The Unexpected Globe Tattoo 800MB Data Limit

...

I have the feeling that Globe Tattoo SuperSurf promos are not real unlimited internet. For example, SuperSurf50 unlimited for one day is capped to a certain point. I never know what is the cap limit though. As experience of proof, I am experiencing sudden slow down after watching few YouTube videos. This incidence happens very often.

It is Thursday today. My SuperSurf200 subscription will last until tomorrow, Friday – no office work so I would like to maximize the remaining hours. I have real good land-line connection at home – this surely is useless.

While surfing, I downloaded YouTube music videos one after another. After getting about 15 mp4 videos, a series of messages from 8888 arrived. They are reminding me that I have already used 800MB. I can still use the remaining surfing hours tomorrow subject to acceptable user policy.  My connection was not cut but I wasn’t able to surf any web page. I felt disgusted. I was rushing to finish my school assignment so I can move to other real money work.

Here is the full message copy.

  1. yes i already experienced that 800mb limit,i think supersurf is not unlimited,money is wasted when using supersurf.because you cannot download movies.and the hours remaining is wasted.

  2. bakit sa akin iba ang message ko? gamit ko po 4G Tattoo Wifi Pocket. Ang sabi sa message “You have breached the Globe fair use policy of data usage. In order to maintain quality service among other subscribers, your speed will be throttled to 2G speeds.”

  4. Kung dati ang Globe pinuputol talaga nila ang connection mo if you reached 800mb na limit at magreresume after 24hrs. Sayang lang at 1day na wala kang internet connection. Lately iniba nila imbis na putulin ang connection ay pinahina lang nila ang pagsagap mo ng connectiong imbis na 3g naging 2g na which is bumagal ang browsing mo. Maybe mas mabuti na eto kasi kahapon ko lng eto na experience same as kay @gawking ewan ko lng after 24 hours babalik sa dati kasi wala naman sa message siguro hanggang matapos na ang subscription ko. Sayang naman 2day ko palang nito :(

  5. Yeah parehas lang din tayu guys… para sa akin mas pangit na yung style nila ngayun na imbis putulin, pinahina nila yung speed ng connection. Because yung speed po ay babalik lang within 24 hours so kailangan mo pang maghintay ng 24 hours bago bumalik yung 3g connection mo …which is not good to wait too long. Mas mabuti pa yung dati kung umabot ka na ng 800 MB maximum madali lang mag reset .. antay ka lang ng ilang oras mag rereset na .. in this way alam mo naman na maximum is 800 MB so kung magdodownload ka dapat i budget mo yung 800MB on the time na malapit sa resetting time .. so ang dali lang babalik na agad yung speed ng connection mo.. da bali ng maputol keysa maghintay ka pa ng 24 hours para bumalik yung dating speed mo… ang bagal naman yang 2g which is very hussle in browsing..

  6. BUMABALIK PO ANG BILIS NG INTERNET PAGSAPIT NG 12 MIDNIGHT PERO KAILANGAN PO HINDI GINAGAMIT ANG BROADBAND BAGO SUMAPIT ANG 12 PARA MABALIK SA 3G

  7. yeah, ganyan talaga ang globe [lagi kong naeexperience yan ] once na umabot ng 50-100 mb ang torrent dL ko , ginagawa na nila akong 2G . andaya talaga ng globe XD

  8. Currently nka 2g speed ako ngayon dahil sa policy ng globe..I’m using tattoo wifi pocket din..
    kaka.register ko lang ng SUPERSURF999 kahapon tapos may na-receive agad ako na message from 8888 *same as mentioned above* sana lang bumalik nga sa normal speed after 24 hours.. -_-

    • bumalik naba ung speed ng pocket wifi mo?kasi same problem din tau..nagregister ako ng SUPERSURF999 tpos ganyan din nangyari skin,,eh mag 2days na mbgal pdin ang browsing ko..:(

    • I think hnd na babalik until matapos ung subscription…ang daya tlaga kasi unlimited naman…super bagal na ng connection ko…ni hindi na nga ako makaview ng photos sa fb..tsk…sayang..9 days palang ung nagagamit ko sa 1month subscription ko

  9. so fucking shit talaga ang globe, nakaka dissapoint at frustrate!!… sabi sa advertisent “UNLIMITED SURFING” – what the fuck? they are so SCAM.. pinapaniwala nila user nila pero di naman pala totoo na UNLIMITED which is LIMITED lang ang pag gamit ng SURF sa GLOBE!!

    hayst.. SA SMART BRO din ba may FAIR USE POLICY? X(( I want to shift INTERNET CONNECTION BTW!

  10. Same as me: i have also received that message. Which reminds me that i already breached the globe fair usage policy and the 800 mb maximum usage for the promo. Im just wondering why do they have to put a limit when they called it “UNLIMITED” Super wise si globe. Mabilis nga yung internet may limit naman. Disappointed ako sa globe sa ginagawa nila. Unfair sila sa lahat ng nag avail ng promo. Sana bago pa nila nilabas yung promo eh, naglagay na rin sila ng reminder na may limit lang yung usage. Paano na yung mga naka 3g at 4g? Baka di pa natatapos yung isang buong video sa youtube eh nareach na agad yung limit. Pakiayos naman service niyo globe telecom. Thanks in advance :/

  11. Guys, I understand this scenario… Regarding with the reaching of 800 MB, it will reset when 12 midnight strucks. Example, if you register it about 8 AM, and you’ve already consume the 800 MB, then you need to wait until 12 midnight to bring back the connection. And for me, it is necessary to have capped because there are many abussive users. This type of internet is not intended for heavy downloads of large files it is intended for surfing, video chat and browsing. I understand this because I am an Electronics Engineer and I understand how it is implemented. In USA they have a plan that has a capped of 2.5 GB that will cost $30 and here 800 MB a day. So, we must have in mind that there’s always a limitation.

  12. sa supersurf50 may data usage limit din.. pag nagtext na ang globe ng ganito “Hello! We noticed that your data usage today has been really high. We’re now reducing your browsing speed to maintain quality service for all Globe users. Please be guided by our acceptable terms on fair use for browsing promos, which you can read about at surf.globe.com.ph/fup. To browse at normal speeds, you can unsubscribe from your current promo by texting STOP to 8888. Regular browsing rates will apply thereafter. Thanks!

  13. The Supersurf50 is an Unlimited Surfing with a validity of 1 day, What’s the use of the word “unlimited” if it has a limit.? They should have called it “Limited Surfing”.

  14. same problem as above.. super slow connection after the message was sent to me by globe.. nakakainis talaga next week na major exam namin kaya kailangan ko ng magreview, tapos this happens to me.. paano na yan if hindi bumalik yung fast connection bukas,, im just watching youtube tutorial para mas maintindihan ko yung topic… [so frustrated]

  15. ano bang problema ng globe? bakit pinagkakait nila iyang bandwidth na kung tutuusin eh ang dapat nila atupagin ay magbigay ng malakas na signal at magtayo ng mga structure na makabigay ng mas malakas na signal, napakawalang hiya naman ng may ari ng globe, sobrang gahaman sa pera ang loko, darating ang araw na babagsak din yang company niyo, hindi niyo naman madadala yang pera niyo sa hukay, dapat niyong gawin ay paligayahin at ibigay ang gusto ng costumer niyo, bat pa kayo nagtayo ng ganyang negosyo kung di niyo kayang panindigan ang mga sinasabi niyo. di ba kayo natatakot na maraming tao ang nagaglit sa ginagawa niyo at marami kayong inagrabyado sa kasinungalingan niyo, pag ang kumpanya ay sinungaling kay satanas yan, pag kay satanas babagsak din yan at malulugi. pwe tae mo may ari ng globe. may karma karin at lahat ng sakit ng mundo matitikman mo bago ka mamatay pag hindi mo binago ang patakaran na yan, hindi ka ba matutuwa na makitang maraming matutuwa kung magbibigay ka ng mabuting serbisyo sa mga tao, dahil hindi naman nila yan hiningi yang serbesyo niyo, binili namin yan!

  16. Inaaway ko ang 4 na operator pina explain ko muna ano ung unlimited at limited 800mb then 2g connection. Specific dapat sila sa promo nila. I was playing my online game and suddenly I was cut off. What a waste of money. Buy smart not globe.

  17. wala bang limit sa smart ung unli nila c lipatan na tau…. haha kaasar na limit yan

    BBBRRrrrrrr

  18. tuwing madaling araw lang ako nakakapaginternet ng maayos, tas after almost 3 hours (12am-3am dhil ito ung oras n sobrang bilis ang internet) n pagbbasa ng manga aun nagtxt na si reducing your browsing speed..
    ganito ako everytime n magSUPERSURF50, lagi n lang “your data usage today has been really high.” wth! hindi p tlaga lumipas n nagregister ako ng hindi binabawasan ang browsing speed ko..

    regalo pa nman sakin ng tatay ko tong broadband na to kaya ayokong palitan..

  19. I also experienced the same thing. Globe always deceives us. Why do they have to call it unlimited surfing, well in fact it has a limit? I really don’t get it….I always register for unlimited surfing but globe keeps on sending me annoying messages which I think is indeed unfair to all subscribers. Pls do some actions about this problem. Maybe sooner or later, all your users won’t entertain any of your promos anymore.

  20. kaya nga.. mga ka globe.. mag lipatan na tayo.. ng malugi yang kumpanya nila.. tayo nilulugi nila e. ang ganda pa ng patalastas nila sa tv my celebrity pang nalalaman.. my pa 7 7mbps pang nalalman may pa unlimited pang nalalaman.. parang di mga nag aral napaka basic.. (unlimited)? unlimited ba tawag niyo dyan? baka unlimited sa bagal.. dapat un nalang iadvertise nyo e. globe unlimitd.. 3hours pakagat ng mahigit 1mb after 3hours unlimited bagal na 50kb hahaha.. anu magagawa mu dun? panooring umiikot ung bilog sa gitna.. GLOBE kawawa ang naniniwala sa inyo my superplans pang nalalaman haha.. mga pakana e no. magkano binabayad ninyo sa mga celebriting kinukumbinsi nyong i angat ang product ninyo.. e kung nagpagawa nalang kayo ng mga structure na mag papabilis sa internet edi sana mas magkaayos tayo..

    so guys!!!! lipatan na!!!!!!!

    • tama ka kua. ubod talaga ng bagal ang globe internet. ito nga gamit ko ngaun. globe tatto packet wifi. sa umaga pag na tyambahan mabilis, pero pag dating ng tanghali, nga_nga na ako sa subrang globagal ng internet. kapit bahay ko nga may tattoo packet wifi naubos narin ang pasinsya sa bagal ng internet, alam mo kung anong ginawa sa wifi nya? pinitpit nya ng martilyo. naging GLOBEDUROG. lilipat nalang daw sya sa PLDT HOME BRO. ako rin lilipat narin sa iba. crang cra na ang image ng globe dto sa logar namin.

      kaya kayo mga kaibigan.
      lipat n rin kayo..

    • Mag hintay ka lang po tuwing 12am mag rereset po yan babalik yan sa dating Mbps niyan. Bumabagal lang po pag nareach sa 800mb ng wala pang 12am. pero wait kalang po pag 12am magrereset na po yan then kinabukasan pag gagamitin mo po bumalik na sa dating Mbps niya.

  21. bwiiiisssiiit ang globe!!!!!!!!!!!!
    hindi ba nila mababago yan? bobo naman ng mktg strategy nila.. ay naku!!! kung di lng sana nila ginagawa satin to ay hayahay ang buhay!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Globe user here :) ganyan po talaga yun globe tatto. TIPS ko po para sainyo mag DL po kayo ng My App Manager sa may App Store or Google Play para po malaman niyo yun MB na nagamit niyo, Pag na Download niyo na po iplan niyo nalang po sa may My App Manager set to limit= 800mb and data used =0MB lang pag bagong register lang po makakatulong po yan para alam niyo kung paano mag tipid sa MB :)

    • Saka po pala mag rereset po yan tuwing 12am :) babalik po ulit siya sa dating Mbps kaya wag po kayong magalit :3 unlimited nga po pero pag nag reach babagal lang yun pag susurf niyo. Hindi lang naman po kasi kayo yun Globe User eh

  23. I’ve been using Globe and nasanay na ako sa cap nila. Even Smart has data limit too. I worked as a Customer Service Rep/Tech Support with a US Prepaid Service and they too have caps. Plan ko na nga lang magswitch to PLDT MyDSL, walang limit “daw”. Totoo ba? Anyone here na gumamit na ng PLDT MyDSL? Thanks :)

  24. UNLI Surfing? Screw fucking GLOBE!!! 800MB data limit! This is frustrating! Isang movie na HD lang yan! This is scam! MUKHANG PERA KAYO!!

  25. still if you browse only its the same you will recieve the the globe messege in short time even if you not downloading

  26. ang smart. walang limit. nkakadownload kame ng hd movies. un ang totoong unli surf. sana lng wag nila gayahin ang bulok n style ng globe.

  27. Napaka walang kwenta ng Globe. Dapat 2 Gig a day ang limit, parang sa US. Hindi yung lecheng 800 mb,

    Puro pera lang talaga ang importante sa Globe, Pinkamahalaga sa kanila ang kumita over customer satisfaction. Yan ang Globe.

    Tsk tsk.
