    According to Globe on Messenger, it is. :confused:o_O (Sorry for the super small screenshot, it was taken from a group chat)

    According to their website though, it's also subject to FUP but it's threshold is "10x more" than regular postpaid, whatever that is. http://www.globe.com.ph/help/mobile-data-theplatinum

    Right, you're not covered by Bill Protect but you *might* be covered by FUP for unli plans. Better clarify it with her.

    For FUP, i was given a guarantee that no fup if on unli data. That is why i agreed to have it added to my plan. She claims it is true unlimited data. I have yet to check though since i have never even exceeded my data allocation. I just need the unli included in cases where i might exceed my data allocation. No money added to my plan anyway since the unli data component is only deducted from the consumable amount

    the data allowance for non-unli data after hitting the billcap were not sure how much data is consumed before it slows down. as for ALL month surf were not also sure how much is the data here. it just says it's 10x more data vs regular plan so 30GB on 7999 is 300GB before it slows down.

    someone needs to test their system on platinum.

    Globe should put a real number here because we don't exactly know how much is the usage of regular globe postpaid plan.

    i hate Globe but you gotta give it to their team that proposes this kind of sh*t! with the new iPhone right around the corner, they can shove things like this and probably we will renew and new subscribers will still be lured.

    i thought about getting a prepaid each time my contract is up but i still end up recontracting time and again. for worse to worst, guess i am stuck with Globe. lol! i hope i am still alive when new telco/telcos is welcome and give Globe (and Smart) a rude awakening. :p

    This is insane... 1,500 pesos for 750MB? di ba parang kalokohan yun? so ibig sabinin mas maganda pang mag prepaid data na lang... Gosurf 999 is 8Gb... mag reload na lang palagi. OMG...

    Palusot lang nila yan to get away with legal

    Its their excuse to get away with legal issues.

    Pasok pa rin naman ang "subject to change without prior notice" nila sa agreement.

    Had mine reversed via the hotline as well. The agent told me to activate the surf alert to ON.

    This way my data will be barred after i consume my monthly allocation so i can opt to register to other available surf promos.
