Globe providing the best 5G video experience

In a statement, the company said the award was based on local mobile networks' performance in the second half of 2021, measured using multiple video metrics.

It includes the proportion of tests that failed to start, time to load the first frame of video playback, quality of video loaded, the proportion of users who experienced at least one stall in video loading or playback, and the rebuffering ratio of users who experienced a stall.

Globe attributed this achievement to the telco carrier's continued network investment.

This award shows the superior quality of experience for Globe’s 5G customers as we continue to build 5G where it matters. We are excited to harness the full potential of 5G. We believe that it will open many new opportunities to consumers, businesses, and the country as a whole as the technology matures, said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.

With 5G, users can expect a better video streaming experience as the technology delivers faster connectivity speeds, ultra-low latency, and greater bandwidth.

Globe ended 2021 with its 5G coverage expanding to over 2,000 outdoor and in-building locations nationwide. Amid the continuous rollout, outdoor coverage now hits 96 percent in the National Capital Region and 84 percent in key cities in Visayas and Mindanao.

For 2022, the company said it would further boost the presence of its 5G network across the country.
