Globe to drop PowerSurf for GoSurf

Some of the initial releases (Galaxy S5 and Spotify press releases) and sources close to Globe have confirmed that the telco will be overhauling their data plans — completely dropping both SuperSurf and PowerSurf promos in exchange for a unified GoSurf data plans.

We don’t have the complete details of the GoSurf plans but a few of them were also mentioned in their Galaxy S5 and Spotify pages.

GoSURF1010MB for 24 hours (free Spotify access, data not counted against quota)

GoSURF 299700MB for 30 days

GoSURF 9995,000MB for 30 days

It is likely that once you reach your 5GB limit for the 999 plan, you can just subscribe again for another 5GB after that or any of the lower-tier GoSurf plans.

The old PowerSurf plans were more expensive (Php99 for 50MB, Php299 for 300MB and Php499 for 1GB).

The new GoSurf is very similar to PowerSurf while SuperSurf will be completely removed from the offering. This concretely enforces the telco’s move to shift to volume based pricing instead of time-based charging (thus obliterating the whole issue on data caps).

Globe will probably make the formal announcement on Monday next week.

Updated: @talk2globe has tweeted that they will not discontinue SuperSurf plans to current subscribers. We’ve updated our story to reflect this.

    Wala bang free ice cream or free lipstick? Ganyan ang promo ng Globe for every new sim bought a decade ago.

  2. Glenn says:

    Well at least fair na for all. The old PowerSurf plans were more expensive pa nga eh.

    This is still expensive. If you create your promo thru 143 it’s 300php for 1gb for a month

    • sam witwicky says:

      Yeah, I’ve been doing this for months and it’s been so useful. I hope that one still survives, this GoSurf doesn’t really make me want to Go use it >_>

    • Edgy Dulds says:

      Agree! I also use *143# to get more than what existing plans have. Mas tipid pa kasi mas mura sa existing promo at may dagdag pa texts or calls.

    • Anon says:

      Yeah, mas ok nga sa *143# Go Sakto. Mas mura kung gagawin mong combo (500 mins call, 250 sms, 1GB data plan).

      this is just a strategy to stop downloading free music torrents.. if you are really trying to save up every buck, just download the music for free.. and stick to the cheaper internet promos thru go sakto.. you don’t really need spotify

  4. Wenggay says:

    Let us just wait for Globe’s announcement instead of speculating. To be fair, GoSurf sounds exciting than FUP.

    • czarina says:

      Yes, Yugatech says they might release their official statement on Monday, sana earlier since I’m excited to learn more about GoSurf.

  5. charina says:

    i think this is fair for users and much clearer.

  6. Amir says:

    Basta I don’t have problems with my prepaid data subscription sa Smart at P999.00/mo. It’s UNLIMITED maski umabot pa ako ng 4GB of downloads a day.

  7. Alphere says:

    This is now fairer for me instead of FUP. Now people who actually use lot of data will pay for more. No more limited unlimited, no more deception. Pay for what you use.

  8. Yoona says:

    I really hate Globe when they had the FUP thing. It was like false advertising. But I have to admit it, this is a good move.

  9. Sheesh says:

    Still expensive.

    • Edgy Dulds says:

      Well, expensive if you’re going to compare it to other countries. But so far, I believe it is the cheapest in the country. I’ve been managing may data usage so that I can maximize each kB.

  10. SunCell Subscriber says:

    Okay na sana, kaso tinanggal pa yung unlimited 2G. WTF. haha

    Well, choice niyo na yan. 3GB + Unlimited 2G wherein pwede pa kayong makapag-check man lang ng e-mail while on the go. Or 5GB tapos icha-charge ka na ng Globe ng P5/15 mins. of browsing. hahaha!

  11. Rainbow Rat says:

    This would be Ok if the service is reliable. Buti na lang nakaSmart ako. Sana huwag lang sila gumaya sa Globe. Anong silbi ng Iphone 5s mo kung 2g lang speed ng internet mo. Imbis na pagandahin ang infrastracture lalong going backwards ang technology ng globe. 4g ka nga pero 15 minutes mo lang magagamit. Tsk. Well sorry Globe Users.. I guess now you want to “LIVE MORE”

  12. MrPhabletBulacan says:

    di ba dati 50 pesos for 24 hours or 800mb, 300 for 7 days (800mb per day limit) at 999 for 30 days (with the same 800mb daily limit) so asan ang mura dyan? nagtaas na ang halaga ng internet sa pinas…

    smart & globe user here and im not impressed with both their mobile internet service, lamang lang ng konti ang smart kasi minsan may lugar na mabilis internet ko sa iphone ko, pero madalas full bar signal facebook lang di mabuksan… paying 2k for my monthly subscription is kind of a waste…

    Pumapangit sang offer ng mga telcos dito Pinas. Lalo na sa data connection. Sa halip maktulong sila as edukasyon lalo lang inilalayo mga kabataan para matuto. Sa lahat ng net users wag kaya tau magnet as using buwan o kahit week man lang. Tinfnan natin at nibigay son mga gahaman name telcos na into. Sa NTC naman bakit do ninyo utusan mga telcos na ayusin service nila. Kampi pa yata sa kanila…kaiinis!

  14. Grabe naman yung bago nilang offer at tinanggal pa nila yung supersurf. Well yung sufersurf naman nila eh walang kwenta may cap na 800mb tapos sinasabi pa nila na Unlimited eh in the world unlimited hindi nauubos dapat ang lingay nila dun limited. It’s bettery narin na lumipat sa Smart and hoping si smart ay hindi gumaya sa Globe.

  15. kamote says:

    10mb = 2 full webpages only. dont bother.

  16. arkaye says:

    Based on the website of Globe, the new GoSurf plans are more expensive than the old PowerSurf plans. Why? Because the PowerSurf Plans have a bill-shock of only Php999, while the GoSurf plans have a more expensive bill-shock of Php1500. :\

  17. Frost says:

    Ok sakin toh ung 799= 3gb for mobile browsing…

    Pero kung sa pc ko gagamitin ubos yan wala pa isang oras…

    Kaya mag wimax ka na lang para makabawi ka kay globe..

    Paano naging mas fair ang ganitong plan ng globe? eh dinaya na kayo “good move” pa ang nasasabi niyo? di ko alam kung ano ang mas nakaka-inis ang capitalism ng globe or ang utak niyo.

    http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/357617/scitech/technology/phl-internet-slowest-in-asean-report

    basahin niyo yan. ang ibang bansa nagbabayad lang ng maliit pa sa 1 dollar para sa speed ng 3mbps natin habang tau ay nagbabayad ng higit pa sa 22 dollars. may cap limit din ang ibang bansa pero 3 digit gb (250gb, 150gb) for 20 dollars at mas mabilis pa kanilang internet. magresearch muna kau bago magsabi ng magandang move yan ng globe.

    dapat kasi may mag-sue nyan sa globe or sa smart sa kanilang ginagawa. Sila ang may kasalanan bakit kulelat ang pinas. mga kapitalista. lagyan mo pa nang bobo at kurakot na gobyerno. may pag-asa pa ba ang pinas?

    • Paupau says:

      mali kinocompare mo kuya sa link mo. yung Cheap net na yan ay dsl rates. Mahal din ang mobile net sa US.

      http://time.com/7982/which-wireless-plan-is-cheapest/

      from that article:
      AT&T’s new 2 GB pricing puts an individual plan at $2,320 over two years. T-Mobile’s costs plan, which offers 3 GB of shared data, is still a little bit cheaper at $2,328.

    • shinsou says:

      @Paupau

      cute. ang 2nd link na binigay ko kasali na mobile internet jan. hindi dsl. Ang first link na man ay general internet connection.

      ang link na binigay mo ay sa US lang. Wala nga nakakalahati ang US sa South Korea sa bilis at more or less times 10 ang presyo ng US sa Korea.

      ang link mo din assuming bibili ka ng phone worth $200 at sa mga ISP companies ka bibili ng phone.

      mas mabilis din ang internet ng USA sa atin kaya may konting justice kung bakit sila mas mahal. Isa ang US sa pinakamahal na internet connection. Basahin mo sa ibang news. Marami pang mga bansa na cheaper ang internet connection sa US

    i hate this …u know its better 2 have 5 hrs of internet over 3 days for 50pessos without limmit than 2 have a 250 mb over 3 days for 50 pessos….so sad they removed powersurf…better switch 2 smart

  20. aws says:

    I super hate this promo….globe says live without limit, but definitely with gosurf limits the customers surfing… I’m favored with Powersurf because for only 15pesos u have one hour unlisurf , meaning to say it doesn’t care whether u download more than 20mb in a minute than gosurf, in my experience the globe connection in our area was fast and i can download upto 350mb, i can watch movies without lag but with this in just 15mins. my unlisurf was expired. the problem is what if the area has fast internet connection and can download 20mb in a minute, then you waste your money without meaningful sense??????
