Bayantel subs get free upgrade to Globe Fiber internet
Globe is giving Bayantel subscribers a free upgrade to their fiber network. This offer encourages old or existing subscribers to move to the Globe network by giving them faster internet for the same broadband plan they’re currently paying with Bayantel.
UPDATE (8/10/2017 – 3:20PM): We received clarification that the promo is only for Bayan customers in Quezon City for now. They can upgrade for free with no additional fees, lockup will not be refreshed, but just continued. (Subject to serviceability. Agents are tasked to check before confirming upgrade.
The new broadband plan will not be locked refreshed, which means the lock-in period will not be extended to another 24 months from the upgrade and they will remain with their old contracts.
In December 2012, Globe effectively took over the operations of BayanTel although they continue to service the existing customers using the old network. This promotion will hopefully help get subscribers to move from the old network into Globe’s fiber network.
That’s all the info we have for now. We’ve reached out to Globe for more details and update this article once we get them.
