Globe Broadband WiFi

During one of my usual trips to the Globe Telecom Business Center at Ayala Center Cebu to cash out from GCash, I picked up one of their flyers advertising Globe Broadband WiFi. It's the internet plan recommended for multiple Internet users in one place. With a 24-month contract or "lock-in" period, you can get a free WiFi router for your home to share access to the Internet with your family and friends.

You can choose from any of wired broadband plans offered to get a WiFi router for your home:
Internet Only
Priced at only Php 999.00 per month with a Php 500.00 one-time set-up fee, you can already surf the Internet at speeds reaching 1 Mbps.
Internet and Landline Plus
For those who want Internet access bundled with landline, prices start at Php 995.00 to Php 1,995.00, depending on the choice on Internet speed cap. The set-up fee is waived for this plan.
The actual Internet speed may vary depending on computer hardware/software specs, the number of people simultaneously using the connection, and the traffic to the site being visited. Further, some selected areas in the Philippines cannot avail a wired plan and are therefore offered wireless plans but at less surfing speed.

Want to subscribe? Here's how:

The following must be submitted to an authorized Globe representative:
  • A duly signed application form
  • A copy of valid ID
  • Proof of billing
Either submit proof of financial capacity or make a Php 500.00 advance payment.

One last thing

The information on this post is based on the flyer I obtained. Eventually, the info may no longer be accurate. Hence, it is best to check out the Globe Broadband official page. You can also call Globe at (02)730-1000 for Globe Landline and 211 for Globe/TM mobile for more details.
