GLOBE TELECOM, Inc. is partnering with DMCI Homes, Inc. to offer easy subscription to Globe At Home services exclusive to DMCI condominium owners.

In a statement on Wednesday, the telecommunications giant said residents at The Birchwood and Ivory Wood in Taguig City, Asteria Residences in Parañaque City and Lumiere Residences and Sheridan Towers in Pasig City may now apply for subscription to Globe’s services directly through DMCI Homes.

It noted that Internet connection has now become a basic necessity, hence fitting to be among the offers bundled with ownership of property.

“When you think about it, you want the basic necessities in life, such as water and electricity, ready when you move into your new home… The same thing is now the case with internet — it has become a utility that homeowners need,” Globe’s GTM & Business Development Director for Broadband Michelle Marie Fernandez-Castillo said in the statement.

DMCI Homes Assistant Vice President for Marketing, Customer Care and Corporate Planning Januel Mikel O. Venturanza echoed the same sentiment, saying “It’s important for owners nowadays to have an internet connection at home so we thought of making it available once they move into their units.”

In June, Globe announced it will roll out its fifth-generation (5G) Globe At Home service by second quarter of 2019, in partnership with Huawei Technologies Ltd. The 5G integration is expected to allow the company to render internet speeds from 50 megabits per second (Mbps) to 100 Mbps through Air Fiber technology.

The Ayala-led company posted a 27% rise in attributable net income during the first quarter at P4.7 billion on the back of higher earnings.

Globe shares lost P19 or 1.06% to finish at P1,780 each on Wednesday. — Denise A. Valdez
