Its accuracy is up to 2400 dots per inch (DPI) and includes six programmable buttons.

There’s also a USB-C Wireless Charging Kit that can charge any 13 to 14-inch laptop. All you need to do is lay the 65W mat and connect the receiver to one of the USB-C ports.

The Wireless Mobile Power Bank has a capacity of 10,000mAh and can simultaneously charge up to 30W of devices, one via wireless Qi and two via USB-C.

There’s also a Wired Speakerphone that eliminates headset pressure and delivers top-notch sound.

Some time last week, there were reports of Globe At Home modems being sold as rebranded DITO modems. Globe then issued a warning and worked with the Philippine National Police to pin down the suspect.

On June 23, 2021, Globe announced that the suspect has been captured. According to the police report, the suspect named Marlou de Paz was captured in a sting operation in Pala-Pala, Brgy. Sampaloc Dasmarinas Cavite. The 33-year old De Paz is under investigation for violating RA 8484, or the Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998.

De Paz was caught illegally selling “openline DITO modems” on various Facebook community groups for Cavite-based residents. In his post, he stated that any telco operator’s SIM may be used for the unit to function. The post also openly claimed that the modems are the Tozed “S10g Home Prepaid WiFi device.”

Globe is currently the only authorized distributor of these Tozed S10G modems in the Philippines. The telco is taking the necessary steps in ensuring that its customers are well-protected from illegal activities concerning its products and devices.
