Globe announced that all iPhone 5 postpaid subscribers will get access to their LTE network at no additional charges. This is in relation to Apple’s iOS 6.1 update which activates the LTE capability of iPhone 5 and iPad devices.

“We are very excited to welcome this milestone for our postpaid subscribers as we provide them with ultra-fast data speeds and better call and text experien
ce on their iPhone 5 devices,” said Peter Bithos, senior advisor for consumer business at Globe.

Globe LTE“Even with LTE, postpaid subscribers don’t need to incur additional fees or shift to a different or higher data plan just to enjoy the benefits of LTE. Globe is making LTE available to everyone on LTE-enabled devices regardless of their plan subscription,” he added.

But it should be noted that currently, Globe LTE isn’t available nationwide, only postpaid subscribers from the following places after updating their devices will automatically be shifted to LTE signal:

Makati, Eastwood, Katipunan, Diliman, Meralco Avenue, Wack-wack, Ortigas Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Binondo, Cebu City, Boracay

Globe was first to introduce 4G technology in the Philippines in 2009, with the deployment of its Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMax) network. In 2011, Globe was also first to launch 4G Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) network. This year, 4G gets even better with LTE.

With LTE technology, Globe offers a broadband connection of up to 42 Mbps.
