I am pleased to announce to you that 4G technology was launched first by Globe. 4G is the 4th generation of the cellular wireless standards and obviously, it will be faster than 3G.

This rollout, the first phase of which utilizes the global standard HSPA+ or Evolved High-Speed Packet Access. It means that the theoretical download speeds can reach up to 21 mbps with upgradeability for 84Mbps. In Globe HSPA+ network, subscribers are expected to enjoy browsing at an average speed of 4-6 Mbps with even faster peak speeds.  Other 4G technologies include LTE or Long term evolution and WiMax. Last November 2010, Globe completed field trials of 3GPP LTE together with the SingTel Group and NEC Corporation.

Many places across Metro Manila is covered by the Globe 4G technology which includes Marikina, Quezon City, Makati, Pasay, Las Pinas, Taguig and the City of Manila. By the end of this year, Globe expects to increase the 4G presence and it is planned to increase its expansion in 2012.

Globe has already made 4G available in over 1,500 sites in nearly 60 provinces across the Philippines, which covers 365 cities, including Manila, Caloocan, Cainta, Antipolo, Taytay, Plaridel, Cabanatuan, Dasmarinas, Bacoor, Imus, Tanza, Calamba, Batangas City, Cebu City, Cagayan De Oro, and Zamboanga.

I’ve been a globe user for 6 years and I hope when I get a 4G device, they won’t fail me when it comes to speed and reliability. You can’t fully utilize the 4G if you’re device doesn’t support it. It means that your device must be 4G ready. I’m glad to say that the bandwidth capping isn’t applicable on the Globe 4G
