Good news to all Globe Subscribers. Globe launches its new mobile internet browsing rates today. Similar to Smart’s mobile internet charging scheme, Globe will charge its users P5 for every 15 minute use of GPRS, 3G or HSDPA.
Globe gives its users two options on how internet rates will be charged. First option is the KB charging wherein users are charged P 0.15 for every kilobyte transfer made. This option is best suited for info-based browsing such as movie scheds, dictionary service, sport statistics and the like.
The second option, the new one, is a time-based charging. Users will be charged depending on how long they used the mobile internet services. Users are charged P 5.00 for 15 minutes. This service is best suited for users who use their mobile phones, PDAs, or 3G/HSDPA devices to surf for multimedia content.
Thankfully surfing the web on your phone is way easier than catching the perfect wave and hanging ten. Globe Prepaid and Postpaid subscribers are by default on the KB Charging scheme. If you want to try out Globe’s new TIME charging scheme, all you need to do is to text TIME to 1111 for free!
