Globe At Home Postpaid users received free 20GB of data for 15 days seeded to their Globe mobile subscriptions while their monthly bill will be reversed corresponding to the days when they experienced no connection. Globe Home Prepaid WiFi customers, on the other hand, were provided with free 5GB of data for 3 days. 

The company noted the importance of communications during such trying times.   Aside from access to reliable voice communications, people also need data to gather more information about what is happening around them and to get in touch with their friends and loved ones through social media platforms.
