globe, said the de­cline in prices were at­trib­ut­able to the in­stal­la­tion of the lat­est tech­nolo­gies. “We are also ac­cel­er­at­ing the de­ploy­ment of fiber op­tic ca­bles to pro­vide a seam­less ex­pe­ri­ence for mul­ti­ple in­ter­net users in­side the home. As we widen our foot­print for broad­band, we like­wise make the ser­vices more af­ford­able. We have a whole range of broad­band of­fers suited to one’s bud­get and in­ter­net us­age,” Del­gado said. From as high as P26 per GB, the Globe At Home Post­paid LTE has gone down to P9 per GB over the last two years or a 65.3 per­cent price de­crease. Like­wise, Globe at Home Pre­paid WiFi cus­tomers now pay P9 per GB only from as high as P23 in 2017; P15 in 2018; and P10 in 2019 or a de­crease of 60.87 per­cent since 2017. Globe At Home wired cus­tomers, on the other hand, now have un­lim­ited data ac­cess com­pared with pay­ing up to P13 per GB in 2016. The com­pany also noted that the price per GB for its pre­paid cus­tomers is among the low­est in South­east Asia.
