Globe Telecom is set to unveil their new price scheme for the UnlimiTXT service of Globe Handyphone subscribers. Currently, Globe Telecoms offers unlimited texting between Globe subscribers for P15 for one day, P25 for two days, and P50 for five days. The scheme will cost subscribers more. Here's the rumored rates for the new Globe Unlimitxt/SulitTXT:
- P25 - 1 day unlimited texting between Globe subscribers plus P0.75/SMS to other networks.
- P20 - 1 day unlimited texting between Globe subscribers plus P0.90/SMS to other networks
- P15 - 1 day unlimited texting between Globe subscribers from 6:00am to 5:00pm (Daylite)
- P10 - 1 day unlimited texting between Globe subscribers from 10:00pm to 5:59am (Off-Peak)
My friends who're text addicts are always subscribing to UnlimiTXT50, unlimited texting good for 5 days. The service usually costs them P300/month for unlimited Globe-Globe texting but with the new scheme, the least they'll get is around P450 a month on "daylite". Off-Peak is useless with them since they work in the morning. Expect the new rates on Feb. 1, 2007.
Another win for Globe! Greedy bastards.
Good thing Lalaine and I have a prepaid SUN Cellular account. Our SUN Cellular accounts cost P150 each a month, and already includes SUN to SUN unlimited texting, P15 SMS to other networks, and a free 4 hour call to any SUN Cellular subscriber. Yan ang sulit!
