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.
GoSURF10 – 10MB for 24 hours (free Spotify access, data not counted against quota)
GoSURF 299 – 700MB for 30 days
GoSURF 999 – 5,000MB 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.
