In response to Smart Communications Always On data plans, Globe Telecom has added volume based data plans under its PowerSurf packages.
Right now the plans are offered as a promo valid until November 15, 2011. Subscribers with Globe Postpaid Plan, My Super Plan, My Fully Loaded Plan, or My Super Circle Plan can avail of this offer except those on Load Tipid Plans, Load Allowance Plans, Globe Broadband Tattoo Plans or My SuperSurf Plans.
Once you subscribe to the service it auto-renews after the expiration date. If you want to unsubscribe you have to text PowerSurf Off to 8888.
You should select the right volume for you. If you consume allocated volume the expiry period, you will be charged the regular Php5 per 15 minutes rate. SMS notifications are sent out to users at 50% and 100% usage.
Plans like this will allow many users to get the full potential from their smartphones. I hope the offer become permanent.
