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.

    The question is, are there fiber facilities for all areas with Bayantel subscribers?

  2. JYB says:

    unlimited data to limited data. . NO WAY!

    • Mike says:

      Haha tumpak!
      They intentionally missed some very important information on their banner which are how much the speed you are going to upgrade to and what is the data cap?

  3. Vance says:

    I called globe /bayntel hotline, promo not yet available.

  4. emjhay says:

    I twitter talk2GLOBE and they said fiber is available in our area, Brgy. Holy Spirit (Doña Juana Zone), Quezon City.

    Yugatech,

    You’ve had really sloppy writing lately. Take this article for instance. It’s helpful only as far as informing us about the existence of the promo. There’s no link to any site for more information, nor is there any evidence that research was done at all prior to publication.. There’s also a picture that would have been more helpful had it been accompanied by a caption telling readers where and when it was taken. Please be more considerate to readers and your advertisers as well. You have a great thing going here, and I do love your posts (to a certain degree). It’s time to take this a little more seriously…

    Bakit sobrang contradicting? Tumawag ako sa CS ng Globe the other day and sabi may 24-months lock in period? Nakakainis talaga ang Globe!!!

  7. Glenn says:

    Do not fall for this trap. Pag nag change kayo dito magkakaroon kayo ng data allowance/ cap. I prefer my existing Bayantel, kahit 3mbps lang wlang data cap.

    If you really want to upgrade to a higher speed, I recommend PLDT may 50% off for 6 months at wla pang data monthly restriction.

    Do not fall for this trap.

      switched from bayantel.. transferred to pldtdsl. 3mbps, unli. 3yrs lock-in with first 12mons 50% off regular rate. saved 7800 pesos on the first year. payed 3900 pre-termination fee. now. i’m switching to SkyCable Lite Plan 999. 8mbps, 40mb cap/month, limited cable channel. will upgrade to unli if needed or switch to fiber once available.

  8. R says:

    Do not upgrade to globe fiber from bayantel. Pangit ang connection ng fiber, may data capping, 10GB/day lang sabi ng customer service. Walang kwenta sa 1st day lang maayus speed.

  9. rawr says:

    sabi nila wala daw data capping
    could anyone confirm this before i fell for their trap

  10. Jan says:

    Totoo ba? Natawagan kami eh na “we were chosen daw for free upgrade” gawing upto 3mbps with no data, which I tried to confirm. oo naman daw. Mas mura nga lang kasi siya 999 na lang yung plan tas free na lahat. Umoo na lang ako. Di na rin naman masyado kami mainternet sa bahay.Try na lang. :l

    globe offer me that im currently using bayantel 2400 plan 5 mbps with landline .. 100g cap per month but unli fb once consumed reduce speed to half only ..i reject the installation offer cause their going to replace with the same speed 5mbps fiber connection..and the worst thing ,, it has 10 g cap per day .. which the agent did not mention.. once consume speed is reduced to 300 kbps only before refresh .. what a stupid offer from globe migration..

  12. sLiCkyWoRm says:

    I received a call from Globe Loyalty team. The program is to migrate from BayanTel to Globe Fiber. They will migrate the same Speed and Price but this time, no data cap. I asked if I can upgrade the plan, he said that upgrades will be done after the migration. So, based on the comments above, it seems like they are just migrating to Globe and retain the same plan . For me, the only difference was the Data Cap (from 100GB to Unlimited).

  13. lance ramos says:

    Correct si slickyworm…ganun na nga ang mangyayari…magiging fiber na line mo…pero same pa rin ung speed ng connection mo and no capping…prang di mo pa rin ma fe-feel ung fiber kc walang nagbago…ung mga physical line/cable and modem papalitan..gagawing pang fiber….pati ata monthly bills mo same pa rin “ata”…parang naka-abang lang ata ung mga fiber equipment pra kung gusto mo tlaga mag upgrade ng mabilis-bilis na pang fiber tlaga na plan nila…kaso lahat may bandwidth capping.

    Tama po si Mick.. ISANG MALAKING KAGAGUHAN ANG GLOBE! Isa po ako sa mga nauto. gigil na gigil ako kasi nagpunta kami mismo sa globe at nakita ko yung exclusive offer nila sa bayantel customer na free upgrade to globe fiber, walang babayaran, etc etc. so nag inquire ako at nag fill up ng request form.. ang sabi ng mismong taga globe eh unli nga daw yang inooffer nila since para daw hindi kami lumipat ng ibang network kaya daw nag offer ng ganyan si globe sa bayan customers. Inulit ko pa sakanya ang tanong kung UNLI ba talaga, oo daw. Mabuti na lang nagbasa muna ako ng reviews at eto nga nakita ko itong mga posts nyo. Dahil litong lito na ko, tumawag ulit ako sa globe para itanong at ang sabi, may DATA CAP nga daw iyon at wala ng inooffer na UNLIMITED si globe. Maswerte pa rin ako at naipacancel ko pa kundi nagsisisi ako ngayon bakit ako nagpauto sakanila. Kaya po wag po kayo maniniwala sa bola ng mga yan sayang lang mas maganda pa din si bayantel kahit papano at mas madali pang tumawag sa hotline nila sa globe abutin ka ng siyam siyam kahihintay.

    • Strong says:

      GANYAN DIN ANG OFFER SA AMIN, UNLIMITED DATA SA GLOBE FIBER from BAYANTEL.

      So hindi totoo talaga? Bakit ang daming comments dito na hindi UNLI?

  15. mau says:

    paki ayos nmn internet nyo pati landline wla wla p 1month wla agad dial tone galing nmn po tpos super bagal pa tlga

  16. Limbo says:

    naku magingat kayo sa scam na ito, I was informed no capping tapos may capping pala, kaya pinacut ko agad, dapat dito penalized ng government sa ginagawa nila na panloloko…..they specifically told me nung tumawag sila na No Capping, wala na babayaran, upgrade my old bayantel 2mbps to globe fiber and gagawing 3mbps. Kaya I cleared it with them na sure ka na no capping a, kaya ako pumayag. Tapos nadiskubre ko nalang isang araw na na-CAP ako so I called to complain, ilang weeks din naghihintay ako ng info tatawagan daw ako or eemail, wala nangyari, kaya ako na ulit tumawag kanina, Sabi ng kausap ko no capping daw yan pero may 10Gb na limit per day magrerefresh….HAHAHA sabi ko niloloko mo ba ako, ayun pinacut ko sayang yung 12 years na loyalty ko kay bayantel sinira ni globe yung relationship.

  17. jim says:

    aw kaka migrate ko lang to globe fiber.sabi kasi nung agent mawawala na daw si bayantel kasi binili na ni globe!!! wtf! mandatory ang paglipat samin..

    • mad abril says:

      Feck! Yan din sabi saken nung globe people na nagpunta, mandatory ang pagpalit. Nung una sinasabi ko ayoko magpalit!

      Binasa ko pala dapat muna ito.

  18. Rina says:

    have you managed to get any new updates on this? somebody came to my door offering the same free installation-same monthly fee-faster connection bayan to globe fiber migrate offer, but I can’t find anything online to verify the information and my other plan options, and after reading the comments here, the whole thing sounds sketchy

  19. Bhevz says:

    TRue po ba to? Na may capping yung sinasabi nilang unli? Naka sked pa nman aq ngaun magpa migrate sa globe fiber dahil sinabihan aq na no cash out dahil bayan costumer aq., at maganda daw ang fiber kahit daw may bagyo meron pa ring connection? Any suggestion po? Kung itutuloy q pa po ba ang pag migrate sa globe fiber or hindi na? Thank u sa sasagot

  20. Gregg says:

    Isang malaking kahibangan ang pagpapa-upgrade mula bayantel dsl to globe fiber. Wala naman akong nakitang pagbabago bagkus ay lalo pang bumagal ang internet connection noong bagong migrate lang nakita ko mabilis komonnect pero after a few days …. paikot ikot muna ng matagal bago makaconnect sa website na gusto mong puntahan. Mas mabilis pa yong dating bayantel dsl….

  21. richard fajardo says:

    upgrade ko sana net ko to fiber

  22. Jhoizee says:

    Sa akin nga inupgrade nila ng wala man lang abiso, wala naman ako request tapos nagulat ako sa bill ko bat doble, sabay sabi nila kasi po ma’am required po kayo na magbigay ng advance payment, anong klaseng kagaguhan yun…!!!! Sabi ko wala akong pinirmahan kaya ibalik niyo sa dati kong plan yan!!!? Kainis!!!!?

  23. 1234567890 says:

    globe UPDATE:
    Connection time out sudden lags di ko alam kung bakit mas maganda pa copper ng bayantel kesa sa bubogwires ng globe. not recommended for gaming like lols,fps. etc. likely kahit download from ph servers. like youre in a 5mbps then jumps to 1 mbps mas mabilis pa 1mbps ng bayantel so yes wag kayo lumipat mga bobo.
