In the past, the said internet access promo can be consumed with no limit (as it is called unlimited), no data capping nor no download limit. Then Globe Telecoms introduced what’s called Globe FUP or Globe Fair Use Policy and rolled out to all of its subscribers.
What this policy does is that when a certain consumer reaches and exceeds 800MB of data in a day (Prepaid customers) then he will start experiencing slow browsing. Globe will automatically adjust the download speed to a much lower rate. Their reason is to maintain the quality of their mobile internet service so that they can provide all Globe customers a fair oppurtunity and enjoy while using their service. In short, to give their subscribers a more reliable and faster mobile internet service.
Here’s what it says from their website:
Globe’s Fair Use Policy
- Allows us to maintain the quality of our mobile internet service and give all Globe customers a fair opportunity to enjoy our network
- Is aligned with the global industry practice of telecommunications providers anywhere in the world and is subject to change without prior notice
- Applies to all surfing promos and internet plans for Globe Postpaid and Tattoo Postpaid, except GoSURF and PowerSurf. It also doesn’t cover surfing charged with regular browsing rates (P5/15 minutes)
