Securing its stronghold in the broadband segment

Globe Telecom sustained its stronghold in the consumer broadband business after the consistently-growing and profitable segment of Globe posted broadband revenues of P12.7 billion ending 2014, a 22% increase from previous year’s P10.4 billion amid the rising demand for internet connectivity and the burgeoning shift to a digital lifestyle.

The telco’s broadband customer base also registered double-digit growth after customers reached nearly 2.8 million at the end of 2014, an increase of 37% from 2 million a year earlier. Fixed broadband and wireless broadband business booked customer uptake growth of 16% and 42%, respectively.

“Broadband is one of the fastest growing business segments in the company and remains a key growth driver for Globe.  We are confident that the brand will sustain its growth trajectory moving forward as we continue to develop innovative and relevant products and services in line with our commitment of enriching our customers’ digital lifestyle whether they are mobile or at home,” said Gilbert Simpao, Globe Senior Vice President for Consumer Broadband Business.

The impressive revenue performance resulted from the continued aggressive acquisitions campaigns and new competitive bundled plans launched throughout the year, he said. Also, the introduction of more affordable products and competitive tablet bundles throughout the year and the expanded pervasiveness of the fixed and wireless broadband network stimulated the robust performance of our broadband business in 2014, Simpao added.

Globe continued to introduce innovative content offers and various device plays to remain relevant to customers. In the fourth quarter of last year, Tattoo Postpaid launched gadget bundle offers with no upfront cash out and low  monthly fees at P749/month;

Lenovo A3300 at P799/month;

Samsung Tab3 7” at P849/month and

All gadget bundles come with free three months Spotify Premium subscription of 1GB data per month, Bluetooth speaker, mobile WiFi device and 1GB Globe Cloud.

 Also, Tattoo Prepaid sustained its best table bundle offers with free mobile WiFi and savings as much as P1,995. Taking the next step from 3G to LTE, Tattoo Prepaid SIM portfolio was relaunched with new LTE Combi-SIM (regular and micro SIM) and LTE tri-SIM (regular, micro and nano SIM) with speeds of up to 42 Mbps plus freebies. LTE Combi-SIM is available for only P40 with free 50 MB worth of data plus Basic Spotify access of 200 MB, valid for one day, while LTE Tri-SIM is available for only P75 with free 250 MB worth of data plus Basic Spotify access of 400 MB, valid for three days.

Amid continuing shift of its customers to digital lifestyle, Globe is currently upgrading its network capacity and expanding its LTE TDD and LTE-FDD footprint to further strengthen the company’s mobile data infrastructure and deliver faster and more reliable wireless internet connectivity.  This involves activation of more than 4,300 cell sites with the LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD ultra broadband access technologies for a more pervasive LTE coverage. The LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD technologies offer higher bandwidth, which enhances speed of data transfer, provides lower latency and increases overall network capacity.

            In 2014, Tattoo ventured into a partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) to allow customers to enjoy special edition plans and promos with access to NBA League Pass by bundling its services with exclusive and premium content. Tattoo Home Broadband introduced its special edition Plan 1299 at 5 Mbps that comes with access to NBA League Pass and data allowance of 30 GB per month.

Globe Logs over 11M Prepaid SIM Registrants, urges Customers to Register before April 26 Deadline

Published

on

Globe, the leader in Mobile, has registered more than 11 million active prepaid SIMs around a month after the law mandating all Filipinos to register their SIMs took full effect.

Globe hit the milestone 11-million mark on Monday, January 30, 2023, a month after the SIM Registration Act was rolled out as a measure to stop cybercrime, including scam messages that proliferated due to the anonymity provided by prepaid SIMs.

“We are grateful to our customers for promptly registering their SIMs. We understand the importance of addressing the proliferation of scam and spam messages and have made it our priority to provide our customers with a seamless registration process. We are committed to meeting the deadline and continuing our efforts to protect our customers from scammers and fraudsters,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.

Globe urges its customers who have yet to register to visit its user-friendly registration portal https://new.globe.com.ph/simreg. There are an estimated 87.4 million existing SIM users under the Globe network.

Registration via the GlobeOne app will begin in February as an added channel where customers may register their SIMs. As a user of GlobeOne, customers will have access to exclusive offers and deals that are available only in the app.

Globe also provided support for government-led assisted registration in priority sites nationwide from January 25 to 27. Globe established booths in 15 areas and provided assistance to anyone who needed help, especially those in need of special assistance, including senior citizens, PWDs awww and those using basic/feature phones.

Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe has also started rolling out its own on-site assistance booths across the country. From January 27 to 29, it led SIM registration assistance in 30 Puregold branches in strategic locations in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It will extend SIM registration assistance in other locations soon.

These efforts aim to provide inclusive ways to get its customers registered by the April 26, 2023 deadline. Users who fail to complete their registration on time will have their SIMs deactivated.

Even before the new law was implemented, Globe has taken several steps to curb disruptive messages through proactive blocking, threat intelligence partnerships with financial institutions, a customer reporting portal, plus an awareness and education campaign to help customers with online protection.

Globe Deactivates, Blacklists More than 50,000 SIMs Linked to Fraud in 2022

Published

on

Leading digital solutions platform Globe deactivated and blacklisted more than 50,000 SIMs last year as it continued to intensify consumer protection initiatives amid the rising cases of online fraud.

Globe deactivated 20,225 SIMs and blacklisted 35,333 SIMs involved in scam and spam messages in 2022 alone as part of its campaign for internet safety.

This was on top of the record 2.72 billion scam and spam messages it blocked last year, 83.4 million of which were bank-related. All these efforts have been on-going to protect customers from harmful content and fraud before the enactment of the SIM Registration Act.

“Globe recognizes the growing threat posed by scammers, who use various tactics, including text messages, to deceive innocent victims into giving up personal information that could be used to compromise their financial accounts. We will continue to invest in our cybersecurity program to protect our customers from these unscrupulous individuals,” said Anton Bonifacio, Globe Chief Information Security Officer.

Under its filtering protocol, Globe deactivates SIMs within its network once detected to have been involved in fraud. Meanwhile, SIMs outside of the Globe network are blacklisted to prevent them from sending to Globe.

Globe Deactivates SIM Blocked

On its own, Globe has taken a proactive approach to combat cybercrime schemes through various initiatives. It has implemented blocking mechanisms, established partnerships with financial institutions for threat intelligence, created a customer reporting portal, and launched an awareness and education campaign to empower customers with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.

Meanwhile, in a move to address growing concern over the use of unregistered SIMs in committing cybercrimes, the government introduced Republic Act No. 11934, also known as the SIM (subscriber identity module) Registration Act. Signed into law in October, the measure requires all mobile and broadband users to register their SIMs with their respective service providers to ensure that they are properly identified.

As of January 25, Globe has logged 10.4 million registrations of prepaid SIMs.
