Healthy competition drives prices down and at the end of the day, consumers win. So it’s not a surprise that Globe Telecom has dropped its Globe Visibility Mobile Prepaid kit down to just Php3,500.
If you check out their new ad, the listing already reflects the new price. Globe started offering their new prepaid and postpaid plans for Visibility back in June 23 when we first reported it here.
This could be a response to the SmartBro 3G Price Cuts on the prepaid kits (Php3,800).
What’s a bit curious though is the difference between the pricing schedule on overage for the prepaid and the postpaid.
GV Prepaid: Php5 per 15 minute session
GV Postpaid: Php0.50 per minute (translates to Php7.50 per 15 minutes)
And while the prepaid pricing seems cheaper, the per minute charging makes sense for multiple but short internet usage like checking emails.
