Globe Telecom readies FTTH launch

11 Jun 2009

Filipino telecoms operator Globe Telecom plans to launch a high speed internet service based on Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology in Makati’s Forbes Park village on 15 June 2009. The telco’s GPON fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service promises to deliver connections speeds of up to 100 Mbps, which it claims will be the fastest internet connection available in the country. Menchi T Orlina, head of Globe Telecom’s consumer marketing group, told reporters the service will cost PHP14,995 (USD395) per month, although an entry-level package is available costing PHP3,995 per month (including a landline, Wi-Fi router and a maximum 10Mbps connection). Globe intends to expand FTTH coverage to Bel-Air and Urdaneta villages in Makati and Serendra in Taguig by July.
