STARTING FEB. 7, SUBSCRIBERS of Globe Telecom Inc. may send and receive unlimited text messages after the National Telecommunications Commission approved the carrier's Txt Nonstop offering.
Txt Nonstop is open to Globe's 13 million prepaid and postpaid customers since September.
Txt Nonstop allows unlimited texting within the network for P15 for a day, P25 for 2 days and P50 for 5 days.
Globe said that on the average, subscribers availing themselves of the promo send 25 to 27 messages a day.
For the P15 a day Txt Nonstop, Globe said it collects only 58 centavos for each message. Globe's revenue falls to 49 centavos for each message sent under the P25 Txt Nonstop, and it goes even lower to 37 centavos a message sent under the P50 Txt Nonstop.
"The commission poses no objection [to giving its permanent approval], subject to the condition that Globe shall publish the mechanics in the newspapers," said the NTC.
Text messaging has become the most popular and most affordable way to communicate. More than 30 million Filipinos who own mobile phones send more than 400 million messages a day for P1 or less with each message sent.
You can activate you unlimited SMS by keying in the following and send them to 2870:
For 1 day, send: TXTNONSTOP15

For 5 days, send: TXTNONSTOP50
