    Saw this post on Yugatech, will this be a significant change to existing broadband plan?

    I think it’s a new offering from globe pertaining to 5G, and the currenT broadband offerings are still active

    kenobiz is correct. Same pricing, speeds, and data allocations as their previous At Home LTE (GoBig) plans. They’re offering 5 to 20 Mbit speeds. Definitely not 5G levels. :ROFLMAO:

    Rebrand, self install and makes use of carrier aggregation through multiple bands to achieve those speeds. 5G is a long way to go. 2023-2025 before we get the same coverage as 4G LTE.

    Never get a wireless broadband for your home unless there’s absolutely no other wired option.

    the data allocations are quite generous so this is a good alternative if fiber is not available in your area yet......I also like the self installation feature...all you need to do is apply for a plan and get your device once approved.

    But you cannot relocate your modem to a far location
