Hi Renan, inalis na ng globe yung Go Fast plans. And they changed the rules for Go Big. Pwede na ang LTE sa GoBig 5mbps at 10mbps plan. While GoUnli is for wired connections lang.

Hi Brando, availability varies per area po. Better consult a Globe store sa location niyo if pwede kayo magavail ng plan na ito.

Hindi po, same lang din po babagal lang speed niyo. Saka lang po may additional kung mag-avail kayo ng volume boost.

Hi gbneko, I am sorry as this reply is somewhat too late.
As I remember, Globe started to impose strict throttling way back September 2016, starting with LTE users. DSL followed shortly months after. There is no fix date when it is implemented for DSL because some users are complaining about it as early as September too, but others still enjoy the 30% speed after consuming their data allocation. I am not surprised that you started feeling the limit only now, because Globe implemented it gradually among its customers. You are lucky to be on the bottom portion of the list.
Regarding if Globe really can do this, unfortunately yes, because they can change their own Fair Usage Policy anytime, it is within the terms of the service we signed up for. And with 256kbps, they are still following the minimum speed currently mandated by NTC. So, we can’t really do anything about it it but to complain. NTC needs to revise their rules, ASAP. There is an on-going talk about further increasing the minimum broadband speed few months earlier but I haven’t heard any development about it.

Hi Edron, sorry po too late na ang reply ko.
I can’t advise without knowing kung paano ang internet usage niyo. Plan 1299 (GoBig) will do well sa regular home setup, provided na di kayo paladownload or stream ng movies, etc. Yung capping, malala ang impact niyan kapag nareach mo na yung limit, pero meron naman tayong volume add-ons. This is the way na maiwasan yung paglimit sa speed, kaso nga lang magdadagdag ka sa ibabayad mo.

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

Hi Jenny, yung 300GB po is for DSL only, but you may inquire if it is available in your location, they might offer it as LTE kung hindi congested ang area niyo (but this is unlikely).
We are using Globe LTE Home Broadband since 2015, no major issues regarding the signal whether maaraw o maulan. May times lang na nawawalan ng signal pero babalik din agad after a few seconds/minutes, Around 1km away lang kami sa nearest tower ng Globe.

pwedeng pwede naman Sir.
» Posted By Raz On July 26, 2017 @ 7:28 am
Yes Sir, pero ang drawback, di tayo makakasiguro kung bigla nalang maging for youtube only yung 100GB na additional. We can’t blame Globe then, if that happens. Kasi marketed as for Youtube lang siya.
» Posted By Raz On July 24, 2017 @ 10:08 am
It is marketed as 100GB for Youtube (promo for the first 6 months) + 50GB for regular data allocation. Pero recently, other users claim (those who availed this), na pwedeng gamitin yung 100GB kahit hindi sa youtube. meaning, counted as regular data allocation siya.
» Posted By Raz On July 24, 2017 @ 9:58 am
Yes John Paul. It is only a promo, stated din yan sa article na ito.

We’re on Plan 999 5mbps (Rubicon Beta Plan), LTE to. Still lucky to have it last year since Plan 1199 ang equivalent niya ngayon. Wala pa kasing fixed line sa area namin, kaya wireless lang ang choice.
We have free HOOQ access and Spotify bundled to the plan pero never namin ginamit or inactivate. One year na ngayon, di pa naman kami nacharge so far.
Yes, mas okay na nga yung Plan 1299 under GoBig ngayon compared last year, if decrease in speed will not matter sa usage niyo.

Hi geb0i, please contact globe regarding your subscription. Ipacancel mo nalang. Also ask for refund/credit to your bill lalo na kung never mo naman pala triny kahit yung free subscription. Regarding downgrade, you can ask for it even hindi pa tapos yung contract but it is subject to downgrade fee. We downgraded ours last year, P,1000 ang fee that time. Also, marereset yung contract kapag nagdowngrade ka, new contract for the new (downgraded) plan.
Dati, I am doing it thru chat.globe.com.ph pero hindi na pwede ngayon, either go to a Globe store or call them at 211 or Customer Care (02) 730 1000.

Hi Roy, yes 150GB (100GB for Youtube, 50GB for regular data based on Globe’s fineprint). Ganda nga sana kung 150GB open access..
Ginagawa yan ng iba, nililipat yung modem sa ibang lugar. Yung iba, sabi naman naka lock sa certain cell site yung SIM kaya hindi gumana nung nilipat sa malayo layong area. Mas maganda try mo personally, but ofcourse, if ever man na humingi ka ng support from Globe, dapat nasa installation address na binigay mo ang modem.

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

Hi brynn, DSL.
» Posted By Raz On June 17, 2017 @ 10:21 pm
Go Big is offered for wired connections only.

Hi Tere, sorry for late reply. Yes, it can read 1TB hard disk drive.

Hi Ken, yun bang Ace Logo sa baba ng screen ang sinasabi mo? Hindi po siya umiilaw. Yung red led indicator light ang iilaw if you plug the tv to an electric socket tapos mamamatay din yung red light kapag sinindi mo na talaga ang TV. Regarding the firmware, di ko po alam kung saan pwede.

You’re welcome Sensu! 🙂

Hi Roden, did you already try a different mobile number?
» Posted By Raz On October 18, 2017 @ 9:25 pm
Hi Den, sorry to hear that. I have used the service regularly since its launch, and it fails me about 1 in 30 top-up I did (system complaining about a wrong mobile number). All this via both Mastercard and Visa payment. You may want to try again using another Mastercard or Visa CC.

Hi @Driz_12:disqus, oo naman. Haha. Sana kung maglabas man, ibalik na sana yung dating rule sa LTE, kung by data volume pa rin ang offers.
» Posted By Raz On May 31, 2017 @ 7:13 am
Hi! Yes, it is 256kbps (kilobit/sec) = 32kB/sec = 0.256mbps.
» Posted By Raz On March 29, 2017 @ 2:27 pm
This is indeed very confusing Driz. Regarding the plans, bakit kailangan maglabas nanaman ng “revamp” plans. Why not just modify the existing system na hindi na mabawas sa data allocation kapag ginamit ang freebies. Then, notify the users about it. Anyway, we’re not using any of the freebies given. Hindi nga din namin sila inactivate, even spotify, since I already had a separate subscription.
Hmmm. I’ll just leave this post as is. Let the comment section speak nalang for users’ actual experience. Thank you for the update Driz!

Thanks for the update Mark. I guess kailangan na i-edit nag post at ganun na talaga ang rule for LTE subs.
» Posted By Raz On February 6, 2017 @ 11:14 am
Dahil po dun sa HOOQ, na nagkakahalaga ng P149. Yun yung nadagdag sa bill niyo.
» Posted By Raz On January 9, 2017 @ 11:27 am
Yes Mark, Unless po you cancel the HOOQ and Netflix subscription.
