Globe Telecom: Cost of mobile internet, cheapest in PH among ASEAN countries

Telecommunications firm says that as most people in the Philippines use the mobile, or wireless option, the cost of connecting to the internet in the Philippines is cheaper.

Globe Telecom Inc. said in a statement that the challenging topography of the country has made the Philippine’s online connectivity to be mostly based on mobile.

Research firms like Hootsuite and We Are Social’s Digital’s latest report shows that a total of 73.91 million people uses the internet in the Philippines as of January 2021.

Globe said that this has propelled the major players in the telecom industry to take up the “mobile-first strategy” as they seek to clarify a previous report made by listing the costs of fixed and wired internet connections.

According to Globe Telecom, the costs of mobile, or wireless connection are not included in the data cited by the previous report which made Philippines seem to be among the countries in Asean to have higher internet costs.
