“It’s a brave new world for broadband. We don’t talk about speed anymore.”
It’s no longer about the speed; it’s all about the content now. This is what one of the Globe Tattoo executives has always been pointing out during its Cebu media launch for Globe’s latest home broadband offers. After ending its unlimited DSL offerings (yes, no more unlimited downloads and streamings), Globe Tattoo now attempts to entice customers with its entertainment bundles or exclusive contents.
Globe Tattoo’s entertainment services include:
- SPOTIFY for music streaming and downloading
- HOOQ for local and foreign movies/TV series streaming and downloading
- NBA League Pass for live and on-demand HD access to all NBA games
Meanwhile, here is Globe’s latest entertainment-bundled DSL plans:
The main good thing I see in these new plans is that, aside from all the entertainment and convenience, it also saves us from pirate streaming and downloading at the very least. You can watch shows with peace of mind.
However, these entertainment plans can be tricky for an average user. One might think he can now watch movies or shows to sawa or access these unlimited contents without worrying about the data limit. Thus, he can easily fill up the data cap especially if he’d like to watch in high definition. And of course, these plans are apparently for usage at home where an average Filipino family consisting of 4-6 members lives. Subscribers really need to monitor and be careful with their online activities.
It seems that Globe is slowly adapting the pay per bucket policy for their subscribers as what the rest of the world is doing now.
