Looks like Globe has upgraded the speed of their Tattoo Superstick 4G to 21Mbps. Saw this ad last Monday on the newspaper for a new add-on or upgradable plan with the Tattoo 4G.
The promo goes like this:
When you get a regular Globe Tattoo Postpaid Plan 999, you pay a monthly service fee of Php999 a month. The promised speed here is up to 7.2Mbps.
You then get a free subscription to the online versions of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Yes!, Cosmo or FHM.
You now have the option to upgrade the Tattoo Stick to a Tattoo Superstick (the MyFi) for an additional Php150/month for 24 months. This allows you to share your WiFi to 5 devices at the same time. You still get up to 7.2Mbps here.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 12Mbps, just add Php100/month.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 15Mbps, just add Php150/month.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 21Mbps, just add Php200/month.
So, when you pick all the upgrades (i.e. Php999 for Stick + Php150 for Superstick upgrade + Php200 for 21Mbps upgrade), you’ll end up with a monthly service fee of Php1,349.
Not bad for a MyFi device with speeds of up to 21Mbps, right? Yes, it’s tempting.
Note though that Globe’s 4G label refers to their HSPA+ network so you’ll have to be within range of those towers in order to get the optimum speeds.
Also take note the lock-in period for this plan is 24 months.
