Globe Tattoo Platinum Home Broadband

  • Hi po, mag tanong lang po ako kasi may mga flyers dito sa area namin na fiber plan 1899- 2499, and chineck ko rin sa site ni globe at available nga siya, kaso triny kong tumawag sa csr and tinanong ko kung pwede mag upgrade from my current dsl plan (15mbps/1599) to fiber plan (50mbps/1899) kaso sabi sakin need ko daw i terminate muna yung dsl plan ko para mag ugprade dahil nga naka lockin pa yung dsl ko (termination fee is 2k+ ata). So kailangan ba talaga tanggalin muna plan ko sa kanila para lang makapag upgrade? :(, yun lang po salamat.
  • I'm not sure dahil sa PLDT kasi kailangan i-terminate if you wish to upgrade while locked in a contract. Meron nag sabi sa akin na hindi daw ganito sa Globe and at any given time ka pwede mag upgrade or downgrade daw, pero clarify mo nalang ulit. Hindi ko din kasi sure after reading your comment kung may katotohanan nga ba 'yung sinabi sa akin.

  • UPDATE regarding GLOBE 20mbps(1599), 50mbps(1899) and 100mbps(2499) "Fibre Plan".
    I've confirmed via talking to various supervisors from Customer support and even their branch supervisors that once you fully consume your allotted data, you will be stuck on 256kbps(Yup! Modem speed) until the next 1st of the Month.
    Globe is forcing you to purchase their "data booster" pack so that you could continue using your Plan's speed. I suggest you guys use other ISP's or stick to your current old one. DO NOT get this plan, this is plain scamming using "fair usage policy" as an excuse to milk out more money from their consumers while providing inadequate service.
  • Walang kwenta! Buti pala hindi ako nagswitch to Globe Fiber from PLDT Fibr.

    in Globe's defense (again, hindi ako employee or PR firm nila), matagal naman nang global industry practice yang capping. sa america inalis na nila yung unlimited plans kasi naaabuso yung system. don't get me wrong, ayoko rin ng cap as much as possible pero kung yun yung makakapagbigay ng equal service to everyone, why not?

    besides, naka-300gb plan ako, i rarely reach my data allocation sa isang buwan considering na heavy user ako. hindi ako anti-PLDT pero tried and tested ko na na mas reliable ang globe broadband kaya ako naghintay ma-roll out sa condo. and i find 1899 per month reasonable for 50mbps na speed.

    ps. May 1 buwan na inubos ko yung 300gb para ma-test, hindi naman 256kbps yung speed. from 50mbps, naging 15mbps.
    ps2. kung talagang kelangan ng unlimited, well yes, i agree, go pldt na lang. meron pa rin silang unli fiber plans. okay na rin naman ang feedback sa service nila, accdg to most of my friends. it's just down to your preference.
  • @Travanj
    Oh men. Sana di totoo. Baka naman nananakot lang sila? Will give you feedback by the end of the month. Paubos na 150GB ko e. Try ko kung ano speed after. Sana mag apply din samin yung na experience ni sir renzo, w/c is 30% ng plan speed niya after ma reach yung cap.

    Kinakabahan ako e. If ever mag 256kbps nga siya, meron ba yung globe na 30 days service guarantee? Pwede pa kaya ako magpa cancel? Sa 17th yung start ng billing cycle ko e.
  • There has been a reversal of trend with regards to data capping in the US. Most wireless carriers are now offering unlimited plans.

    Globe's just doing it for the money, plain and simple. Why cap a WIRED service when the infra/tech can obviously handle it anyway? Its not like wireless where you have limited spectrum availability. Each wire line is capable of what the technology can provide. Fiber ~ 1Gbps (theoretically, no limit), DSL~20mbps (per subscriber).

    Hope they come to their senses and just do away with the cap. Their 1599 plan is actually a good value for money.
  • ^Bumaba nga kita nila last year eh. Baka new strat nila to.
  • @renzo_upd

    I understand net neutrality. My concern is not withr capping though. It's the 256Kbps speed that surfaces after you exceed your cap that's just unacceptable.
  • ^Remember when Globe implemented 64kbps speed when capped. Most subscriber shifted to PLDT. I'm sure they won't implement that. They will stick to 30% capped speed.
  • is anyone here experiencing slow / selective browsing on Globe? been using Google's DNS and tried to revet back to their original DNS pero ganun parin. Youtube works flawlessly though...

    ah, now this i am totally onboard with. ang brutal naman kasi ng 256kbps kung totoo man. kahit sana 1 or 2mbps man lang for browsing if you reach your allocation.

    same! i reported it 2 days ago. pag nag-speedtest ako using globe servers 49-50mbps naman. youtube videos at 720 or 1080p load fast. pero pag nag-update ako ng app sa phone or other sites, mabagal. kala ko ako lang eh.
  • @renzo_upd
    finally may nagconfirm din. tinatawag ko pero wala naman daw issues on their end. may topak siguro infra nila. can't even open speedtest website huhu
