“Our partnership with Facebook and the learnings from our successful ‘free FB’ campaigns have helped drive heightened awareness and interest about the Globe-Internet.org proposition. As such, this key partnership has led us to become the leader in creating a digital lifestyle for Filipinos, as evidenced by our 64% revenue market share in the Filipinos mobile data market. This clearly puts Globe in a unique position as the preferred mobile brand in the Philippines,” said Horan.
Because of its success, Horan announced that the said offer has now been extended until May, 2015.
