5G is one of the levers that will allow us to uplift the lives of more Filipino families and help local businesses flourish by providing life-enablement opportunities similar to those in more developed markets, according to Globe at Home Senior Vice President and Head of Broadband Business Martha Sazon at the recently concluded 5G Asia Conference at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.Speaking in front of some of the region's top tech thought leaders and operators, Sazon discussed the reality of deploying commercially available 5G technology in developing countries such as the Philippines from challenges with infrastructure limitations, to opportunities of uplifting families and enterprises through rapid digitalization.

Further, she divulged on Globe's unique strategy for faster deployment of fixed wireless access (FWA) to more Filipino households amid a myriad of topographical and logistical challenges. She added that “Given geographical limitations and permitting issues for rolling out fiber optic cables, 5G has the promise of providing fiber-like speeds and experience, bringing such proposition to the market at a faster rate vs. Fiber as we leverage our existing wireless sites to roll out 5G,”

Globe launched its first commercially available 5G technology for home internet called Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G last quarter, cementing the Philippines' place as the first country to experience commercial fixed wireless connectivity in Southeast Asia and second in the entire continent after South Korea. Air Fiber 5G comes with fiber-fast speeds of up to 100 Mbps and generous data allocations of up to 2 terabytes (TB) starting at around P1,899 (USD 36) a month.
