Globe wins big at the Opensignal 5G Global Impact Awards

Globe won all of the coveted categories in Opensignal’s 5G Global Impact awards for this year, further cementing its position as the Philippines’ 5G pioneer.

Globe leads the Games Experience category in Opensignal’s latest report[1] released this month, with a whopping 65.2 percent improvement over the global average, while the global average is only 8.2 percent.

Globe is ranked second in the world for Video Experience, with users reporting a 32.8 percent better streaming experience with 5G compared to 4G. In the meantime, the global average for the category is 8.8%.

Globe is one of the top ten mobile operators in the world for download speed, with a difference of 774.4 percent between 4G and 5G. According to the report, users on Globe’s network saw a 200.7 percent increase in Upload Speed when switching to 5G from 4G.
