Globe to offer 15GB of data for P2,499 on new GoSurf plans; P2 per MB overage

Starting next week, Globe will replace its PowerSurf postpaid and prepaid data plans with the new GoSurf data plans. This comes after their fair usage policy generated negative reactions from their subscribers, mostly from those who are on contracts.

The previously-unlimited P999 monthly plan will now only give you 5GB of data, with a P2 per-MB overage charge when you exceed of allocation. Those wanting to get more amount of data may get the pricier 10GB plan at P1,799, or the 15GB plan at P2,499. Below is the table for the complete matrix of the new GoSurf plans.

Price Data Allowance Anti-Bill Shock Cap
P99 100MB P1,500
P299 700MB P1,500
P499 1.5GB P1,500
P799 3GB P1,500
P999 5GB P1,500
P1,799 10GB P3,000
P2,499 15GB P3,000

As you may have expected, when it comes to this type of data plan with a per-MB overage charge, Globe will implement anti-bill shock measures as well. Plans P999 and below will have an amount cap of P1,500 while Plans P1,799 and P2,499 have an amount cap of P3,000. These measures are there to prevent subscribers from racking up huge amount of bills from excessive data usage. Lastly, GoSurf plans, being a volume-based plan, are exempt from the fair usage policy also known as FUP.

The GoSurf data plans will be available for prepaid and postpaid starting April 13. Registration is done by texting GOSURFxxx (e.g. GOSURF999) to 8888.

Hi, I'm a postpaid subscriber of the 4g tattoo superstick. Will this be automatic or do I have to register or call globe or something?
