Having a reliable and affordable internet service has been one of major challenges of a freelancer. We may have quite a number of players in the internet industry however, there is a still a monopoly in terms of availability in a certain area. In my case, we only have Globe DSL available in our barangay.
With the recent calls of the government and the public for a faster internet service, I am happy to share that finally, these calls did not fall unto deaf ears.
For the past 15 months, we had Plan 1299 with Globe that comes with a download speed of 3 Mbps. This plan comes with a 50 GB monthly data allowance which is not sufficient for my needs.
Now, we are able to upgrade the speed of our DSL plan to 10 MBPS with a 100GB data cap for the same price.
This offer from Globe still comes with the free landline with unlimited calls to Globe and TM. It also comes with Free 6 months access to HOOQ and Netflix (which you have to call to cancel if you don't want to be charged.)
The only disadvantage is that your contract will be renewed for another 24 months if you request for these speed upgrade. Other speed upgrades are also available for Plan 1599 and up.
If you are interested, you just have to call the hotline 02-7301000 to request for the change. They say that it would take 3-5 days to make the changes but it actually took us 3 weeks to have this processed.
