New Globe Tattoo Superstick goes up to 21Mbps
Looks like Globe has upgraded the speed of their Tattoo Superstick 4G to 21Mbps. Saw this ad last Monday on the newspaper for a new add-on or upgradable plan with the Tattoo 4G.
The promo goes like this:
When you get a regular Globe Tattoo Postpaid Plan 999, you pay a monthly service fee of Php999 a month. The promised speed here is up to 7.2Mbps.
You then get a free subscription to the online versions of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Yes!, Cosmo or FHM.
You now have the option to upgrade the Tattoo Stick to a Tattoo Superstick (the MyFi) for an additional Php150/month for 24 months. This allows you to share your WiFi to 5 devices at the same time. You still get up to 7.2Mbps here.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 12Mbps, just add Php100/month.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 15Mbps, just add Php150/month.
If you want to upgrade your speed to 21Mbps, just add Php200/month.
So, when you pick all the upgrades (i.e. Php999 for Stick + Php150 for Superstick upgrade + Php200 for 21Mbps upgrade), you’ll end up with a monthly service fee of Php1,349.
Not bad for a MyFi device with speeds of up to 21Mbps, right? Yes, it’s tempting.
Note though that Globe’s 4G label refers to their HSPA+ network so you’ll have to be within range of those towers in order to get the optimum speeds.
Also take note the lock-in period for this plan is 24 months.
