Globe Telecom recently launched a personal cloud storage service, making this kind of digital offering more accessible and affordable to Filipinos for as low as P15 per month.
In a statement, Globe Vice President for Digital Media Glenn Estrella said, “Globe Cloud is one of our biggest innovations this year as we serve our customers’ digital lifestyles and take their mobile experience to the next level.”
“With Globe Cloud, access to cloud services is now available even to individual customers who look for a safe and secure storage for their files. Users can also access Globe Cloud from any device, making the experience easy, convenient, and hassle-free,” Estrella added.
Globe Cloud is an app from the telco’s suite of mobile applications that allows users to automatically back-up contacts, messages, photos, music and videos stored on their mobile phone to a secure cloud location.
Globe partnered with F-Secure, Finland’s top online security and privacy company, to ensure safety and security of a customer’s digital information with Globe Cloud.
With Globe Cloud, users can access and manage all files and even contacts from their smartphones, tablets, computer or any mobile browser.
A user can also transfer contacts from one phone to another as well as stream music and videos.
Globe said that besides convenience, Globe Cloud also promotes affordability and value-for-money, as it is considered as one of the most affordable cloud storage services in the world, with extra storage offered at a monthly or annual subscription.
A cloud storage of 1GB is available for as low as P15 per month, while 100GB is at P499 per month. Customers purchasing extra cloud storage can either charge the amount to their prepaid load or postpaid bill.
Globe Cloud can be downloaded for free from Google Play Store or iTunes App Store and comes with free 1 GB worth of storage.
Globe Cloud is part of the telco’s app portfolio that provides customers services helpful in their everyday routine. Globe also has GServices to manage one’s postpaid account, GMovies for movie ticket purchases and seat reservations for Ayala Malls Cinemas, and GDeals for discounts, freebies and exclusive Globe offers.
