Leaked: Globe to offer Internet TV, cheaper DSL prices

In a leaked document we received today from an anonymous source, it looks like Globe is going to introduce their very own Internet TV bundled with a lower DSL price for residential subscribers.

A copy of what could be confidential documents from Globe, it is finalizing deals with media companies to bundle IPTV subscriptions with up 70 channels. This supports the story that a potential Globe and ABS-CBN alliance is being worked out and was first reported as early as November 2012.

Both regular DSL and Fiber subscriptions will have reduced monthly subscription fees (MSF). “Tattoo Torque (the brand Fiber service) will be killed and be integrated to Tattoo@Home for unification“, adds our source.

The price drops for monthly subscriptions are very dramatic with Plan 1099 for 10Mbps with free landline, Plan 1299 for 20Mbps, Plan 1499 for 30Mbps, Plan 2099 for 40Mbps, Plan 3099 for 70Mbps and Plan 4099 for 100Mbps.

For plans 2099 and up, it comes with free landline and Internet TV subscription (70 channels). Plan 1299 and up comes with free landline as well.

What’s more surprising is that they will introduce a Plan 299 with up to 1Mbps, the cheapest DSL plan ever.

Of course, we assume this is only applicable to areas where Globe’s fiber lines are available. If they can offer unlimited LTE of up to 42Mbps on their iPhone 5 plans for Php999 SuperSurf, these new plans are likely to be true.

Word of caution — these are just leaks and rumors so don’t bet on it until we get a final confirmation.

Update: Just got a call from Globe rep stating that these plans are not true. Oh well. It would have been really good for Globe if it were!

In any case, it’s technically not true because it’s in the proposal stage and have not been approved. Until this proposal is approved, we cannot confirm the veracity of this leak.

    Based on my experience sir, Globe pinaka mabilis mag service pag may problem compared sa pldt aabutn ng 1week madalas, sa Globe kinabukasan kagad pupuntahan ka , pero baka depende sa area.

      Billy, You are right, when I was still in the Philippines, the service of PLDt was really worse, I dont know now???. I am now a Globe subscriber for more than 1 year.

      Internet here in New Zealand is very expensive but the service is really fast, that for all wireless companies operating here.

    Let’s say this is true, gano naman ka populated ang isang server? Ang mura nga ang dami ninyo naman gumagamit eh di nag nanakawan kayo nang bandwidth wala rin.

    Kung yung dedicated line nga namin sa office na 1mbps na yung computer ko lang ang may connection nag aaverage lang nang 700-800kbps minsan ang bagal pa yan pa kaya.

    Broadband pricing in the PH is a ripoff. Just compare Sky Broadband’s 10Mbps “consumable” (meaning capped) plan of 35GB for P2,299 vs. Shaw Cable of Canada’s 10Mbps plan costing C$50 (roughly P2,000) per month for 125GB of data cap. The question is, why are we paying over 3x more for broadband compared to a developed country that has a much lower population density (Metro Manila’s population alone is already half of Canada’s entire population) along with a higher cost/standard of living?
