 New and Existing SKY Fiber subscribers can quickly enhance their productivity and lifestyle in the new normal when they maximize SKY Fiber’s leveled-up fiber-fast home internet subscription plans that are even more affordably priced than before.


A P999 monthly fee can now get subscribers up to 20Mbps, a bump up from speeds of 5Mbps or 10Mbps in previous years. To date, this is considered the most affordable postpaid plan in the country.


“Subscribers will continue to have broadband plans from SKY that are affordable but in addition get faster speeds that will entirely meet their needs. SKY Fiber’s internet plans were designed to assist Filipino households to cope with their combined demand for remote work, e-learning, online entrepreneurship, or content streaming,” Claudia Suarez, SKY’s Consumer Products Group Head said.


This value for money upgrade can also be observed in the other SKY Fiber unlimited broadband plan options, most notably in its highest speed plan, which was previously only 150Mbps but has now leveled up to 200Mbps for the same price of P3,499/month.


If value-conscious consumers are looking for a plan that is somewhere in between the basic and highest plan, they can opt for plan 40Mbps which is only priced at P1,499/month, or plan 80Mbps which is now within pockets’ reach for only P1,999/month.


With the recent upgrade, existing SKY Fiber subscribers nationwide also experience an automatic upgrade without the hassles of going through an application process. They just simply have to do a 3-minute hard modem reset to enjoy their leveled-up internet speed.


Meanwhile, entertainment-seekers will also be delighted to know that SKY Fiber is also offering unlimited broadband + HD Cable bundle speed plans of up to 120Mbps at best-value. For P2,999 a month, instead of just enjoying a speed of 60Mbps, subscribers can double the fun when they get to smoothly stream online videos with a speed of 120Mbps while also having access to over 60 cable channels.


To make the SKY Fiber Super Speed bundle plans an even more economical purchase, they all come with SKY EVO, the newest digibox innovation that offers access to over 190 SKYcable channels, 5,000 downloadable apps, and pre-installed content streaming apps such as iWantTFC, HBO GO, YouTube, Prime Video, and Spotify.


“The challenges of 2020 have compelled us to level-up our product offerings this year. We hope that we can ease the burden of Filipinos by presenting multiple solutions in our best-value bundle plans,” Alan Supnet, SKY’s head for Consumer Broadband Products said. 


To enjoy fiber-fast speeds of up to 200Mbps at highly competitive prices, visit mysky.com.ph/skyfiber. The leveled-up SKY Fiber Super Speed plans are now available in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo, and Davao. While Baguio, Gensan, and Zamboanga can experience fiber-fast speeds of up to 80Mbps.

Globe waives data charges on UNICEF’s SaferKidsPH platform to boost fight against online child exploitation

Monday, January 17

Globe is giving its customers free access to UNICEF’s SaferKidsPH platform, in line with efforts to democratize information on proper data protection and reporting cases, when witnessed, as well as curb online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC).


When visiting the SaferKidsPH online platform,  Globe and TM customers will not incur any data charges. The website offers plenty of information about OSAEC -- what it is, ways to fight it, and the different channels to report such cases.


“As a strong advocate of child online safety, we want to keep Filipino children safe even as they are constantly exposed to the internet. Our partnership with UNICEF for SaferKidsPH is not only a commitment, but also a call for our customers to join us in fighting OSAEC together,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.


Globe and UNICEF, through SaferKidsPH have been working hand-in-hand to promote online safety and security among children since 2019. SaferKidsPH is an Australian Government initiative delivered through the consortium of Save the Children Philippines, The Asia Foundation and UNICEF to reduce the online sexual abuse and exploitation of children in the Philippines.


Likewise, Globe collaborates with local and international organizations like the UK-based Internet Watch Foundation to take down webpages, keywords, hash lists, and digital fingerprints containing child abuse materials.  Another partner is the Canadian Center for Child Protection (CCCP) which helps Globe identify illegal websites and block them out of its network. The CCCP is known for its capabilities to constantly search the web for harmful platforms.


Globe is also supporting UNICEF’s Child Protection and Child Rights and Business Programs in the Philippines as part of its #MakeITSafe campaign.


Both camps aim to develop an awareness and education campaign on OSAEC and online child protection, which includes the expansion of the Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP), a series of capacity-building workshops organized by Globe to educate the youth and other stakeholders about digital citizenship and the responsible use of technology.


Under the #MakeITSafePH agenda, Globe is also investing in infrastructure that will support the government’s efforts to combat online child pornography. To date, the company has already spent $2.7 million to establish an effective content filtering system and has blocked 9,329 sites containing illegal content.


Globe also helps in maintaining support hotlines such as Bantay Bata #163, Hopeline, as well as other initiatives on mental health through KonsultaMD and HealthNow.


Globe strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development, and UN SDG 17, which highlights the value of partnerships in achieving sustainable development goals. Globe is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs.
