The growth of data-related products and services brought Globe’s first-half consolidated service revenues to an all-time high of P78.9 billion, up 4 percent year on year.

Total data revenues also rose to 81 percent of total service revenues from 79 percent last year.

As the new normal pushed more people to the digital world and accelerated digital adoption, mobile data revenues grew by 8 percent to reach ₱41.8 billion in the first half of the year from ₱38.6 billion in the same period of 2021.

Mobile data traffic jumped to 2,177 petabytes as of end – June, beating the 1,761 petabytes reported in a similar period last year.

Mobile data now accounts for 77 percent of mobile revenues from 73 percent from the same time last year.

Globe’s corporate data revenues, meanwhile, sustained double-digit growth of 21 percent and generated a historic high of ₱8.2 billion from ₱6.7 billion versus the same period last year.

The uptick from information and communications technology (ICT) and international leased line services accounted for the high performance.

Growth from ICT was largely from business application services, cloud solutions, and cybersecurity services.

It has two international cable landing stations situated in different locales to ensure redundancy and network resiliency.
