Globe Telecom, the pioneer and leader in 5G technology in the Philippines, recently launched its Globe Innovation Fest.
Let me enumerate the latest wonderful and exciting innovations from Globe.
Pioneering data as currency
Globe pioneers the way customers use and extend the value of data by introducing data as currency in the Philippines. This applies to any Globe product whether mobile, Home Prepaid WiFi, or Reward for loyalty.
You can convert your remaining GBs to Globe Rewards points via the Globe One App.
- Prepaid: 1GB = 1 Rewards Point
- Postpaid: 1GB = 10 Rewards points
- Home Prepaid WiFi: 3GBs = 3 Rewards
Gigabytes or GBs may be converted into points at any time within the promo validity or before the plan’s cut off date.
More value and benefits everyday on mobile or at home
The new GPlan with GCash offers maximum flexibility for customers by giving them GCash credits which a subscriber can spend for anything: content subscriptions, shopping vouchers, or even home essentials like robot vacuums. Mobile and life essentials are now combined in any GPlan type.
Aside from generous data allocations, customers will receive unlimited all-net calls & texts, free GoWiFi when in transit, unlimited teleconsultation via KonsultaMD & 3 months worth of free GInsure medical coverage for Covid 19 & Dengue of up to Php140,500 with plan offers like GPlan with Device, GPlan Sim-only, and GPlan with GCash.
Globe Postpaid will also soon make special offers using the iQiyi app, one of the world’s leading online movie and video streaming websites for Korean and Chinese TV dramas, movies, variety shows, and Japanese anime. The mostly Asian content will be available using FREE and VIP versions accessible via iQiyi app or iQ.com. VIP subscription allows customers to get additional features like advanced episodes and no ads. iQiyi VIP offers will be available in GlobeOne and GCash apps next month.

Have you heard of the Globe At Home app? This app gives you the much needed support and helps you avail of services like bills payment, plan upgrades, and volume boost to get more data using the app. You can use this app by simply sending a message to the Globe At Home Facebook chatbot instead of calling a hotline or visiting a Globe Store. Even requests for repair may also be done via the app.
Helping SMEs and businesses in their digital transformation
Globe myBusiness has been assisting hotels, restaurants and cafes through the Safe Recovery Campaign. Going digital, accompanied by proper safety protocols has allowed the hospitality industry to slowly gain its momentum back. Globe myBusiness offers solutions and services such as Amber, Rush, and KonsultaMD. Amber helps businesses reach out to their client base. Rush enables businesses with reward programs for their loyal customers. And to ensure the health and safety of staff and guests, GmB offers KonsultaMD. Moreover, Globe myBusiness has partnered with SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, to offer the Hygiene Monitored Program.
This Hygiene Monitored Program is a global initiative that aims to ensure the highest hygiene practices within hotels, restaurants, cafes, and other places of business. An SGS HM mark is an assurance to the customer that the establishment practices the best food safety methods.
For corporate customers, Globe Business continues to work with clients and partners to ensure that enterprise businesses run smoothly and securely, as they propel their digital transformation. Globe Business helps in future-proofing businesses through connectivity, Cloud, cybersecurity, and a host of digital solutions, meant to reinvent the concept of ‘anytime, anywhere’.
Through the Cloud, for instance, businesses are able to elevate their operations from on-ground activities to online. Companies that used to be restricted to maintaining servers on-premise can shift their workloads (applications, services, and capabilities) to the Cloud. To help enterprises progress towards digitalization, Globe fully acquired cloud professional and managed services company, Cascadeo. This investment will help attain the highest level of professional and managed service capabilities for multi-cloud operations, guaranteeing extensive experience and knowledge in designing, architecting, building, migrating, and managing workloads and applications on the cloud.
Aside from its acquisition of Cascadeo, Globe also staked a claim on business applications and consulting company, Third Pillar—the Philippines’ largest Gold Partner of Salesforce, the world leader in CRM solutions. Through Salesforce, businesses can take advantage of cloud-based applications that allow them to automate B2B sales processes, leverage on AI to support customers, and more. With its expertise in CRM and impressive list of success stories, Third Pillar serves as a guiding hand for implementing best-in-class technologies that help Globe customers achieve innovation, sharpen their competitive edge, and generate growth in a digital landscape.
Endless possibilities to do good
Globe continues to forge partnerships with government organizations and has committed to adopt frameworks like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) to help address climate-related risks through science-based research, financial information and disclosures. Proactively investing in initiatives that create real and lasting social impact is a testament to the company’s commitment in creating a #GlobeOfGood. Through innovations like Globe Rewards, Globe One, and GCash, customers are given the power to take action as a digital citizen — able to participate in various initiatives including proper e-waste disposal, recycling, rainforestation, energy conservation, marine biodiversity, and minimizing single-use plastics.
For years, Globe has been recognized for its sustainability initiatives. The company supports 10 UN Global Compact principles and contributes to 10 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals such as UN SDG No. 9 which recognizes the importance of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development, and UN SDG No. 12 – Sustainable Consumption and Production, which is about achieving economic growth and sustainable development by urgently reducing ecological footprint. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles by changing the way we produce and consume goods and resources.
Working or studying from home is what most of us do now and going digital is the key. So invest in technology may it be for your home or your business.
