A reader emailed today about the recent Globe rebranding and points me to their recent DSL package upgrades. Obviously, we’ve all noticed that every time the other ISP upgrades their offerings, the other responds with the same.
That’s healthy competition that benefits the consumers.
There are two sets of packages for Globe’s residential broadband offerings — one is data only and the other is data plus landline. Here’s the pricing and the bandwidth cap:
Plan 995 Data Only -> 1.5mbps
Plan 1995 Data Only -> 3.0mbps
Plan 995 with Landline -> 374kbps
Plan 1295 with Landline -> 1.0mbps
Plan 1995 with Landline -> 2.0mbps
However, for the data plan, their website indicates 1 and 2Mbps only.
There’s also the Php2,500 one-time installation fee. Each packages comes with the DSL modem, free email, and automatic Wi-Fi access at any WiZ hotspot (maximum 2 free hours per month for Plan 1995).
As for the rebranding, a couple their marketing people have told me it’s not just about their image and organizational structure but also the way they do customer service. The latter, we’ll have to find out ourselves.
