Globe Broadband Tattoo: Visibility’s Extreme Rebranding!
Last March 12, Globe announced the availability of Globe Broadband Tatoo, which is basically the telecom’s Visibility wireless broadband service reoriented for the mass market. Through the use of bright, extreme colors, and a more “casual” look, perhaps Globe hopes to attract more customers who want to stay connected anywhere. Just like Visibility, Tattoo relies on Globe’s HSDPA infrastructure and a USB wireless modem.
Here are the service’s plans as of this writing. For prepaid users, Globe charges P5 for every 15 minutes of surfing, and for every fraction thereof (so if you surf for 17 minutes, you have to pay P10). The prepaid package costs P1,895.
For postpaid users:
|Plan||Free Internet Hours per Month|
|Plan 799||60 hours|
|Plan 999||75 hours|
|Plan 1499||120 hours|
Those who go beyond the free internet hours are charged P20 per hour, which of course, translate to P5 for 15 minutes. The difference is that postpaid users enjoy per-minute charging, so surfing for one hour and 3 minutes costs P21.
Globe Broadband Tattoo also enjoy WiFi access at any Globe WIZ hotspot. Complete details regarding coverage and costs are available here. The official press release reveals a potentially useful tidbit about the USB modem: it accepts microSD cards, which could be a boon for some cell phone users.
