Globe is migrating broadband users to fiber starting next year according to a statement made yesterday. They were planning to install at least 1.4 million lines of fiber connections within the year.
The goal has already surpassed to 250% as of October, and it has already started migrating DSL and LTE users to fiber over the course of the year. According to Globe, Fiber users can enjoy up to a theoretical 1Gbps internet speed
