Just the other day, I received an email from Globe asking me if I want to avail of their paperless billing system. This is in accordance with their commitment to pursue a greener initiative one in the local industry.
Here’s the copy of the email they sent me:

As a backgrounder, I’ve been availing of MyGlobe services for quite sometime now, and have been able to view my bills online for several years already. However, I still rely heavily on the paper-based bill since it has an accounting of all my transactions which I can view anytime without having to fire up my browser. Currently, the online billing info is PDF-based so, unless you’ve got a pretty fast connection and this isn’t even a guarantee, it does take sometime to load. Personally, until they provide a faster interface to access my bills online, I’d still stick topaper-based billing.
How about you guys? Are you ready to go paperless for the planet? Take the time to answer the poll below and let’s see what the consensus is.
