Since the start of the global pandemic last 2020, people are required to stay at home.
This has caused a significant increase in the demand for internet data, both for students, employees, and businessmen.
Students needed to consume more data in order to attend their online classes, employees needed to work from home which means that the tasks they need to accomplish will be done and submitted online, and businessmen continued their operations through various online platforms.
It’s a good thing that Globe has a Homesurf199 promo!
Going to computer shops is not an option now because the government has restricted the public, especially minors, from going out of the house in order to contain the virus from spreading.
Globe knew that there will be an increase in the demand for a data connection as almost everything has transitioned online, so they improved their internet services and provided the public with various options and promos, and this includes their Globe Homesurf199.
Inclusions in Globe’s Homesurf199 Promo
Globe Homesurf199 is most suited for those who need to browse the web, post on social media, check e-mails, and submit other school or work-related tasks.
If you are someone who loves to stream movies online, then Globe recommends that you try a different promo like Globe HomeWATCH because this offers a higher data allocation to accommodate streaming sites like iWant TV, Youtube, Netflix, TikTok, iFlix, NBA, and HOOQ.
For those who simply need the data to attend classes, submit outputs, or post online, the Homesurf199 offering from Globe includes 22 GB of data which is divided into the following:
- 15 GB of open access data for a period of 7 days. (You can use this data to access apps and websites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Messenger, Zoom, Snapchat, Spotify, Google Meets, Netflix, Mobile Legends, Clash of Clans, PUBG, Wild Rift, and much more!)
- 1 GB daily access to Youtube for a period of 7 days
Overall, that is 22GB which you can use to attend classes, work from home, or maintain and grow your business!
Data Boost by Globe
Last March 21, 2020, Globe boosted their Homesurf199 Promo offering, and instead of getting 22 GB of data, they added in a free 7 GB which totals to 30 GB of data valid for 7 days (23 GB open access data + 1 GB of daily access to Youtube).
This boost lasted for a month, but Globe saw the need of its consumers, so they keep on extending this promo boost in their Homesurf199 offer!
They also gave their subscribers a chance to be updated on the news concerning COVID-19 by giving free access to the websites of the Department of Health (DOH) and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRMMC).
Winsley Bangit, the VP and Head of Globe At Home Prepaid said “Globe At Home understands that this is the time when everyone in the family needs to stay connected and safe at home. We hope that with this gesture, we can continue our role in providing more Filipino homes with affordable and quality Internet access to help them power through these challenging times.”
