Globe gains momentum on data and video experience improvements, well-ahead of aggressive builds

Globe has been consistently upgrading its network and accelerating infra builds as part of its efforts to provide better data experience and connectivity to its subscribers.

22-year-old long-hauler shares COVID-19 experience

Like many college students, Natalie Hakala spent spring semester of her senior year taking classes in her parent’s home in Eugene, Oregon. She followed all the lockdown regulations and did everything she could to keep herself and her family safe from COVID-19. As restrictions started to lift, she and some friends planned a camping trip to celebrate college graduation. The six campers thought they’d be protected if they stayed in their own tents and interacted outside.

“(Outdoors is) supposed to be a lot safer,” the 22-year-old told TODAY. “Everything seemed fine then a couple of days later my friend called and said, ‘Hey, I just tested positive for COVID.’”

On July 4, Hakala received a rapid COVID-19 test, and learned she had it too. The next day she lost her sense of smell. A few days later, she lost her sense of taste.

Experience A Globe-Trotting Getaway From Home, With The World Your Way

Wow. That’s all I can say, as I’m practically speechless. Because I just visited Rome and had the time of my life.

Let me be clear – this was a virtual vacation, and all along the way, I made the decisions on what to do next. Splurge or spend? Hotel or home away? Pasta or everything else?  Art or architecture?  Then the video took me to my preferred destination. It’s all a part of 60 Second Cites Presents: The World Your Way, and I watched and participated in the interactive video on my computer screen from the privacy of my home office. All I can say is “Wow” – and no jet lag!

Here’s how it works.
