So I looked at how Globe does their capping for unlimited mobile internet (SuperSurf) and found out that their Fair Use Policy has a somewhat similar strategy. Though this time, it’s 800MB per day.
Was wondering at first why they did it on a daily basis instead of monthly then realized that there’s no 30-day SuperSurf for prepaid (just for postpaid).
An 800MB daily cap translates to 24GB per month (30 days) so that seems reasonable. I guess their tagline “Walang Metro” only applies to the time-based not not really the bandwidth.
However, unlike Smart’s Fair Use Policy which throttles you down to a slower speed, Globe’s SuperSurf will totally disconnect you to their network when you reach the daily limit. You can go back and surf again the following day, when your 800MB quota will be refreshed.
