Friendster and Globe Telecom has partnered to provide all day surfing on their phones to the Friendster Mobile site for only Php20.
This unlimited WAP Data Plan, called Friendster Surf All Day, is available to all Globe prepaid subscribers. Not sure if postpaid subscribers are also included. The Php20 one-time charge will enable users to access m.friendster.com for 24 hours.
Friendster users must have their mobile phones configured to access cellular data using the myGlobe Connect APN to register and use the â€˜Friendster Surf All Dayâ€™ data plan.
Users that do not have the correct myGlobe APN settings can text GO to 2951 or call Globe Customer Service via 730-1000 or toll free via 211.
Looks like a good deal to the millions of Filipinos still hooked up on Friendster. Instead of spending Php20 an hour in an internet cafe, you get 24 hours access on your mobile phone.
Hopefully, more sites will also be included in this type of service plan (like Twitter, Facebook, etc.).
Update: Turns out Smart Comm is also doing the same service plan to Friendster Mobile to its subscribers (as confirmed by Friendster PR). Only difference is that Smart is charging Php25/24hours.
