Globe claims to provide one of the cheapest data in Asia
Globe Telecom posted on their social media an insight about the current state of mobile data in the country in terms of pricing. Have you ever wondered how much are we paying compared to our neighboring countries?
According to Globe, postpaid and prepaid users of their network pays about Php 119.6 and 48.76 per GB, respectively. Making it the second cheapest in their, just next to India’s Airtel and Indonesia’s Telkomsel. Of course, there’s a fine print behind the computation — 4 points to exact:
- All prices are converted to PHP
- Rates cover 1GB – 2GB pricing for postpaid and 300MB – 1GB for prepaid, both inclusive of free content bundles
- Country rates based on published rate in other telco’s site
- Prices as of June 9, 2016
Upon checking GoSurf’s rates, the pricing above is not directly visible to the rates published but as indicated by Globe, the calculation already includes of the free content bundles for games and streaming app. Any thoughts about this?
