Comparison: Globe No Lock-up vs Smart Line-only Giga Plans




globe-vs-smart-line-only-plan-crop

Smart has just introduced Giga Plans as its latest postpaid offering. They have also included Line-only plans for those who are not fond of the two-year commitment with the network. Globe also has this offering under their current myLifestyle No Lock-up plans. Let’s compare the two and see which telco offers the best monthly service plan.

Both telcos don’t offer any handset discount under these plans which is the trade-off of a contract-free postpaid plan. You can terminate your subscription anytime you want plus you get more allowance compared to regular plans.

Seems like Smart is giving a lot of data to its postpaid subs with up to twice the data Globe offers. As for calls, Globe allows unlimited calls within their network while Smart gives a number of minutes to call anyone in the country. Both gives freedom in texting anyone in any network.

Since Smart’s offering is new, we expect Globe to battle this out anytime soon. A healthy competition like this is good for consumers.

    The Globe plans posted on this article and on Globe’s website looks like the ones they had 2 months ago. I’m not sure about the other plans but as far as my no lock-up plan is concerned, I used to pay P999 monthly for 5gb data. But starting last month, I’m now paying only P799 for 6gb data. With unlimited text to all networks, unlicalls to Globe/TM, free facebook for 24 months and free premium Spotify for 3 months.

    for those who have leftover data at the end of their billing cycles, globe has an option to roll over – which will be better suited for them IMO

  3. trapik says:

    Globe is for call/text while Smart is for data and text. Bottomline, depends on your needs.

    Last year, I subscribed to Globe’s ?499 sim only plan. It has 3GB data and unlimited calls & texts to Globe.

    I’ve been playing a Mobile Game App (Ingress) for over 3 years. The game constantly needs an internet connection, so I’ve been switching networks to get a “better mobile data experience”. Globe has a better “connection” (LTE signal, constant speed, lesser data drops/blackouts) than Smart

  8. damarkcus says:

    The catch is after 2 years, the monthly cost will increase if you choose to extend your plan. I have a 499 sim-only plan from a year ago with unlicall/unlitext to Globe and 3Gb data. This will increase to 799 by next year. The difference with this year’s sim-only plans is the inclusion of ‘Unlimited texts to all networks’. This will probably add 299p to your monthly cost after the promo ends in 2 years.

    • Hi! The Plan 499 with 3GB data was a limited promo just like the current Plan 999 down to Plan 799. I also have the Plan 499 promo and it seems that it also has the unli all-net text now.

    • Policarpio B. says:

      P299 is the cost for 2years satisfaction from free facebook + additional 3GB data + Unlimited texts to all network. You may want to apply. Tomorrow is the deadline. Mic drop.
