Press Release: Reinforcing its position as one of the preferred Telco brands in Asia, Globe Telecom was recognized as the Best Telco in the Philippines in the prestigious CNET Asia Readers’ Choice Awards held in Singapore last January 31.
To recognize the best brands, CNET Asia (asia.cnet.com) asked its readers to nominate their standout products/brands as part of the 8th Annual CNET Asia Readers Choice Awards. Covering the best tech from 2012-2013, over 297,000 votes from CNET Asia readers were captured in over 7 weeks to determine the winners. The voting was opened to all online readers from CNET Asia.
The brands and products voted by consumers were selected by the CNET Asia editors based on overall reader popularity and feedback, performance via CNET Asia lab tests, in addition to value and impact. From there, three products from each category with the most number of votes were awarded the CNET Asia Readers’ Choice Awards.

This award strengthens our resolve to transform the landscape of Philippine telco industry and change the game again through our innovative products and services,” affirms Cu.
The company’s successive quarters of growth over the last two years have been admired by industry watchers and analysts.
Delivering superior mobile and internet products, the company has a robust subscriber base of over 32 million. Its customizable plans propelled the company’s postpaid business, growing this to over 1.7 million subscribers, and cementing brand leadership.
