Globe Telecom launches anti text spam campaign

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 9:10 AM
Globe Telecom launched a campaign to address continuing proliferation of unsolicited promotional materials sent through short messaging service or text messages, commonly known as text spams, which many subscribers find to be annoying and bothersome.

To help reduce, if not eliminate, text spams, the telecommunications provider has put in place several channels through which subscribers can report text spams, saidYolyCrisanto, Globe Head of Corporate Communications.

Subscribers may report via the Globe website through Talk2Globe Chat (; send a message through Globe Contact Form ( and by tweeting @Talk2GLOBE on Twitter.  Subscribers can put in the number, the exact message, and the time and date the text spam was received. Numbers that are reported to be source of text spams are first sent warnings and those that are persistent source of text spams are deactivated from the service, Crisanto said.

While the company takes utmost care in safeguarding data, records and documents gathered in the process of conducting business, subscribers should also take caution in writing down any personal information including mobile phone numbers. “Anyone who has access to numbers can create a database. Collection of numbers can come from registration to events and websites, prepaid loading from sari-sari stores, to text validation of mobile apps, and more. Major sources can be mobile marketing companies, app and web developers, load merchants, private and public establishments as well as through mobile generator programs,” she said.

Globe Telecom also disputes an online report that telcos sell customer numbers to database marketing companies. “Our valued subscribers can rest assured that we treat customer numbers with utmost confidentiality in line with the company’s security policy,” Crisanto emphasized. “We are aware and take note that spam text messages continue to cause inconvenience to many of our subscribers We want to assure our customers that we are committed in our drive against text spams,” she added.

Many subscribers complain of getting an average of 5 to 10 text spams a day. Spam messages are usually sent by prepaid numbers as they are untraceable and are easily disposable. Spammers also don’t need to specific numbers to send spam messages to as they make use of USB GSM modems and they spam number ranges.

The National Telecommunications Commission had previously issued a memorandum circular prohibiting any unauthorized broadcast messaging services. The memorandum provides that any individual or business entity who wants to send broadcast messages needs to register first with the NTC for authorization. Legitimate text blasts approved by the regulating agency are properly identified and do not carry 11-digit numbers.

Globe Telecom allocates P7.5M for Habitat for Humanity to build and repair homes in Northern Cebu, Eastern Samar

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 7:19 AM
Photo 1: Globe and Habitat for Humanity employee volunteers give out shelter kits to residents of Guiuan, Eastern Samar
Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom has allocated P7.5 million for the building of homes and distribution of shelter repair kits in Daanbantayan, Cebu and Guiuan, Eastern Samar in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, an international housing organization. 

Daanbantayan in the northern tip of Cebu province was where Typhoon Yolanda made the third landfall in November 8 last year while Guiuan was the first town to be hit by the severe weather disturbance.  Latest statistics show that Typhoon Yolanda has totally wiped out 550,928 houses and partially destroyed 589,404 dwellings in regions 4-A, 4-B, V, VI, VII, VIII, and CARAGA.

The partnership with Habitat is part of Globe Telecom’s recently launched “Project Wonderful” ( which is its corporate response to nation building -- providing shelter to the homeless, bringing education to the children, and generating livelihood opportunities for the jobless.  All these with the aid of employee volunteers who want to bring the provinces of Palawan, Panay Island, North Cebu, Bohol, Leyte, and Samar back on their feet.

“Globe is one with the government in its efforts to help the country recover from the recent devastation.  And one of the things necessary to rebuild the communities and bring back a semblance of normalcy is for the victims to again have their own homes instead of living in tents or makeshift shelters.  That is why we have forged a partnership with Habitat for Humanity as well as Gawad Kalinga for the provision of homes or building materials to those affected,” said Fernando Esguerra, OIC, Globe Corporate Social Responsibility.

Globe will sponsor the rebuilding of 500 homes in Brgy. Logon, Malapascua Island in Daanbantayan in addition to providing logistical support to Habitat for the delivery of shelter repair kits to some 6,000 affected households in Guiuan.

Photo 2: A portion of the shelter repair kits for distribution
The shelter repair kits include six pieces marine plywood, eight pieces corrugated galvanized iron sheets, 10 pieces 2x3x210 good lumber, two pieces plain sheets, assorted nails, a hammer, and a saw.  The materials may be used to construct a small dwelling or to patch up the walls and roofs of houses.

Habitat is also planning to bring over carpenters to assist the residents in constructing their homes aside from giving trainings to the beneficiaries on the proper use of the materials.

Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity Philippines has played an active role in working with families to build decent, durable and affordable housing. Through a network of project offices in rural and urban areas, Habitat for Humanity Philippines has built and repaired tens of thousands of homes.

The winners were among the participants to the Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) Ten Photos to Shake the World contest

Globe secures Ayala Alabang community support for more cell sites

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 1:01 AM
Homeowners at the Ayala Alabang village joined a growing number of upscale subdivisions supportive of Globe Telecom’s bid to provide tailor-fit solutions that would significantly enhance connectivity in posh villages amid growing popularity of bandwidth-intensive devices.

The telecommunications provider started to address clamor for improved mobile coverage in Ayala Alabang in 2011 by investing significant capital expenditure to install additional cell sites and improve connectivity within the village. Ayala Alabang currently houses three Globe cell sites.  

Given the size of the village, seven to eight more cell sites are needed to further enhance connectivity inside the village, said Emmanuel Estrada, Globe Head of Network Technologies Strategy.

“There are approximately 4,000 houses constructed of high grade materials and almost 30,000 residents inside the village. Households situated farther from base stations could experience poor mobile coverage as cellular signal and quality diminish with distance.  In addition,  there are  about 9,000 full-grown trees that could pose a challenge to providing deep indoor coverage for our customers in the area,” Estrada said.

He further noted that mobile data explosion amid growing access to internet connectivity, which requires more bandwidth than traditional voice and text messaging services, demands the establishment of more cell sites to ensure and deliver superior mobile data services especially indoors. In that way,  customers can access popular social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter on their smartphones in the comfort of their homes.

To squarely address subscriber requirement for higher bandwidth capacity, Globe is ready to implement tailor-fit solutions that would boost cellular coverage that would benefit the entire AAVA community, Estrada said.

Such solutions include the use of outdoor distributed antenna system (ODAS), which makes use of a specialized lamp posts built with radio signal transmission capability, as well as the use of cell sites disguised as palm trees or other aesthetically designed cell sites to blend with the surrounding areas such as those deployed in Urdaneta Village in Makati.

Exclusive villages that have approved or shown openness in allowing the installation of cell sites within their communities include Dasmarinas, Urdaneta, Bel-Air, San Lorenzo and Forbes Park. In Dasmarinas Village in Makati, homeowners allowed the installation of ODAS in the upscale subdivision. The ODAS technology is a network of small cell sites, instead of typical macro cell sites with shared equipment connected through fiber optic links. The solution makes use of a specialized lamp posts with radio signal transmission capability deployed along sidewalks.

Globe Telecom: nurturing the right talents, The Globe Way

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 8:37 PM
Globe Telecom Vice President for Leadership and Talent Management Tina Palmario-Sioson recently was a resource speaker at a recent forum on talent development held at the Shangri-la Hotel in Makati.

To the leaders of Globe Telecom, much of the company’s encouraging performance over the past several years could be attributed to the contribution of high potential and engaged employees amid company efforts to strengthen its talent development programs.

Strongly believing that employee engagement will further drive company growth and performance in the future, the leading telecommunications company is bent on developing key talents within the organization into future leaders of the company.  “Our objective is to build a surplus of leaders so that Globe is ready for the future whether for business sustainability or for new areas that we are resolved to conquer next,” said Tina Palmario-Sioson, Globe Vice President for Leadership and Talent Management at a recent forum on talent assessment.

Globe Telecom’s talent development program is anchored on The Globe Way, which espouses the telecommunication provider’s culture, values and ideals based on the premise that “people make the difference”.

Such thrust has prompted the company to develop an integrated leadership development approach such as the iLeadGlobe. The program is selective with eligibility criteria relevant to the participants that are handpicked by the leadership team through a stringent talent review process. The series of interventions include the Executive Development Program for the next generation of senior and business leaders. This program is meant for seasoned talents who have exhibited strong performance, demonstrated the company’s leadership competencies and have the potential to become the next generation of senior leaders.

The Young Leaders program, on the other hand, is an integrated leadership initiative that aims to engage and develop the company’s key talents into future business leaders. This program aims to holistically develop leadership skills over a period of approximately four months through a series of learning interventions such as modular training sessions, real-life projects and continuous learning through coaching and mentoring. The Emerging Executives program, meanwhile, is for mid-career talents for evolving hidden gems in the organization.

                "Even with the positive performance of the company over the past several years, we believe that things will get better and better, what with the network and IT transformation that we have implemented. The company’s thrust towards customer centricity would not have been possible without all the people at Globe,” said Sioson.

In addition to its iLeadGlobe program, the telecommunications provider has partnered with the leading business schoolsand opened programs for the employees interested to develop their business competence.  The company is also assessing and honing its employees by providing them with more job based development opportunities in order to future-proof their careers.

In parallel, the company launched Careers@Globewhich addresses the needs for professional growth of the rest of employees in the organization. The principle is anchored toward a joint responsibility between employee and superior with the employee taking a more proactive stance in taking charge of charting his career. Employees are given access to tools to help them assess their skills, capabilities, strengths and development areas. These are used for better career discussion of the employee with his superior, Sioson added.

Globe donates ICT tools to UNICEF for quality maternal and child care in off-grid areas

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 8:26 PM
Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom has donated P1 million worth of prepaid load and 200 mobile phones to the United Nations International Children's Fund (UNICEF) for the provision of quality health services to mothers and their newborn children particularly those in geographically-isolated and disadvantaged areas.

               The donation will be used for the Real-time Community Health and Information Tracking System or rChits which was initially launched in 10 off-grid areas to aid in information management and treatment response efficiency.  Globe is the official telecom and ICT partner of the rChits program led by UNESCO, Australian Aid, and UP Manila National Telehealth Center.

rChits is an ICT innovation made up of three components:  Chits, an electronic medical record system for maternal care; mReports, a software installed in mobile devices which serves as a portable medical reporting system; and LGU Dashboard, a graphical web interface that allows local chief executives to make evidence-based decisions on health care delivery.

“Lack of access to health and medical services is one of the identified causes for the increase of maternal and child mortality rate especially in remote areas, often due to insufficient number of health workers and lack of transportation.  Thus, as a leader in ICT and having a mobile network that best serves the areas where rChits is being implemented, we want to utilize our strength to help address this issue,” said Fernando Esguerra, OIC, Globe Corporate Social Responsibility.

Under the Philippines millennium development goal, the country is tasked to reduce its MMR by three quarters by 2015.  Latest data revealed 221 deaths per 100,000 live births.

Most health centers still use paper-based or manual systems to record and analyze data. However, due to lack of manpower to implement the program effectively, inaccuracies, missing data, and overall output is of low quality.  This hinders the provision of quality health services including proper natal and child care.

Initially, rChits was introduced in Arakan, Aleosan, Midsayap, and President Roxas in North Cotabato;  Malungon, Sarangani;  Lebak, and Kalamansig in Sultan Kudarat;  Davao City, Puerto Princesa City, and Quezon City.

The program is being used by rural health staff consisting of community doctors such as Municipality Health Officers or MHOs, rural-based doctors, public health nurses and rural health midwives.

                Through rChits, midwives who make their rounds within their designated areas are given cellphones by Globe where recorded data are transmitted through the pre-installed mReport program to the UPMNTHC server and are then cascaded to the desktop computers of the partner health centers where Chits is installed. The data collected are summarized and analyzed by the LGU Dashboard and presented in graphs and charts to serve as the basis for local executives in the development of health-related policies and programs of communities.

The 200 mobile phone units that Globe gave to the program is equipped with the Android Operating System the same operating system that rCHITsis using.

Globe also provided P1 million worth of prepaid load to jumpstart operations for 1 year.  The amount was raised through the My Rewards My Globe Program, a loyalty program tailored for all loyal Globe mobile and broadband subscribers where they earn points for every successful reload. The points earned makes subscribers eligible to redeem Globe products and other items as well as make contributions to community development programs such as rCHITs.

Bamboo and Tattoo Home Broadband Give smiles to Children of Ormoc

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 10:07 PM
Globe Senior Vice President for Broadband Business Gilbert Simpao together with Globe Vice President for Tattoo Home Broadband Jurist Gamban and Bamboo thanked everyone who saw Bamboo’s concert where every seat sold was equivalent to 2 toys for the children of Brgy. Tambulilid in Ormoc.
Tattoo Home Broadband together with celebrated rock icon Bamboo gave the children of Brgy. Tambulilid Elementary School in Ormoc, Leyte plenty of reasons to smile with gifts of toys in time for Christmas.

A fitting finale to a successful run of Bamboo's Christmas concert Believe: Christmas at Home with Bamboo, the concert became the prime vehicle to be able to collect over 2000 toys for the benefit of the kids in the said barangay. After the onslaught of typhoon Yolanda, Tattoo, through Globe Telecom's Bangon Pinoy program, gave its commitment to restore and rebuild 100 homes in Ormoc, in partnership with Gawad Kalinga. And with the holiday season Tattoo chose to give importance to the children of the community who were left most vulnerable after the calamity.
Bamboo’s concert Believe: Christmas at Home with Bamboo held at the Music Museum is part of Tattoo’s #UnwrapHope project with an end goal to give over 2000 kids toys as gifts for Christmas.
Everyone who wanted to watch the concert purchased toys in exchange for the tickets. On the other hand, those who simply wanted to share a simple Christmas message posted their video greetings on Instagram with the hashtag #UnwrapHope. Each video post was also equivalent to a toy that Tattoo donated on their behalf. And as a special treat, a creative selection of these videos were compiled and revealed during Bamboo’s concert.  
 Brand new toys were shipped to Ormoc in time for the gift giving celebration with Tattoo and Bamboo

Following the collection of toys was the gift wrapping activity held at the Globe Tower where employees, Tattoo customers and Bamboo's fans alike helped each other to wrap and put a bow on every single toy. The gifts were sealed with Christmas cards from the kids of Taguig Elementary school.

As Globe Senior Vice President for Broadband Business Gilbert Simpao said, "what better way to end a blessed year right than to give back. We feel very lucky to have this opportunity to make kids happy especially after what happened with typhoon Yolanda. And this is just the beginning as we commit to return in time to rebuild of their homes".

 The kids of Brgy. Tambulilid gave the Tattoo team a warm welcome and eagerly waited for their turn to receive a toy.

Globe Executives danced together with the children of Brgy. Tambulilid Elementary school.
 And just like Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, Bamboo and the whole Tattoo team and Globe employee volunteers arrived at the elementary school bearing gifts of joy in the form of truckloads of toys.

Globe Employee volunteers worked hand in hand to unload the boxes full of toys for the kids
"We will forever be thankful that these children welcomed us and allowed us to be a part of their Christmas celebration. But we don't only want to be here just for the holidays. We are here for this community for the long haul and we look forward to making more children happier in the near future" continues Globe Vice President for Tattoo Home Broadband Business Jurist Gamban.

Joining Bamboo, Simpao and Gamban in the recent gift giving was Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto, and Globe Vice President for Nomadic Broadband Business Dong Ronquillo alongside Globe employee volunteers who gave their time and effort for this meaningful cause.

The children gave the Tattoo team a warm welcome and even had a chance to dance with them. Kids received toys from huggable stuffed dolls and building blocks to action figures.

Tattoo together with Gawad Kalinga are now in the process of preparing in time for the building of the Tattoo-GK village in Brgy. Tambulilid this January. Apart from 100 houses, the village can also count on Tattoo's support with livelihood programs designed for sustainable living. Tattoo was able to raise funding for this project with their donation of 100% of their sales from their sticks and home broadband plans for November and December.

Bangon Pinoy is Globe Telecom’s enterprise-wide disaster response initiative that aims to have a unified system for donations, relief efforts, and corporate social responsibility programs across products and services. It is an integrated program that allows communities devastated by calamities to benefit from various efforts geared towards rebuilding and rehabilitation. It was first introduced by Globe in 2009 after typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng wreaked havoc in the country.
