Filipinos can finally say goodbye to limited bandwidth — at least for Globe Home Broadband subscribers. The telco just listed their latest home broadband plans in their online shop.

The Go Unli Plan for home broadband starts at PhP 1,699/month for speeds of up to 5Mbps. Those who want faster internet can avail up to 100Mbps, but that’ll be location-dependent due to the limited coverage of Globe’s fiber network.

Compared to the existing Go Big plans, the cost of having unlimited broadband means slightly higher fees. The new unlimited broadband plans are as follows:

  • Broadband Plan 1699 — Up to 5Mbps
  • Broadband Plan 1899 — Up to 10/15/20Mbps
  • Broadband Plan 2499 — Up to 50Mbps
  • Broadband Plan 2899 — Up to 100Mbps

All of the Go Unli Plans come with free landline and unlimited calls to Globe and TM for 24 months. Like with any Globe plan, they come with free premium access to media streaming sites like Netflix, Disney, and HOOQ for six months.

What’s interesting about the new plans is that they can be availed with or without a contract. For the “No Lock-Up” subscription, it has a one-time modem fee of PhP 2,500 for DSL and PhP 4,500 for fiber. If it’ll be taken with a standard two-year contract, there’s a minimal installation fee of PhP 1,000 which is payable in three months and automatically charged to the monthly bill.

As per Globe, the average connection speed is 80 percent of the subscribed plan with a minimum guaranteed speed of 30 percent for fiber plans at 80 percent reliability.

You can check out the listing for Go Unli Plan via Globe’s website.

Buy a Pixel 3 on Verizon and get another one for free

Verizon’s BOGO deal is the best so far

Published

on

After all the leaks, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official. Both come with bigger screens, better cameras, and sadly, higher prices. If you want to get them at a more reasonable price, you could check out Verizon’s offer in the US.

For a limited time, you can buy one Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL through Verizon with monthly device payments for 24 months, and get a Pixel 3 (64GB) for free.

It’s basically a buy one, get one deal for the base model. If you wish to get a better variant, you can use the US$ 799.99 credit to get any other Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL model.

Of course, there’s a catch to these deals. Verizon wants you to add a new line to one of your Pixel 3 phones. Seems like a pretty fair deal, right? Pre-orders are now open through Verizon’s website.

The Pixel 3 phones are available in Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink colors. The Pixel 3 starts at US$ 33.33 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (US$ 799.99 retail price), while the Pixel 3 XL starts at US$ 38.74 per month for 24 months (US$ 929.99 retail price).
