Globe breaks silence, explains Fair Usage Policy

It seems Globe is the only one actively defending the telco’s Fair Usage Policy. In a recent release they sent out via Twitter, they explained the FUP in a nice little infographic.

Here’s the entire picture of what the whole throttling and daily bandwidth allowance works.

Globe Fup • Globe Breaks Silence, Explains Fair Usage Policy

They’ve also pointed out that less than 3% of their subscribers do exceed the 1GB per day or the 3GB per month allocation.

The controversy broke out last week when Globe started actively enforcing their Fair Usage Policy, sending out text messages to heavy users informing them of the measures implemented once they reach the daily and monthly allocation.

It seems Globe is trying to wean the 3% of their subscribers out of their network. The strategy is to endure all the pain with restricting all those 3% of their subscriber base (and the huge possibility of losing them to a competing network), rather than wait for the others to enforce the same on a later date. It’s either now or later and Globe decided to take the heat first and get it over with.

Last week, we noted that both Globe and Smart have their ow versions of the FUP. Globe has 3GB stated on print while Smart has 1.5GB cap stated in their FUP. You can read more about it here.

The more I read it, the more I think of it like a propaganda lol! It’s more of telling you what you have to do rather than giving you what you need.

Firstly, they play with words. True that you are still unlimited after reaching your daily/monthly allowance. But they slow down your speed to the point that posting just words in fb will take a minute or so.

Also, the information they wrote is not complete. Sige 23k+ email ang kaya ng 3GB per month. But have they look into the push notif part? Background activity? Most likely, it is based on all text emails lang. And I am just referring to email app alone. Wala pa yung iba. Malamang meron na rin sa inyo na napilitan mag top up kahit naka-postpaid, para lang matustusan ang mga deliverables for the day. Dahil ramdam nyo na kulang talaga.

It is obvious that they only write information that will make it look too much. But they chose to omit those details that will really make the entire picture clear.

SO FAIR DIN KAYA SA KANILA KUNG NAKAEXCEED KA SA CAP NILA AT IBABA NILA SPEED MO, DAPAT DIN KAYA BAWASAN DIN NILA ANG BABAYAD NG CONSUMER?!!!
KUNG ANG NAKASAAD SA CONTRACT MO SA KANILA AY DI NILA NAIBIBIGAY SAYO DAPAT LANG SIGURO DI NILA SINGILIN ANG CONSUMER DIBA. DAPAT PA NGA KASUHAN SILA.

Dont tell us that the “less than 3%” has affected the bandwidth allocation for the other 97% that you need to enforce the FUP? And also you marketed the hspa+ as 4g tricking customers into thinking it is 4g lte.
