Subscribing to a new Globe Telecom postpaid plan today has never been complicated. Globe is trying to project that you are getting value for your money by making you go through their slow (and I mean slow and painful loading of their website) process of choosing the plan, gadget, combos, etc. The sad truth is — that is not the case.
If we are to simplify Globe’s postpaid plan and compare it to Smart Communications’, let’s take a look at the table below, assuming we are to get an iPhone 5 with 16GB capacity at both Plan 999:
|Device||iPhone5 16GB||iPhone5 16GB|
|Monthly MSF*||₱ 999||₱ 999|
|Cash Out*||₱ 19,200||₱ 19,000|
|Free Calls||nil||40 mins.|
|Free SMS||nil||100 texts|
|Remaining Consumable*||₱ 101||nil|
* In Philippine Peso
Globe uses Peso Value as unit of measure to be allocated/amortized among the cost of the gadget (e.g., iPhone 5), combos, and consumables. Yet, it appears (from the table above) that you really are not getting value for your peso.
