Globe drops Tattoo Prepaid stick price to Php995

In a press release sent just now, Globe announced that they are lowering the prepaid price of their Tattoo Prepaid USB dongle to only Php995.

Not exactly sure how much it was before but as far as I can remember, it used to be around Php1,245.

The Globe-powered Tattoo has just upped the ante on its popular broadband stick, dropping the price to just Php995 and packing it chock-full with 120 hours of surfing good for 5 days.

The price drop was made effective since last week The 120 free hours has a value of Php250 (when converted to SuperSurf50).

Globe Tattoo sticks started out in the Php3k price range when they were first introduced in the market many years ago.

The kit comes with a Tattoo Broadband USB Device, SIM pack, USB cable, and user manual. To activate the 5 days free surfing, just send FREE120 to 8888 via the dialer.

(Note: Globe used to offer Php895 with Php100 free load as early as last year but that was on a limited or promo basis. This one looks like it’s a permanent price cut.)

    I used to be a regular Globe Tattoo Broadband user until they implemented a broadband cap of 800mb a day for prepaid users. Too bad. I am now a regular Smart Bro prepaid user and its fast naman in the areas where I use it – Pasig City (Ortigas Center, at home, Fonterra Verde area), Mandaluyong City (SM MegaMall and Shangrila)Quezon City (Eastwood, Trinoma,SM North EDSA), Makati City (Makati Central Business District, Glorietta and Greenbelt) and Taguig (Fort Bonifacio Global City).

    When I conducted my own speed test (thru http://www.speedtest.net) Smart Bro is faster than Globe Tattoo. If only Globe will take away that 800mb broadband cap I will use Globe Tattoo again.

    I’m guessing this is a reaction to the recent survey/study that placed them at the bottom of the list of mobile internet sticks when it came to speed/quality.

    I use Globe DSL and it’s OK. I tried Tattoo once but it just doesn’t break it in my area.

    ^this used to be the price… now globe is saying its reduced to P995… common globe???

    What’s new, mukang nalulugi na ata ung Globe pati ang Smart nakisabay narin sa price drop. Napansin nila na wala na gano bumibili ng products nila kaya tuloy binabaaan nila ung price. Thats simple economics, if the Price is high then the demand is low but if the price is lower then the demand is high. Dapat nga mas mura pa sa 995 ung price knowing na gawa lng sa china lahat ng ginagamit ng 3 big networks sa broadband nila unlike sa U.S. na branded talaga.

    I presumed that, it is their strategy of attracting more subscribers to shift to Globe Tattoo.

    I think I bought mine @P895. That was probably a year ago. Used to be the cheapest in the market. :)

  13. Would like to try Sun Broadband for a change :)

  14. its a promo, not permanent

    “Promo period is from July 23 to August 8, 2011 per DTI-NCR Permit No. 6624, Series of 2011″

    I bought both smart/globe tattoo sticks a year and a half ago but all simply didn’t wrk. I am more interested in sharing wireless network at our office even though it’s slow and losses connection most of the day at least don’t have to pay for the crap (stick and load). :))
