Globe Tattoo unveils most affordable prepaid LTE broadband devices in the country

Tattoo Prepaid LTE Stick

Tattoo, the country’s most reliable mobile broadband, pushes the envelope of fast internet service once more with the launch of its brand-new prepaid LTE (Long Term Evolution) service at the most affordable prices in the market today.

Tattoo LTE Mobile WiFi

Tattoo Prepaid LTE comes in two forms: as an LTE mobile Wi-Fi device which powers up to 10 devices at P4,995 and doubles as a power bank with 3,000 mAh that can charge phones and tablets and as an LTE stick priced at P3,995. Both devices come with free 5 GB worth of data valid for 7 days allowing users to stream videos, upload photos, play games and apps, and browse through social networking sites in lightning speeds. Afterwards, subscribers can continue the LTE experience with standard browsing charges of P5 for 15 minutes or through surfing deals like the new MAXSURF. MAXSURF is Tattoo’s volume-based offer that gives subscribers bulk megabytes (MB) of surfing, only using up the kilobytes loaded for each webpage regardless of how long subscribers stay on the page, allowing them to extend their surfing days.

Compared to other service providers in the country, Tattoo’s prepaid LTE packages offer the lowest rates for the fastest speeds. Now, Tattoo users can experience LTE speeds of up to 42Mbps while still having full freedom and control over their Internet consumption with the prepaid offers.

Powered by Globe, the largest 4G network in the country, Tattoo’s LTE boasts of an impressive coverage across major regions and cities around the entire country. Moving forward towards ensuring greater and more stable coverage for customers, the telco’s LTE coverage focuses on large contiguous areas instead of pocket activations and hotspots.

Following the aggressive rollout of LTE coverage nationwide, Tattoo now has LTE sites available in select areas in Makati City, Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig City, Manila, Muntinlupa, Mandaluyong, San Juan and Las Piñas. The Globe LTE infrastructure has also expanded to key areas in Metro Cebu and Metro Davao as well as in the provinces of Bohol, Batangas, Negros Occidental, La Union, Rizal, Aklan, Laguna, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Cavite, Cagayan, Pangasinan, Isabela, Ilocos, Quirino, Tarlac and in Boracay, Aklan.

As Dong Ronquillo, Tattoo Head of Nomadic Broadband Business, puts it, “In Tattoo, we want every Filipino to experience the best of what Internet technology has to offer, thus the availability of our prepaid LTE packages made more accessible and affordable. With these breakthrough offers, we are once again pushing the limits when it comes to access to the latest and fastest internet connection that will level up the Filipino experience.”

In addition to offering the fastest, largest, and now most affordable Prepaid LTE services, Tattoo also offers browsing in sophistication and style in its LTE devices. Designed by Kenneth Cobonpue, the Filipino design maven known for his talent worldwide, Tattoo’s LTE devices sport an edgy and sleek new image.

Another revolutionary Filipino, Junior F1 driver Marlon Stockinger was chosen by Tattoo as the ambassador for its fastest and most stylish Internet services. Having achieved such fete, Marlon along with Tattoo are the true champions of speed.

Experience Internet connection as fast and as stylish as it has ever been with Tattoo LTE.

Globe SuperSurf50 connection problems

Before, Globe’s mobile internet data cap is at 1GB daily limit. Now, they lowered it to just 800MB. I’m okay with it since most of the time, I only do blogging and social networking whenever I’m online. I believe, these, along with researching for my freelance work, won’t consume an 800MB per day. So I switched to Globe Tattoo from Sun Broadband prepaid whose signal in my area is not too reliable.

Globe’s connection is way better than Sun’s. That I experienced during my first few registrations using their consumable package PowerSurf. It was with my subscription with SuperSurf50 that I got pissed off!

First, July 7, 2011. I registered to the service around 11:30PM. At around 12:30AM, my connection got disconnected. I tried calling their customer service but they’re only up until 12 midnight. Good thing they have their Chat Assist service through their web site. So I asked my room mate who’s also online during that time to lend me his laptop so I can converse with Globe reps.

During our conversation, I was told that there’s a signal problem in my area – particularly in the Cybergate 3 Mandaluyong City, the location of the cell site serving my area. So I accepted the reason and told them to fix the problem ASAP so I can work on my tasks that morning.

I woke up at around 10AM, July 8. When I plugged in my dongle, I got a message from 8888 saying that I have reached my 800MB limit for that day. Since I’m aware of this Fair Use Policy, I immediately contacted Globe Customer Service to tell them that I never get to use my subscription for more than an hour. I told them that it’s impossible that I’ll reach that limit in a minimal time without doing heavy online activities.

According to their Fair Use Policy, you’re only limited to these online activities so as not to exceed the 800MB daily limit:

  • Send/receive 22,400 plain text emails
  • Send/receive 2,720 emails with document attachments
  • View 2,720 web pages
  • Download 200 songs
  • Upload/download 1,600 social media posts
  • View 272 minutes of streaming video
  • Download 1 90-minute movie

For just an hour being online using SuperSurf50 subscription, do you think I can do more than these activities? The rep gave me a reference number afterwards saying that they’ll have it investigated. I trusted them. Ref # QCN11070005534.

The following day, July 9, I registered to SuperSurf50 at around 3AM. Connection was great. I was able to do my online duties. Everything seemed fine. So when I woke up at around 12NN, I expected that everything will remain okay. And then I got a message from 8888 saying that my subscription has already ended. This time, no 800MB-related issue. Plain and simple – I’m no longer registered to SuperSurf50 after 9 hrs (from 3AM-12NN).

No one ever replies on Twitter (@talk2Globe) where I posted most of my rants about the service. So I switched back to Sun Broadband and chatted via Globe’s Chat Assist. I reported the second incident and got another reference number: QCU11070000870.

I don’t know what’s happening to Globe’s system. It keeps on disconnecting my SuperSurf50 subscription. For now, I’ll be using my Sun Broadand SIM until they get this problem fixed. Please Globe, do the necessary actions and issue a refund.
