Globe LTE Home Broadband Plan Review

Today, being connected to the internet became a “need” and not just a “want”. As the mobile phones before that are deemed as accessories of the wealthy people. But how do cellular phones evolve to become a necessity and the best way to communicate while you’re on mobile? Same as internet. On the old days, sending mails require you to wait days to months before receiving a response. Today, by using e-mail, you can send a message for free and get a reply in just a couple of minutes to hours. It only depends when the receiver checked his/her mailbox. It is basically the same classic registered mail without the agony of asking oneself if the mail was received or not. When is the time you find your long lost childhood friend thru facebook? How about sharing your emotions and thoughts in twitter? Or post a lovely photo in Instagram? Do a research about your projects and assignments? Internet made all these possible. There are a lot of greater things internet can do.

2014 & 2015 Plans Review

Anti-Bill Shock Plan Alternative


Updates on this Article:

2016

September 1: Information about 2016 Globe Home Broadband Plans is transferred to a new article: Globe Home Broadband Plans 2016.

August 20: New Globe Broadband plans has been released.

June 24: Added ETA and availability of Rubicon plans.

June 15: Updated throttling speed to 30% of subscribed speed for Rubicon plans.

May 31: The hope for better plans to be offered under LTE might be turning into nothing. As confirmed through Globe chat support by me and other readers here, the “Rubicon” plans with higher speeds will be only offered to DSL subscribers. This is a disappointing by Globe as this will not definitely enhance the internet services here in the PH but rather downgrade the so called “LTE (?)” service. Check out the other details under Rubicon plans.

May 6: New plan scheme is on it’s way and it is coined as “Rubicon”. This article will be updated accordingly as soon as the new plans are publicly announced. But for now, information about the new plans are stated below.

March 10: Additional information on speed throttling of the 2015 plans when monthly limit has been reached and some clarification on billing statements.

October 2015: Added info about plan activation and billing statement; GoSurf Plan with Anti-Bill Shock (ABS) listed as an alternative (check the section right after “The Wrongly Future”).


2016 Globe Broadband Plans (Official)

August 20, 2016. Globe recently launched their new home broadband plans lineup with bunch of bundle offerings. To avoid confusion from the Rubicon (beta plans), a new article has been  made specifically for the 2016 Globe Home Broadband Plans. You may visit it here.


New Rubicon Plans (Un-Official/Beta)

Information below pertains to the beta plans. For more accurate information, I recommend you to go to the new 2016 Globe Home Broadband Plans article here.

June 24, 2016. Rubicon plans are currently offered to existing subscribers only. This is not yet available for new line applications. ETA for official announcement of the said plans is within this year.

May 31, 2016. Please be guided that the update last May 6 is not officially announced by Globe, and just a few days ago, it turns out that only existing loyal subscribers under DSL plan will be getting the Plan 1299 and 1599 under Rubicon. For LTE subscribers like me (or us), only Plan 699 and 999 will be offered. I greatly wonder why Globe will be doing this. This move will not favor both the consumer and quality of internet service here in the Philippines under the so called “LTE” service that can only offer upto 5mbps under the “new and improved plans”? Hopefully, things will be different once Rubicon or “Right Size” plans will be officially and publicly announced. All we can do now LTE subs, is wait and hope for the better.

May 6, 2016. This is rumored for more than a month, and pretty sure it will be announce publicly in a few days. Here are the new plan scheme:

Plan 699 – 3mbps, 30gb per month (Spotify for 3 months) + Google Chromecast
Plan 999 – 5mbps, 50gb per month (HOOQ, Spotify for 3 months) + Google Chromecast
Plan 1299 – 10mbps, 100gb per month (HOOQ, Spotify & NBA for 3 months) + Google Chromecast
Plan 1599 – 15mbps, 150gb per month (HOOQ, Spotify & NBA for 3 months) + Google Chromecast

These new plans are much better compared with the current offerings. But, it should be noted that once you hit the monthly cap, speed will be throttled down to 30% of subscribed speed. For Plan 1299 for example, when you already consumed 100gb, speed will go down to 3mbps. This is still an acceptable speed as you still get the same speed from the old plan. However, there is a catch. Speeds will continue to go down by 30% depending on your usage. The usage here was not yet clear on how many GBs more will it take for the speed to be at 0.9mbps. So roughly speaking, speed will start at 10mbps then 3mbps, 0.9mbps until it reached the minimum of 256kbps as per mandated by NTC.

June 15, 2016. As confirmed by several loyal customers who already upgraded to the new plans, the throttling will remain the same at 30% of subscribed speed.  So let’s say, for 5mbps plan, speed will go down to 1.5mbps when monthly allocation has been consumed.

What do you think about the new plans? Is it worth the upgrade?



Below is the original review written for the 2014 Globe Home Broadband Plans:

Please do take note that this is an old article reviewing the 2014 & 2015 Home Broadband Offerings. The article about the 2016 plans is found here: 2016 Globe Home Broadband Plans. However, information below about plan activation and billing statements still hold true to date.

Internet Service Provider

First of all, how can you be connected on the world wide web? You can not simply sit somewhere like Juan waiting for a guava to fall on you. It is definitely impossible to get connected that way. You should then avail of the service with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). And that is what this post is all about.

Philippine ISPs

Here in the Philippines, there is only a limited number of ISPs that serve us. Leading the list is PLDT, followed by Smart (but still PLDT. And not to mention Sun Celullar that is again a PLDT subsidiary.), and Globe Telecom (Innove). They are just the same huge companies empowering hundreds of towers that provide cellular signals throughout the country. Other guys on this list are Sky Broadband, Bayantel, Eastern Telecom, WiTribe and Destiny Cable. Did I miss your ISP? If that’s the case, sorry. You may want it to be added here by commenting below. 🙂  So, with these choices, for whom you are willing to give your precious money by signing up on their service?

Update: ConvergeICT is a new promising internet service provider that provides real unlimited bandwidth. However, the service is not yet available throughout the country (See Serviceable Areas). ConvergeICT fully relies on pure fiber optic technology.  To know more about Converge ICT’s Fiber and Broadband Service, visit ConvergeICT.com.

Globe LTE Home Broadband

Globe 4G LTEWe use Globe LTE Home Broadband here in our residence. Globe Tattoo is the carrying brand of Globe Telecom for their ISP department.This choice is widely influenced by my own decision – because I am the one who was asked then. For me, it is Smart Communications for basic calls and texts but Globe is the way to go for internet connectivity. Why? It is just a personal preference and might be a first impression.  I usually experience fast connections with Globe and slower one when I am with Smart and frequent delayed messages and dropped calls with Globe.

I can say that I am a heavy internet user (not in weight) despite of the fact that I rarely watch videos or download media files. I can easily reach 1-2GBs a day with just plain browsing. That is how addicted I am reading stuffs over the internet. My niece is a Youtube addict and can easily consume a GB in one seating. Globe LTE plans are available in 2, 3, 5, 10, 15mbps and so on. I told my cousin to get a 3mbps plan so that it will be adequate and has reasonable speed if there are 2-3 users actively connected. I assumed that you will rarely get 3mbps since a lower value from what is advertised has became the norm here in the Philippines. Advertising for the speed that is nearly impossible to experience. However, this is not the case with Globe. We experience consistent speeds all day and night long. There is no such thing as peak hours with them. Maybe because we are connected in a non congested cell site. Speed test result for Plan 1099 (2mbps):

Globe Home LTE near midnight speed test
Anyway, my cousin did not follow what I told her (or suggested?). Lol. She signed up for a 2mbps plan instead of 3mbps. Well, I do not know if a 200 peso difference is a great decision parameter for her. Maybe because a homephone is forced to be bundled to the service that give an additional 1,200 pesos on top of the bill. (Amortized in the first 6 months of the contract). Basically, the Globe Homephone is a plain, large, and dull looking Huawei phone with basic functionalities. It provides unlimited calls to globe as a “freebie” of the plan. But hey, it is NOT REALLY FREE. It was disguised as an activation fee. It was PAID. But, my biggest disappointment is that the homephone does not have a calculator. 🙁

The photos above are test results from Speedtest.net. As you can see, connection is stable whatever the time it is tested. Results were above 2mbps most of the time. Occasionally, upload speeds go as high as 4.20mbps+ ~ 525 KB/sec. But, the difference is not valuable except on uploading large files over the cloud. In real world usage, the maximum speed for upload is still at 2mbps. I hope download speed limit will break so that we will experience true LTE or 4G speeds. 😀

Speed check for August 3, 2015 (5th month):

Speed check for October 3, 2015 (7th month):


Plan Activation

Broadband Speed

Usually, you will get anywhere around 0.5 – 2mbps right after the Globe broadband is installed. In our case, we already experience our subscribed speed of 2 mbps on the first day. However, for higher speed plans, it will take more or less 24 hours for your account to be activated by Globe. It depends on how fast the technician that installed it reported the completion of the job order.

You may be advised to monitor your wifi router during this timeframe since it is required to restart it manually when the indicator turns red. It indicates that the activation is ongoing/started. You should get your subscribe speed after the activation.

Unlicall Bundle

A homephone or wireless landline is supplied with you for bundled plans. It is already connected to the globe network (with signal) but non-functional until it was activated on the system. In our case, the technician said that it will start to function after 2 days or so but I am so disappointed that it took more than 20 days before it was activated. Maybe because the installation was done during the migration from the old plans to the new plans.

You will receive a welcome message from Globe via SMS that your postpaid plan is activated. A notification for the activation of the promo named SUPER DUO will be also sent through SMS.

BILLING INFO

If you wish to get the Plan 1099 that we have, you are not going to pay exactly P1099 a month not until the 7th billing. Meaning, your bill will be around P1,600+ for the first three months and about P1,300+ for the next three months (or the 4th to 6th billing). This is due to the fact that you are paying for the P1,200 amortization of the Homephone/Landline (divided into 6 months) and the installment of the P1,000 installation fee (first 3 months). Your 7th bill should be around the MRF (monthly recurring fee) of your chosen plan.

The installation fee also serves as the amortization for the modem itself. So basically, the modem is also yours after paying the first three months.

Unlicall BB Bundle

Even Globe customer service reps do not know why this is included in the billing statement – or why is it even called with that name. This just means that you are using a bundled plan. Unlicall BB bundle costs P99 but it is waived and does not add up to the total bill. I assume that BB stands for Broadband and not Blackberry.

Unlicall bundle costs an additional P99 if you opt for a 12 month lock-in. This is somewhat vague since Globe did not allow us to go for a 12 month lock-in period. We’re forced to accept the bundled unlicall offer on a 24 months contract. Well, my father was also forced to buy a Globe sim card so that we can use this unlimited call feature. Haha.

Separate Billing Statements

Although you only availed a single plan, the statement of account for the internet connection and the wireless landline is given on two separate billing. Additional charges like fees for text messages and other text/call/internet promos you availed will reflect in the statement for the wireless landline. Entertainment packs like Spotify or HOOQ will be on top of the MRF of the internet connection billing.

Verdict

So far, we are contented with Globe LTE service. Surprisingly, we do not experience slow loading of pages even there are 3 users online and doing active tasks. I even shared the connection with our neighborhood. They are able to connect and enjoy fast* wifi access for free. 🙂 Of course, when we are not using it. The speed is auto distributed and higher priority is for our residence. How is it possible? I am planning to make a tutorial about it. (Tip: Using a Tomato enabled Wifi router). Check the article about Create a Guest Wireless Network in Tomato (Isolated Guest WiFi). I just turn off the guest portal when I sense some signs of sluggishness.

*considered fast here in PH. 😛

What I like about Globe LTE Home Broadband:

  • fast and reliable
  • cheap
  • unlicalls to globe phone bundle

What I dislike:

  • Current promos today are almost no way to go

The Wrongly Future

Globe launched a new “consumable” tactic on both DSL/wired and LTE plans. This move is very disappointing as the service becomes too limited. The following new plan scheme for Globe LTE Home Broadband will apply on all plans installed on March 12, 2015 onwards:

Globe Tattoo Postpaid Plans

Entertainment Packs/Bandwidth Allocation

Globe recently tied a partnership with HOOQ. HOOQ provides a video streaming service that is “premium” for Globe LTE home broadband subscribers. Spotify and NBA League are also services included in the new plans. These two already exist before but they are just options or a choice that time. When Globe first introduced this new scheme, the Plan 1099 is limited to a 10GB transfer per month. That is absurd. I rather go prepaid and have 30GB/month (1GB/day) data allocation.

However, Globe slightly responded  to the complaints of consumers. They increased the monthly limit of Globe LTE Plan 1099 to 20GB that is well – still – NOT ENOUGH. DSL plans were also modified shortly and a 50GB allocation per month was set for Plan 1299. The Plan 999 was no longer included as a Starter Plan. Plan 999 (LTE only) has been available again for areas that has no bundled landline. It has a maximum speed of 2mbps with a 20GB bandwidth allocation per month.

Old Plan vs. New Plan

We are lucky to sign up before these new scheme was announced. We can still enjoy a maximum of 5GB bandwidth transfer per day. That is about 150GB a month. That is good enough for mid to heavy users at a home setting (2-3). On the old plan scheme, speeds will be lowered to 30% when quota has been reached. On the new Globe LTE Home plans, the quota became monthly and the subscriber should avail boosters or additional GBs (Volume Add-ons) or else they will get disconnected. the speed will go down to an unusable and sluggish 64kbps. See Globe LTE Home Broadband Plans.

March 10, 2016: As commented by a subscriber from the new plan, Mr. Jayson Curtiz did not yet experience the 64kbps throttled speed once the limit was reached. Instead, speed will be throttled to 30% of subscribed speed (like the old plan). This is to confirm for others too as he is currently subscribed to a DSL Line. Scenario on a LTE plan might be different. Thanks for the input, Jayson!

As confirmed by other subscribers, speed will be throttled down to 30% once you consumed your monthly data allowance.

In Philippine Internet Consumers’ Feet

Globe forces subscribers to avail the higher plans to get “unlimited” limited service. Shame on you Globe! Same with Smart as well. These two practices market oligopoly to the extremes. They are consistently saying that the same consumable scheme is implemented on other countries. But hey, they do it only on mobile plans, not on DSL and others. Implementing it on home broadband and DSL is an overkill and shows greediness for more money. I hope another telecommunications company will enter the Philippine market so that services will become better. Not becoming worst. Also, NTC appeared to be neglecting the issue and not doing anything about it. What do we expect anyway?

Internet speeds are remarkably slower in Philippines compared to other developing countries but the price is high. But, we should be still thankful that we are not on the extreme sides. For now, I am just hoping that when we renew the contract, better choices of plans for Globe LTE will be available.

GLOBE LTE Home Broadband Alternatives

There is an alternative way to still get unlimited internet/bandwidth from Globe. If you did not signed up yet for home broadband, you may want to get a GoSurf Plan with Anti-Bill Shock.

GoSurf Postpaid Plan with Anti-Bill Shock (ABS)

For example, if you are thinking on availing the Plan 1599 from Home Broadband that has a maximum speed of 5mbps and 50GB allocation per month, availing the GoSurf Plan 999 will be a good choice. GoSurf 999 has 5GB per month allocation but with Anti-Bill Shock, you will virtually get unlimited bandwidth. Meaning, if you exceeded the 5GB allocation, you will be charged on a normal rate per MB but the charging will stop when you reached P1,500 because of the Anti-Bill Shock feature. You can use more than 50GB per month but still pay a maximum of P1,500. However, the choice of devices will be different and there may be an additional cost depending on the lock-in period and the device you choose. If you do not tend to use the unlicall “freebie” and want to have more flexibility and portability, GoSurf plan is the way to go.

GoSurf has a maximum speed of 12mbps depending on your area. Speed will not be throttled even you exceeded the data allocation.

Fate of Internet Service in PH

May 21. Philippines is  currently ranked 176th out of 201 countries in internet speed. As of May 2015, Netindex recorded an average of 3.65 mbps download speed (See: Philippines NetIndex). This figure put the country on 2nd to the last spot in  the whole Asia with Afghanistan on the last spot. Yes. The war country Afghanistan. Yet, Philippines is among the most expensive internet connection in the world. This issue should be addressed seriously by the government  as we are so left behind with the neighboring countries in terms of internet services.

What is your internet service provider? Are you satisfied with their service?

  • Irma Ygot

    Thanks for the info… I like globe tattoo broadband also. It is what I use at home. I really am greatful to have read these. I thought of changing my plan, guess i have to stick with the old plan. ????

    • Raz

      Hi. You’re welcome, Ms. Irma! Sticking to the old plan will be the best choice for now. The new plans with “entertainment bundle” are deceiving! With the fact that the bandwidth consumed with those perks is counted against the monthly allocation. I feel sorry for those who had already migrated to the new plans or those who just signed up for Globe Home Broadband. I hope the old scheme will be offered again soon, and shall NTC do something with this.

  • Shen Asuncion

    Hi! We’re planning to avail of a Globe LTE plan as well. Regarding the “wireless landline” that they give you, is it just a phone with a sim that uses a landline number like PLDT’s wireless landlines? And if it is, could we put the landline’s sim card in another phone? The phone’s perks are great but nobody really needs a stationary landline these days.

    • Raz

      Hi, Ms. Shen! Yes, you can insert the homephone’s SIM card into another phone. The wireless landline is like a separate postpaid account that is just preloaded with a free Super Homephone subscription.

      At home setting, the supplied unit really works well. There is a charging dock supplied so that it looks like a real landline. You can also bring with you the supplied unit if you want but it is bulky and not ideal to use while on travel. 😛

  • Anti Philippine Government

    I have a question, what do you mean by this “GoSurf 999 has 5GB per month allocation but with Anti-Bill Shock, you will virtually get unlimited bandwidth. Meaning, if you exceeded the 5GB allocation, you will be charged on a normal rate per MB but the charging will stop when you reached P1,500 because of the Anti-Bill Shock feature. You can use more than 50GB per month but still pay a maximum of P1,500” if I’m not mistaken every mb that you consume after you have used up all your data allowance you will be charged by 2 pesos, if lets say I go with that 5GB 999 plan to reach the anti bill shock cap of 1500, I will only have to use 250.1MB and not 50GB…..

    I got this from globe website….

    I registered to GoSURF, what happens when I use up my MB allocation?
    Your succeeding internet connections will be charged P2 per MB. But surf worry free with anti-bill shock features of P1,500 max data bill cap for plans 299 to 999, and P3,000 for plans 1799 and 2499.

    • Raz

      Yes, you are correct. What I meant to say here is that whether you (or I) use 250.1MB data (as per your computation) or 1GB, 2GB, 50GB and so on as exceedance to the 5GB allocation, you will be still charge the maximum of P1,500 per month. This is because of Anti Bill Shock feature. I hope I already clarified the statement.

  • WaltC Kawet

    F*U*C*K GLOBE SMART PLDT very expensive plans… in the first month the speed is fast and stable but after that wtf!!! the internet connection will go slow and dc……… there must be other provider that better that this sHiiitt telecom………..

    • Raz

      I had experienced what you said on Smart/PLDT but not on Globe. It really depends on the area where you are living.

      I guess you are pertaining to Telstra as the other “better” provider here that might enter PH soon. I hope Telstra is really a better one.

  • KG Camz

    gud am..it is my first time to avail the lte home broadband..it was installed last Nov.22 but we already consumed the 20GB monthly allocation as of today Dec. 05 because my kids love to watch youtube, play online games and download games..my questions are: 1. since the speed will become sluggish..will the accumulated mbps after the monthly allocation be added to the bill ’til it reach 1 month?
    2. since the first month was already paid plus installation (1099+ 200)..when will the bill arrive?is it January? (installed Nov. 22)
    Hoping for your answer soon..it will help me understand..

    • Raz

      First, I want to apologize since I am replying only now, my blog went offline a day ago due to a power surge on my host’s data center. To answer your question, you can buy volume packages or add-ons so that you can still surf at maximum speed of your plan. If you opt not to buy, then you need to be use to the sluggish connection you had now at least, until your cut-off. Your bill will arrive on the date that your account has been activated, usually it is the installation date or as stated by the technician who installed it.

      The new LTE plans are not designed for heavy downloader as you’ll easily reach the monthly allocation. Well, you can always buy volume packs to increase your bandwidth (not speed) but with an additional cost.

  • Jayson Curtiz

    informative review. thanks! i guess it really depends on the area. i had a globe tech yesterday for a DSL installation and according to the tech it’s not possible though i’m really not convinced with what he said because my kapitbahay is using globe DSL. I just gave up arguing with him. He suggested this LTE home broadband connection which brought me here ^^. I also have a pending application with PLDT Ultera. Paunahan na lang sila install sa bahay. May the worst Telco win. lol. I have very good smart reception on my mobile at home and globe really sucks but with their broadband i’m just hoping both (PLDT and GLOBE) provides better service. I’m from Makati.

    • Raz

      Hi Jayson! Thank you! 🙂 Yes, Not all technicians really knew about the availability of services they’re offering. Or they are forcing people to go wireless since it will be easier for them to do the installation? Haha. So what’s the status? What service provider are you with now? I hope okay naman ang performance ng unang nakapaginstall sa bahay niyo.

      • Jayson Curtiz

        Hey there! The following day after i post a comment here globe went to the house and installed the DSL. lol. I pressured them and threatened to cancel my platinum postpaid subscription. Haha it worked! So far i’m satisfied with the service. I’m on 3Mbps, 50GB cap per month 1299 with free landline. No issues yet. ^_^ Hopefully it’ll continue to work the way it is working now. As for PLDT. hah! my application is still pending up until now. Haven’t called them yet to cancel it, well in fact, i’m really not planning to call them. Lol,

        • Raz

          I’m glad you finally got the plan you really want!

          And for PLDT, I think Globe is way better compared to them (not considering the current 50GB monthly cap of globe). 🙂 Anyway, we’re on our 10th month with Globe, still did not experience any major problem with the service.

          Thanks for sharing your experience here! 😀

          • Jayson Curtiz

            Crossing my fingers! haha Hope it’ll work just fine. My kapitbahay told me na their connection is really really slow. They’re with Globe. But i didn’t bother to ask for their plan. I shied away from “negativity”. LoL.

  • freezebox

    What I don’t like is after our phone has been activated I received lots of bogus text messages a bait to send load for them. How come my sim is new is this a modus?

    • Raz

      Hi freezebox! We’re experiencing the same. We are even receiving messages about credit cards, loans and others. This is somewhat annoying because there are times that messages we’re sent on a late night. Well, I am not bothered with it now since the sim is now being used by my cousin. But, I am still thinking if these people knew the number range of postpaid subscribers or did globe “sold” our numbers to them. 🙂

      • judi

        I also have the same situation about the bait of sending load to them. In fact my Inbox’ messages are full of numbers asking for those bogus texts.. I already reported this through online anti Scam of Globe and still I keep on receiving them. Pft. 🙁

        • Raz

          Hi Judi. Maybe the temporary solution for now is to blacklist those numbers so that they won’t be able to contact you or else automatically hide the messages they sent. I am not sure if the supplied phone has this feature for messages. But on a smartphone, you can do it.

  • histrionicdeity

    Hi! I just availed the Globe Broadband LTE Bundle Plan 1299 (with landline). My concern now is, if we reach the 30GB (3MBPS) allocation per month, how much will be charged on top of our usual MSF, sans the amortization of the “installation fee” and “activation fee”. Do you know how much will be charged per volume exceeded? Or will it still remain 1299 for the Internet but with slower speed?

    • Raz

      Hello, no, you won’t be charged automatically if you exceeded the 30GB data allowance but you’ll experience a sluggish 64kbps speed. This is the sceneario unless you register a Volume Boost add-on that costs P50 for 1 GB, P200 for 5GB and 300 for P10GB.

      • histrionicdeity

        I see. Lol with the 64 kbps. Thank you! 🙂

    • Jayson Curtiz

      Hi there. I experienced this with my plan last month. I’m on plan 1299 3mbps 50GB per month. I experienced a lil bit slow internet connection but not really noticeable, I can even still stream videos with just a little bit of buffering. I exceeded 7GB haha. Yes, you’re not gonna get charged. I think there’s some kind of an anti-bill shock or something.

      • Raz

        Hello Jayson! Good to hear from you again here! It seems like you’re enjoying your plan. 😀 and one thing, that sound’s good as the 64kbps printed note for the new plans is just absurd. Haha. Maybe they had retained the original throttling of the OLD plans (speed will go down to 30% of your subscribe speed when you exceeded the daily limit.)

      • Raz

        Hi Jayson, I hope you don’t mind. I had added this information on the main article. Thank you! It will be good too if you can again confirm that the throttling really works that way on your next billing cycle(s).

        • Jayson Curtiz

          Hello Raz. Yeah, sure no problem. I forgot to mention that when i exceeded 7GB on my 50GB allowance last month a ran a speedtest and the result was 1Mbps. So still quite good given the fact that i’ve already gone over my usage. As of this month i’m on 16GB and watching movies in netflix everyday and i haven’t really noticed any sluggishness on the connection (or maybe i’m just not exceeding the daily cap, if there’s any). still a happy camper so far. ^^

  • Je-röhlt Ar

    Hello. thanks for the latest review by the way. Is the modem our’s after we decided to terminate our account? About the Super Home Phone. After the contract expires will we be required to pay Php 599 fee monthly? because in the bill it states “Free 24 Months”? thanks in advance..

    • Raz

      Hi, yes the modem is yours if you terminate your account, provided that you had paid for the 3 months installment for it (distributed on your first three monthly bill). No, you are not required to pay for the Super Homephone, it is a bundled service so if your contract expires or you terminated it, the homephone will be terminated as well. Or else, you negotiate with globe to convert it to a stand alone plan.

      • Je-röhlt Ar

        Hey. thanks for the immediate reply. As confirmed we won’t be paying extra fee for the landline once our contract is up. We were quite lucky to have our account remained on per Day volume cap though the technician that came after the migration was quite lazy to install the antenna on the roof and he kept on insisting that it will switch to 20 GB per month once migrated. but when i called the CSR numerous times, they confirmed that our account is still on per day basis and was eve upgraded to 5 GB/day from 3gb/day. i’m gonna hold on this plan forever. I just feel sorry to those who were capped per month

        • Raz

          Thanks for the update! About the bandwidth, as commented here by Jayson, he doesn’t yet experience being throttled to 64kbps as indicated by Globe. It is much like the old plans that speed will go down to 30% of your subscribed speed once limit has been reached. Well, the mean difference here is that the 5GB per day became 20GB per month. (Plan 1099, LTE/wireless) I am thankful that we applied before the migration, the only thing that I regret is that we should selected a higher plan that time.

  • wendy

    Sir, i just want to ask ,kinukuha ba ang modem pag na terminate ang account?

    • Raz

      Hindi na po. Provided na you got your plan terminated after 3months (from date of installation).

      • wendy

        provided? what do u mean sir, i have to provide something? how do you know that info sir,

        • Raz

          I mean, kung nakapagbayad ka na ng atleast 3months, kasi yun yung time na binabayaran mo yung modem. Kumbaga early termination of service. If naterminate like end of contract na sa globe naman, Yes, the modem is yours.

          • wendy

            meaning to say sir, after 3 months ko sya bayaran tapos di ko na sya babayaran aantayin ko nalang globe mismo mag cut ng line ko, pwede ba yun sir?

          • Raz

            bakit hindi mo babayaran? hindi ba ok ang service? mabagal?Please be noted na may early termination fee ang globe. P2500 ATA plus twice your monthly service fee.

            If you are interested only with the modem, para i-openline ito to use another network, I doubt if it is possible for the newly issued units. Also, yung ibang technician, kukunin yang modem mo pag nagcut ng line. sasabihin nila, kasama yun pero actually binayaran mo na yun at a discounted price (pinakitang installation fee yun, I am not sure kung pano yung nakaavail naman ng free installation).

  • Lorraine

    please help me decide if i will still push through my Globe LTE plan 1,599 application.. the installation will be today and I’ve been hesitant after I read your comments below.. huhuhu

    • Raz

      Hi Lorraine, what particular comments is this about? those spam messages or the limited bandwidth allocation? In my opinion, you should still push through your application, for bandwidth allocation, it is still good enough for home setting. provided na di ka heavy downloader or youtube streamer.

  • Jerry

    Hey Raz…very accurate information about Globe Home Internet, i went to other sites and i found yours very informative and accurate, Though i have a question that i’ve been looking in this discussion but couldn’t find any…i may be probably the first one to ask about it…

    • Raz

      Thanks for your kind appreciation Jerry! Will respond to your query on your next comment. 🙂

  • Jerry

    -It is about the Billing Statement that we are going to receive each month, since it is our first month to receive a statement, but only through the Home Phone text…and the only Bill showing was the Phone and not the internet data used. I tried logging in to Gobe My account and still the same, it is only showing the Phone Bill and not Internet Usage Billing. Well, do you have any idea where to find this Statements or do i have to contact Customer service to find out where it is…(Honestly, i hate talking to them, they are not really helpful at all.)

    • Raz

      Did you signed up in paperless billing? If yes, you will receive your billing statements in the email you had given to them when you opened your account. The billing statement for the homephone and internet is separate. That’s the reason why you can’t check the internet data that has been used using the phone or the globe account. If you are knowledgeable about your account number, use it to add your Tattoo Broadband on Globe MyAccount. If not, ask the CSR through chat.globe.com.ph about your account number and they will give it to you. Do not say anything that is too complicated to understand as the customer service might misinterpret what you are saying. haha. Good luck! Just be patient, the CSR will supply you the information you need, well, sometimes. 😀

  • Jerry

    -i apologize for some of my rude words there, i edited it…just wanted to find some answers and i find your the only one i found that have patience and kind hearted to spend time like us, seeking some advices and true answers:)

    • Raz

      It is perfectly fine Jerry. No need to apologize. I am also a customer and I experienced that too with some CSRs assigned for my queries. 🙂

  • Jerry

    -Thank’s Raz…i will do what you said, i actually went to Globe at SM telling me that it was sent thru Email, Spam & inbox, But when i check there is no messages from Globe at all. As of now..i am still trying to talk to them and change the Email Add.
    -Goodluck to me…Again, salamat Buddy, Your Very helpfull, continue helping people and the Lord will Bless you…=’)

    • Raz

      I suggest that using the chat service is better. But do it on non-peak hours like early morning. or else, mag-aantay ka ng sobrang tagal bago may maassign sayo. Thank you very much for the motivating words. God bless you too! 😀

  • John

    Hello! I subscribed to Tattoo Plan 1099. I’m worried because I already exeeded the 20GB cap but the speed remains ok hindi 64kbps. I am afraid na baka meron extra charges. Meron nga po ba? Thank you!

    • Jayson Curtiz

      Hi there John! i also experienced the same last month. I exceed 7GB and my speed wasn’t really affected. I already received my bill and I don’t see any charge for the over usage so i guess what the globe rep told me when i called was true! ^_^ Please confirm here once you receive your bill.

      • John

        Thank you Mr. Jayson. By the way, what did the Globe rep told you? It means that there is no such thing as 64kbps speed when you used up your data cap?

        • Jayson Curtiz

          I haven’t specifically asked that part. I was just concerned about by bill back then haha. If i remember it right, she told me that i’m not gonna get charged for the over usage but my speed’s going to be slow. Though i haven’t really experienced it much. So as with the 64kbps speed, haven’t exp it yet and hopefully never will. 😀

          • John

            Yeah, hopefully never will because looks like were already enjoying unlimited internet. Hahaha. :’D Based on our experiences, mukhang ibinalik na nila yung scheme ng old plan but im not really sure about it. I hope hindi na magbabago.. Haha. XD

  • Jonel

    hi , nag subscribed po ako plan 1599 , March 16 sila nag kabit then sabi nila is iaactivate pa daw.

    1. how long po ba para ma activate ?
    2. upon activation ko palang malalaman ung account number ko ?
    3. sabi po nila is free data pa daw habang di pa naacctivate based sa review nyo sir umaabot din sakin ng 2mbps pero madalas 0.50mbps , okey lang po ba ung ganun hindi pa sya stable kasi di pa activated ?
    4. since first time ko lang po , kelan ko po i-e-expect yung bill?

    salamat po sa sasagot gusto ko lang po malinawan.

  • Ralph

    0.80mbps ang capping ng Globe pag nag exceed ka na sa monthly data allowance mo.

    • Jonel

      para po ba sakin to ? kasi po halos kakastart lang wala pa 10gb yung nagagamit ko ganun na po yung speed . btw 50gb po yung capping pag plan 1599

      • Raz

        Hi Jonel. You should be experiencing your subscribed speed now. Kasi nung March 16 pa naikabit kaya dapat activated na yan. naginquire ka na ba sa globe about the status of your plan?

        • Jonel

          hello po as of now activated na po sya pero yung speed is 0.20 Mbps – 0.70 Mbps lang po na gagamit ko . isang android phone lang ang nakaconnect and patay ang pc puro speed test lang ginagawa ko .

          nakailan ulit na rin po ako mag live chat puro checking nalang sinasabi nila. napapaisip na po tuloy ako i pa cut yung connection namin.

          • Raz

            pero full bar naman ang signal ng modem?

          • Jonel

            opo full bar naman siya , minsan 2bar.

          • Raz

            Try mo po idisconnect ang antenna if you have one or ilipat ng pwesto ang modem, same din ang speed kapag naka direct sa LAN, sa PC? kung ganun pa rin, magrequest ka naicheck ng globe yung connection niyo, na may magpupuntang technician, before ka magpacut, para may proof ka na hindi ok sa area niyo ang service.

          • Jonel

            na try ko na po i disconnect ung antenna . hindi ko pa na try ilipat yung modem ko . pano po ako mag rerequest ng techinician ? . nakailan ulit na po kasi ako mag live chat wala parin onsite visit

          • Jonel

            hello sir update ko lang po kayo. as of now ok na po sya nilipat ng tatay ko yung antenna sa mas mataas na lugar.

          • Raz

            Hi Jonel! Buti naman at ok na ang connection mo, sa placing lang pala ng antenna ang problema? so 5mbps na talaga ang speed ngayon?

          • Jonel

            hi sir, yes sa lugar lang kung saan nakalagay yung antenna . parang nag mamadali kasi yung install samin ee . buti nilipat ng tatay ko sa mas mataas na lugar. yup nakaka received na ako ng 5mbps pag umaga at mga 12 am . pag tanghali di ko pa sure may work kasi ako weekdays. pag gabi nmn mga 2mbps lang .

          • Raz

            Buti naman at naging ok na, pero mas ok kung pati gabi, 5mbps pa rin. Haha.

            We are facing problems too about the antenna placement now, parang humina yung signal compared before. That’s why minsan e nagdrodrop ang speed, pero may 1 day naman na naignore ata ng system ang speed limit ng account namin at naging 15mbps ang speed. Pero bumalik din sa normal kinabukasan. Patikim lang. haha. Well, at least I know na possible yung speed under home broadband sa lugar namin (medyo remote kasi, wala ngang linya ng kahit anong DSL e.)

    • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

      Sakin, 0.60 (600Kbps)

      • Raz

        Hi Eildriz, pwede ba malaman kung ano ang current plan mo? Salamat.

        • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

          Plan 1099 (2 Mbps), Ayan yung speed mo kapag naka-capped kana. Oo, nga pala pang-minsan 18Mbps speed ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit pero nagiging ganun pangminsan. Mukhang nag-uupgrade na ng speed yung Globe para sa mga broadband plans nila. At saka may bago silang announced na plans. Should be out by this Month or next Month. Under review pa daw.

          • Raz

            Hi, thanks sa info. Do you know if this new unannounced plans e covered din ang LTE users (not only DSL)? Kasi pag nalaunch na ito, magiging competitive na ang Globe sa PLDT sa pricing and speed.

            Yes, I am experiencing that too. kaso 15mbps palang ang peak, at twice palang nangyari, though pag weekends lang nagagamit mostly ang net connection namin sa bahay.

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            As far as I know, This plan will be available for both LTE and DSL users. Kahit hindi pa na-announce ng Globe sa tingin sa ganung speed mababa lang yung capp ng mga plan na ito. Siguro mga below 50GB yung data allocation ng mga plan na ito.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5287774309f746acc6c38f75d691012131bcb8a2026c6e3681b2a588e2e0d6d3.png

            Ayan yung sinabi sakin ng Globe tungkol sa bagong plan nila.

          • Raz

            Let’s look forward with this. Sana positive naman ang outcome neto para sa ting mga consumers. Thanks Eildriz!

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            Globe is being competitive these days. Nabasa niyo na po ba yung statement ng PLDT tungkol sa earnings nila nung 2015? Sabi ng PLDT chairman, Mahigit 5 Million Subscribers yung nawala sa kanila last year. Lahat ng mga subscribers na iyo nag-switch ng Globe. Tapos about naman sa profit. Mas mababa yung earnings nila last year kaysa 2014. Globe seems promising these days. Mabilis naman yung network nila. Ang pinakamalaking downside lang is yung capping.

          • Raz

            Yep, kaya ngayon, grabe si PLDT magoffer ng discounts sa plans nila.

            Yun nga lang, may cap kasi talaga, ok lang naman na may cap, basta sana mas mataas naman sana ang ceiling.

            Today might be a good day since there are rumors that globe will be launching the new ADSL plans today, sana kasama din ang LTE plans. haha.

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            🙏 Sana nga i-launch na nila ngayon yung bago nilang plans.

            Nga pala may offer yung PLDT HOME Ultera (Yung LTE Broadband ng PLDT) hanggang May 31.
            *Plan 699 — 3Mbps (30GB)
            *Plan 999 — 5Mbps (50GB)
            *Plan 1599 — 10Mbps (70GB)

            Na-experience ko na yung Ultera speed sa bahay ng Tita ko. Hindi ganoon sa promise speed yung binibigay nila. Mas ok pa rin yung Globe.

          • Raz

            Sana nga at kung mas ok e makapagmigrate na.:-D

            Hindi available ang PLDT ultera samin, karamihan na gamit ay Globe lang talaga. Dun sa naabot naman ng DSL lines, ayun, PLDT sila.

            Atleast 50% ba naman nung speed e naibibigay? nung natry mo?

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            3 Mbps yung Plan ng Tita ko. Mostly 600Kbps-1.2Mbps lang yung nakukuha. Kapag naka-capped naman 300Kbps yung speed.

            May I know po kung ano yung current broadband niyo?

          • Raz

            ang layo naman sa promised speed.

            Same plan lang tayo, Plan 1099.

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            Still patiently waiting for new plans to arrive :'(

          • Raz

            New plans will be announce on May 2. 🙂 sana ito na talaga yung final date.

          • Eildriz Niño Guanzon

            Last question, May I know kung sa NCR lang yung mga bagong plans magiging available? O, sa buong Pilipinas?

          • Raz

            Sadly, hindi pa rin naannnounce ang new plans until this day. Pero mas detailed na yung info about it, I have updated the article. And yes, sa lahat siya magiging available basta ok ang area mo sa old plan.

          • Driz_12

            Nakipag-partnership sila dun sa Astro (Malaysian Cable Company). Baka isasabay na ng Globe dun sa plan announcement yung mga plans na may bundle with Tribe (Video Streaming Service by Astro).

          • Yam Mashori

            HI RAZ, na announce na ba yung new plans ng globe broadband?

          • james mark fernandez

            hi, kakainstall lang samin. ask ko lang kung kaya pa magonline game if capped na ang plan? tia

          • Driz_12

            Yes, Walang problema kahit nakacapped kana. Ganun pa rin yung ping pero yung download speed syempre mabagal kasi down to 30% na lang ng original speed mo. I can still play CSGO without lag. Ping 60-100

          • james mark fernandez

            okay thank you for this sir. good to hear that btw im playing dota2 okay naman speed. stable signal sa area ko

    • Raz

      Hi Ralph! pwede ba malaman kung ano ang current plan mo? Salamat.

  • Atom

    Hi Raz,
    Do you have any idea on their Plan 1299 which includes free landline plus wired internet with speed of up to 2Mbps and a 2GB data cap per day? Can you share more details or any reviews?
    Thanks.

    • Jonel

      meron silang per day capping ? alam ko po per month ee. di ko lang sure

    • Raz

      Hi Atom, i’m on the same side with Jonel. I am not knowledgeable about the said plan atleast, under Globe Home Broadband. As far as I know, they already phased out all the plans that has daily cap and introduced the monthly cap instead. In the older plans, 2mbps (Plan 1099) has 5GB limit per day, and 30% of that speed for any bandwidth in excess. This is still the plan we are using with Globe.

    • HappyThoughts

      Hi I’m also with the new plan 1299 2mbps I wa stold na unlimited ito, the only problem is I need at least .5mbs download or upload speed pero di nya nareach yung upload speed needed ko for my work I hope na dahil lang to sa reason nakakapakabit ko

  • Kadeem Buenavista Arenas

    hi raz, just want to ask what if nag exceed ako sa 30 gig limit? mawawala po ba yung connection? globe lte plan 1299 this is my plan. thanks

    • Raz

      Hi Kadeem, as commented here by different users in this article thread, you will be still connected even when you exceeded the 30GB limit. I can’t confirm this myself as we are currently subscribed on the old plan. Please read the comments regarding this. Thanks!

    • Asha’man

      If you exceed bandwidth limit, magiging 30% of subscribed speed na lang ang makukuha mo. Unlimited na yun.

  • Nicole C

    Hi Raz!
    Thank you for this very helpful review!
    Just called globe sales earlier and planning on getting an LTE HOME BROADBAND ALSO.
    Plan 1099 along with the free unli calls and texts landline.. Very informative ang review mo and also these commenets were very helpful

    We currently have PLDT ULTERA on our household and grabe. Super slow!! As in try watching a 3min vid on YouTube the buffering takes so long pa.
    I dont mind paying for extra broadband at home and the pldt can be used by others pero im planning to use the globe broadband solely for my skype usage only kasi dito ng rrely work ko ngayon do you think it can handle skype calls?
    Kasi our ULTERA today cant even make my Skype STAY online for an hour straight
    And very frustrating ang PLDT services ngayon kasi bbili ako ng volume booster di ka naman makapag link ng account online.. Haha sorry for the very long rant

    • Raz

      Thank you for those kind words Nicole! I am glad we are able to help you! 🙂

      The 2mbps plan (the current Plan 1099) will be good and more than enough for skype video calls. Tapos intended solely lang pala ang plano mo for that. Just make sure that you have good Globe reception in your area to get the advertised speed. About the bundled landline, are you sure it is also with unli texts? The ones we have is only unlicalls to Globe/Tm.

      Haha. That’s fine. Customers lang tayo dito pareho and we must get the service that matches what we had paid/are paying diba. Hoping ako for the new plans of Globe as being talked about in the comments. mas madaming lilipat pag nagkataon. 🙂

      • Nicole C

        Yes Calls & text globe to globe and unli NDD calls within area code daw :D, It comes with a Wireless landine ( that you can bring anywhere daw) parang cellphone na hahah.

        plano namin mag disconnect sa PLDT but the terms is you have to pay for the remaining months ng 24month contract mo I feel like were throwing away money sa PLDT talaga…

        • Raz

          Hi Nicole! How is it going? NakaGlobe Broadband ka na ba?

          Sobra naman yung babayaran mo lahat, edi huwag nalang din ipadisconnect kung ganun.

          • Nicole C

            Hi ! Not okay 😂😂 lol very frustrating Globe here sa area namin as of now is very congested daw but theres an on going upgrading of the cell sites so I’ll try to call them in 2-3 weeks or so .. Tapos we will try to go sa PLDT center para iclarify and demand an upgrade :)) pano ba naman kasi they wont ket us upgrade pa hahaha

          • Raz

            so naikabit na yung globe niyo? haha.

            bakit ayaw ng PLDT na magupgrade kayo?

          • Nicole C

            No hindi Raz because congested it would result in slow connection kasi mag aagawan kayo sa LTE 🙂 Ewan ko ba sa pldt, they said na may on going promo kasi ULTERA kaya basal upgrade.. it made no sense.. =)) and kapag switch ka to DSL or Fibr. you’d have to Disconnect the Ultera para mag avail nun

  • Asha’man

    Well it looks like they are already capping Go Surf Plans that have ABS.

    • Raz

      Ohhh. May I know how “intense” the capping is? 😀

      • Joshua

        Pa epal, na reach ko na rin yung limit ko na 5gig. May cap ata pag nag d-dl ka. 67-70 KB/sec lang hahaha.

        Pero hindi ganyan yung literal na speed pag nag bro-browse ka. Mabilis naman mag load yung mga ibang site.

      • Asha’man

        Im not subscribed to any post paid plans but I just see others have posted that they have been capped with 120+gb of data.

    • Joshua

      Pa epal, na reach ko na rin yung limit ko na 5gig. May cap ata pag nag d-dl ka. 67-70 KB/sec lang hahaha.

      Pero hindi ganyan yung literal na speed pag nag bro-browse ka. Mabilis naman mag load yung mga ibang site.

  • Marvel Artuz

    Hi Raz, same internet addict here. I can use upto 2GB data in a day which costs me too much in prepaid. Do you think plan 1299 would be enough? I am having a hard time choosing between LTE 1299 and 1599. Hays.

    • Raz

      Hi Marvel, if you have some more patience and time to wait (:-P),wait for the new Rubicon plans, they might be better for you. 🙂

      For the current plans, I am not advising you to get the Plan 1299. Because once you consumed the data allowance, speed will go down to ~0.9mbps.

      • Marvel Artuz

        Thanks! I’ll wait for the Rubicon a bit.

  • Roberto Asino

    The good thing about Globe now customer service now improved. Mas gusto ko ang customer service ng Globe compare sa PLDT, terible talaga sa PLDT. Anyway I subscribe to 1599 LTE broadband nila sa sunday pa ikakabit..

    • Raz

      Hi Roberto! Good to hear that! Did you get the Plan 1599 that still has 50GB/60GB data allowance?

  • Maria Andrea Montealto

    If naka globe homebroadband 1599- 60gb ako wired hindi LTE, tapos gusto ko mag movie/series streaming sa putlocker, malakas ba makaconsume yun?

    • Raz

      Hi, a 720p movie is about 800mb-1GB in size, it depends on the quality of movie you will be watching.

    • Isabella Summer

      Mabilis ba yung dsl nio?

  • Yam Mashori

    hi raz, I saw this ad online, do u have any idea when this will be available?
    100 gb monthly daw and cap

    • Raz

      Hi, new tentative announcement date for new broadband plans will be on June 1. Ow, only available for NCR Cavite and Cebu? I hope this is only for fibre based on the ad.

      • Yam Mashori

        hi thank you raz, what does fibre base ad means? im cancelling my new application for plan 1299 3 mbps 30 lte bec i read from your blog to wait a little… im here in quezon city. so you think by june 1, they’ll be offering the new broadband plans? thank you again

        • Raz

          Hi, sorry for replying only now. Customer service reps of Globe is inconsistent about the details of this new plans. but pretty sure it will be announced by the month of June. Fiber is a newer technology, faster and more stable (lower latency, better for gaming, etc) than DSL. Currently Globe Home broadband plans are ADSL (wired) and LTE (wireless) based. On current offering, Only platinum plans are on fibre. So, the new plans is much worth waiting. Hoping those are really better.

  • Michael Angelo Pagara

    Ask ko lang ano ung actual speed ko kapag nareach ko ung 20 GB monthly allowance? Ang plan ko 1099 2mbps …New plan to as stated sa article mo.. thanks 🙂

    • Raz

      Hi Michael, 0.60mbps or 75KB/sec. 🙂

      • Michael Angelo Pagara

        Ouch! :'( …thanks. ang bagal

        • Anne Torres

          Pwede po mgtanong after maubos ng 20gb mo nagagamit mo paba sya ng maayos?

  • SpaceX

    kaya ba ng plan 1299 dsl yung online games like dota 2, tuwing gabi lang nman magagamit after work at tuwing linggo, kaya kaya nun yung 50gb allocation per month. Thanks

    • Raz

      Hi, Yes SpaceX, kaya yan.. Even kasi ma-hit mo yung allocation, ping is still the same, good for gaming pa rin.

      • SpaceX

        Wired po yun dba? oh may policy si Globe na kapag may LTE sa area yun yung gagamitin samin.

        • Raz

          pwede ka naman mamili, provided na kaya pa ng box ng DSL sa inyo na ihandle connection mo. Sa case ng area namin, walang DSL kaya LTE lang talaga.

          • SpaceX

            Thank you po pla sa reply, buti dito sa article mo mabilis mag reply sa ibang site wala man lng reply. anu po pala istura nung LTE na modem Sir?

          • Raz

            Ganito po yung LTE modem namin. Huawei B593 ang model:

          • SpaceX

            yung speed po ba ng net kapag umuulan o malakas hangin retain parin o bumabagal na?

          • Raz

            still the same. Pero due to location siguro ito, kasi malapit lang kami sa tower ng globe. Globe provied us an antenna to use, pero di na namin ginagamit for almost a month na since bumabagal pag speed/inconsistent ang speed pag nakaantenna. I don’t know kung may problem ang antenna or due to on going upgrade ng globe (to offer the new Rubicon plans)

          • SpaceX

            Okay, Salamat

          • Raz

            Walang anuman. 🙂

  • Asha’man

    According to CSR the new(rubicon) lte plans for LTE are 3mbps(30gb – P699) and 5mbps (50gb – P999). She says that the higher plans are to be phased out. So if you want to have a higher plan, now is the time to upgrade kasi hindi na daw available yung higher plans pag nandyan na si Rubicon.

    • Raz

      Wew. I’ll try to talk to a CSR again later. This move is absurd if that is true. Why limit the available plans/speed if they’re already able to provide 15mbps before, then offering those only on DSL? Yes, those two plans are plans of Rubicon, but I believe they are the budget-friendly plans only.

      • Asha’man

        Yup it’s really a step backwards with LTE. Btw if you avail of the 5mbps and consumed your 50gb, you only get 1.5mbps after that. It’s more logical to get their 2mbps with daily cap since 50gb is so easy to consume within a week.

  • Michael Angelo Pagara

    @razbernardino:disqus nakausap ko ung CSR kagabi kasi bumagal ung internet ko (dahil sa 20GB limit) kunwari hindi ko alam at nagtanong ako kung bakit bumagal sabi nila dahil naubos ko na ung 20GB then sinabi ko na nakita ko sa website nila na ang LTE 2mbps ay 5GB PER DAY ung data allowance at nag-agree naman ung CSR. Kaya nagoffer siya na i-upgrade ko ung plan ko without additional fee sa monthly bill. 2 options ung pinapili nya saki. 1st ung 5GB per day but still 2mbps o 2nd 5mbps with 50GB monthly data allowance. Syempre ung 5GB perday ung pinili ko dahil kahit 2mbps ung speed samin mabilis parin.

    Checheck muna nila sa pinakamalapit na cell site (I’m not sure kung anong tawag dito) sa amin kung available ung 5GB perday (!?) within 24 hours ung process…. magwait ako til 7PM ng tawag mula sa kanila… Hoping 😉

    • Raz

      Hi Michael, yung 2mbps 5GB per day plan ay yung ni-review sa article na ito, which is a 2014 plan. Supposedly, this should not be offered again kasi phinased out na nila ito last year. nakakapagtaka tuloy bakit ganun ang sinabi ng CSR sayo. May comeback ang old plans to give consumers a choice? haha. Di pa ko nakatawag or chat sa globe, maybe sa weekend nalang.

      • Michael Angelo Pagara

        Ouch wrong info ung sinabi sakin. ;( sad

        • Raz

          Hi Michael. Any update? Totoo nga ba na offered ulit yung old plans?

          • Michael Angelo Pagara

            @razbernardino:disqus, sorry mukang wrong info ung binigay sakin nungkausap kong CSR… tumawag kasi ako ulit about sa result nung request ko. So ganun nga wrong info at nalungkot ako. Naubos ko na ung 20GB ko in just 2 weeks. Ouch! And the connection is very disappointing.

  • Stephanie Sartin

    hi Po, ano po ba ang mas better? LTE plan 1299 or DSL plan 1299. Thank you po

    • Raz

      if available po ang DSL sa inyo, go for it, mas stable at reliable siyempre ang nakacable. If you want same upload/download speed, go for LTE, basta ok din signal ng globe sa inyo. sa DSL kasi, mas mababa ang upload speed.

      • Isabella Summer

        Kapag po ba mas mababa ang upload speed anong mangyayare?

  • Yam Mashori

    hi again RAZ, ask ko lang anu po internet plan nyo sa globe?

    • Raz

      Hello yam! We’re still on the 2014 Plan 1099 (2mbps, 5GB per day) as reviewed on this article.

      • kit kat

        gud pm sir.. ask ko lng po kng available pb ung plan 1099(5gb/day)?. or kng plan 1299 (3mbps) nman ang kukunin ko, kng halimbawang ma reach ko na ung cap. ano po ung exact na mgiging internet speed,usable pa din ba siya kung sakali?….pasensya na sa noob questions 🙂 🙂 ty po in advance 🙂

        • Raz

          Hi Kitkat, 30% of the subsrcibed speed after reaching the cap. That’s 5mbps x 0.3, or 3mbps x 0.3.

  • Yam Mashori

    pinaka cancel ko yung application ko na 1299 in the hope that they would announce the new rubicon plan soon… Mabilis naman po ba globe sa inyo?

    • Isabella Summer

      Aww for dsl lang po yung 1299 sa rubicon.

      • Sky Bilog

        panget n globe ngaun kz may limiter n,,dito samin 15mbps lagi nmn disconnect

        • Isabella Summer

          Talaga? May problema daw kasi yung cabinets nila inaayos pa kaya nakahold lahat ng pagoffer sa rubicon

  • Isabella Summer

    Mag i know what do you think is better the new rubicon or the dsl plan? I am currently enrolled with 1599 lte plan and planning to change or switch to dsl plan. What can you advice?

  • Isabella Summer

    Clarify ko lang po yung PLAN 1299 and 1599 sa RUBICON is for DSL LANG siya AVAILABLE. I just called globe earlier and inooffer na nila yung plan for loyal customers (sa matatagal ng customers) nila. PLAN 699 and 999 is AVAILABLE for DSL/ LTE naman.

    • Raz

      Hi, Thanks Isabella! I clarified this too myself at naiupdate ko na ang article. Hopefully, maiba ang ihip ng hangin pag na announce na talaga ito. Salamat.

      • Isabella Summer

        Thanks for replying sir. But as of the moment globe stop offering the rubicon plan may problema kasi sa mga cabinets nila di kinakaya yung speed na 15 and 10 mbps. Thats why tinigil muna nila yung pag offer kahit sa mga loyalty customers nila.

        • Raz

          Maybe selected areas lang ito, some old customers are still being able to upgrade since last week.

          Globe is not yet ready to fully implement it nga siguro talaga, same as the LTE, hindi kaya na iprovide yung bandwidth sa dami ng customers, kaya siguro preliminary na up to 5mbps muna ang nasa draft plan. Well, this is just my guess.

          • Isabella Summer

            Yes selected area plang pwede but since may mga kota kasi yung nga agents inooffer pa din nila kahit na alam nila na di kakayanin. Basta mareach lang nila yung kota nila offer lang ng offer. And some areas talaga di nakakakuha ng exact mbps na inooffer nila. Baka trial run palang. Kasi sa sobrang dami ng customers nila halos lahat gusto ng rubicon plan.

  • nobodi

    ilan data cap ng plan 1299 lte?

    • Isabella Summer

      30

  • nobodi

    sinu may plan 1299 lte any concern naman about gaming sulit ba siya

  • jeh

    ano po ung mgging speed ng 1599 plan 5gb LTE if ma reach nya na ung data allocation? thx!

    • Raz

      Hi Jeh, 1.5mbps.

      5mbps x 30% = 1.5mbps.

      • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

        5mbps ang speed less 30% pag naabot ung data allocation… so kung d ako nagkakamali 5 mbps x 30% =1.5mbps…. so ang speed nlng is 5mpbs – 1.5mbps = 3.5 mbps nlng… tama ba?

      • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

        5mbps ang speed less 30% pag naabot ung data allocation… so kung d ako nagkakamali 5 mbps x 30% =1.5mbps…. so ang speed nlng is 5 mbps – 1.5 mbps = 3.5 mbps nlng… tama ba?

        • Raz

          No Steve, 1.5mbps ang magiging speed once na hit mo ang allocation mo.

          Speed will go down to 30% of the subscribed plan. 5mbps x 30% = 1.5mbps.

          • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

            Akala ko kc mababawasan lng ng 30% ung original speed pag naabot ung limit… buti nalinaw mu. Tnx po…

          • Raz

            You’re welcome po! 🙂

          • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

            Mali pala pagkaintindi ko sa cnabi ng agent na “Babagal po ng 30% pero makakakonek pa rin po kayo”. Akala ko mababawasan lng ng 30% ung original speed. Hehehe

  • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

    Ilan ang pwde magconnect sa wifi ng plan 1099? Tnx magpapakabit na kc kami dis month.

    • Raz

      up to 15 devices for the supplied modem, but ideal only for 2-3 persons.

  • Renan Gonzales

    hi Raz, LTE 1299 subscriber po ako, naubos na po nayon lang ang 30GB, ma-chacharge ba sa akin ang existing data na magagamit ko?

    • Raz

      No Renan, speed will just get lower,

    • Donald Gonzales

      hello renan, ask ko lang nagagamit mo pa ba yung lte mo after ng 30 gb gaanu kababa na lang yung speed?
      pwede pa ba youtube?

      • Renan Gonzales

        hi donald, kapag nauubos na ang 30GB, 11PM hanggang 5AM lang medyo mabilis ang internet at loading sa YouTube(1.23Mbps), kinaumagahan mabagal na ulit ang internet.

  • Donald Gonzales

    Hi Raz, same question as Renan Gonzales I just recently applied for LTE 1299 installed last sunday may 29, 2016 sabi nila sa globe center magnolia branch after i used up the 30 gb data allowance i will be charged 2 pesos per mb but locked not to exceed 5,000 pesos totoo ba ito? kasi sabi naman sa hotline nung nag verify ako wala daw charges babagal lang until the next month nalilito ako anu po ba ang tama? pls help thanks.

    • Raz

      No charge, 2 pesos per MB is only applicable for Go Surf with Anti Bill Shock Plan.

  • Donald Gonzales

    If totoo yung 2pesos per mb na extra after 30 gb data allowance is used up then 1 gb is equals to 2,000 pesos mas mahal pa sa 1299 monthly ko which is really stupid and greedy on globes part

    • Raz

      Hi again Donald, please make time to clarify this through http://chat.globe.com.ph kasi wala namang ganoong policy sa Globe Home Broadband. thank you.

      • Donald Gonzales

        maraminjg salamat raz

  • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

    Ung free HOOQ sa plan 1299 hindi ba kasama sa 30gb data allocation per month pag nagwatch ako ng movie dun?

    • Driz_12

      Kasama po

  • Maying

    Goodpm, magpapakabit sana ako ng dsl plan 1599. Sabi ng agent kaylangan ko daw mag bayad ng 1 month deposit?

    • Raz

      1 month advance po yun. Para di ka na magpakita ng proof of financial capacity. less requirements.

      • Maying

        Ok po sir. Another question sir, ok lang ba na sa globe agent lang ako nag apply? Hindi directly doon sa globe center?

        • Raz

          Yes po, pwede po iyon. Make sure na may OR ka for the 1 month payment na ibibgay mo sa agent. Just to make sure lang naman.

          • Maying

            Sino mag bibigay ng OR sir? diba doon ako mag babayad sa technician?

          • Raz

            Technican, kung sino po ang magkakabit ng modem niyo. OR or AR will be good enough.

  • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

    Kakainstall lng nila samin ng globe LTE home broadband plan 1299 with 3mbps sabi meron daw kami FREE 50gb data allowance for 3 months totoo ba un? Kau din ba meron?

    • Raz

      promo po nila yan for DSL subscribers. Nong inintro yung plan. wala sa LTE. If they say you still have the free 50GB data allowance, edi meron, swerte ka. hehe.

      • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

        Wala kc nabanggit ung agent na pinagaplayan ko… ung mga installer na ang nagsabi na meron daw kami FREE 50gb for 3 months… ang nakalimutan ko tanongin kung panu maavail ung free HOOQ ng plan 1299 namin… panu kaya un?

        • Veganistic

          the details will be sent to the email lister under the account. Just follow the procedures then you are good to go.

  • Joshua

    Feel ko bumilis yung pocket wifi namin at medyo consistent na yung speed (GoSurf 999) dahil cguro dun sa 700MHz. Pag gabe mga 5mpbs (speedtest) pag umaga naman kaya mag play ng 720p haha.
    (Disregard nyo na lang yung dati kong comment)

    • Raz

      Hi Joshua, I think this is nothing to do pa sa 700mhz frequency. Kasi ilang cellsites palang ang meron nun at dapat supported ng device mo ang 700mhz to utilize it. Maybe less lang ang users sa area mo during that days/time. 🙂

  • UnanimousPhil

    My Plan is 1099php up to 3mbps for 3 years now kasi December promo yata ako nka avail sa plan at ngayon lang talaga na implement yung 7gb daily cap nila without me knowing it. kasi once mag open ako nang browser galing sa work it will redirect to globe na naka consume nadaw nang 7gb and mag replenish by 12MN. bago ba ito? sabi nun unlimited and yes it was.

    • Raz

      Hi, actually this isn’t new. It was implemented for 2014 plans. While 2015 plans (still the current official offerings) are more strict that plans now have monthly allocation/limit. In your case, dapat nagabiso sila tungkol dun or else nagshift to the 2014 plan when you probably renewed your contract.

      • UnanimousPhil

        Thank you sa reply Raz, kaya nga tumawag ako sa kanilang customer service tungkol dito,. sabi nila yan ang bago and bakit hindi man lang sila nag send nang e-mail tungkol nito. hay nako,. any suggestion raz kasi ok lang ako sa 10gb daily. kulang yung 7gb eh.

        • Raz

          You are running out of options unlesskung gusto mo mag upgrade to the new rubicon plans as stated above.

          • UnanimousPhil

            maybe will just stick to my current plan,. thank you Raz

  • jampog

    hey raz!
    Nice article and since your replying in the comments it makes the site even better!! keep it up.

    We are planning to get the globe home lte plan. In case we move, is there a fee for moving? Also you mentioned there might be better plans coming, do you have an eta for them 😀

    Also regarding torrents, do they trottle them and if you downloading a 1gig file in torrents will it only consume 1 gig as well?

    • Raz

      Thank you jampog! 🙂

      I’m sorry but I do not have any info about changing of installation address. Regarding the new plans, there is no ETA as of now. Globe has been so much inconsistent about the dates, telling subscribers that plans will be annoucned by May 1st then June 1st. But until now, still no announcement.

      Same rule applies for torrents, it will be counted against your monthly allocation. And if you left that file seeding, bandwidth consumed doing that will also be counted. Personally, I am not into torrents but when I tried it, i did not experience any throttling on a normal day.

      • jampog

        Nice point regarding seeding! Didn’t cross my mind. Glad I asked here :))

        Time to try IDM i guess

        Thanks raz!

  • Neil Michael Namoro

    guys! i just applied for the plan 1599 online. pero dahil 5mbps lang ung nandun sa site nila, yun ang pinili ko. nakausap ko na kanina yung sa sales nila, na-process na yung application, sa friday daw mag-install. tinanong ko about project rubicon plans, pero ang sagot sa akin eh ndi raw sa kanila yun. sabi ko eh ung kaibigan ko naka plan 1599 pero 15mbps ung bandwidth, pero sa site nila 5mbps. wala daw syang idea kung bakit ganun. hindi ko tuloy mapilit na ilagay ako sa 15mbps na plan. ano kaya magandang next step dito?

    • Raz

      Hi Neil! Unfortunately, Rubicon plans are only available for selected current/loyal customers. This is not available yet for new application.

      Ss LTE under rubicon plans, Plan 699 at 999 lang ang available. The rest ay for DSL only as stated on the above article.

      • i see.. well that sucks. i guess try ko magpa-upgrade to rubicon plans after a few months?

  • Jopet Cervantes

    Hi raz! una po ang ganda ng post nyo sir. very informative! 🙂

    Just have a question. kung mag papalagay ako ng globe broadband sa bahay namin kelangan pa po ba nya ng telephone line? or parang naka canopy style lng sya.

    planning to get yung broadband plan 1299 for 3mbs 🙂

    • Raz

      Thanks Jopet!

      Dalawa po yung home broadband option ng globe. ADSL (the one with wired landline) at LTE (yes, wireless, optional mimo antenna). Yung LTE, modem + wifi router din yun na may paglagyan ng sim. So kung malakas naman ang signal sa loob ng bahay, no need na ng antenna.

  • albert

    Sir tanong ko lang yung bill number 1 namin is from may 18 to may 26. Pero ganito agad bill namin? Then nagtataka lang ako bakit nakalagay agad sa mrf yung bill from may 27 tp june 26 na supposedly dapat next bill pa sya? Sir pahelp naman di ko maintindihan eh.

    • Raz

      Kasi advance payment ito, nag1 month advance ka po? Then naipit ito sa cutoff date mo (I dunno why, pero yung amin saktong 1month) so nagadjust o prorated amount nalang yung babayaran mo na due sa june 16, then after that, your 2nd bill will be normal at around P1,600.

      Kumbaga, nagcompensate lang dito si globe since early billing ang nangyari sayo (less than 1 month span).

      • albert

        Thanks po sa reply. Opo nag 1 month advance po ako then kinaltas na nila yun sa 1st bill. So ang binayaran ko ay 700+ nalang kasama yung bill sa home phone. June 16 po yung due date pero june 19 na ako nakapag bayad. Then tanong ko lang po 5 days po ba bago magreflect na ok na yung paid bills mo? Kasi may text na naman ang globe about sa bill, 2500 php sya, nakakagulat po yung sobramg laki ng bill. Di ko alam if 2500 dahil di pa naclear yung binayad ko kasi 5 days pa bago magreflect or 2500 As in talaga sya? parang gusto ko na nga po magpaputol na agad kasi sobrang laki ng bill parang di na tama

        • Raz

          Depende po kung saan o anong mode of payment niyo.. Pag hindi diretso sa globe (bayad center, etc.) It may take days before it will be posted considering late payment din kayo. Depende din ito sa cutoff nung pinagbayaran niyo. Makikita naman po jan sa bill kung hindi pa nga nailess yung bill niyo noong may 18- 26. To make things clearer po sa inyo, pwede po kayo tumawag sa hotline or chat sa http://chat.globe.com.ph. maiiexplain nila sainyo yang bill ninyo at maitatama kung may mali.

  • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

    Kumuha kami ng globe homebroadband LTE plan 1299 with 3mbps mga magkanu kaya 1st bill namin?

    • Raz

      1299 + 333~ + 200 = around P1800+ po until the 3rd month ganito.

  • joni rose melodias

    hi po! plano sana namin to get this plan 699.. mgkano kaya mga 1st bill namin?

  • Driz_12

    Hi Raz! Kung matatan mo ako yung nagcomment dito last 2 months. Gusto ko lang sanang ishare. Nakacapped na kasi ako nung June 4. So ang speed ko na lang is 600Kbps (Plan 1099, 2Mbps). Then last Tuesday paguwi ko sa bahay kinonect ko phone ko. I started watching YouTube video then napansin ko “Bakit ang linaw, Di ba dapat low quality dahil nacapped na ko?” Nagtry ako ng speedtest after that. Then results showed that my speed is 15Mbps 😱. Hindi lang ngayon nangyari ito sakin. I already experienced this few months ago nung March 28 at April 12. Let’s skip to the present day. From June 15-June 21, 15Mbps yung speed ng network namin kahit nakacapped na. Sayang naman ang sabi ko sa sarili ko. Kaya nagdownload ako ng nagdowload hanggang sa umaabot sa 300GB usage ko. Nung paguwi ko nung Monday sa bahay nakita ko yung modem. Naka ilaw yung Red which means disconnected sa network. Wala akong choice kundi bunutin yung router. Pag-on, Wala na yung speed na mabilis and naging 150Kbps na lang speed ko -,-

    *Note: Nung maranasan ko yung mabilis na speed na yun few months back. Accidentally kong nabunot yung router pag-on ko, Back to capped speed. Kaya kung na-experience mo ito. Don’t unplug your modem.

    • Raz

      This is a bug in the system Driz. Naexperience ko rin yan multiple times pero hindi siya tumatagal ng longer than 1 day sakin since nadidisconnect agad (nagrered yung status gaya ng sabi mo). As I had noticed, this also started when the trial for rubicon started. At hanggang ngayon, meron pa rin pala. Didn’t experience it for a few weeks already.

      • Driz_12

        Yes, I think so. Nagexperience ko rin ito nung nagsimula silang matrial ng Rubicon project. Sakin naman for the first time gaya ng sabi ko 1 week kong na-experience ngayon di ko na magamit internet ko. 150Kbps yung speed. Nilipat ko yung sim ng internet ko sa Pocket WiFi ng Globe and it seems its working. Bumilis uli yung speed.

        • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

          Pwede b ilipat ung sim ng router sa pocket wifi? Wala ba magiging problema pag binalik ulit sa router ung sim? Bka mabago kc settings at d na makaconnect… Usefull ito kung halimbawa walang kuryente ilipat lng sa pocket wifi ung sim sa router at may powerbank may net na ulit. Naisip ko narn kc na ilipat kaso nagaalangan ako baka pag nilipat ko mabago ung config. Nung router at d na ako makaconnect.. Ako naranasan ko narn ung ganyan 3mbps kami pero minsan pumapalo sa 15mbps…Pero hindi nmn nagtatagal ng isang araw… bumabalik din sa dating speed… mga 4x ko narn naranasan yan…

          • Raz

            Yes pwede po ilipat sa pocket wifi. At nope, walang mababago sa settings since nasa modem yung apn settings at wala sa sim. At, nakalock ang settings ng APN (atleast for my LTE modem unit, B593S-931) kaya impossible maiba ang settings.

  • Sum JJ

    Hi Raz, thank you for writing this Review. I’m planning to avail their LTE 5mbps, 1599 per month but I’m still skeptical about it. I’m doing online tutoring for 8 hours in a day, everyday. Do you think Globe’s LTE 5mbps plan is enough for my kind of job? The Globe Agent I was speaking with yesterday said that here in my area (Davao City) I can enjoy their fast and reliable internet speed with the LTE 5mbps plan. (Of course they would say that. LOL) Btw, i’m currently using bayandsl, which is also providing me slower speed.

    • Raz

      Hi Sum. Yes, I think it will be enough.

  • Anne

    If mag-avail po ako ng Plan 999 LTE 2mbps without landline. Sa tingin niyo po ba may additional fee pa rin yun sa 1st month ko? Or 999 babayaran ko sa 1st month po?

    • Raz

      May additional pa rin po.

  • Abby Letran

    Hello po, I recently sign for applying globe home broadband plan1299, as you said ndi exact na 1299 ung maging bill ko kc may landline din ksma at modem? Tama ba?

  • Jonell Mañalac

    Hi sir! Today I went to globe and i was planning to get the home broadband plan 1299, but after reading your article and comments below i was wondering if i should get may application canceled and wait for globe to announce its new plan? I am a new subscriber btw, and i am worrying na baka hindi ko kayanin yung 30gb a month haha. Thanks

    • Raz

      Hi Jonell, I suggest you just continue your broadband application and upgrade it few months after. That’s a better choice for now since there is still no indication when will the new plans be available for new subscribers.

      • Jonell Mañalac

        Hi Raz, I saw your article about globes’ new plan so I am currently subscribed to plan 1299 3mbps(old plan), i am wondering if I am eligible to upgrade for the new 1299 10mbps or downgrade to 1199 5mbps my subscription started last July 27, 2016 for the old plan.

  • Ricardo Abogado Ballesteros

    good day Raz,
    I am from Cauayan City, Isabela. I am not aware if LTE signal is already available in my area or if Globe LTE broadband plans are already available. I already have filled out an application form via online but to my surprise a cust rep. from globe replied that the service is not yet available here in my area. My question is… Is that even possible hence 3G connections is available here and really stable. Are those LTE plans are exclusively for those who have LTE network… Is there any alternative plans for me such as thanks hope to hear from you

    • Raz

      Hi Ricardo, unfortunately, WiMax has been phased out already. I suggest, GoSurf is your best choice if LTE is not yet available in your area.

      • Ricardo Abogado Ballesteros

        thanks much for the reply… I appreciate it much

  • April Danao

    Hi! Nag avail ako ng plan. Lte plan 1299 30 GB allowance. So far the speed was good. Naistall siya yesterday. Ang concern ko lang is today pumalo na agad ng 5.07gb ung usage ko. Youtube and facebook lang naman ako and nag dl ako 1 movie kanina 700mb at upload ng video ko sa facebook which is 4 minutes lang.. Minsan pinapatay ko pa ung modem just to make sure stop ang usage. Ako lang user since ako lang nakatira dito.. kindly explain nman po pano ko matitipid ung 30gb allowance ko. Thankyou!

    • Raz

      Malaki po talaga magconsume ang youtube lalo na kung naka HD ang settings mo. Kung pala youtube ka talaga at it wont hurt you to get a lower quality video, set your resolution/quality to 480p or 360p while watching. That way, watchable pa rin yung video at makakatipid ka sa bandwidth. Sa pagpatay naman ng modem, no need naman na kasi kung di ka gumagamit ng net e di rin madadagdagan yung naconsume mo, better na nakaon kung active ka sa social media so you’ll get your notifications/messages instantly. There’s no reason to turn off the modem if you are an active user. Unless, nagtitipid ka ng kuryente, minimal lang naman ang konsumo.

      • April Danao

        Ok Raz! Salamat! 🙂

    Hi nakaplan 1099 kami. Pero pag nagdownload ako ng mahigit 2gb humihina agad ang internet tapos bumibilis ulit sya kapag 1am na ng madaling araw. Last year naman ay hindi sya ganun. Nakakadownload pa ako last year mahigit 4-5gb. Ang problema lang dati ay humihina sya kapag gabi na. Pero ngayon kahit tanghali humihina na basta makapagdownload ka lang ng ganung kababang size -_-

    • Raz

      Hi Gian, medyo weird nga ito since naka old plan 1099 ka na supposedly 5GB/day ang limit. Better ask Globe why it is happening.

  • Ferben Africa

    Hi ask ko lang. An agent called me if I want an upgrade from my current plan of 999 to 1299 internet of 10mbps speed with 100 gb cap and landline kasi one of the loyal customers nga daw nila. Ask ko lang po what if I reach my cap na po of 100gb so mag throttle down po ng 30%ang speed ko so magiging 3mbps po sya? Tama po? Ask ko lang pag bumaba na sya sa 3mpbs may cap pa din po ba sya? And ok din po ba ang upgrade na ito? Fixed ba na 1299 unless i use the phone for other networks or ndd calls.

    • Raz

      Hi Ferben. Yes, you’re right po. There’s no further cap na from 30% after you hit the 100GB allocation.

  • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

    Cnu na d2 ung nagavail ng upgrade sa bagong braodband plan ng globe? Ung dating LTE homebroadband nila na 1299 with 3mbps at 30gb data allocation ngaun 10mbps na at 50gb na. Meron daw kc prorated charged pag magaavail/upgrade sa new broadband plan… Anu ba ung prorated? One time payment ba un? Malaki ba bayaran sa prorated? Example ung samin kakapakabit palang nung June 9 LTE Globe Homebroadband 1299 with 3mbps at 30gb data allocation. Upon installation nagbayad na kami ng 1499 (1299+200) advance at activation daw. 1st bill (June 11 to July 5) P1490.80 (1500 binigay namin sa bayad center para wala n barya2 kinicredit nmn nila sa next bill namin) 2nd bill (July 6 to August 5) P1823.13 di pa kami nagbabayad kc sa august 26 pa nmn ang due date. Panu na magaaply ung Prorated charged na cnasabi nila para sa 3rd bill namin? One time payment ba un? At sa 3rd bill naba idadagdag? Panu computation nung prorated?

    • Raz

      I am afraid to say na baka di pa po kayo qualified to upgrade to the new plans since bagong kabit pa lang yung linya niyo. pag prorated po, parang portion by portion po, installment ganun. I believe this prorated e yung discount na ibinibgay sa mga nagupgrade before to a higher plan for the first six months of the contract (during beta ng new plans). I am not knowledgeable about it kasi nagupgrade kami last June, walang prorated amount kasi considered as downgrade yung samin (from Plan 1099 to 999 na lang). Mas maganda po iinquire niyo nalang directly sa globe if eligible na kayo for the upgrade.

      • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

        Ok na po. Pwede daw magupgrade sa new LTE homebroadband 1299 at no charged daw… 5 working days daw hihintayin ko bago mamigrate ung account ko sa new plan.

        • Raz

          Good to hear that Mark! 🙂 enjoy higher speed soon. 😀

          • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

            Naupgrade na ung net namin sa 10mbps kahapon… Mabilis na. Naginternet speed test ako kanina at un more than 10mbps pa ung result.

          • Raz

            Ilan po volume allocation niyo per month? 50GB?

          • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

            50gb po…. Kc LTE samin. Ung DSL ata na plan 1299 nasa 100gb data allocation nila.

  • John

    Hello! Im an existing globe tattoo LTE broadband subscriber. Do you have any idea on how to upgrade on the new rubicon plans for lte? by the way, thank you for the info that you posted on this page, it makes me decide to apply for an upgrade and i hope it’s still available right now..

    • Raz

      Hello John, I had updated the article yesterday to reflect the newly launched plans of Globe Broadband. Way back last month, I requested the upgrade to rubicon using http://chat.globe.com.ph. I told the CSR that I wanted to upgrade to my chosen plan (Plan 999 5mbps 50GB LTE). Then, she processed the upgrade promptly. But now that the new plans are already official, I am not sure if you can still able to upgrade to the Rubicon plans offered to existing subscribers before.

      • John

        Hello Raz, sad to say that rubicon plan is not available for me. But I requested an upgrade na lang for my 2mbps plan to plan 1299 with 10mbps with 50gb monthly capping. I have a question, kailan ko po ito mararamdaman? I apply for an upgrade 11 days ago but it seems that I didn’t receive any reply from globe. I called to their hotline an they said kokontakin nila ako but wala akong nareceive na reply. Maaaprobahan pa ba yun? Thank you.. 🙂

        • Raz

          Kindly follow up your request John. Usually within 5 days is maaactivate na ang new plan if it is already processed. I suggest, use http://chat.globe.com.ph to followup.

          • John

            Thank you. Hahaha. I already had the response from globe. They said that Plan 1299 is not available in my area.. 🙁

          • John

            Maybe i will just stick na lang to my existing plan.. HAha

  • nelson

    sir tanong ko lang . nag avail po ako ng plan 1299. tapos nung 1st bill namin 500 lang yung napabayadan ko. tapos ngayon naman 177.24pesos yung total amount due. at bakit po 0 yung total amount sa MRF .pa help naman po sir. bakit ganyan yung sa billing statement ko sir. nakakapag net naman kami ng ayos. na curious na kasi ako bakit ang baba ng binabayad ko.

    • Raz

      Hi Nelson, separate billing statements po ang internet at yung homephone bundle. So dapat dalawang bill ang marrcv mo, it depends when na activate yung postpaid line (homephone) at yung internet mo. Pwedeng magkaibang day ang statement date nila.

  • jammer

    Hi Raz, im planning to get the Plan 1299. Is it transportable from home in Pasig to work in Antipolo? Im a bit concern of LTE signal in Antipolo. Do i need to install an antenna on the roof for these unit?

    • Raz

      Hi! They usually install an antenna even if your area already had a good signal reception. Sa amin, we had the antenna, but we don’t bother if it is in use or not kasi ok din naman ang signal sa loob ng bahay.

      Regarding your other concern, it is advisable that the modem will stay only in the area where it has been installed. You may try to do that but Globe is not responsible if you get slower speeds or no signal at all. In some areas, they implement a cell lock thing that you can only connect to a specific tower where your modem/account is assigned.

      • Samantha

        In regards to this topic, if you transfer to a different location..can we request for out existing modem from the old location to be reinstalled or connect to another tower. am i going to call globe for that or ill gonna apply for a another installation?

  • Renan Gonzales

    Hi Raz, akala ko po ba para lang sa mga loyal customer ang pag pa-upgrade, bakit kami? kahit 3 buwan palang ang Plan namin, nang tumawag ako at itinanong ko kung pwedeng ipa-upgrade pumayag naman sila i-upgrade ang Plan namin from 3Mbps to 10Mbps 1299 LTE.

    • Raz

      Hi Renan! Officially released na po ang plans as updated sa article. So everyone can already avail, not only exisiting/loyal subscribers. If you availed before August 20, then good for you. I’ve also told others here nung before marelease ang plan, pwede muna sila magapply for the current offered plans then magupgrade nalang months after.

    • ezreal gooom

      Renan Old Promo padin ako ng 1299 LTe may bayad ba yung sayo pag Call mo para sa upgrade?

      • Renan Gonzales

        wala pong bayad

        • ezreal gooom

          I mean Upgrade Fee po para maging 10mbps yung speed??

          • Renan Gonzales

            Opo Free po ang pagpa-upgrade nang tumawag ako sa 211
            saan ka po ba tumawag sa 211 or Globe Landline Customer Care?

        • ezreal gooom

  • Ian Esparagoza

    Hi raz. Baket po yung plan 1599 bundle plan namen binabayaran namen lage 2.5k + ngayon 3k na morethan 9 months na kame nag babayad ng ganyan kalalaki. May bayad po ba pag nag exceed ka sa 50gb allocation? Di na po namen ginagamet yung line na binigay

    • Raz

      Hi Ian, please inspect your monthly statement kung ano yung nagiincur ng additonal charges.

      • Ian Esparagoza

        50 gb padin ba cap ng 1599? Or nahincrease na sila?

        • Raz

          Kung ano po yung cap ng plan niyo na inapplyan niyo before, yun pa rin po. Hindi po ma-auauto migrate sa bagong plan unless magrequest kayo ng upgrade/shift.

          • Ian Esparagoza

            Magkano po ba mag paadd ng adtional 20 gig kada buwan?

          • Raz

            Hi Ian, for the new plans, 5GB is P149, while 30GB costs P299.

        • Kaje

          Yes 50 gigs sa LTE.

  • Owen Kempis

    HI Raz.
    May tanung po ako.
    Sa 1299 10mbps 100gb.
    What if po kapag naubos yung data na 100gb. Babagal lng po ba? At gaano nmn po kabagal?.
    And pede oo pa explain.
    Ung 50gb lte at 100gb dsl.
    Anu po ba pinag ka iba nila?

    • Raz

      Hi Owen, 10mbps x 30% = 3mbps. LTE is wireless po, while DSL is the regular wired internet service.

    • Kaje

      And subtract another 70 percent from your throttled down speed if you reach the limit twice in a month. That happened to me.

  • Livann Fleur Love

    Hi Raz, I want to know kung may restricted access ba after ma consume yung 150gb for plan 1599. For example, may sites ba na di maaacces or di makaka online games etc.. Thanks 🙂

  • Livann Fleur Love

    Hi Raz, pagka consume ba n
    Ang allocated na gb per month sa dsl plan 1599 (150gb), m
    Aside from the lower speed meron bang ibang restrictions like for example, you can’t access some sites na or play online games or use messaging services like skype etc.. Thanks 🙂

    • Raz

      Hi, wala pong restriction.

      • Livann Fleur Love

        Thank you 🙂

  • Dedrick Balanggao

    Hi Raz,

    Naka LTE ka ba? Have you tried using the sim card in your phone or pocket wifi? Does it work?

    Thanks,
    Don

    • Dedrick Balanggao

      By the way, I called the customer service. Ang sabi, the sim card will not work if used in cellphone or pocket wifi. And if taga QC ako, di raw makakasagap ng signal pag outside QC na ako. I don’t believe the CSR so if you can validate this, id really appreciate.

      • Kaje

        That proves na maraming empleyado yang Globe na walang alam! Oo pwede po. I always insert my sim to may tab pag blackout samin. Ngayon di na kasi ikinabit ko na sa 650va na ups ang modem ko so may internet ako kahit walang kuryente.

        • Dedrick Balanggao

          Hi Kaje,

          San ang area mo? Na try mo bang gamitin ung LTE outside of your area? Sabi rin kasi ng globe mawawalan daw ng signal pag outside your coverage area (e.g. if QC ka, di na siya gagana pag Caloocan since naka-tag daw sa system na pang QC lang ung sim).

          • Kaje

            Cebu City area po. Di ko pa na-try outside my area but since it connects to 3g when I insert my LTE sim to my tab then I guess it would work anywhere with 3g connection. I’m not sure though. I’ll try it in a few days pag nagtravel ako.

      • Kaje

        I tried it just now at pwede po.

    • Raz

      Hi Dedrick, I tried it before in my tablet and I got no signal. Anyway, my tablet is only capable up to H+. Not LTE.

    • Kaje

      Yes pwede po! Pambihira itong si Raz. I removed my sim from the modem and inserted to my Huawei tab and set my apn to postpaid. May 3g signal siya kahit up to 3g lang tab ko. It will take around 5 mins, connect at disconnect lang ang mobile data till the H icon appears on top. Pwede test mo muna ng mabuti Raz bago ka sumagot sagot sa mga tanong? By the way cebu city area po ako.

      • Raz

        Hi Kaje, Hindi po gumagana when i tried it. Area is in Tarlac.

        • Kaje

          Working in Cebu City area. I change the APN from postpaid to prepaid and vice versa every after 1 minute. It then connects to 3g in around 5 minutes.

  • Raffy david

    Raz ask ko lng simula ng kinabitan ako nung friday try ko tumawag sa globe with landline since ngayon sinasabi sa ringback nya “restricted” bkit gnun pano ko mttwagan ung globe

  • Raffy david

    Sbi may activation pa un within 3days .. E pang 3days na ngaun ?

    • Raz

      May welcome text po kayong mtatanggap once activated na siya. magkakasignal na rin nun at di na restricted service.

  • Theodore Soriano

    hi raz kaka avail ko lang po ng plan 1299 10 mbps so far po okay naman ung signal and pag nanunuod nman po ako youtube mabilis din po ang buffering pero po pag nag ddownload naman ako through torrent medyo mabagal siya usually 20-40 kbps lang ung speed mataas naman po ung seeders and mababa ung peers

    • Raz

      Hi Theodore, sorry di kasi ako gumagamit ng torrent kaya di kita matutulungan tungkol dito. Maybe other viewers can give you more info about this. You may try to use vpn tunnel also (if torrents seemed to be blocked)

  • Raymund

    Hi raz, pwede po pakiclarify yung statement na naka cross-out for the
    new plans. which is “However, there is a catch. Speeds will continue to
    go down by 30%
    depending on your usage. The usage here was not yet clear on how many
    GBs more will it take for the speed to be at 0.9mbps. So roughly
    speaking, speed will start at 10mbps then 3mbps, 0.9mbps until it
    reached the minimum of 256kbps as per mandated by NTC.”

    tinanggal na po ba to.. or implemented pa din sa new plans na bababa until 256 kbps?

    • Raz

      Hi Raymund, kindly read the paragraph after the crossed out statement. It should answer your concern. Thanks!

    • Kaje

      Raymund walang kwenta yang reply ni Raz. Pasagot-sagot pa eh wala namang alam. Oo progressive o pababa ng pababa ang speed ng connection mo. I subscribed to Globe Broadband 2016 plan 1599 LTE, 5 mbps/month at may monthly limit ng 50 gigabytes. July ako nagpaconnect at nung August umabot ako sa limit. 1.5 mbps (30 percent of my subscribed connection) nlng speed ko the whole August but it’s still fast for me. This September I reached my limit again but I consumed more than a hundred gigs or twice my limit – Globe throttled down my connection again to 0.22 mbps maximum. That’s too slow! HINDI SINABI NG MGA TAGA GLOBE SAKIN YAN NUNG NAGPAKABIT AKO. THEY SAID UNLIMITED NA PAG NA-THROTTLE DOWN AKO! WALA RIN SA HELP O SUPPORT O FAQS PAGE NILA YAN! Kanina ko lang naverify sa Globe office when SOMEONE NA, THANKFULLY, MAY ALAM ang nag-explain sakin. WALA RING MOBILE O EMAIL NOTIFICATION ANG GLOBE PAG NA-THROTTLE DOWN KA. NASA NTC RULES NAMAN SANA YAN.

      • Bandit

        Same experience here po. Ngayong week lang po buti nga nareset naman this October. From 5MBPS naging 1.6 MBPS nalang at ngayong week naging ).22MBPS. Napakauseless. Tinanong ko costumer service representative nila ininsist parin nila na 30% daw at wala daw sila magagawa sa internet namin. Kainis nga eh. Sinungaling na GLOBIBO.

        • Bandit

          Mbits yan*

        • Kaje

          You will be throttled down to 30% every time you reach the cap. I reached the 50gb cap twice kaya super slow na connection ko. 100+ gb kasi nagamit ko. Ang nakakainis ay sabi nila nung nag-inquire ako before nagpaconnect eh unlimited na daw pag nathrottled down na. They didn’t say the throttling down is progressive. Their website did not contain that info too. At wala mn lng message na throttled ka na pala. For those who are using desktop or laptop I suggest you use bandwidth controlling softwares. I use NetBalancer to control my download and upload speed. If you don’t use bandwidth controllers then your computer will use the maximum download and upload speed. My mom is fond of skype and facebook video chat or yahoo chat with video streaming. She uses like 4+ gigs a night! I installed NetBalancer on her desktop to prevent my bandwidth from reaching the monthly data cap.

      • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

        Kaya pala naging 200+kbps nlng speed nung patapos n ung month kc naka 100+ GB na kami. Akala ko throlled lng sya once ng 30% un pla bumagsak na speed namin…. Yan nba bagong FUP nila? Wala man lang pasabi at notification… Tumawag din ako at sabi nila throlled lng kc naabot n namin ung limit at cnabi ko dapat 30% lng bat 200kbps nlng pero wala cla matinong sagot. Yan pala ang dahilan 2loy2 pla nila tinithrolled ung speed…. Bwesit na globe 2.

        • Bandit

          Oo nga wala silang matinong sagot

          • Mark Steve Camba Alcantara

            Lets hope nlng na system problem lng ung naxperience natn last month… Kc 1st time ko lng din maxpernce ung ganun kababang speed…

          • Kaje

            That’s why I’m pissed off. Nagbabayad tayo ng tama pero di tama info nila. Wala mn lng notification na throttled down na tayo.

        • Kaje

          NTC requires telecommunications companies na magpadala ng notification via sms or email when connection speed has been throttled pero di nila sinunod. We can file a complaint against globe in this matter.

      • Raz

        Hi Kaje, pare pareho lang po tayong subscribers ng Globe dito, parehong consumer. In my case, sinasabi ko lang po kung ano amg experience ko. Hindi ko po sinasabi na 100% accurate ang nakalagay sa blog na ito. Salamat.

      • 707

        Sa amin po once lang na reached ang data cap .24mbps nalang ang speed na nakukuha namin. Is this normal? 5mbps naman din po plan namin.

        • Kaje

          .24 mbps na lang din speed ko once i reached the cap this month of october. Pag di bumalik to I’ll file a complaint and have my plan disconnected.

    • Raz

      Hi Raymund, info po about dito is still vauge, walang official announcment or FAQ from Globe, even CSRs ay iba iba ang sagot, pero may mga ibang users na nga po, like Kaje, na nakaexperience na ng throttling.

  • Eric Cister

    kakaavail ko lang ng plan 1599 waiting for installation, it means ba first 3months ko ay 1,699+500 din? and sa 4th-6th month ay 1800?….. upon installation need mag advance payment ng 1,599 sa installer tama po ba?… di ko rin kasi natanong kung ilan ang lock-in period ng plan 1599.. 2yrs ba? thank you

    • Raz

      Hi Eric, around 500+ ang additional for the first 3 months (amortization for installation fee/landline). Pero if waived ang installation fee niyo, landline nalang. And 300+ for the 4th-6th month. Pwede po kayo magadvance payment ng one month MSF para di na kayo magprovide ng proof of income pero since for installation na, nagopt na siguro kayo na advance payment nalang. 2 years ang standard contract sa globe.

  • Gasai Yuno

    hello po. tanong ko lang sana if mag reach kana ng cap. kailan po to ma rerefresh? pag magbabayad na po ba?

    • Raz

      Every 1st day of the month po.

  • John

    Hello Raz! I have a question, what if your superhome phone handset got damaged? Can I contact globe to claim the warrany of the phone? thank you!

    • Raz

      Hi John! Yes, you may. It comes with a standard warranty like other phones.

  • Johnmar Lomboy Reyes

    hello po..nasa old plan palang po ako which is 1299 3mbps. question. can i upgrade it to 10mbps which is the new plan ..may bayad po ba ito pag mag request ako for upgrade?

    • Raz

      Hi Johnmar! Wala pong bayad if you will retain the same plan MSF.

  • ezreal gooom

    Hello Po Currently Po Globe plan 1299 LTE ako 3mbps. now ko lang nalaman na 10mbps na pla new promo nila What Number po pwd ko tawagan to Upgrade my current subscription?? Thanks

    • Raz

      Hi! Pwede po kayo tumawag sa (02) 730-1010 o bumista nalang sa Globe store. Pero before upgrade, baka gusto niyo basahin muna ang usapan about sa speeds dito sa thread na to.

      • ezreal gooom

        Thanks na upgrade na nila,.as of now happy naman ako kasi 12 to 15mbps speed dito sa area namen,. kung lumagpas man ako sa 50gb Limit 3-5mbps is not bad

        • Raz

          Hi Ezreal! I hope active ang disqus notifications mo. Tanong ko lang kung nakakaexperience ka rin ba ng severe throttling after using up 50GB (or 100GB) lately? Salamat!

  • Anne

    Bakit nung nag inquire ako sa globe for plan 1099 ang sabi sakin 1300 per month (good gor 4 months) lang ang babayaran yet nung first billing umabot ng 1600+ something yung bill. They never discussed na 500+ ang additional and the 2 years contract. Nakakadisappoint lang na ang mahal ng bayaran yet tipid nman sa monthly data. Globe pakiayos nman po ng services nyo when it comes sa pag inquire. Thank you

    • Raz

      Hi Anne! kindly read the section about billing statements on this article. Andun po ang kasagutan based on my experience. Thank you.

  • Dee-Jay Apostol

    Hi, ask lang po if maubos ba yung data allowance yung sosobra ba na data na magagamit ko ay magcha-charge po ba at madadagdag sa montly payment ko or free na yun pero babagal yung internet speed.?

      Hi Dee-Jay! Hindi po, babagal lang.

      • Dee-Jay Apostol

        Nag exceed na kasi ng 15gig yung data allowance ko pero still the same pa din nman yung speed but thanks btw for the info

    • Raz

      Hi McFarmer, yes po, you can. Inquire nalang po kayo sa globe store or agent for the upgrade.

      • jess

        Good day! Ask ko lang po kpg mag upgrade ako sa 10mbps meron ba additional charge sa next bill q? 1299 3mbps ang plan ko po now. Ilan po madadagdag na data if ever upgrade na plan ko. Thank you in advance sa reply!

      • McFarmer

        Ty sir..

  • Kristine

    Hello po. I just want to ask regarding dun sa na exceeding gb allocation per month. Paano po kung nakabayad na kami pero na exceed na namin ang gb allocation per month, kailangan siya marerest?

    • John

      Hello! The speed and the monthly cap will refresh every 1st day of the month. 😉

  • Kaje

    I’ve got nad news. I am subscribed to plan 1599 LTE 50GB monthly limit. This month I’ve used up 57 gigs but my speed is a disappointing 0.09 to 0.24 mbps. From July to August I used up more than 50gb a month and my speed was 1.5 to 1.9 mbps. On September I’ve used up more than 100gb, I broke the limit twice and my speed slowed down to 0.20 mbps. This month once ko lang na-exceed ang limit eh 0.09 to 0.24 mbps na agad. Sobrang dismayado ako. I called customer service and usual sabi lng nila interrupted internet ko at lagpas na sa cap. Alam ko naman yun. What is happening? Why is my speed too slow when I’ve used up 7 gb beyond my 50gb limit??? If this won’t get fixed in 24 hours I will contact NTC. What happened to minus 70% when one exceeds the limit (speed will be only be 30% of the original subscribed speed)??? I might consider having my connection disconnected.

    • Mario Walter

      1299 10mbps 50gb alaminos laguna

      same here kaje. its been 3 months that when i used up my data allocation, the speed drastically goes down to 20kbps. and sometimes times the speed goes so low that speedtest could only return an error message! i called globe about it and had spoken to 2 agents. one says 64kbps na lang daw ang speed pag naubos na ang allocated data and the other one says 30kbps… bakit ganun?!! i told them that the plan was sold to me with a promise that the speed after exceeding plan data will reduce to 30% (dapat 3mbps) but it does not.. sobrang bagal– its depressing and sad.

      napamura nga ako dun sa agent na nakausap ko after telling me 30mbps na lang ang speed ko..

      i upgraded my plan from plan999 2mbps to plan1299 10mbps because i thought that the reduction of speed to 3mbps after exceeding data is still manageable and good. applicable pa ba ang reduction to 30% speed after you exceed your data allocation?

        Let’s call NTC and let them know that globe is fucking us up.

    Hi, good day po. Ask ko lang po, naka-subscribe kasi ako sa 1299 10mbps 50gb pero nag-exceed na ko sa cosumable data ko, nasa around 70gb na ang nagagamit ko, ask ko lang if magkakaron ba yun ng charge sa bill ko? Your reply will be a big help.
    Thank you.

    • Raz

      Hi! Hindi po kayo machacharge ng additional, you’ll just experience slower speed.

      • Gerlie Prieto

        Oh okay, salamat po. 🙂

  • Renan Gonzales

    buti pa ako kahit 270GB na usage ko hindi nagbago ang speed 10Mbps parin, Raz bakit po ganito? hindi na bumabagal ang speed magmula nung magpa upgrade kami.

    • Raz

      Hi Renan, swerte ka kasi di ka nathrothrottle. Pwede po ba malaman ang area niyo?

      • Renan Gonzales

        Sorsogon po

        • jesse

          hi renan. taga sorsogon din po ako sa Matnog po. ito po ung nang yari sakin ung 10mbps ko po naging 0.20 nlng ano po ba pwede kong gawin? salamat po.

          • Driz_12

            Hindi lang po sa inyo nangyayari ang mabagal na speed. Lahat po ng mga users nakakaranas nito. Ibig sabihin mo ay umaabot na kayo sa Monthly limit ng plan ninyo. Babalik po ang dati ninyong speed sa 1st day ng susunod na buwan.

    • Driz_12

      Same here. Hindi naman bumabagal yung speed ko kahit na lagpas na sa dapat data usage ng plan ko.

    • HAHAHA same here

  • Driz_12

    Naala mo pa ba ako @Raz? haha. Ako yung nagcomment dito few months ago.

    UPDATE: Currently enjoying my Internet. Nagpa-upgrade kami the day na nilabas ng Globe yung Rubicon plans nila. So far, No complains. Mabilis yung Internet. Parang wala ring cap yung Internet. Last September naka 300GB ako from my 50 limit. Di ko naranasan na bumagal yung speed ko. Same as with October, 100GB+ pero wala ring slowdown. Yung Upload speed lang talaga yung mabagal. Nasa around 1.5Mbps lang.

    • Raz

      Hi Driz! Nice to hear from you again! Kung tama ang pagkaalala ko, isa ka sa commenter na nakaranas ng 15mbps speed kahit di yun ang plan mo during rubicon test. Haha. Buti ka pa, di nakakacap, yung ibang users e sobra ang pagkacap sakanila. May i know kung ano area mo? LTE ka din, tama? Thanks!

      May new discussion thread na tayo sa https://www.spideylab.com/internet-and-blogging/globe-home-broadband-plans-2016/ makikita mo diyan yung mga latest concerns ng Plan 2016 users.

      • Driz_12

        Lubao, Pampanga. Yes. LTE user ako. Since nung nagpa-upgrade kami hindi man bumagal yung speed namin. Consistent pa rin na 10Mbps.

        • Raz

          Thanks Driz! It seems like yung mga nasa provincial/less populated areas e hindi affected ng throttling.

        • Renz

          Driz, saan ka sa lubao? plano ko mag pa install sa amin malakas kaya signal ng LTE sa San Pablo 2nd

          • Driz_12

            Try niyo pong mag-inquire sa pinakamalapit na Globe Shop. Hindi na po kayo lalagyan ng Globe kapag ka puno na yung tower o kapag po marami ng naka-connect sa tower hanggang 3Mbps na lang po yung maibibigay sa inyo.

          • Jed Pinoy

            Driz, pwede malaman kung saan ka banda sa Lubao? o saan tower ng globe naka point antenna mo? tnx

  • Kirk Moses Ramos

    sir raz, is it usual na hindi kasama ung antenna nung pag install? ksi nkta ko sa form may “1” ung antenna so i assume na dapat merong antenna na binigay.

    • Raz

      Hi Kirk, usually po automatic na may antenna once nag install ang technician. In our case, naginstall ng antenna even okay naman ang signal sa loob ng bahay.

    Hi guys i’m a 5mbps globe tattoo lte user 50gb per month i see that you guys are experiencing it as well, for three months now since September globe is not able to follow the 30% after exceeding immediately after consuming the monthly data allowance. the speed would go down immediately to 0.3 Mbps (Maximum) I’ve not experience this before September. 8 times naku tumawag sa customer service mga wala ring alam any advices guys para magkaruon ng immediate actions ito, Do I call the termination group and threaten that i disconnect or get a compensation and an immediate action.? what works for you guys. cause I’m sick of these guys kind of service. its borderline scamming/false advertising.

    • Kaje

      Pareho tayo. I got tired of calling their useless agents na walang alam. Umabot nalang sa refresh date eh walang improvememt ang speed ko na dapat sana ay 30 percent after I reached the limit. October nangyari sakin ang ganyan. If this month ganyan parin I’ll have my connection disconnected.

  • Kirk Moses Ramos

    may limit po ba sa isang araw? 25gb pa lng ncoconsume ko pro un 10mpbs naging .22mbps.

    • Raz

      Wala po Sir, monthly po ang capping ng new globe broadband plans.

  • Mac Uzial Aguas

    I dont want to be rude but team ayoko naman na lagi nalang akong tumatawag at nagpapasencya. I called on 11/19/2016 and requested for 60gb volume boost, i received my bill for the month and showed there na charged nako for what ive requested for. Pero ang masaklap ala parin til now. Tumawag nako yesterday 11/25/2016 sabi within 24 hrs, tumawag ako ulit today 11/26/2016 at sinabing di daw nag reflect so 2nd escalation na nila may 3rd and 4th paba and so on?… please naman guys do something about it.we’re paying and ayaw naman nameng magkaroon pa ng issue na gnyan. Sana yung process na pag add ng volume boost ay sing bilis ng pagcharged nyo sakin. Salamat

  • Elmer

    • Raz

      Hi Elmer, I am not using HOOQ myself. Pero yes, magcoconsume yun galing sa data allowance mo.
