Benefits of Globe's consistent and high network availability!

To those who missed it, reports from international entities Ookla and Opensignal hailed Globe Telecom as the "most consistent" network in the country in Q1 and Q2 of 2022. In addition, Ookla said that it also has the highest availability score in the land.
Then the signal strength is strong, it is quite good even for gaming!

What does that mean?

In particular, Globe recorded a 79.4 percent consistency score Globe in Q1 and 79.44 in Q2 at Ookla. This is about 2 points higher than its unnamed competitors with 91.91 and 91.41, respectively.

Ookla said the consistency score reflects the telco carrier's data samples that meet minimum download and upload speeds thresholds.

We won't dig deeper for everyone to understand this, but the higher the score is, the more likely the consumer will enjoy an acceptable internet performance and quality.

Globe also recorded a good consistency rating of 51.6 percent during the first quarter of 2022 at Opensignal.

Its users will encounter fewer drops and lags which could lead to winning games. Even if you increase the resolution of the game you are playing online, the chance of getting lag is way lower than when you are connected to a traditional 4G network. 

It will also lessen your stress due to those factors and let you focus on the game you are playing more.

3. It is quite nice for streaming - If there's 5G in your area, you will also be able to enjoy high-definition steaming with Globe.

We tried it on Netflix, YouTube, Viu, iQIYI, Spotify, and Apple Music and the experience is nearly flawless. Take note that most of the videos we played are at least 1080p and we were even able to stream heavy Apple lossless files with ease.

So, we find its 5G in available areas to be great for streaming while you are relaxing.

It is not perfect and there is still a lot of work to be done in 5G and the general mobile connectivity in the country, but Globe is showing some solid promise. 

This is thanks to its continuous efforts to make this tech better and more widely available. As a result, the company recorded strong consistency and availability scores from independent testing firms.

We think that the best is yet to come.
