Super Surf: Globe Unlimited Internet

No comments
Many are confused with what Super Surf is because of a promo both similar in name and service, Surf All Day. So to make it clear, Super Surf gives you the unlimited access to any website using Globe Tattoo USB modem (or an open line USB modem) or Internet-capable mobile phone. All Day Surf is a mobile internet service giving you access to specific mobile websites only.

Registration is done only through SMS. Please be aware this promo is only available to Globe Tattoo prepaid and Globe prepaid subscribers. Unfortunately, Globe postpaid subscribers cannot register to this service.

How To Register:
  1. Simply text the keyword SuperSurf50 to 8888. This provides you 1 day unlimited Internet access. Alternately, you can also send the keyword SuperSurf220 to 8888 for 5 days unlimited access to the Internet.
  2. If registration is successful, you will receive an SMS accordingly. You can also check your subscription status by texting SuperSurf STATUS to 8888.
  3. You will receive an SMS notifying you if your subscription is about to expire. By then you will have to register again to the service. If not, you will be charged the regular rate of Php 5.00 per 15 minutes of Internet access.
When you do the math, SuperSurf220 is actually cheaper than SuperSurf50, with the previous only amounting to just Php 44.00 per day. For heavy internet users, having to register everyday can be a hassle too, hence SuperSurf220 as a better option.

A maintaining/remaining load balance of Php 5.00 is needed to be able to use Super Surf.

For more info, you can check out Globe Tattoo's official website or text SuperSurfHelp to 8888 on your mobile phone.

Important! Read my new post regarding the 1 gigabyte daily limit for this service.
