Dominating this year's Telecom Asia Awards with the most number of nominations across telcos worldwide, Globe Telecom's consumer offers have been recognized as among the best in Asia after three (3) products were shortlisted as finalists in the award-giving body. More details after the jump.

Globe Free Zone, a product launched by Globe in partnership with Google, was nominated as Most Innovative Telecom Project. Globe was the world's first telecom operator to offer prepaid and TM subscribers access to Google Search, Gmail, and Google+ without data charges on their feature phones and smartphones via http://libre.ph.

Globe Prepaid GoUNLI30 was also named finalist in the Most Innovative Partnership Strategy category, with Globe tapping major global over-the-top (OTT) players to offer a world-first product bundle that allows prepaid subscribers to send unlimited texts to all networks, make unlimited calls to Globe & TM users, and get unlimited access to instant messaging and chat applications Viber, Facebook Messenger, KakaoTalk, WeChat, WhatsApp, Line and GMessage without data charges.

Finally, the telco's broadband brand Tattoo was also shortlisted as one of the finalists in the Best Broadband Carrier category. In 2013, Globe sourced much of its growth from its broadband business, with revenues growing to P10.4 billion, up 20% compared to 2012. The outstanding revenue performance of the broadband business resulted from the continued aggressive acquisition campaigns, attractive pricing offers, and innovative product bundles for its Nomadic and At-Home services.

"Coming from a successful run at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain earning Globe important milestones, we are once thankful with another round of citations from the prestigious Telecom Asia Awards, testifying to the impact that Globe has made globally over the last few years," said Peter Bithos, Chief Operating Advisor at Globe. "Globe is once again leading the forefront of telecoms innovation worldwide with game-changing products that will connect Filipinos wherever they are."

Rounding up the list of the telco's finalist nominations are the Globe Business CloudPayroll in the Best Cloud-Based Service category, Talk2Globe in the Most Advanced Approach to CEM category, Globe Telecom in the Best Emerging Markets Carrier category, and Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu in the Telecom CEO of the Year category.

"The volume and quality of submissions from telcos definitely shot up this year. I've been inundated with queries for two months," said Telecom Asia group editor Joseph Waring. "This response has given judges more specific data in which to base their nominations."

Final selection is made by an independent panel of industry experts, who will cast votes on the basis of innovation, financial performance, technology, market leadership and corporate governance. Now on its 17th year, the awards are the region's longest-running and most prestigious telecom industry awards. They reward innovative and outstanding performance by Asian service providers and industry executives.
