Globe Tattoo officially announced their new LTE Pocket Wi-Fi yesterday at The Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City. The pocket Wi-Fi comes with a post-paid plan and prepaid option. In addition, subscribers who don’t want to buy the LTE pocket Wi-Fi device can opt to buy the prepaid LTE SIM card.
Post Paid versus Prepaid
Right now, there are two options for LTE: an LTE USB dongle and an LTE Pocket Wi-Fi.
The post paid Globe Tattoo LTE Pocket Wi-Fi costs P3995. The prepaid LTE pocket Wi-Fi, on the other hand, costs P4995. Globe boasts this price as it is competitive compared to Smart’s LTE pocket Wi-Fi, which costs P6995.
Here’s what you’ll get with the LTE Plan 1299:
If you want, to upgrade to the LTE mobile wi-fi, you simply need to add a one-time fee of P2000.
For post-paid plans, you can actually customize your own plan depending on your needs. You can check out the different options here: http://tattoo.globe.com.ph/customize.
Some of the consumable packages available are:
• Plan 299 from 30 hours to 50 hours
• Plan 499 from 50 hours to 85 hours
Both the LTE USB Dongle and the Pocket Wi-Fi allow subscribers to get a speed of up to 42 mbps. The Pocket Wi-Fi allows you to share up to 10 Wi-Fi devices like your smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
Not only that, the pocket Wi-Fi device is considered as a “dual device” as it also serves as a power bank (3000 mAh). This is convenient when you need to charge your phone while you’re on the go.
Is there a cap?
One thing worth noting about the LTE Plan 1299 is its 5 GB bandwith cap per month. However, Globe Tattoo gives subscribers an option to upgrade if you feel that 5 GB is not enough.
Is an LTE Prepaid SIM Card available?
If you already have an LTE device, a prepaid LTE SIM card is available as well, which costs P290.
Globe is working on widening their LTE coverage in the country. Right now, LTE coverage is available in select areas of:
