Globe ramps up 1GB/day or 3GB/month Fair Usage Policy

Globe ramps up 1GB/day or 3GB/month Fair Usage Policy




Recently, Globe has been sending out reminders via SMS to some of their subscribers about the Fair Usage Policy that they are enforcing. A number of our readers have sent us reports about the daily bandwidth allocation and throttling regulation.

The FUP basically provides an allowance of 1GB per day or 3GB per month, whichever comes first. Once the allocation is used up, subscribers will moved to their 2G network. That means you still get “unlimited” mobile internet but it will be slower.


 

This FUP applies to all surfing promos and data plans for Globe postpaid and Tattoo Lifestyle Sticks.

It does not cover surfing charged with regular browsing rates (Php5/15 minutes) and those using PowerSurf.

This mechanism is designed to reduce the speeds of only the 3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic in Globe’s network.

You can read the full details of Globe’s Fair Use Policy here.

    Hope this will help in improving our connection.

    Walang kwenta talaga Globe. Useless rin mag unlidata plan kung sobrang bagal. Parang nag unli-dial up connection ka nito.

    “3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic ”
    only 1GB a day is Large volume? Thats just a few youtube videos a day!

    The average person is streaming video, streaming music, updating and downloading apps on smart phones/computer updates etc that far reaches over 1GB a day

    Globe should be ashamed, the government needs to step in and force regulate the telcos

    • Ryan says:

      my average usage is 5-7gb per month. im a heavy user always on LTE/H+. impact i have to charge my s4 for 2-3 times a day. exaggerated naman yung few youtube pra ubusin ang 1gb in a day. ok lang sken ung capping as long as bibilis ung serbisyo nla esp sa gabi na mabagal tlga.

    • Ryan says:

      pro sucker tlga yung 3gb per month.

    • meh says:

      @Ryan, nice try do you work for globe? Only 7GB a month?

      Average data used on a 1080p 5min youtube video is 62MB Thats for only 5 min! So a 1 hour movie a day, or a few hour movies, plus music, software updates , email attachments and more is far over 1GB a day.

      I rarely ever torrent and I average 250 to 300GB a month

    • Ryan says:

      not connected with them. 1080p will take yrs to load even on LTE. sabi nga ni phonebuddy ma tamang connection pra mag DL ng 1080p.

      So kung 250-300gb ka per month number 1 ka siguro sa 3% na abusado. Dpat nga lang icap ang mga tulad mo. or lipat ka nalng ng smart pra 1.5gb ka lang per month.

    • nil says:

      I think its fine although those who were used to streaming videos using their phones will greatly be affected. Again, what 3 gigs can do varies by use. 3 gigs of audio streaming is more than enough. 3 gigs of document sharing is too much. 3 gigs of downloading apps is just enough.

    • GTFO says:

      I use about 3GB to 5GB of data a night. I download a lot of stuff off the net not just for personal use but also for work related bullshit. I pay my fucking bills right in order use the “UNLIMITED” LTE connection. ABUSADO MUCH? I think not! People use it differently NOT JUST FOR THAT FACEBOOK shit. Now I know this retarded Telecom company is not for people who do serious work online. Target market yata nila mga OLOL. I’ll stay away from this provider after I’m done with my stupid contract.

    • knvz says:

      nag avail ako ng Globe Postpaid Plan na “Unlimited Data Plan” dahil “UNLIMITED” hind “LIMITED”. Pumirma ako ng contract dahil yun ang offer nila. Ano tayo bata pagkatapos utuin biglang babawiin? Grabe yan!

      at eto pa ha napakadaming naka subscribed na 4digit number sa number ko. 3rd Month ko na nalaman na may charge pala yon! nadale ako ng Club Content Subscription tapos bawal irefund hindi naman ako nagregister sa mga yon. at NAPAKADAMING nagtetext na house and lot, networking at narowrong sent na no., badtrip talagang globe yan!

    • PARA SA LAHAT NG MAPAG-PANGGAP NA TAO NG GLOBE DYAN. MAGKANO NILA BINILI ANG KALULUWA NYO?

      HARD EARNED MONEY NAMIN ANG PINAG UUSAPAN DITO. UNLIMITED NGA EH…

      PERO KAHIT ALAM NATIN NA NILOLOKO LANG TYO NG GLOBE, UNLIMITED PA DIN ANG PAGMAMAHAL NATIN SA KANILA. (FAIR USE POLICY: WE HATE GLOBE DURING HOLIDAYS, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, AND WEEKDAYS FROM 12:00AM TO 11:59PM)

  4. Rabitto29 says:

    anung kalokohan yan? naka-LTE ako tapos gagawing 2G yung postpaid connection ko? wth..

    • Diorarat says:

      Hindi ko pa nga na experienced lte ng globe e dahil sa limited coverage. At least mas mabilis h+ ng globe sa lte ng smart.

  5. phonebuddy says:

    tama lang..gamitin ng tama ang mga serbisyong “unli”. mobile yan so you’re not suppose to download 1080p movies on the go. may tamang internet connection para dyan. pero sana naman ay matupad ng globe ang promised speed nila.

    • crackinthewall says:

      Ano pang silbi ng LTE at 1080p screens ng phones namin kung hindi namin pwedeng gamitin to the fullest? In two years time, magkakaroon din for sure ng 4K screen sa phone. Masyadong mababa ang 3GB na monthly limit. Halos lahat nagiging cloud service na ngayon, streaming, photo/data backup, app updates, etc. so napakadaling ma-reach yung limit na yan. It doesn’t help na mas mabilis pa ang LTE ngayon sa average DSL connection. Dapat pag sinabi nilang unlimited, unlimited talaga or kung gusto nila ng may data cap, yung reasonable naman pati yung throttling ng speed. Hindi yung 2G agad. Kung hindi talaga kaya ng network nila na lagi na lang may upgrade, bucket pricing na lang gawin nila per GB.

    • knvz says:

      ikaw na nagsabing “unli”. kaya nga unli kasi unlimited. pano mo itatama ang pag gamit ng serbisyong “unlimited” kung “limitado”. may tamang internet connection para dun? kahit na 9999p pa yan kung unli pwedeng idownload. “UNLI” nga e!

  6. Kunsel says:

    Anong kalokohan na naman ng globe yan? “Blazing fast” daw ang LTE, ilang streamed videos lang yan tapos magiging GPRS/EDGE speed na ang phone mo? Hindi na sulit ang 999 unlisurf nila kung strictly enforced na yan.

  7. Diorarat says:

    Subscribed ako globe unli net at 600 a month Pero hindi ko pa na experienced yung 1gb cap. Nakapagdownload lang ako modern warfare recently at around 1.6gb in less than one hout tapos YouTube streaming after at hq quality na walang buffering at hspd lang.

  8. Samuel says:

    This doesn’t affect Prepaid users? 800MB a day is a riot.

    • Sinned says:

      hah! malamang hindi. dati wla nmn cap ang postpaid, sa prepaid lng meron (800MB/day).

    • DTech says:

      Better pa atang naka prepaid na lang pag ganyan. Pagtatawanan pa tayo ng mga prepaid user nyan pag nagkataon. Sana lumugar sila sa sitwasyon natin ng alam nila ng pakiramdam ng ngbabayad ng 1000 isang bwan para sa serbisyong ganyan.

  9. Sinned says:

    Average ko na un 3-5GB per month. wala pang 1GB per day or 3GB per month pero mabagal na net ko. pwde nila i-enforce to kung pareparehas signal strengh nila sa lahat ng sulok (kht ng metro manila) ng pinas para “Fair” talaga.

    Anyway 1.5GB lng nmn sa SMART per month (Unli Data Plan), beyond that, babagal na din.

    Sana lng meron paraan para malaman ang remaining GB per day or month na official record galing sa kanina, hnd yung galing sa 3rd party application or built-in sa phone, malaki kc ang difference.

    Ang Problema:
    pano ka maka-download ng Games na more than 1GB like Asphalth: Airbourne 8.

    Para lang yata to sa mga heavy user/downloader. Yung speed ng net dipende pa din sa lugar kung congested yung cellsite.

  12. Fuckthat says:

    All globe subscriber will shift na siguro hahahhahaa……kasi ganito policy nila…

    • Sinned says:

      1.5GB/month lng ang Smart. ask them
      sa Sun, good luck. unlimited pero limited lng ang speed.

    • crackinthewall says:

      Wala naman ding matinong lilipatan kasi may capping din sa Smart na mas mababa pa kung iimplement talaga nila. Yung Sun naman, mabilis lang between 1-6AM. Dati okay siya kahit anong oras, ngayon hindi ka na makapagbukas ng Youtube kahit 244p lang pag tanghali.

    • Sendo says:

      May freedom plan na ang smart. I just read it, it’s 1000 pesos no limit no data cap designed for the heavy user.

      Sarap lumipat.

  13. do it says:

    Do it! Mag shift sana karamihan para konti na lang matira at ng bumilis na service nila lalo na sa gabi. Mag shift kayo sa smart para 1.5 gig lang, usap pagong na hahaha

  14. haha says:

    para saan pa’t nagyayabang sila ng LTE at iba kung ililimit lang din nila, kalokohan!!!

  15. What says:

    That’s why its called unlimited because you have the freewill to browse and the reason we get LTE is because of the speed. I think it’s unreasonable if they are going to downgrade the connection. It means that the LTE is not reliable and not stable enough to handle the traffic. Might as well not offer LTE if you can’t give your customers what is due to them. It’s not called LTE, it’s called a rip off. It’s like getting an expensive Nike shoes with the quality of a replica.

    • crackinthewall says:

      No, it’s like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street. :p

      Okay lang naman na may cap kaso dapat dun lang sa totoong heavy user lang. Hindi pa naman considered na heavy user ang 10GB considering kaya siyang ma-reach ng walang torrent o r anything related sa piracy so paano pa kaya yung 3GB lang. Legit use lang, ubos na yung 10GB, kulang pa.

  16. kalokohan says:

    Para daw sa mas magandang serbisyo! Bakit kailangan subcriber ang mag adjust para sa network capacity ng GLOBOBO. Dapat sila ang mag upgrade para mapabilis at tumaas ang speed ng data services nila. Kaya nga nag unli data plan dahil free LTE at uncapped daw. Pero bakit biglang 3gb? Legal ba ito?

  17. Kalokohan says:

    Mas ok pa sa Smart kahit 1.5g limit / month throttled lang to 3G speeds. Unlike Globe, magiging 2g speed haha :)) Pero teka, may naka experience ma ba talaga dito ng throttled connection ng Globe? Panakot lang yata yan e lol :)) ma try nga hehe

  18. 'em says:

    I normally consume at least 1GB per day because I work from home. So 3 days lang ako makakapagtrabaho ng maayos tapos yung 17 days wala ng kwenta. Ang masakit, I have to pay, without delay, 1150php a month for that!!!

  19. hays says:

    goodluck na lang sa globe.. yan na number 1 reason bakit maraming nag subscribe sa inyo.. di mas ok pa si smart… atleast dun pag naka LTE ka.. pag naabot mo na yung 1.5gig.. magiging 3g speed ka na lang which is much better..

    • Yusuf says:

      Fortunately, Smart’s FUP doesn’t apply on their prepaid users. I’ve downloaded 150 GB in just a day.

  20. Yun Lang says:

    Ahaha! News today is that Korea is on their drawing board for the 5G connection that can download 800mb HD movie in 1 second, pero dito sa Pinas, anong nangyayari na? Yan ang effect ng duopoly eh!

  21. Doc says:

    I am smart user and a heavy user. I just downloaded attack on titan (2g) and justice league war (3.5g) yesterday, without any problem. Siguro nga binaba lang nila from LTE to 3g lang.

  22. simultaneous says:

    ung mga nagrereklamo zila ung mga abusado.. hehehe

    pero i would suggest sa globe n they should put different capping in different plan..

  23. GlobeThrotter says:

    “It does not cover surfing charged with regular browsing rates (Php5/15 minutes)”

    buti na lang. wag kasi mag pumilit kung bitin sa budget.

  24. bobby says:

    Naka-Smart ako, kaya hindi ko masyadong gets itong policy ng Globe. Meron cap na 1GB/day or 3GB/month para sa postpaid users, pero it DOES NOT COVER regular browsing rates. So you mean sa Globe, naka-postpaid ka and yet you’ll subscribe pa sa promos? Aren’t promos supposedly for prepaid users?

    • crackinthewall says:

      Ano pang silbi ng postpaid kung wala din namang advantage over prepaid? Sa prepaid, I can still keep my old number basta hindi totally mag-expire ang load. Free phones? Depende sa phone na gusto mo, madalas mas okay pa din bumili ng unlocked phones tapos prepaid na lang.

      Promos are for all subscribers pero ang nangyayari, madalas puro sa prepaid ang promos. Sa totoo lang dapat mas madami silang promos for postpaid subscribers kasi, kami, monthly magbabayad at sisingilin. Minsan pa nga, sobrang shocking ng bill sa Globe. E ang prepaid? Pwedeng lumipat at any time to Smart ng walang termination fee. Buti nga ngayon, may bundles na ang Smart at Globe na available for postpaid users kasi kahit papaano, nasusulit yung bayad namin.

  25. Yusuf says:

    Never ever will I use a Globe sim again. Smart, ’till death do us part.

  26. Kung gagamit ba ako ng Smart LTE Sim na prepaid tapos paregister ng 50 na LTE, may cap ba? if merong cap, magtotally disconnected na ba ako kung nareach na ung limit? or bababa lng s 2G?

    same din ba sa globe?

  27. entoyini says:

    Mas ok pa to kesa sa SMART FUP for Smartbro Wimax and Canopy 15gb/ month and the reset is every month. Sana gawan din ng article ni yuga. https://www.change.org/petitions/no-to-smart-pldt-fair-use-policy-trash-the-fair-use-policy

  28. Yusuf says:

    FYI on postpaid, Globe has a cap of 3 GB whilst Smart has 1.5 GB. On Globe, you’re downgraded to 2G SPEEDS. On Smart, you can still have HSPA+. About prepaid on the other hand, Globe has a cap of 800 MB/day whilst Smart does NOT (unlimited LTE, that is). After reading this, I think you’ve decided who’s the better choice. Live more.

  29. abuzalzal says:

    YIIKES! hindi ako mabubuhay sa 1 GB / day lmao,

    Isang 720p YIFY movie lang yan ubos na, wala ka ng balanseng pang browse

    GLOBE suxx to the core !!!

  30. tin says:

    fyi. Smart LTE (prepaid) does not have quota/fair usage policy [50/day] and more STABLE,STRONG connection :)

  31. kingzyke says:

    I kinda understand the 1gb per day but 3gb in a month?! Thats crazy! Hope smart takes advantage of this and not follow suit to attract customers.

  32. First Knight says:

    Im a Globe Postpaid subscriber with Unlidata as combo. Pansin ko lang na mas mabagal ung internet ko nung lumipat ako sa Iphone 5s kumpara dun sa Note 2 ko considering na LTE pa yung Iphone 5s? San kaya yung problem? sa Phone or sa Net?

    Thank you in advance.

    • xer says:

      I would say it’s the phone. Iphone is more on network hungry than androids. My officemate has the same problem. GS4 vs. Iphone 5, both on globe network @ the same location (4g location). I can multitask and do a lot of online stuff, surf, stream, download stuff while he is trying to pull up a youtube video.

      This might be with the phone, yet again it can also be with the network. But you can take into consideration the phones cores, you are comparing a dual core(Iphone 5s) to a quad core (note 2)even with just a 3g connection it will outperform the Iphone. Android phones (most of them) can perform better since they go through a lot of innovations, just check out Samsung’s number of models for just one line or series of phone. I can say for sure that my phone works very well even if I have just 2 bars of signal on LTE than with an Iphone that has full bar on LTE.

      80% it’s the phone, 20 % other stuff

      About the topic, Yes Globe suxx, it’s not called Unlimited if there is a cap, they should change their plan to “LIMITED”

  33. tigerlook says:

    Buti nga para hindi umabuso mga abusado?may pldt fibr naman ako sa house doon nalang ako mag download ng big files

  34. Jae says:

    3Gig A month?? WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? Business suicide? So much for UnliData bullshitz!

  35. Jasonwilliams says:

    Yuga, please tell me na typo lang ang 3gb per month. I can live with 1gb per day, pero 3gb per month?? Kulang ata ng 0 dun sa 3

  36. pati ba yan sa prepaid?

  37. John says:

    I’m smart postpaid subscriber… I just availed my retention plan last Jan 21 and I upgraded my plan from unlidata plan 1500 to All in plan 1800. Currently I subscribe to LTE unli 995 and for the past 4 days I already consumed 2.24 Gig And I haven’t experiencing throttling down to 3G. And when I renewed my contract with smart I did not sign document regarding FUP unlike when I first sign my unli data plan 1500 (this is 3g) two years ago, they apply FUP with limit of 1.5 gig per month. But now I did not sign any agreement for monthly usage limit.

  38. fyi says:

    Isa lang masasabi ko, FUCK YOU GLOBE!!! PANGIT NA NG SERVICE NYO LALAGYAN PA NG CAP NA ANG LIIT TINGNAN NYO YUNG SMART.!!!!

  39. knvz says:

    di makatarungan yan! kaya nga nag avail kami ng Globe Postpaid Plan na “UNLIMITED DATA PLAN” ay para unlimited tapos lilimitahan nila. Yung limited 1GB per day masakit na para saming heavy user paano pa yung limited 3GB lang a month. Badtrip kapag 2G at yung Edge para kang nasa bundok naghahap ng pwesto na may signal. di sa abuso, sinusulit lang namin at nagbabayad din kami buwanan.

  40. Platipus says:

    Applicable ba eto sa lahat ng plan o sa selected plans lang?

  41. Jojolemuelreal says:

    I both have unlidata subscriptions from both network (plan 999 with Globe and Unlidata 2000 sa Smart ) and basing from this, I have come to know the ff facts.

    1.GLOBE HAS 800MB DATA CAP PERDAY WHILE SMART HAS 1.5 GB PERMONTH. YUGA ARE YOU SURE GLOBE CAPS 3GB PER DAY ? did you really do your research on this.?
    Both network dowgrades your speed once you reach this.
    PERO ITO ANG KAIBAHAN. sa GLOBE EVERYDAY PAG NAHIT MO LIMIT THE FF DAY OK NA. SA SMART NAMAN DISADVANTAGE SA USER KASI EX 3 DAYS P LNG UBOS MO NA 1.5Gb NEXT MONTH NA YAN MAGIGING FULL THROTTLE.

    Andaming comment ng comment ng walang basis.
    LITTLE KNOWLEDGE IS DANGEROUS.
    DONT BE BIASED. BE FACTUAL.

    • Jojolemuelreal says:

      I have made an erroneous statement.
      *YUGA ARE YOU SURE GLOBE CAPS DATA TO 3GB* PER MONTH po dapat.

    • DVYLL says:

      I agree. We know there may be problems with the service but sana make sure to show both sides of the coin. Responsible blogging please.

    • Sendo says:

      I’m one of the people that got the message and I checked the website.

      it is 1gb a day and/or 3 gb a month

      then you get bumped to 2G speed

      problem is the link has been taken down.I’m not sure why.

  42. Kalokohan says:

    Kalokohan, define Unlimited… Globe you suck!

  43. Benchmark says:

    I seldom use data connection…but tama lang naman ata na sabihin nila na unli internet ka, but it didn’t say unli fast speed ka (or baka meron sinabing unli LTE…I don’t know) You still have connection yun lang kukupad lang, then kinabukasan ok na ulit. Hinde ba ganun?

  44. Yeohan says:

    I tried to open the link but page not found.. Seems Globe had already removed it.. Haha

  45. DVYLL says:

    Dear Yugatech, please clarify where you saw the “3GB/month” data cap. This might be misleading a lot of your readers here. I’ve been reading up on Globe’s FUP (wap.globe.com.ph/fairusepolicyfaqs) and Smart’s FUP (Google: SMART Fair Use Policy) and could not find your stated “3GB/month Fair Usage Policy.”

    Also, it might be worth mentioning in your blog that for both Globe and Smart, the ‘unlimited’ pertains to ‘mobile browsing’ and not to ‘unlimited download’ – because that is a totally different story and Both companies are getting flak for the FUP, which was really imposed by the NTC. I ask you to please add more clarity to differentiate this on your blog post and avoid misleading our fellow mobile data consumers.

    • kuya`dan says:

      TRUE! it is totally different to say unli browsing to unli download…

      I’m a globe subscriber for 2 yrs.. and now my area upgraded to LTE na. I can download for 1-2 movies a day even before the notification until now. hmmm… or maybe it is not yet imposed to my account hahahah o well..

    • Sendo says:

      It has been removed. I was able to access the website the day I received the message and it really showed the 3gb/month limit.

      I know wimax 512kpbs (795 php) is 1gb a day, 15gb a month
      and wimax 1mbps (995 php) is 3gb a day, 25 gb a month

      Don’t bother with their DSL. Ironically it’s prone to signal disturbances than Wimax.

  46. zoul1380 says:

    para san pa ang mga unlimited plan..

  47. Mang Ano says:

    UNLIMITED does not mean UNREASONABLE.

  48. bokoi says:

    Lipat na kayo sa smart para bibilis si globe namin. Dun na kayo download ng mga torrents nyo. Ubusin nyo BW ni smart para kayo kayo rin magkaproblema kung bumagal. Hahaha.pero wag na babalik sa globe para kaunti lg kami regular users na mag eenjoy ng mabilis na internet.

  49. daniel says:

    Smart will always be faster than Globe. Smart many sites scattered all over the country, they even have a list of HSPA and LTE sites at their website.

    Globe doesn’t provide such information to the public. Globe is not present in other parts of the country. No signal in the farms of Bicol.

  50. vince says:

    Globe may be having second thoughts on implementing this based on the initial response. Also the URL is inaccessible. HAHA!

    “Oooops!

    Looks like the page you are trying to view does not exist; it may have been removed from the site, or perhaps you mistyped the URL.
    You can try checking the navigation bar above or the links below to find what you’re searching for. “

    • Sendo says:

      Once I got the message I spent like 2 hours berating them on it. They can’t just put up that limit since when I signed the contract for my plan, there wasn’t anything that pertained to any FUP at all.

      I have a copy of my plan contract here and unless if they made a new contract and forged my signature, I’m not buying their BS.

      Furthermore, most android phones have DATA monitoring. Just with FB alone, you’ll hit 3GB in a week especially if you are fond of looking at the pictures of your friends.

      That’s not mentioning VoIP from Line, WeChat, Viber etc.

  51. Treng Velasco says:

    UNLIMITED surfing daw pero 1GB a day lang naman pla or 3GB per month.

  52. Jb says:

    Update: Bad link. The page was probably taken down.

  53. Bong Nabogbog says:

    ok na yan kesa sa smart kapag na over use yung sa data..block na agad nila forever..bili na nman bago sim card nila.

  54. Kobe67 says:

    sister company ng.globe ang optus(telco) sa austrlia.. pero ang optus hnd sinasabe na unli ang internet browsing.. un lang nga hanggang 3gb lng ang net sa mobile phones.. at wala ding unli sa australia dahil sa batas nilang fair go usage.. i dont know with globe if gagayahin nila un.. i think for pre paid lng ito.. sa post paid ba applicable ito??

    • Yusuf says:

      I’m sorry, I think you’re misguided. This cap ONLY applies to Globe postpaid accounts. Prepaid accounts, on the other hand, have 800 MB cap/day.

  56. Kevz Enicola Reyes says:

    Sana hindi eto permanent! now i get stressed again for slow internet :(

  57. Lare says:

    wala na talaga. download ka torrent 1-2 kb na lang. shet!

    • jherwynne says:

      yup..ako din, napansin ko bumagal ang Torrent ko unlike previous month. Pag speedtest naman humahataw ng 7.2Mbps.

  58. LorraineMaGe says:

    wala na buLok na net nila .. october kami nag subscribe for lte unli browsing tapos mgkakaganito lng naman pala.. useless ung payment namin. nd sulit ang 999 per month with a total of 30gb pr month 1gb per day lokohan lng… i boycot na yan

  59. Ric says:

    Did Globe get 3% of all its mobile users? To me, what they should do is only get the usage data of its subscribers on an unlimited data plan because this is a group where you can get a better gauge of how much data should be allocated daily and monthly. You dont really expect people who are not on an unli data to consume too much bandwidth. I think Globe is trying to mislead us here…

  60. Rob says:

    Question:

    In Android, diba we can choose our network mode? WCDMA, GSM only or Both.

    Will it help if I only choose WCDMA? Para makuha ko lang ang H/H+ signal

  61. Erson says:

    Posted on Globe’s Acceptable Terms on Fair Use FAQ’s:

    “Q: What is your threshold? How do you define normal usage?

    A: Sorry, but we cannot reveal the set of thresholds. What we can only tell is that this varies depending on the overall usage and may change without prior notice. Our system initiates the monitoring and as soon as it detects that your usage is significantly higher than the normal terms of use, it will trigger promo deactivation.”

    How do you expect us to cooperate when you hold even this basic info?

    Is this based on signal coverage per area?
    If so, make the information available on your site please.

    “Normal use” is just too arbitrary.

    This prevents consumers to make an informed decision.

    Puro tuloy question mark sa ulo ang mga tao dito :)

    Anyway, my only complaint is that 3GB/month is way too low. That’s 3GB for 1000 bucks??

    10-15GB at least in my opinion should be fair enough for a 999 plan.

    • jherwynne says:

      Parang wi-tribe lang ha….

      I agree on this one. I don’t exceed usage of 15gb per month. Pero 3gb is too low for a 999/mo charge.

      pati daly cap nila is very inconvenient. i don’t use my mobile internet often, first time in 2 weeks i’ll be using it to download an important installer file and i got blocked because of exceeding the daily cap. imagine, 1.4gb lang for 2 weeks and i’m blocked from using. hindi nga slow eh, kundi talagang walang internet at all. is that considered heavy usage? i don’t think so. gawin nilang monthly ang cap. or babaan nila singil. i don’t like to pay 999 for a 3gb plan. hindi naman slow e, kundi totally walang internet.

      this in very unfair to their postpaid users.

      nakakainis ang globe. nakakwala ng loob. nagsisisi ako i just got my new 1799/mo plan.

    False advertising si Globe in a way. Sinasabi e “UNLIMITED” and then limits your data usage to 1gb/day or 3gb/month.

    They’re exploiting/abusing the use of the word UNLIMITED with BROWSING to get customers. Indeed, kung browsing lang, you’re less likely to use 1gb in a day, lalung lalo sa mobile devices. That means check mail, fb, upload/download a few photos, little to no video streaming, etc.

    Fair Use Policy is okay, as long as they have given us a choice, or have informed us, before even subscribing.

    Dear Globe

    I regret to inform you #globe, that after the long years we’ve been together since year 2000, I must leave you now.

    I was a prepaid subscriber before, using your 1day unlimted internet for 50 pesos. Until I discovered that you have a daily cap of 800mb/day. This made me call 211 (your customer service) and made me verify on your globe store. They told me that it was true, you have your 800mb capping per day for prepaid subscribers, that’s why I should get a postpaid plan. And so stupid, that I did.

    Well you kept up to your promise, from January 2013, until yesterday, January 2014, I am able to download ISO’s, Microsoft Server and OS’es trials and other stuffs online, some even 6GB in size, which I can download in 3 hours or less, because your internet speed in Eastwood is very fast, considering it’s LTE. An average of 2.5 GB per day, or sometimes, I even reached 10GB one day. This is keeping up to your promise.

    But just today, early morning, you made me so frustrated, and messaged me that I just reached my 1GB cap for the day, and may try again the next day. So today, I can just crawl for 2G speed, which I beleive I don’t deserve.

    Well other networks do implement this Fair Use Policy, just like Wi-Tribe, but the only difference is, they never #cheated me, like you did #globe.

    “The only difference is, Wi-Tribe is upfront with this “FAIR USE POLICY” information at the onset. So for a discerning would be subscriber, the choice is his/hers if they want to subscribe to Wi-Tribe.”

    Before you even subscribe, they would actually tell you, that they have this cap.

    Unlike you guys. Im in a middle of my contract with you, you told me you had no cap, and suddenly you want to implement cap on my plan. At least respect the contract?

    Let’s say, an employee, who has been hired to do data entry earns 10k a month as agreed on the contract for those sets of responsibility, and got promoted to a supervisor position with additional duties. You think that employee, would just accept the job with no salary increase at all? This would look like a #onesided contract, the company has the right to add duties, but the employee does not.

    Imagine a student who is enrolled to a school, paying 30k per semester and is paying in installment for 10k per payment, and suddenly the school wanted to change the tuition fee. Would you think the existing student would agree?

    What I am pointing out is that, having this data cap is fair enough to implement, but atleast give your subscribers a choice. If when they subscribed to the plan with no cap limit, then atleast give them what they subscribed for. So implementing cap limit should not even be implemented to subscribers who were told that they don’t have cap limit.

    Cap limit should not be implemented to existing subscribers who were given the chance to get #unlimited internet with no cap, unless they re-contract, then it will be there choice, if they would still want to subscribe to the new policy.

    Your motto: Enjoy Globe Your Way!!!
    At least, live up to it.

    This policy of data capping of 1GB per day, 3GB per month for exisitng postpaid subscribers is clearly:

    #Cheating
    #Unfair
    #NoChoice
    #pandaraya
    #WalangIsangSalita
    #Joke
    #AreYouKidding
    #UnlimitedNaHindiUnlimited
    #UnlimitedNaLimited
    #OneSided

    If for postpaid, you get 1GB per day, or 3GB per month, then mag prepaid nlng ako, then I would have 800mb per day, 24GB per month. makes sense, right #globe??? So sa motto niyo #globe, ma-eenjoy pa nga ba namin?

    • Yep ako rin ganyan. Ang ganda ng speed ko dati. 10MBps pag gabi tapos 5-8MBps naman pag umaga, ang dali kong inaupdate mga laro ko sa steam, pero ngayon wala na. Yung iba pa namang dindadownload eh di pwedeng iresume kahit gumamit ng internet download manager. Sabi ng Globe, para daw sa mga nagdadownload ng illegal softwares yan at sa mga abusado sa paggamit ng internet, pero paano naman tayong mga legit na softwares ang dinadownload? Tsaka yung 3Gig per month, sobrang baba naman nun! Yung mga laro sa steam eh 10Gig pataas. Paano na kaya to. -.-

    amazing phillippines amazing globe.

  67. WSV says:

    3GB per month / 1GB per day (whichever comes first) does not make sense.

    3000 MB per month / 30 days = 100 MB per day???

    – 100MB = more or less 10 minutes of youtube videos (HD)
    – What if you need to download some installers, apps on your phone/tablet, photos, personal files, etc.?

  68. Adon says:

    Finally found this post just now. Lahat pala naka-experience, akala ko ako lang dahil hindi nakapagbayad ng bill. Pati Tattoo Myfi walang lusot. Sabi pa nila nung una hindi kasama yung Mobile Wifi nila sa FUP. False advertising indeed. I hope their taking down of the page means they are trying to reconsider the situation.

    PS: Who can suggest an alternative? Kulang ang 1GB para mapanood or madownload ang daily tv episodes na pinapanood ko. :(

  69. John says:

    May ganito ba ang smart? feeling ko globe lang which just proves gloe is such a weak company that it cannot cater to the needs or even wants(besides we pay them for it) of their consumers. such a shame!

  70. mark says:

    ang globe lalong tumatagal lalong nandadaya!!!
    plan 999 unlimited.. tapos 1gb per day! buti sana kung bumawas din ng babayaran kaso constant ang binabayaran. pero ang service hindi constant,.!! isip isip din globe di kami tanga!!

    “Globe is committed to providing you with fast and reliable mobile internet service. That’s why we’ve taken steps to implement an Fair Use Policy designed to reduce the speeds of only the 3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic on our network which greatly impacts the service we offer to other paying subscribers. These customers often have file-sharing software or peer-to-peer/torrent apps on their phones or tablets, and download large-format files such as music, videos and movies consistently.

    This means customers on an internet promo and plan who exceed 1 GB a day or 3 GB per month (whichever comes first) will experience browsing at 2G speeds.

    This policy allows us to maintain the quality of our mobile internet service and give all Globe customers a fair opportunity to enjoy our network.

    Our Fair Use Policy is aligned with the global industry practice of telecommunications providers anywhere in the world and is subject to change without prior notice.

    Our Fair Use Policy applies to all surfing promos and data plans for Globe postpaid and Tattoo Lifestyle Sticks, except PowerSurf. It also doesn’t cover surfing charged with regular browsing rates (P5/15 minutes).

    Mobile surfing offers from Globe are generally meant for emailing, browsing and search activities. Customers who frequently use file-sharing software or download large files are usually the ones affected by our policy. Media streaming and downloading of torrents also contribute to the excessive use of bandwidth capacity.”

  71. Rei says:

    Yan din sabi nila sa akin walang cap before. Ngayon meron na. Bulabugin ang globe 211 at business centers. Araw araw tawagan at puntahan. Bwisit na manloloko. Di ko sila tatantanan sa reclamo. Lahat ng policies nila from my contract hinihingi ko na. Kasi wala tau copy from the start. Di kasi natin akalain lolokohin tau ng globe. Bwisit

    “… terms and condition may change without prior notice.”

    yan ang panlaban ng Globe.

    Anybody know anyone who has actually initiated any formal complaint to the NTC?

  74. benedict says:

    They cut me off yesterday morning. One of my tablets was updating Injustice so I must have hit some limit. Although my phone said I was H+, Speedtest said I was getting 7kB/s. Im now on dial up? Also, the link to the FUP that I got via text is still up so I don’t think they are rethinking anything. Im tempted to spend the rest of the week trying to get to the 3GB limit to see what happens. Its 2 more days naman. But I think there is a chance I may make it to some “initial list of violators”. Will see.

  75. Y says:

    If they can make changes while on a contract dapat they gave an option to cancel the contract with no penalty.

    • sinned says:

      un ang problema, i ask them how much will i pay if i wish to cut my line, 18k+
      pag tinuloy ko nmn, ns 25k balance ko.

  76. Adon says:

    May nakapag-confirm na ba if totoo yung 3GB/month limit? I think I’m down to 50MB for the rest of the month na. I’m tempted to just be done with it.

    Fuck You Globe! 3 days ko lang nagamit ung 1k post paid ko! sobrang bagal! Paano yan naka 3GB nako? Isara ko muna business ko ng 27 days saka nalang ako magbukas next month? Wala kayong kwenta! Lilipat nako sa Smart bukas na bukas din!

  78. Magellan says:

    Guys please file a formal complaint to NTC, I’m pretty sure all the angry Globe users would support you. We need to unite against Globe’s greedy business practices.

  79. benedict says:

    gone are the days where I would update my apps using 4G even when I am at home with PLDT DSL. Sadly, Im stuck with them for 23 more months. Will only download torrents if really needed.

    Try setting your phones to HSDPA only. 4G is too fast and your background apps might eat up your bandwidth without knowing it. Google+ keeps backing up any picture I take. I changed it to back up only on wifi.

    I suggest using social media for this, similar to what happened to the guy/girl who was billed 3 million for data charges. However since Globe can simply say they are doing it for the 97% who don’t download torrents, I don’t think we can do anything about it.

    • Diorarat says:

      I still do that. Somehow someway I don’t think it’s strictly enforced. Just updated a massive injustice on hspd and my data is still kicking at 2mbps awhile ago. Total usage for the month is already topped at 6gb. But i don’t do torrent on mobile data.

  80. benedict says:

    I pity the person who just got his new iphone/android device on an unlimited plan, who starts installing all his/her favorite apps and games, only to hit the 1GB cap on the first day.

  81. James says:

    Good thing I’m done with Globe, even though they tried to negotiate me not to cut my line. I’m glad I persisted with my choice of going all out from Globe.

  82. Rikku says:

    I think 1GB / day is too strict. 3 – 5GB would been tolerable considering we have apps that as big as 1.5GB.

    I called Globe twice and it seems that it’s not supposed to be 3GB / month. Typo daw, it’s 30GB a month (well technically it’s 1GB / day so it makes sense, otherwise 3GB/month is very unfair ).

    Did anyone of you called Globe regarding this?

  83. Unhappy says:

    They advertise Unli LTE surfing but have a contradicting Fair Use Policy.

    How can still continue advertising Unli LTE surfing when they know it is not possible?

    Isn’t this against Consumer Act? They’re misleading consumers.

  84. dyame says:

    eto ung fair usage policy nila

    Globe is committed to providing you with fast and reliable mobile internet service. That’s why we’ve taken steps to implement an Fair Use Policy designed to reduce the speeds of only the 3% of users who are responsible for generating large volumes of traffic on our network which greatly impacts the service we offer to other paying subscribers.

    according sa FUP 3% percent daw affected… pero nung tumawag ako sa globe sabi lahat daw ng user na aabot ng 1GB per day magiging 2G ang speed ng network.. so parang 100% un ng user? kinausap ko ugn supervisor nila sabi ganun daw talga sabi ng nasa taas..

  85. nonA says:

    kung may 1gb limit di cge pero sana hindi nila binablock and ibang connections gaya ng p2p..let us use the 1gb limit the way we want to

  86. Bruce Dulay says:

    Dapat e- scrutinized ng globe telecom ‘yong fare usage policy prior to impose it, coz at this point they were breaching the contract which were signed to those subscribers availed the UNLIMITED INTERNET surfing. But now, it is called LIMITED INTERNET SURFING to 1GB only per day!

    And this is not a JUST doing! Hope the GLOBE TELECOM try to listen the CRIES of their SUBCRIBERS!

  87. nonA says:

    useless na pla ang wifi stick, pinagmamalaki nila na up to 10 devices tapos up to 21mbps ang max speed.. kung 10 kaming nakaconect at nag.iistream ,update o nag.download ng apps hindi aabot ng 30mins ang 1gb na yan..

  88. lare says:

    hey guys, did your download speed decrease in downloading torrents even in 3g?

    • globeSucks says:

      ako din hanggang 14kbps lng maximum speed ko sa torrents..anung nang yari sa globe?did globe also throttling the torrents?

    • nonA says:

      cguro nka block ang p2p connection gaya ng prepaid..kya nga tayo nag postpaid para hindi tayo madamay sa limits ng prepaid ganun padin pala,

    • torrentboy says:

      Kaya pala nagtataka ako kung bakit tig 10 kbps lang download ko sa torrent. Pero last week,mga jan 22, mabilis pa naman. Tang ina talaga ng globe!

  89. tama globe sucks, capped na din ang torrent sa globe up to 15 kilobytes/sec sa akin. not taken into account yung 1gb, kahit after na refresh na ang limit,………..

    ganyan din sa sun average din ng 15kbps (torrent cap)at may throttling din ang sun na around 600 kilobits /sec (dl=75kbps)pag lumampas ka ng 500mb, okay na din kaysa sa 2g ng globe na ang tagal ng loading kahit sa yahoo. …………

    home broadband, yung sa globe depende sa plan eg plan 1599 landline & internet upto 5mbps (ten gb/day allowance ,25% or 30% of the orig speed na lang if ma magamit yung 10gb at parang hindi capped ang torrent nakakaabot ng around 200 to 300kbps download, depende sa plan), sa pldt home dsl naman, wala daw capping ……

    smart pocket wifi, wala daw capping (general) pero ang torrent ay capped up to 25 kbps base sa experience . . . share lang po :)

    • lare says:

      yeah, before i was experiencing 800 to 1mb download speed but now it’s just disappointing. you pay 1000 a month and it’s just sad. i thought i was the only one experiencing torrent degrade.

  90. napi says:

    kala ko ako lng 12kbps ang torrent.. na cap na pala.. wala talagang kwenta tong globe.. patay ako dito.. 9gb+ na movie files di.na download ko.. ubos agad… may way na ma bypass to? download ko ngayon 150+ di ko alam if sa settings ko to or reset na cap limit ko.. by the way post paid gamit ko..

  91. abnox says:

    Ok guys we all know that 1 gb is not enough on a daily usage of mobile data,even ur registered to unli surfing u dont have to abuse it, sa mobile phone ginagawa nteng lahat or ninyong lahat ang pagdodownload ng malalaking files,ang mobile phone is for only txting,ordinary browsing ,gaming also but not online,if u want to download bigger files,play online games why not use pc or laptop with a connection of dsl or broadband,remember mobile phone is only mobile its not a pc that you can useit for heavy downloading,

    • nonA says:

      sa 1gb kasali na ang uploads, sana iba lang ung uploads,puro kasi up ang ginagawa ko ngayon e..wifi broadband stick unli postpaid gamit ko, kahit hindi ka heavy user kulang na kulang padin ang 1gb, kasi hangang 10 devices kaya ng wifi stick kung nka connect kaming lahat di aabot ng 30mins ang 1gb na yan..

    • baliw says:

      baliw ka ba? kaya nga may mga android phones tayo na hightech na halos pde mo na gawin lahat dahil sa apps, making them teach us to use our android phones is like teaching us how to run our lives, kitang kita nman na dapat tayo ang nag dedecide kung para saan ang phone na to at paano gagamitin hindi lang for FB and some bullshit, kung mag ffb ka lang sa phone mong malupit sana d ka na bumili ng phone na maganda mag qwerty phone ka nalang na me java para makapag install ka ng apps na pang mail etc. etc. at isa pa advertised nila ung UNLI LTE nila kuno na me cap pala amputa.

  92. napi says:

    applicable ba to sa globe tattoo na wifi dongle?

  93. nonA says:

    “Live without limits” daw…hahahaha…tawang tawa talaga ako ng nakita ko to..

  94. Andrew says:

    Napatawag ako sa Globe hotline dahil may na received akong text message na reach ko na ang 1G limit. Bwisit na bwisit ako sa sa patakaran nila. Dahil:

    1.Hindi yan yung service kung bakit ako nag avail ng postpaid plan which is unlimited

    2.Hindi ako nag globe para turuan kung ano lang ang pwede kong gawin sa paggamit ng internet; service ang binayran ko, hindi para diktahan kung ano pwede o hindi gawin.

    3.Kaya bumabagal dahil sobra na ang subscriber at patuloy parin sila sa pagpapa-subscribe sa mga tao. Ang Sistema nila ang problema, hindi kung paano o ilan ang gumagamit o kung saan ginagamit. Overcrowd na ang kanilang BANDWIDTH kaya mabagal.

    4.Ano ba yung mga ads nila sa TV, BILLBOARDS, ONLINE na—“LIVE WITHOUT LIMITS”, “UNLI SURF”, “ABOT MO ANG MUNDO”, “MAKING GREAT THINGS POSSIBLE”, at kung ano-ano pa? FALSE HOPE lang pala.

    5.POWER TRIP lang ang kanilang policy “FAIR USE POLICY”… dahil gusto lang nila ito. Hindi ibigsabihin TAMA sila. Hindi ABSOLUTE ang kanilang policy…na dapat itong masunod, lalo na, ipinapakita lamang nila ang kanilang KAHINAAN at ang nag suffer ang subscriber, habang pinagkakakitaan nila ito ng MILYON-MILYON. Mali nila, pero pinagkakakitaan pa nila ng husto.

    6.Hindi libre ang service. Kaya sila yumaman dahil sa mga consumer. Kung hindi dahil sa atin wala ang paglago nila…TAPOS ganito ang kanilang isusukli sa atin?

    7.Sulit ba sa pera ko ang ganitong policy? At nagbebenefit ba tayo dito? HINDI! Bakit nila pinapapapasan sa atin? Ang mahalaga kumita sila ng sandamakmak kahit naghihingalo na ang kanilang Sistema, tuloy parin ang expansion nila. Kahit puno na ang Barko wala silang pakiaalam kung overloaded o lulubog basta pasakay parin sila para kumita. Lumbog ang barko dahil maraming nakasakay o dahil nagpsakay sila ng nagpasakay?

    8.Wala bang limit ang pagpapa-subscribe nila sa tao? At pagkatapos tayo naman ang magdudusa kung crowded na ang system at sa atin ibabaling ang sisi.

    9.May kunsensya ba ang mga taong ito? Kahit malinaw na malinaw na agrabyado ang mga subscriber dito. Wala.

    10.Kung bumili ka ng isang kilong bigas dapat isang kilong bigas din ang makukuha mo. Kung kulang sa timbang o sa isang kilong nabili mo, ang kinalabasan ¼ nalang ito, ANO PA BA ANG MATATAWAG mo dito? Diba PANLOLOKO? Bakit hinahayaan lang ng gobyerno? Kaya nilang bayaran ang ilang mga tao sa gobyerno. Monopoliya ng malalaking TELCO. Ganito din ang kalakaran kung bakit tumitindi ang problema sa ating lipunan at walang hustisya sa mga mamamayan.

    11.Ang lagay, magpapaloko nalang ba tayo?

    12.Sana dapat 100 pesos per month nalang ang singil nila kung ganito ang service nila. At ito lang ang ibaibayad ko sa ganitong service…kahit kasuhan pa nila ako. Hindi ako magi-guilty sa kasalanang ginawa nila at ako ang magdudusa at palalabasahin pang mali. Hindi sila Diyos!

    13.Kakanselahin ko na ang contract kahit may ilang buwan pa bago matapos…hindi ako isang alipin na susundin ang bawat kalokohan nila. Sila ang nagpawalang bisa ng contract.

    14.Sa ganitong paraan. INAMIN narin nila ang kanilang kasalanan sa PAGMAMANIPULA ng internet speed— kaya kung bakit bumabagal ang speed natin, dahil sila pala ang gumagawa nito para mapunuan ang labis labis na mga pangangailangan. Sa huli TALO ang mga consumer.

    15.Dapat itawag sa policy nila ay “MAKING LOTS OF MONEY POLICY” at hindi “fair use policy”

    IMPLICATION:

    Sila ay mga WALANG HIYA (GLOBE); MANLOLOKO; ISANG IN YOUR FACE MODUS OPERANDI AT SCAM; WALANG MGA KONSENSYA; GANID SA PERA; PAMBUBULI sa mga consumer at subscriber ; SOBRANG DEHADO ANG MGA CONSUMER

    OUR RIGHTS:

    Ipakita natin na lesser value nalang din ang service nila at kaya hindi nararapat ang kanilang labis-labis na singil sa kulang-kulang na kanilang service na ibinenta sa atin.

  95. Used to be with Glob says:

    This is actually designed to prevent file sharing, torrent downloads, all of the intellectual property thing shiz….

    That’s why i keep my internet activities separate from my text/call activities…

    Kung lalabas ako ng bahay at may gustong i-download, i have a pc at home and let it download. besides, kaya nga ako lalabas eh para may gawin, meet up with friends o kasama ko family ko, which i don’t need internet.

    at home, pldt dsl doesn’t have any fup or capping, same with sky…

    and, wala sila pakialam sa post paid subscribers, kasi ang bulk ng customers at income nila, nasa pre-paid pa rin.

    • cagalli says:

      Hindi po ako kasing yaman parang kayo na may pc at dsl pa sa bahay…..cellphone lang ang budget ko….yun lang ang kaya ng sweldo ko…..

    Any Idea Sa inyo paano ma bypass tong cap sa torrent speed?P2p application natin prang sinakal sa liig ayaw maka makabanat malakas pa naman ang speed, pero useles kung di tau maka pag DL ng movie..kung intelectual property ang ina anaalagan nila at pra maka iwas sa piracy..di pa rin ma poksa yan sa paraang eto.lalong lalakas ang bintahan nga mga pirated DVD’s sa bangketa nito..

    • lare says:

      how fast is your download torrent speed? when i try speedtest it shows me 7.27 mbps but when in torrent download it’s just 10 – 15 kpbs.

    • nonA says:

      ok lang sana yung 1gb/day kung nagagamit natin ang full potential ng connection, ang problema binablock pa nila ang p2p connection, hindi naman lahat ng nasa p2p pirated, tsaka parang uselees nadin ang wifi stick ko na upto 10 devices daw at 21mbps ang max speed, ilang update lang ng mga apps at games sa mga devices ubos agad ang 1gb..kahit nga mag.upload lang ako ng mga files ko ang hina minsan 1kb/s lang..sayang lang yung binabayaran kong “unli”postpaid..

    • Random guy says:

      Just use port 80 for incoming connections in your torrent client and your speeds should go back to normal. Be wary of the 1gb limit though.

  97. Andrew says:

    (i wrote to jv ejercito fb, sulat din kayo guys sa inyong preferred public servant)

    Dear Senator JV EJERCITO ESTRADA,

    Sana gumawa ng batas na “CONSUMER QUALITY ONLINE USE ACT POLICY”… batas para mapanatili ang mga pangako ng mga Broadband companies sa kanilang mga subscriber o kalidad ng serbisyo at batas na maglilimit sa mga telco na hindi maging labis labis ang mga subscriber kung hindi na kaya ng kanilang bandwidth, sa ganito hindi magdusa ang mga subscriber sa mabagal na service. Nagbabayad ng sapat ang mga subscriber pero kulang na kulang ang service. Dehado masyado ang mga consumer. Labis na hindi makatarungan ang ginagawa ng mga Telco sa kanilang mga consumer. Nawa mabigyan nyo ng pansin ang panawagang ito.

    Maraming salamat po.

  98. nonA says:

    sana imbes na i cap nila ng 1gb, lagyan nalang ng 2-3mbps max speed connection lahat ng unli postpaid subscriber, para bumaba ang traffic dahil lahat pantay ang connection wala nang mag momonopolize ng bandwidth nila..ganitong paraan pweding matawag na “fair” lahat ng connection tapos talagang “unli” parin ang service..

  99. nonA says:

    giving 2-3mb max speed to all unlipostpaid subscriber, would utilize the word “fair” instead of 1gb cap..

  100. nonA says:

    instead of putting cap giving 2-3mb max speed would lessen traffic, no one would monopolize all the bandwidth, all unli postpaid subscriber would get the unli they deserve and thats what “fair” is..

  101. John David says:

    For postpaid internet subscribers, try to use Hide my mac address software it will avoid your ISP from reducing your internet speed. it will also refresh your internet if your reached its bandwidth limit.
