Globe SUPERSURF50 is Not Really Unlimited


Since my BayanDSL is down up to now and my SmartBRO USB stick is slower than dial-up, I opt to use my kuya's Globe Tattoo and it didn't disappoint me. It was fast and it was continuous unlike SmartBRO who keeps on disconnecting repeatedly. I will never recommend their service to anyone. It's super slow, it can't even load a single webpage and when you refresh the page it's either the page will display an error or it will display nothing. I think I need to write another post for that :)

Globe Tattoo on the other hand is excellent, they're so fast not just on midnight. It's even faster than my BayanDSL, considering that's already 'wired' and this one is wireless. They're the answer to my prayer! :] Someone told me that the speed depend on many things, like the numbers of household using the same service on your area, if there's a lot of people using it. it will be congested so the internet speed will be painstakingly slow. So it means only a few uses Globe Tattoo in my area, lucky me!

I haven't tried Sun Broadband Wireless here so I can only compare the ISP's I used and Globe Tattoo is a runaway winner here. But here's a major let down for their service, I received this message while surfing the net:

Number: 8888
Globe Advisory: Your account has reached 1GB in usage today. Subject to Globe Fair Use Policy, your internet service has been temporarily deactivated and will resume tomorrow. This promo is intended for moderate use. For heavy browsing, please upgrade to our Tattoo Postpaid plans. Thank you.


I already  read the same things on forum but I think back then, that not all Globe users will not be affected, only those who download a lot on torrents sites. But I don't do torrents, I actually don't know how to do it. From more than a week, I only received that message twice. When I'm watching movies online, not p0rn mind you LOL.

Well I think, Globe Telecoms should announced this changes, so users will not be surprised thinking what they're using is really unlimited.

  1. in my place, Globe Tattoo crawls... i'm using it now... but how it drags... SmartBro, on the other hand, which is what we're using at home, and Sun broadband are much better... :D In fairness to Globe though (despite my rants on their very slow connection), they did put that information out that the Supersurf50 is either 1Gb of usage or 24-hours of use, whichever comes first... Its a matter of reading the fine print...

  2. they still advertise it as UNLIMITED which is quite misleading and reading their FAQ page at http://tattoo.globe.com.ph/product/super-surf they didn't mentioned it :]

  4. Thanks for the heads up about this. I have a SmartBro stick and may want to switch to Tattoo when mobile. It is indeed misleading when they say unlimited when there is an actual 1GB limit. :(

    naexperience ko din yan. dati di naman ganon.. nakakapagdownload ako ng eps ng mga tv series at psp games, di napuputol.. tapos bigla na lang nagkaron ng limit, 1gb.. then, down to 800mb. i tried calling globe hotline when i first got the message.. ang sgot lang nila, may FAIR USE POLICY daw kase. kelan lang nila ininclude sa confirmation message yang policy kuno nila.. TSE!

  14. I had a globe tattoo before, but I was really frustrated to where I am at, I only had 2 to 3 bars and that it also keeps on eating my load. since I am a moderate user. The service was so lousy. I did try to do an open line to insert smart bro, however, it wasn't worth it. The best would still be a connection (as of today globe broadband is slow) yes, I am now using globe, still a globe product. Wish that I could try sun though. They say that its super fast... How true?

  15. SUN is fast.. but not in all areas. It fast here in Makati but it crawls when I'm in Valenzuela

  17. baka kasi may bago na silang tattoo stick. ung lumang tattoo stick hindi sya pwede sa SURFTXT60 which i think is unlimited surfing, so mapipilitan ang users magshift sa new tattoo stick.

  18. someone must sue against globe for false advertising
