Globe is calling its mobile customers to replace their old and obsolete SIMs to LTE SIM cards to experience better mobile data service.

Since December 18, 2019 Globe has been sending text messages to customers who continue to use their old and obsolete SIMs.  If you received a message, just go to your nearest Globe Store to get a SIM replacement. It’s free and you’ll retain your old number when you make the switch.

Don’t know if you’re still using an old sim? Check if you are still using a 3G SIM by texting SIM Check to 8080.

Check the differences between an LTE SIM card against an old and obsolete SIM.

Speed is the big difference as 4G brings broadband to your phone. It is up to 10x faster than 3G. For example: To download a five minute video with an LTE SIM card will only take one minute. To download a five minute video will take four minutes or more.
To download a two hour movie will take 30 minutes.   To download the same movie will take three and a half hours or more.
Faster access to the internet, faster loading of pages, watch YouTube videos without buffering.   Buffering will be experienced.
