Globe Tattoo Platinum Home Broadband

  • vdsl lang ba ang platinum ng globe hindi pure Fiber cable? so depende parin sa layo?
  • VDSL lang po hindi fiber

    yung installer mismo nag sabi sa akin na wala pang fiber ang globe

    wew
  • Ano ba maaasahan kong upload speed?

    Usually half of your allotted download speed. If not, then around 20 to 40. May ilan dito na nakakakuha ng 45, pero may instances na tulad sa akin na hanggang 25 lang. Natingnan na ng on-site technician some weeks ago ang kaso sabi niya kahit i-request daw niya for reset baka same lang daw ang maging upstream limit. :/

  • Kind of disappointing about the upload speed, pero ok na din since wala pang alternative dito sa lugar namin. Malapit lang sa amin yung cabinet so hoping for the best.

    beg to disagree. misinformed na naman installers. eto yung setup sa condo ko before my globe fiber internet was installed. the black wires are fiber.

    Yeah, on the bright side, it always will be better than ADSL's excruciatingly slow upload speed. I was also hoping for PLDT Fibr's symmetrical rates, but alas despite having asked numerous times for three years my location still does not have it. So Globe's VDSL2 offer to me ended up a blessing in disguise.

  • @renzo

    actually nung nag apply ako hindi alam ng globe office dito na may 50mbps plan

    sabi nila na hindi raw alam ng head office na walang 50mbps plan sa davao city

    kaya pinatawagan ko sa kanila yung head office , nag usap kaming tatlo

    head office insists na meron pero davao city office also insists that non existent ang fiber sa davao ang globe then nag salita na yung technical head ng enginnering ng main office ng globe at kina usap yung local office na engineer at yun na solve nila

    pero yung installer says na hindi pa raw available pero due to the insistence of the head office napilitan daw sila mag install ng 50mbps pero wala pa raw talaga ganito sa davao

    PROBLEM DITO SA DAVAO KASI EH PARANG IBANG PLANETA yung mga services dito is not following the instructions of the head office , sa PLDT FIBR ko nga pldt davao insists that plan 1899 20mbps is not equal upload and downlaods kasi 20 dl at 10 ul speed lang talaga , i tried complaining but has fallen on deaf ears tried DTI and NTC offices pero inutil sila

    Depende sa location and existing facilities. Normally pag medyo older condos, VDSL2 kinakabit - yung fiber hanggang sa basement lang.
    Yung mga after 2014 na-deliver usually may fiber provision na kaya fiber gang sa unit na.

    I remember that pic! Nung nag-aantay ka pa lang magawa ni Globe yung facility sa building nyo..hahaha

  • Okay, this is getting kind of ridiculous. Those on Plan 2499 w/ Static IP, how much are you paying every month? I just saw my bill and it totalled to 3,600+ I am guessing there's VAT somewhere in there again... so ang kinalalabasan diyan pati ba naman ang Static IP may separate VAT?

  • 2499 all-in lang binabayaran ko per month. Static IP is free for platinum afaik, unless binago nila sa newer plans. I'm on 50 Mbps unlimited.
  • ^
    i'm on the new plan 1899, static IP. i'm paying 1899 flat, VAT and static IP fee included.
  • I'm on the newer Plan 2499: 100 Mbps w/ 1 TB volume allocation. It's most probably not Platinum like the older ones. Still, anyone on these newer plans can tell me if even add-ons (static IP) should have VAT? I'm finding it hard to justify paying an extra grand for a plan that already provides me with limited bandwidth.

    Without the add-on, they charge me around 2,700+ because of the 12% VAT, which according to one agent is 'normal', but prior to applying the representative at Globe Shangri-La told me I should only be paying a flat 2499 — I made sure to ask about this multiple times on multiple occasions. After entering the contract and receiving my first bill one week later it's almost as if he meant the exact opposite.

    (What sucks, even more, is that this is a data-only plan, and the same person from Globe Shangri-La told me the landline is already included in my plan cost.)

    Is the Physical connectivity pure Fiber? Or is it going to go through VDSL?
  • @rhizom3

    VDSL. Sa condo ako eh. Only newer condominiums have provisions for fiber internet.
