With its comprehensive and multi-year collaboration with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, Globe Telecom is enhancing the Filipino digital lifestyle experience.

The collaboration will provide video-on-demand, interactive content, promotions and other related services across multiple devices to Filipino customers.

Additionally, Globe customers will soon have access to an array of Disney content offerings, including long- and short-form programming, interactive content and games, theatrical releases and retail promotions.

Company officials give credit to network experience with 100 percent 3G and 4G HSPA+ nationwide coverage as well as the increasing pervasiveness of its LTE network around the country for its performance.

Also, Globe is activating more cell sites with the LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD ultra broadband access technologies for a more pervasive LTE coverage nationwide to enhance its wireless network infrastructure.
