Globelines Broadband at 2Mbps

Got home this evening to find pamphlets at my doorstep from Globe. Apparently they are now offering broadband connections to residential areas with speeds of up to 2Mbps. Sweet.

Here are the DSL rates and prices:

*GenTxt Express Unlimited

Monthly Fee: Php995
DSL Speed: 384kbps

Express Unlimited
Monthly Fee: Php1,495 (promo price of Php995 just now)
DSL Speed: 384kbps

Explore Silver
Monthly Fee: Php1,995
DSL Speed: 768kbps

Explore Gold
Monthly Fee: Php2,995
DSL Speed: 2Mbps

* I think the GenTxt plan is for students. Not sure about it but looks very similar to the PLDT DSL student rate before (Plan 998 or something). And read this — a Globelines landline subscription is NOT a prerequisite to Globelines broadband.

The 2Mbps under Explore Gold plan did took most of my attention. Really, really nice to have something like that at home all by myself. And to think that only last year, I was paying GreenDot Php2,750 for a mere 256kbps connection.

    Globe is the worst of the worst among internet providers in the Philippines. The slowest of the slowest in the industry. Customer complaints fall on deaf ears. Nagtataka ako kung bakit they are still in the business. Nakakatawa nga everytime we see their tv ads na they are the fastest provider. Shame on you!

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.
