Globe At Home Broadband Plans 2017

Globe recently launched the new Go Big and Go Fast broadband plans for 2017 with Globe At Home branding!

The new 2017 plans are relatively cheaper when you compare them with speed and data allocation of the broadband plans last year! To know about the old 2016 plans, go here: Globe Home Broadband Plans 2016.

Updates on this article:

June 30. As reported by new subscribers of Go Fast (LTE), particularly, Plan 1299: The additional 100GB for 6 months is also valid for open data access (not for Youtube only as how it is marketed).

June 21. Added Volume Boost Addons, Plan Activation and Billing Statements section.

Globe At Home Broadband Plans 2017

Globe At Home 2017 plans are subdivided into two groups, Go Big** and Go Fast.  The naming itself implies that Go Big has bigger data allocation while the Go Fast groups offers higher speed but with lower data allocation in a said price range. Let’s take the new Plan 1299 as an example.

Broadband Plan 1299 Go Fast
Up to 10mbps | Data Allocation: 150GB (LTE)*, 100GB (DSL)

Broadband Plan 1299 Go Big**
Up to 5mbps | Data Allocation: 300GB + 100GB for Youtube

You can clearly see the difference here that the Go Big plans are meant for home users (possibly also for small to medium size businesses) that needs bigger data allocation, while the Go Fast plans are built for users that wanted higher speed but don’t consume data too much. As always, as these are “Globe At Home” plans, they are really meant for “home” or personal use. For my opinion, Globe did it better this time  (only for Go Big) compared on the launching of the absurd plans of 2015 and a bit improved (?) 2016 plans.

Broadband Plans Go Big 2017

The best deal here if you can shell out more money is the Broadband Plan 1899 Go Big as it offers 500GB of data + another 100GB for Youtube**. As it shows, this plan is only available for wired connection.

Details for Broadband Plan 1299 Go Big 2017

Bundled entertainment content is retained but slightly modified w/ free 6-month access to Netflix and 2-month access for HOOQ. Disney joins the bundled content with 6-month free access to Disney channels apps.

Broadband Plan 1299 Go Big

  • 5Mbps Maximum Speed
  • 300GB Monthly Data Allocation + 100GB Monthly Data Allocation for YouTube
  • Netflix (6 months subscription)
  • Disney Channels Apps (6 months subscription)
  • HOOQ (2 months subscription)
  • Free 4-Port Router with WiFi
  • Free Landline with Unlimited Calls to Globe/TM

Globe Broadband Go Fast Plans

Broadband Plans Go Fast 2017

The most noticeable change here is that at Broadband Plan 1299, LTE offers more data at 150GB (50GB + 100GB Youtube)* compared to DSL’s 100GB. Well, I guess this is just to temporarily compensate the wrong move for the 2016 plans, throttling the LTE connections at a mere 256kbps when data allocation is consumed. Read more about throttling of the 2016 plans here. 

*Promo of additional 100GB data for LTE is only valid for 6 months. After 6 months, data allocation will return to 50GB (LTE). 

** Available for DSL/Fiber connection only.

Broadband Plan 1299 Go Fast

  • 10Mbps Maximum Speed
  • 100GB (DSL) Monthly Data Allocation
  • **50GB (LTE) Monthly Data Allocation + 100GB Monthly Data Allocation for YouTube for 6 Months
  • Netflix (6 months subscription)
  • Disney Channels Apps (6 months subscription)
  • HOOQ (2 months subscription)
  • Free 4-Port Router with WiFi
  • Free Landline with Unlimited Calls to Globe/TM

When you are in the current 2016 LTE Plan 1299, there is really no good reason to upgrade to this one. Boradband Plan 1299 Go Fast is just the same with Plan 1299 of 2016. That is, if you will not consider the 6 months 100GB for Youtube promotion.

June 30 Update: As reported by new subscribers of Go Fast (LTE), particularly, Plan 1299: The additional 100GB for 6 months is also valid for open data access (not for Youtube only as how it is marketed).

Other Plans

The older plans are still offered if you wanted to have a look. They don’t have any bundled free entertainment content and they are priced lower. By this move of Globe, they are modifying the Plan 1299 and above to compete with PLDT’s offerings. In my own opinion again, these plans should have higher speed too or just trash them since they won’t do any good for a consumer (I’m looking at you Plan 999 at 1mbps/20GB data).

Details for Broadband Plan 1199.

Broadband Plan 1199

  • 5Mbps Maximum Speed
  • 50GB Monthly Data Allocation
  • Free 4-Port Router with WiFi
  • Free Landline with Unlimited Calls to Globe/TM

The Plan 1199 at 5mbps/50GB is still good, but why choose this if just adding 100 pesos per month will bring you to a far better plan? That brings-in Globe tactics to only offer this plan to areas with limited to no choice other than Globe for internet connectivity. It is better to have this internet connection than nothing, right?

Guaranteed Speed and Throttling

The fineprint of the new plans is:

Minimum guaranteed speeds: 30% of subscribed speed (for Fiber); 256kbps (for DSL/ LTE). 256kbps speed applies upon full consumption of data allowance.

All new Globe At Home plans will now throttle down to a speed of 256kbps when data allocations is fully consumed. Well, this change won’t matter too much for a regular home user, since both Go Big and Go Fast offers enough data for a typical home browsing use (not much for downloading stuffs). A huge hit will be for the Fiber and DSL customers. For the 2016 plans, DSL are throttled down to 30% of subscribed speed when data allocation is consumed, now they will suffer the same fate of LTE. 🙁 Speed will go back to normal/reset every first day of the month, regardless of your plan’s cut-off date. If you can’t wait any longer, this is where the Volume Boost Addons in the next section come into play.

Meaning, if you purchased a 60GB add-on in the 17th day of April and unable to consume it all at the end of that month, remaining data will be added on top of the available data allocation for May. Data from volume boost will be consumed first and will be forfeited if left unconsumed.

    • Raz

      Go Big is offered for wired connections only.

  • brynn

    yung go fast 1599 LTE b yn o DSL din?

    • Raz

      Hi brynn, DSL.

  • Weng

    +100 gb for youtube? sa LTE pano kung pangdownload pwede ba? or pang games?

    • Raz

      Hi Weng, only for youtube po. Download/games is magcocount pa din dun sa regular alllocation na 50GB for Plan 1299 Go Fast (LTE).

      • Weng

        thankyou po sa info ..

      • John Paul Gigando

        Hi Sir Raz, ask ko lang po. so 150GB siya. yung 100GB for youtube lang talaga? then yung iba sa 50GB allocation na kukunin? sorry medyo noob po yung question.

        • Raz

          It is marketed as 100GB for Youtube (promo for the first 6 months) + 50GB for regular data allocation. Pero recently, other users claim (those who availed this), na pwedeng gamitin yung 100GB kahit hindi sa youtube. meaning, counted as regular data allocation siya.

          • John Paul Gigando

            Woaah really? Mas ok na pala ito kesa last yr.

          • Raz

            Yes Sir, pero ang drawback, di tayo makakasiguro kung bigla nalang maging for youtube only yung 100GB na additional. We can’t blame Globe then, if that happens. Kasi marketed as for Youtube lang siya.

          • John Paul Gigando

            Kung sabagay. Thank you so much sir sa info.

  • roy

    lte plan 1299 kakakabit lng kahapon.. sabi ng installer is 150gb allowance daw kasama n daw utube at regular jan.. un ang pagkasabi kasi.. saka tanong ko lng ang modem ba pwede dalhin?like sa ibang place pero same city as where as may LTE na nasagap ang mobile mo.. thanks.. need ko lng po malaman.

    • Raz

      Hi Roy, yes 150GB (100GB for Youtube, 50GB for regular data based on Globe’s fineprint). Ganda nga sana kung 150GB open access..

      Ginagawa yan ng iba, nililipat yung modem sa ibang lugar. Yung iba, sabi naman naka lock sa certain cell site yung SIM kaya hindi gumana nung nilipat sa malayo layong area. Mas maganda try mo personally, but ofcourse, if ever man na humingi ka ng support from Globe, dapat nasa installation address na binigay mo ang modem.

    • John Paul Gigando

      Hmmm meron akong nabasa na note sa globe not sure kung updated paba yun or what. 150GB nga siya. pero pag tapos ng 6months magiging 50gb nalang siya.

      • Raz

        Yes John Paul. It is only a promo, stated din yan sa article na ito.

        • John Paul Gigando

          Then ask ko lang din pala sir kung bawal ba ito patayin kapag hindi ginagamit? for example nasa work kameng lahat then walang maiiwan sa bahay. pwede kaya ito ioff?

          • Raz

            pwedeng pwede naman Sir.

  • geb0i

    Hi. I’m on Globe Broadband Plan 1599. I’m just wondering kung pano iuunsubscribe is HOOQ. Hindi ko sya tinry pero nagreflect pa din sa bill namin for 2 months now. I’m also thinking of a downgrade. Any ideas how?

    • Raz

      Hi geb0i, please contact globe regarding your subscription. Ipacancel mo nalang. Also ask for refund/credit to your bill lalo na kung never mo naman pala triny kahit yung free subscription. Regarding downgrade, you can ask for it even hindi pa tapos yung contract but it is subject to downgrade fee. We downgraded ours last year, P,1000 ang fee that time. Also, marereset yung contract kapag nagdowngrade ka, new contract for the new (downgraded) plan.

      Dati, I am doing it thru chat.globe.com.ph pero hindi na pwede ngayon, either go to a Globe store or call them at 211 or Customer Care (02) 730 1000.

      • geb0i

        Thanks, we’ll do that. Ano na plan nyo this year? Did you try netflix also? How did the cancellation of it go? Mas madali ata sya compared to HOOQ. Idk. I’m still trying it out though on a 4th month but I plan to keep it after downgrade siguro considering mas maganda na yung plan 1299 ngaun compared to 2016.

        • Raz

          We’re on Plan 999 5mbps (Rubicon Beta Plan), LTE to. Still lucky to have it last year since Plan 1199 ang equivalent niya ngayon. Wala pa kasing fixed line sa area namin, kaya wireless lang ang choice.

          We have free HOOQ access and Spotify bundled to the plan pero never namin ginamit or inactivate. One year na ngayon, di pa naman kami nacharge so far.

          Yes, mas okay na nga yung Plan 1299 under GoBig ngayon compared last year, if decrease in speed will not matter sa usage niyo.

  • Jenny

    pag malakas ba ung ulan d naman ganun kaaffected ung signal ng lte? and ung plan 1299 300gb lte dn ba un?

    • Raz

      Hi Jenny, yung 300GB po is for DSL only, but you may inquire if it is available in your location, they might offer it as LTE kung hindi congested ang area niyo (but this is unlikely).

      We are using Globe LTE Home Broadband since 2015, no major issues regarding the signal whether maaraw o maulan. May times lang na nawawalan ng signal pero babalik din agad after a few seconds/minutes, Around 1km away lang kami sa nearest tower ng Globe.

      • Jenny

        Ah yes DSL daw ung 300gb. Ang LTE is 10mbps 50gb data+100 youtube. Around 2km siguro layo namin sa tower na pinakamalapit dito, so I am worried talaga sa signal since ginagamit ko ung net sa Skype. Balak ko na kasi magswitch dahil almost 2 weeks nang walang internet galing sa service provider ko.

        • Raz

          So far so good naman sa amin, consistent ang speed minsan lagpas pa (dahil na din siguro kokonti palang ang naka LTE sa area namin). regarding sa signal, magiinstall din naman sila ng outdoor antenna kaya ayos lang kahit medyo malayo ka na sa tower. ang magiging issue mo lang is the 50GB allocation, lalo na kung madalas ang HD video calls sa Skype, but meron naman Volume Boost na pwede i avail kung sakaling kulang sayo yung data allowance.

          • Jenny

            Kokonti palang naka globe dito pero di ko lam kung LTE na din sila. My mobile wifi kasi ako and malakas naman sagap nya nang signal so kung ok sa mobile wifi ok naman na din siguro pag sa broadband. 1 hour a day skype video call lang naman. And the rest for data entry purposes and browsing nalang. Work at home kasi ako.

  • gbneko

    Hi! Was just wondering when exactly did globe start implementing the throttling of DSL connections to 256kbps after reaching cap limit? We always, always max out our bandwidth, every month, without fail, but we only started having the 256kbps this month. It wasn’t like that for the previous months at all. We were surprised, and quite mad actually, to find out about this policy. I know that we were promised only the 30% decrease in speed after reaching cap when we applied for this plan. We are on the plan 1599 150gbs 15mbps. I couldn’t do anything but apply for their volume boost of 50gbs more data allocation, so this is really frustrating. Can Globe really do this to its consumers? Can they just suddenly change certain clauses in their fair use policy? Can I report this to NTC? Thanks for any help!

  • Edron
