Use of Data as Currency Launched During Globe Innovation Fest
Our daily experiences have drastically changed this past year. Thankfully, Filipinos are very agile, always ready to adapt to new experiences and survive challenges. Despite the pandemic, many are able to stay afloat, thanks to digital means that keep coming up with new platforms, services, promos, and plans. And now, they have introduced the use of data as currency in the Philippines. Read more.
What Changed Our Daily Experiences?
Simple tasks like going to the sari-sari store is no longer as simple, as you have to make sure that your face mask is in place. When you go home, you have to wash your hands and sanitize everything else. Many businesses stopped so many people lost their jobs. Moreover, classes and even most of the work have been moved to the home.
Globe Telecom recognizes the challenges that its customers continue to face given the current state of the pandemic. To support them, the company launched it first-to-market innovations that redefine telco experiences.
“Today, Filipinos have better connectivity with truly proactive service here and abroad, powered by the largest mobile network and the fastest-growing 4G network in the country. More advanced technologies are also in place such as 5G and fiber plus pervasive network improvements.” This was shared by Globe’s Deputy Chief Commercial Officer Issa Guevarra-Cabreira during the first-ever Globe Innovation Fest.
At present, Globe stands as the industry pioneer and leader in 5G technology in the Philippines. The recent launch of Globe’s 5G roaming services in the UAE and Thailand are set to continue with upcoming launches across Asia, Middle East, North America, and several countries in Europe. The 5G roaming service is available to Filipinos traveling internationally, as well as subscribers of select foreign telcos visiting the Philippines.
Pioneering the Use of Data as Currency
With the internet as a new essential, data has become an indispensable part of our daily lives. 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. With Globe’s latest innovation called GBs to Points, customers can soon start converting their unused GBs to Globe Rewards points. This can be easily done via the Globe One App.
- Prepaid, the conversion is 1GB = 1 Rewards Point
- Postpaid, 1GB = 10 Rewards points
- Home Prepaid WiFi, 3GBs = 3 Rewards
Gigabytes or GBs may then be converted into points at any time within the promo validity or before the plan’s cut off date.
More Value and Benefits to Stretch Money Values
Globe Postpaid acknowledges the evolving needs of customers. Flexibility and reliable connectivity are the priorities in the game.
So Globe has introduced another first of its kind in the market, the new GPlan with GCash. This offers maximum flexibility for customers by giving them GCash credits which they can spend for anything they want and need.
Endless Possibilities to do Good
Globe is more than just business and helping people. They are also for saving the world.
One of the greatest and most impactful risks we face as a community is the threat of climate change. Globe sees that mitigating the impact of climate change should involve the whole of nation.
Globe continues to forge partnerships with government organizations. The company has committed to adopt frameworks like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). They want 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. They are able to participate in various environmental initiatives, such as:
- Proper e-waste disposal
- Energy conservation
- Marine biodiversity
- Minimizing single-use plastics
“Climate change will impact all of us so we need to be persistent in educating Filipinos on environmental threats and what (we) can do to help. Actively participating in causes and increasing awareness on what’s happening around us will go a long way in mitigation,” concludes Cabreira.
