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?

Globe-Cheapestgb

Realme Philippines

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?

“And to the people shouting 700mhz, what is wrong with you? they used this tactics back when 4G was a thing and look at it now! still unreliable!”
@NotASheep
Name one Philippine telco who used/advertised the 700Mhz as a tactics BEFORE. As far as I know, no one deployed this even SMC themselves until a few days ago when Smart and Globe launched their first 700Mhz transceiver tower. And by the way, 4G network IS still a thing unless you are from the future where the thing is already 5G, LOL.

@MAMALOU, I think the tactic @NOTASHEEP was talking about is that the introduction of new technology (or frequency) will make the Internet by our telco be faster or better. If you guys can remember, LTE was touted to be the “savior” to our Internet woes but if you’ll notice, the advertised speed weren’t really sustained in a lot of places (in other words, unreliable at mabagal pa rin kahit na naka-LTE ka na)

This is actually biased, Hong Kong’s minimum wage is 32$ per HOUR so multiply to standard working days, that’s 7604 pesos per WEEK. While the Philippines earn 480 pesos per DAY that’s only 2400 per WEEK.

Basically Globe is more expensive by 110% than Hong Kong.

And to the people shouting 700mhz, what is wrong with you? they used this tactics back when 4G was a thing and look at it now! still unreliable!

BS! I-factor mo nga ang standard of living ng bawat bansa sa table. Ang average salary sa Singapore is 3500 SGD, while dito sa atin is only roughly 20,000 PHP. Come on Globe! Anong tingin nyo sa mga subscribers nyo?

It is much cheaper sa Globe pag naka-prepaid ka. By using GOTSCOMBODD70, you can have 1GB data and 1000 free texts to Globe and TM for a week. Yun nga lang you need to check your GOSAKTO balance from time to time. Hindi ko nga maintindihan yun logic ng pag POstpaid ka mas mahal singil nila sa internet usage ng subscribers.

Prepaid GOSAKTO – GOTSCOMBODD70 is cheap for 70pesos (1GB data) in a week. The problem of the mobile internet is that, it has no consistent connection. The speed fluctuates from time to time even though you are not moving from your area. Sometimes you get a high speed connection in a moment, then no connection at all, then back again to slow connection.

I’ve been in malaysia for 2 mos… Marami ang Telcos doon pero masasabi ko lang maganda service nila. Ginamit ko na provider doon is Umobile one thing na maganda doon monthly may free 1GB data na papasok sa number mo at khit free lang yun sobra bilis ng connection. I think meron pang ibang provider dun na nagbibigay ng 8Gb free every month if I’m not mistaken Hotlink ata ung provider.

It’s true that they are cheaper but what they really need to focus on is to improve their services and customer support. :)
