Globe caps SuperSurf at 800MB per day

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.

Poll: What's the best mobile internet plan for you?
Globe PowerSurf: Php99 for 50MB, Php499 for 1GB

    1. not limited; unrestricted; unconfined
    2. boundless; infinite; vast
    3. without any qualification or exception; unconditional.
    you don’t advertise it as unlimited if there’s going to be a condition.

    BLAH…BLAH… ang advertising nga naman makapanloko lang….

    Kung gagamit kayo ng Internet using portables dongles, use Sun Broadband Wireless instead. Sa Sun Broadband Wireless kasi mas tiwala ako when it comes to broadband sticks dahil matagal bago ma-reach ang quota. Wala namang sinabi ang Globe Tattoo sticks nila eh dinaan lang nila kayo sa ads nilang napakaganda pero di kagandahan ang services. Kung loyal kayo sa Globe then stick to their broadband para hindi kayo naaabala sa bandwith quota.

    Misleading sila. Kung magadvertise sila ‘no limits’ ‘unlimited surfing’ daw. Yun pla my 800mb limit. Paano mo mae-enjoy ang 50 pesos mo kung ganon? Wla pang klahating araw di kna mkpg-search. Anong silbi ng tagline nilang ‘Live without limits’???? Mga manloloko.

    Misleading talaga Globe. Sa US pwede sila sue.. Class action lawsuit lang. Unless ibahin nila ads nila. Sabihin nila ang totoo na may limit na 800MB. Ni walang nabanggit nito sa ads nila. Madaya talaga. SMART and SUN totoong walang limit. oo capped na after a certain MB is reached. pero at least di ka disconnected. Kung sino man may pera sa inyo para magsimula ng class action lawsuit, panigurado madami sasali. Wala kasing choice sa area namin kundi Globe. Bwisit nga eh.

    Napaka walang kwenta ng Globe, akala ko pa naman “No Limits” yun pla 800MB lng wala ka nang net. Napaka sinungaling at misleading ang mga advertisement nila. Dapat ipaCensor ung mga pinagsasabi nila, oh kaya sinasabi nila sa advertisement na may Cap pla ang connction nila. “Unlimited”? “No Limits”? I was expecting so much from Tattoo, though it seems that it failed me. Babalik na lang ako ky Bro.

    Guys meron ba gusto bumili ng Globe Tatto Stick jan, Brand new, 1 week pa lng nabibili nand2 pa resibo. benta ko Php500 n lang.

    So stupid why unli 24/7 net if you have a cap and disconnection where’s the 24/7? if you have a cap where`s the unlimited if there`s a cap of 800mb. I just bought my broadband today and reading this comments really helped a lot thanks. Bye bye broadband I just waste money for a lying company…. Its just wrong… so wrong… I`m sorry Globe… Just telling what I am feeling Hope you understand why other no all costumers are upset… please value your customers more than earning more money and posting false ads….

    Me and my boyfriend love`s to surf the net connection is good but there`s a cap? on T.V. commercials said its unlimited? The connection is good but and I thought its a dream come true but its not…. oh well at least their web site tells that on a stipulated time it will return… I guess we just have to wait till that time comes ^_^… its kinda boring though without Internet at lease he has more time with me rather than surfing the net all day… His a bit agitated right now… and so angry cause he can`t connect to his net we are currently using sharing with my wifi connection hope mine does not disconnect too soon

    Globe Telecoms ‘Fair Usage Policy’: Deceptive and Bad for PH
    Posted: April 6th, 2011 | Author: TXTPower | Filed under: News | 3 Comments »
    Globe Telecoms, the perennial second placer in the mobile telecoms sector, is not doing any good to the Philippines and its subscribers with its deceptively-labeled Fair Usage Policy. Worse, it may be a convenient way to hide problems in network capacity, quality and reliability of telcos, which is an obvious hindrance to more widespread use of the internet and social media as an enabler for stakeholders in the country’s progress.

    Globe Telecom’s data caps which allegedly target the abusive five percent of its subscribers actually cover 100 percent of all of Globe Telecom subscribers. Is that fair? No.

    Telcos such as Globe Telecoms should be careful in referring to any of its subscribers as “abusers” especially in this age of the internet and social media. Those same abusers may actually be small and medium-scale businesses, home-based online entrepreneurs, OFW families keeping constant touch or netizens in the cutting-edge of surging social media in the Philippines.

    We call on President Aquino to direct the National Telecommunications Commission to perform its functions as telecom regulator. It should check whether Globe Telecom has sufficient network infrastructure and bandwidth for its 26.5 million mobile subscribers and 1.1 million broadband subscribers. There is a growing suspicion that Globe Telecom imposed the data caps not so much because of user abuse, but maybe due to the network’s oversubscription and insufficient network capacity for both current and future subscribers. All telcos should be covered by this NTC appraisal and inventory.

    Globe Telecom’s data cap announcement claims that five percent of its mobile internet and broadband users purportedly corner 80 percent of available bandwidth. This “figure” is no different and may be the same figure cited in late 2010 by the Philippine Chamber of Telecom Operators. Both are at the very least suspect. But something should come out because of these claims by Globe Telecom and PCTO: These so-called “studies” ought to compel the NTC to perform its own, independent checks covering usage, current network infrastructure and both ongoing and future investments to expand both reach and bandwidth capacity. NTC should penalize telcos that underdeliver and let their services to be oversubscribed or to be falsely advertised.

    Before Globe Telecoms and other PCTO members point to telcos in countries as models for their data caps, we should remind them that many of those countries have fast and reliable internet in the first place. That cannot be said for telcos in the Philippines which cannot provide true 3G, 3.5G and 4G connections. Telcos led by PLDT and Globe Telecom are pulling the Philippines to the bottom of lists of countries in terms of internet speeds.

    Globe Telecom argues that there’s no law or regulations stopping it from imposing data caps. That is not true. It was among the telcos which helped put out the draft NTC memorandum-circular on minimum broadband speed. Bowing to consumer protests, the NTC has already decided against the provision on data caps. We hope the NTC stands by its decision and that telcos, led by Globe Telecom would abide by it.

    President Aquino should keep an eye on internet speeds and service quality because more and more Filipinos are going online for business and work, education, advocacy and causes, and other important purposes. Internet access ought to be an open, affordable and reliable enabler. The irony is that while more and more governments worldwide have realized this and are moving towards greater and universal access, telcos in the Philippines are out to curtail usage and are allowed to gouge the public with their substandard and unreliable services.

  19. Uncle says:

    The problem is: If it comes to internet – the Philippines unfortunately don’t have a free market. Smartbro and Globe share the market and until now they can do what they want. If the government would allow foreign companies to get in, thousands of Globe and Smartbro subscriber would swap to other providers. There would be no more forced 2 years contracts and the prices would drop dramatically.
