galactic digital night from Globe

One of the perks of being a blogger are the fun experiences , such as the Galactic Digital Night , powered by Globe Platinum Broadband. I didn’t have time to get dressed in a Star Wars themed attire but I was still looking forward to a night of out-of-this-world fun. Can you tell I had fun?!

There is so much Star Wars fever these days as the much awaited Star Wars : The Force Awakens will soon show on December 17. I am one of them.

I recall the first Star Wars Movie in 1977 that left me in awe at the special-effects technology to a degree unseen before, with computerized and digitally-timed special effects. Here I am at a Galactic celebration of sorts, reliving my youth when digital effects in a party were unheard of in the seventies.

I also got to experience the blazing speeds of the Globe Platinum broadband, powered by fiber-to-the-home (FFTH) technology, at the Luxe Residences. The highest speed I got was 180 mbps. I look forward to the day when this FFTH technology reaches my village. Right now I am under the 5mbps Globe broadband plan. With the new Globe Platinum Broadband plans, home broadband customers can enjoy a broadband plan with the following internets speeds up to :

1. 50 Mbps at Plan 2499

Aside from testing the Globe Platinum Broadband, the fun far was testing the speed through a Trivia game. Sadly, I failed miserably at the Trivia Night with everything about Star wars. Prizes were Star Wars gift Items. I knew I had a chance when it came to raffle prizes.

The good news is I actually won during the raffle…the Sphero BB-8 app-enabled Droid.
