Globe Telecom outs new Prepaid Home WiFi for Php1.5K




Globe is now offering a new version of its mobile WiFi in stores — this time it’s not the usual small, compact ones we see everywhere.

globe-prepaid-home-wifi-1495


We’ve spotted this one when we paid our bills at the Globe Store in Trinoma just the other day. Aptly called a ‘Prepaid Home WiFi’, this device is a lot larger, but still compact, compared to mobile WiFi currently offered. Based on information from the box and in-store promotional materials, this one’s a tabletop type which is deemed to be easy to install. Globe also touts this to have 50% stronger WiFi connection versus their current mobile WiFi devices.

Globe Telecom’s Prepaid Home WiFi is now available in stores for Php1,495 and comes with free 5GB of mobile data.

    Receive wifi looks like something is wrong with the article. Maybe it’s boosted 50% output for its wifi signal not globe signal.

    Oh Lord sino bang nakakataas na dapat sabihan/paliwanagan/sumbungan about sa data allocation na 800MB/50 pesos?! Jusko naman sana taasan naman nila yan. Kahit 50MB pa kabilis ang internet mo kung ang data allocation mo 800MB lang?! -_-

    Of course it should be at least 50% stronger WiFi because it is a tabletop model (just like the home wireless routers), as compared to pocket WiFis (shorter range).

    But then, it seems that the data plan is just like those of pocket WiFis. Small data cap and expensive per GB price.

    Definitely not any stronger signal when it comes to 3G or LTE.

    I got this one yesterday. Nakainstall na yung prepaid sim sa mismong device pero pwede alisin yung “do not tamper” para palitan ng sim. Yung device manufacturer is unknown. Nakalagay lang is LTE International Inc. Nung ginamit ko to using my Globe Tattoo Postpaid SIM, mas malakas sumagap ng LTE signal compared sa pocket WiFi. Makati area ko ginagamit.

    • Wewe says:

      Parang YOUWIN din ang brand same nun LTE. Yun sakin kasi LTE wifi un promo ng swap nila.

    • Fau says:

      Pano sya ireregister sa mga promo kung nakainstall yung sim card ‘dapat’ sa unit? Ang weird na nakakabit sya sa unit.

    • Vince says:

      Malakas ba yung LTE nya?

    • Anon says:

      22mbps speed na nakukuha vs. sa 5mbps unlocked Alcatel Y800 ng SMART. Using Globe postpaid sim.

    • Xmen says:

      Fau 1st time moba sa wifi? alam mo ba ang dashboard ng wifi mo un din dun ka mag si send ng mga registration promos… para magamit mo net ng wifi mo!

    • Joern says:

      Yes sir mas malakas sumagap. Nung una nga hesitant pa ko bumili kasi liblib ang lugar namin at di sya kasama sa list ng may LTE coverage sa bulacan. Then nung paguwi ko sa bahay, LTE ang signal nya. Nakakatuwa. May nagawa ding maganda ang globe!

  9. Arvin says:

    Sir may data capping po ba or unlimited internet na ??

    • Yuri says:

      Prepaid kit sya, may included 5GB data. Pag naubos mo na, kailangan register na ng GoSurf packages. Basahin kasi maigi yun article. Wala na ngayon unli mobile internet.

    • Joern says:

      Pero pwede po sya sa supersurf. Supersurf ang gamit namin instead of gosurf. Madami kasi kaming kumokonwek. Sa go surf pag na ubos mo na data allocation, wala na. Sa supersurf, babagal ka lang pero makakapag net ka parin.

  10. Michael Ilano says:

    Does anybody know kung compatible yung device sa 700MHz LTE frequency? I hope I said that right.

  11. Good pm po . This is about my Globe Home Broadband…. My concern is ung landline Naman Po hndi pa DN gumagana 4 days na Po after na nkabitan ako ntong globe home broadband stuff of globe said after 3 days I can use this already but why until now hndi pdn gumana… And one thing that upset me here about globe… Is why using Internet have limits… Na at first na nag apply ako ng LTE wifi hndi man lng na explain skn na ganun pala.. na if Iam always going to use Wi-Fi on YouTube and do downloading possible na 15 days lng ung internet ko then 1300 pdn bill ko. Sana Naman globe explain clearly and very well to their coustomers Kung gaano lng ang capacity ng internet nyo. Hndi ung Saka ko lng mlalaman na ganun pala after nang mkabit ang wifi . I’m sorry but I’m just saying what every customers rght.. ksi ngbbayad nman po ng Tama so sana Po ung service nyo ay Tama din.

  12. Vabad says:

    Has anybody tried globe’s supersurf instead of gosurf on this new home prepaid wifi device? What would you guys recommend, gosurf or supersurf?

    • Joern says:

      Hello po! Opo pwede po s’ya sa supersurf promos. Kaya nga lang po, subjected po sya sa Globe’s FUP. Mababasa nyo po yung FUP sa mismong website ng globe. Yung gosurf po, di po sya sakop ng FUP kasi may data allocation sya. Eventhough may data allocation din yung supersurf, once na maconsume mo po yung 800mb na data, babagal lang po yung speed mo, di sya maka-cut kagaya ng gosurf na once na maubos mo yung data cap, para na ding naexpire yung load mo.

  13. Dicekei says:

    Compatible po ba to sa 700mhz lte ng globe?

  14. mc says:

  15. joy says:

  17. Tony Isidro says:

    Puwede bang gamitin sa prubinsiya ang Prepaid Home Wifi at puwede ko bang insert at gamitin ang globe simcard na ginagamit ko

    • Joern says:

      Depende sir sa probinsya kung nasan ka. Kami po nasa bulacan. Yung lugar po namin, wala sa listahan ng mga LTE coverage(Yung list makikita mo sa mismong globe store) pwede rin po gamitan ng ibang sim basta globe.

    • arriana says:
