Recently, Globe has been sending out reminders via SMS to some of their subscribers about the Fair Usage Policy that they are enforcing. A number of our readers have sent us reports about the daily bandwidth allocation and throttling regulation.
The FUP basically provides an allowance of 1GB per day or 3GB per month, whichever comes first. Once the allocation is used up, subscribers will moved to their 2G network. That means you still get “unlimited” mobile internet but it will be slower.
This FUP applies to all surfing promos and data plans for Globe postpaid and Tattoo Lifestyle Sticks.
It does not cover surfing charged with regular browsing rates (Php5/15 minutes) and those using PowerSurf.
This mechanism is designed to reduce the speeds of only the 3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic in Globe’s network.
