Globe Mobile Internet New Pricing



Globe Telecom recently introduced the new pricing for their mobile internet. Globe subscribers can now choose from 15 centavos per Kilobyte or 5 pesos per 15 minutes internet browsing. I think Globe Telecom realized that it’s very uncompetitive to charge 15 centavos per Kilobyte since their rival network, SMART Communications are charging 10 pesos for 30 minutes internet browsing.

Since I loved to be wired most of the time, I had tried connecting to SMART using a SMART SIM. I even bought a SIM card since Globe charges a lot before. Just this week, I tried connecting to the internet using my Globe SIM. Of course, I called first Globe Telecom’s customer service for instructions since it’s my first time for Globe. By the way if you want to avail the 5 pesos per 15 minutes browsing, you need to send the message TIME to 1111 for free. You will receive a text confirmation within 1 hour. To revert back to the 15 centavos per Kilobyte browsing, just text KB to 1111 for free.

Before you can start connecting to the internet, you need to check the APN setting. APN should be set to http.globe.com.ph. The dial up number for Sony Ericsson is *99***1# and just leave the username and password blank.

What can I say about Globe’s internet browsing? Compared to SMART, it is faster. The only sad thing is that I still cannot connect on either Yahoo Messenger or Chikka. Maybe it is because I am not using a 3G phone.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
