Globe Telecom this week launched its fixed wireless 5G service, Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G. 

The new 5G service which offer fiber-like speeds up to 100Mbps and super-sized data packages of up to 2 terabytes will be initially available in select areas in Pasig, Cavite, and Bulacan. The new plan will be available to eligible customers in July 2019. Plans come at P1899 per month for up to 20Mbps, P2499 for up to 50Mbps and P2899 for up to 100Mbps. All come with up to 2TB data capacity.

Globe's fixed wireless 5G service is supported by Huawei 5G RAN and 5G CPE Pro that is powered by Balong 5000 chip, the world's first 5G multimode modem chipset.

Ernest Cu, President and CEO, Globe Telecom
Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G makes use of fixed location wireless radios instead of fiber optic cables which enables the company to go over the circuitous approval process of deploying a fiber optic cable - a task which proves to be arduous and involves securing multiple permits from local government units (LGUs).
