Understanding Globe Broadband Billing System for the New Subscriber

Latest Globe Plans

The Globe Broadband @Home plans are mainly sold by third party agents Globe calls BBSPs or Broadband Sales Partners. There are numerous agencies scattered all throughout the archipelago who maintains sales agents that peddles daily to houses offering Globe Telecoms broadband packages and I am one of them.

The confusion among subscribers, especially the new ones regarding their bill, arises from the agent's failure to fully discuss the specifics of the product they are selling especially billing. Globe's directive regarding this matter is very strict and it should be complied for by any agent who represents Globe Telecoms to fully disclose the billing system. Agents who are on the rush to earn a commission from the sale they make may forget to fully discuss the most important subject, the Bill.

So to make things clear, I will discuss one specific plan, in this case Plan 1099 whether LTE or Wimax.

  • Speed 2 Mbps
  • Bundled with SHP (Super Home Phone)
  • Has Free Wifi (Built-In / TP Link)
  • Includes FREE antenna
  • Upfront Payment (1 MSF + 200 SHP Activation Fee)

  1. MSF (Monthly Service Fee) paid in advance (P1,099)
  2. Installation Fee P,1000.00 (paid in 3 monthly installments at P333.33/mo on top of the Bill)
  3. Super Home Phone Activation Fee is 1200. (P200 paid in advance the rest in 5 monthly installments of P200)

To Sum-Up:

Bill for the first 3 months:

 MSF                 : P1,099.00
Installation Fee    :P   333.00
SHP                   : P   200.00
       Sub Total     P 1632.00 + VAT

The Upfront payment paid during installation is credited on the second month, so the first bill will only arrive by the second month, a combined 1st and 2nd Bill.

Bill for the last 4 and 5 Months

 MSF                 : P1,099.00
Installation Fee    :P  
SHP                   : P   200.00
       Sub Total     P 1299.00 + VAT

Bill starting from the 6th to the 24th month : P 1,099 + VAT
With the simple calculations presented above, I hope this satisfies the questions every new subscriber have with regards to their bill. More concerns? please call 211 on your Globe mobile phone.

Globe 4G LTE Features, Updated Plans and Product Catalog

Globe Latest Flyer
To beat the stiff competition, Globe Telecoms updated its 4G LTE, Wimax and DSL Plans to stay at the edge. Strategies like this brought a steady stream of customers to the Globe @Home Broadband segment with a conversion rate of more than 10 subscribers per day (in Ilocos Norte), so saturation is very close. Sarrat, Solsona and Dingras Nodes are already close to being fully utilized but the clamor for more lines is obvious.

What could be the reason why so many people seemed to like Globe Broadband in general? Maybe, Globe's superior service and performance, price and functionality could be the primary factor considered by clients in contrast with the other service providers.

The addition of a Super Home Phone (also a landline phone) that boasts FREE UNLIMITED calls to Globe/TM Network nationwide attracted  businesses and home makers alike to avail of the service. The SHP unit is a Huawei FC312e, basically a mobile phone with a SIM card. But this SIM card is assigned with 2 numbers. A landline number and a Globe mobile phone number.

Back of the Modem showing the ports.

 The modem, also a Huawei, is a perfect match for the SHP. This modem is  a top of the line equipment. It is solidly built and designed to last a long time. This modem has several LAN ports at it's back that could accomodate four desktops at once, while providing internet connectivity to other home and mobile devices by it's built-in WiFi.

Globe Wimax Bundle Plan 1,299 with Free UNLI-CALL to Globe and TM Review

As "Project Rain Fire" comes to an end by April 10, 2013, I have seen a lot of of other network subscribers trying to terminate their current subscriptions just to experience what Globe Telecom subscribers are enjoying.

However, most would be switchers are hindered by their lock-in periods. So what's the hype about the Globe's Project Rain Fire? As Globe is doing it's coun
try-wide infrastructure upgrades, more and more places are being covered such as Dingras, Currimao, Pagudpud, Sarrat, Solsona here in Ilocos Norte just to name a few. These places never experienced 4G although they are already 3G covered. But what makes this offer so unresistable?

Since not most of the would be switchers were not able to subscribe, here is a brief review of the Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax Bundle Promo. There are two Plan options Plan P1,099 and Plan 1,299 both of them are loaded with FREE unlimited calls to Globe and TM mobiles. The only difference is the bandwidth. The latter (Plan 1,299) comes with 2Mbps bandwidth while Plan 1,099 is only 1 Mbps.

After a 24 hour activation period for the UNLI-CALL feature, I had the chance to call as many friends as I could located anywhere in the country. I started with friends in my hometown until I reached a friend who is from Davao City. For every call I made, a minimum of 30 minutes each except the Davao call which lasted for hours until my friend ran out of batteries. The call quality was superb, no noise, no static whatsoever was observed during my calls. It was actually very clear and loud! Just the UNLI-CALL alone, I could say that I am willing to pay for this meager amount  for the quality service.

The DATA service (Internet) is also very stable. There are only a few occasions when speeds drop due to the ongoing upgrades but only on short durations. During peak hours, the speed is still within the specified range which very much favorable to online marketers like me and as well as those with online businesses.

So why settle for less when you can have the best from a very stable network. If you would like to subscribe before the deadline ends on April 10, call the following number right now. You can reach me at 09179656526.

Project Overlord, Speed Up When You Need It!

It's been quite sometime since my last post and this time I' gonna say something about Project Overlord. This is just a short one, so bear with with me.

Speed Boost is an option where customers choose the usual time they do their stuff on the internet. The Speed Boost option or 'Add-On" is categorized into three (3) time frames daily. For example, DAY is from 10am to 2pm, NIGHT is 10 am to 2 am  and INSOMNIAC is from 2 am to 6 am. These three time frames is what we call Speed Boost Option.

Project Overlord on the other hand is a protocol that defines how Speed Boost is incorporated into new subscriptions. Having said that, this is where customers choose what Speed Boost they would want to avail and test it out for 1 month FREE. The Add-On can be terminated at any time before the end of the billing cycle to avoid additional charges.

Brgy. Cadaratan A Wimax Dead Zone? An Aerial Survery Proves It

I've been quite cynical about an area which I believe is fully covered by Globe Wimax in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte. The barangay in question is Brgy. Cadaratan. This barangay is located along the Philippine National Highway and is largely surrounded by farmlands. No apparent obstruction can be immediately noticed in this area.

Brgy. Cadaratan is one of my regular market routes and have had successful Wimax Installations until an applicant who's house is located in this what they call a dead zone. To my surprise, full attenuation! Not even a slight indication that a signal could be detected in this zone. It left me wondering why until I consulted Google Maps and here's what I've found.

Globe Tattoo@Home DSL Gets Even Cheaper!

To some the P500 increase to Globe DSL installation fee making it P1,000 has some sugar coating they say. Well, sugar coat or not here is the deal.

Applications for DSL until the end of July will receive 10% discout on their monthly bill for 5 months! On the sixth month, regular bill will be charged.

You save a minimum of P500 (Plan 999) during the duration of your contract or lock-in period. So what's stopping you to apply?

A Globe Wimax for Every Home, Project Beyond is Here Once More

Applicants in areas no longer covered by the GEMS map can no longer  avail of Globe WIMAX. This limitation was put in effect last year and is still effective. Due to the growing demand for Globe WIMAX service in uncovered areas, Mr. Stephen Palma Territory Sales Head (TSH) of Globe Broadband North Luzon brought the issue to the attention of Mr. Law, Area Sales Head (ASH) for Globe Broadband North Luzon during the monthly MOR's in Baguio City.

The resulting conference approved a project we call Project Beyond. This ongoing project for the month of July extends the 1Km coverage area in several qualified areas in Ilocos Norte to 2 Km aerial distance from the nodes in the following areas: Bacarra, Batac City and Badoc.

If your prior application was refused before maybe this is the right time to apply once more. The duration of the project might be a month only so why not apply today. Call me and I'll gladly take that call.

Globe Telecoms Node at Bacarra, Ilocos Norte Under Stress

For over two weeks now, Internet connectivity has become intermittent especially in areas outside the guaranteed 2 kilometer radius coverage area. Old subscribers prior to the implementation of the GEMS Map or serviceable areas are at risk due to lack of service support extended to them due to newly implemented service coverage area.

During the two week period until now, I have noticed on several occasions an entire sector go down unexpectedly. A node (Globe Tower) is divided into three sectors. Now Wimax connections in certain areas are connected to one sector and any sector going down stresses the system further as the modems connect to another sector. If this happens, currently connected wimax modems abruptly disconnects to give way to the incoming connections from the other sectors.

Minimizing Cost on International Calls to the US and Canada with Globe Tattoo Internet, Magic Jack and Skype

Telcos offer as low as P2/min on international calls on the mobile phone. However, calls placed using the internet is a lot cheaper. Voice Over IP has been around since 1996. The first VOIP used the H.323 protocol instead of the more prevalent SIP protocol we use today.

The traditional telephone is slowly being replaced with broadband internet telephony or VOIP. During its initial stages, the "Internet Phone" had a very poor audio as compared to the traditional phone due to the lack of high speed or broadband internet. Today, all the issues that accompanied the "Internet Phone" in the early nineties have all been adressed.

10 Inch Fast Pad Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4 Sold by CDR-King Works with Globe Tattoo Stick E153u-2

The 10 inch Fast Pad (Android ICS 4.0.3) Tablet sold at CDR-King is for me a nice gadget to have for its price. I could make use of it as a document storage, note-keeper and book reader. But one thing came to my mind. How about internet capability?
10" Tablet FastPad Android ICS 4.0.3

The Fast Pad is WiFi ready but how about if you go to places where it's not available. So I asked one of the sales ladies if it is 3g capable. The answer was affirmative but there are only a few dongles that it could support. They are:

Globe Telecom Offers Internet Protection for the Family with the SurfSafe Add-On Featuring McAfee AntiVirus Plus & McAfee Family Protection

Surfing online without any security is very dangerous. We are exposing ourselves to viruses, malware/addware, online scams/fraud and worst identity theft. Credit card and bank credentials can be easily sniffed by hackers so easily when we are not protected online.

Emails we open are sometimes armed with malwares that are executed in the background without us knowing. The virus is only executed once and it disappears from your computer once the purpose have been achieved. Without a first line of defense, in this manner data can be stolen which includes but not limited to the identity of the user, financial information, sensitive corporate data and so much more.

Weak Signal Related to Wimax CPE BM622 RF Cable Connector

Last night a friend asked me to test her area to determine if she could apply for a Globe Wimax Broadband. She uses a competitor broadband internet provider and she claims she is no longer happy with it.

Hesitant I am because when I consulted the Gems Map (Coverage Area Map) it's very clear that her area is no longer covered. So I told her, no coverage but she insisted. So I took my BM622 Wimax modem and a spare antenna for testing purposes and proceeded to their place and with a very confident tone I told her "you will be satisfied tonight that your area is not covered".

Wireless Express Connect (WEC) The Fastest & Most Convenient Globe Wimax Internet Installation Method

WEC as we normally say, is the fastest, easiest and the most convenient way of applying for a new Globe Wimax Internet for the home. The process involved is a complex method made easy by Globe Agents and Installers all working together to achieve a common goal of making the application and installation process as quick as possible.

This convenience can only be possible when the application is processed by an Agent (TPA such as me). Depending on the time of day you applied for a Wimax Internet connection from an Agent, the installation is is usually done same day (morning application) or if you applied in the afternoon, it will be installed the next day. In contrast to Globe Business Centers, the applicant will have to wait for at least 3 business days prior to onsite visit and installation.

Easy Repair Service Request Procedure Using Your Globe/TM Mobile

Reporting concerns regarding Globe Postpaid and Globe broadband can be easily accessed by dialing 211 on your Touch Mobile or Globe Mobile Phone. For prepaid, a minimum load balance of P7.50 is required to access 211. The Call-in service (211) is toll free and is available 24/7. However, Live Agents are only available from 8 AM to 8 PM.

I myself hate calling 211 due to the lenghty voice prompts and sometimes a time comsuming litany of advertisements are being played. I know that this is just one way of holding a client a little more before reaching the preoccupied Live Call-in Agents.

High Gain Wimax Antennas for "Weak Signal" Areas

Globe Telecoms released what it calls "Gems Map" late year 2011 to address weak signal problems in the country. This Map limited the availability of Wimax Broadband Internet from the original 5 KM radius to 1-2 Kilometer radius from the Node.

Sample Wimax Gems Map for Laoag City
Wimax Gems Map for Laoag City

This move had a profound impact in terms of sales for us due to a reduced coverage area. Originally covered areas can no longer apply for a Wimax Broadband Internet due to a limitation imposed by Globe Telecom itself.

Getting to Know Your Wimax Antenna from the Inside and Out

Have you ever wondered how the Wimax antenna look like from the inside? Well, of course we are always curious so I dissambled one, because I  myself have been mystified by this white rectangular box being attached on a pole and placed on the roof whenever a Globe Wimax Internet is being installed.
Before I show you what I found, let's look at the detailed product descrption:

Globe Telecom launched what it calls Project Overlord, a project that enabled an add-on to an existing or new Globe Wimax Broadband client.

Below is another scanned image from the flyers we distribute. See for yourself and decide which one is best suited for your surfing habit.

Globe Internet Insane Speeds from 512 Kbps to 100 Mbps | Wimax, DSL, & Torque Plan Details

Globe broadband offers a wide range of Internet speeds from 512 Kbps up to 100 Mbps. Below is a scanned image of the flyer we distribute to potential customers:

Wimax 4G, DSL and Torque Internet Plans

Torque is also available in speeds of upto 10 and 15 Mbps. Torque is limited to Forbes Park, Urdaneta Village, Bel-Air and Serendra for the mean time.

Feel free to contact me for Globe Wimax application. I cater to Ilocos Norte clients only. Call or Text 09178225583.

Remedies for Globe Wimax Weak Signal Problem

A client once complained to me, "When you installed my Wimax, the signal was very good, but now I only have one bar." Then I continued to ask him when was your Wimax connected? He replied "Oh it's been two years from now!"

This casual conversation prompted me to inspect his antenna and modem. I performed several tests and found out that nothing is wrong with the devices. I went out and found out that a tree had grown in two years time between the Node (Globe's Antenna Tower) and his Wimax antenna. So it's very obvious that the signal quality degraded in time due to a blockade caused by the tree.

Bored at 1Mbps? Get a Globe Wimax Bundle a Cheap 2 Mbps and Voice Capable Solution

Here in the Philippines, we normally see offers from Telcos with 1 Mbps at roughly P1,000 pesos per month service fee. This has become the norm for residential Wide Area Network (WAN) access. So. relatively Telcos are asking P1,000 pesos per 1Mbps bandwidth for household or personal use.

Globe Telecom on the other hand, would like to double the fun for the home consumer. Last month, (May 2012) it introduced Project Overlord, hence the Speed Boost Option. This add-on will increase the current speed from 1 Mbps to 2 Mbps on a predefined time.

LAN Setting for Globe Wimax 2 Mbps Bundle for Windows

Some home LAN owners complain that Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax is not suited for LAN. They complain about not being able to access some websites or play online games when Globe Wimax is shared across a Home Network whether LAN or WiFi. They would usually complain about weak signal or not getting the bandwidth they were promised.

Ok, so we will deal with that issue today. So what is the problem? Is it a DNS issue? or No Connectivity Issue? It's none of the above. Calling 211 or Customer Service will NOT touch on the issue of MTU or Maximum transmission Unit. So read on...

Build A Home Network with Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax 2 Mbps Bundle

Sharing the internet with family is the best way to take advantage of the Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax 2 Mbps Bundle. Aside from the voice capability of this package, it is also a quick seller.

Sharing the Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax 2 Mbps via WiFi is the quickest method, since most devices and gadgets now have WiFi capability. Another is sharing across a home LAN if safety from RF radiation is a concern. A LAN requires switches and cables to distribute bandwidth in different areas which in my opinion is harder to implement but this set-up is more secure and a lot safer.

Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax/DSL SOP: Credit Checking & Sample Application Requirements

Prior to approval of any of Globe Telecom's Service Application, a credit check is performed based on the following information: Name of Subscriber, Birthdate and Mother's Full Maiden Name. Upon completion of the Application Form, a credit check follows which determines your eligibility for service application approval. Un-settled payments for services even decades ago will disqualify the applicant immediately. If you are a victim of an identity theft, visit any Globe Wireless Center and request for a copy of the service applied under your name and follow whatever is advised to clear your name.

Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax 1 Mbps Internet Mobility & Landline Solution, Price and Plan Details

Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax 1 Mbps comes in two flavors, a Data Only (Plan 999) and a Voice Activated bundle (Plan 1,099) where an extra basic telephone set is connected to the modem for local calls only initially. NDD/IDD and other value-added features can be activated by visiting any Globe Wireless Center (Store) in your area or by calling Customer Service on your Globe/TM mobile phone. Dial 211 for Customer Service Representative. This call-in service is available 24/7.

Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax Cheapest Internet Service, Price and How to Apply

With soaring commodity prices in mind, a budget internet connectivity solution is available from Globe Tattoo@Home Wimax at Plan P799 per month. The plan includes a 512 Kbps upstream/downstream speed, a modem and antenna attached to a pole on the roof or without an antenna provided the requisites prescribed by Globe Telecom are met.
