Breaking: Globe MyFi Router FAQ

This just in! We just heard yesterday that Globe is going to offer portable WiFi routers. Today, we have the Frequently Asked Questions including new broadband postpaid plans. And yes, it is called Globe MyFi.

1. What are the new Tattoo Postpaid plans? Globe has made your life simpler by providing you with just 2 choices for your postpaid plans: Globe Tattoo Postpaid Plan 499 ideal for light users and Plan P999 for heavy users – both at 3mbps speed!

POSTPAID Tattoo Broadband
User Type Light Users Heavy Users
Affordability 499 999
Speed 3mbps
Access Limit 50 hours succeeding Unlimited
SMS P1 P1
Calls Mobile rates N/A
Coverage Nationwide
Innovation MyFi (+P250/mo)

Note: Plan P999, due to its unlimited internet access provision at a very affordable rate, doesn’t offer any calling feature.

2. Are the old Tattoo Postpaid plans still available? No. The new plans are far more affordable and superior than the current ones.

3. What will happen to current subscribers of old Globe Tattoo broadband postpaid plans? Existing subscribers who are out of their lock-up period may transfer to the new plans should they wish to by proceeding to any Globe Store to request for a change in their subscription. Only subscribers out of their lock-up period may do this.

4. Why should I get a postpaid broadband plan from Globe Tattoo? Globe offers the most affordable broadband plan available nationwide at only P499 and at the same time it also is the only brand with up to 3mbps speed across all postpaid plans, even on unlimited.

5. How do I subscribe to a Globe Tattoo Postpaid plan? Just bring any 1) valid ID, 2) proof of billing address, and 3) proof of income OR 1 month advanced payment and proceed to any Globe Store to subscribe.

6. What is the MyFi Device The Globe Tattoo Broadband MyFi Device is wireless WiFi router that enables you to share your internet access with other WiFi capable internet access devices simultaneously within a 10meter radius (coverage may decrease if there are obstructions such as walls). It’s an optional modem that you can subscribe to in lieu of the regular Globe Tattoo Postpaid stick for only an additional P250/ month for 24 months. After 24 months, you no longer have to pay the P250 and your bill will revert back to the regular plan rate.

  1. Can the router be protected via WPA or even WEP at least?

  2. do you happen to know if the unlimited tattoo 999 plan has a limit/cap? because i’m using prepaid now and if i subscribe to supersurf it is actually capped at 1gb per day. and then after that can no longer connect.
    so, i would just like to know if it is capped or not?
    i’m considering getting this..

    • Unfortunately, meron na nga and it happened just recently. You should be getting an SMS message like this:

      “globe advisory: your account has reached 1GB in usage today.Subject to Globe fair use Policy,your internet service has been temporarily deactivated an will resume tomorrow.This promo is intended for moderate use.For heavy browsing,please upgrade to our postpaid plans.thank you.”

      • ung capped at 1gb per day is for only in prepaid.. ung postpaid wla.. kaya sulit ung postpaid

      • I agree.. There is NO CAP/LIMIT pag POSTPAID ka.. I’m the kind of person whon loves to download a lot and streams a lot but so far for 6 months that i’ve been using this pospaid account NEVER pa ako naka try.. NOT UNLESS SELECTED AREAS LANG.

    • i’m not exactly sure if it’s capped. but i’ve been downloading a lot since i got the 999 postpaid plan. and as of today, the download speed won’t go up to 100 kbps or more as it would usually do. so i’m just gonna observe this. too bad i’m already locked in on a one year contract.

  3. do they offer myfi in prepaid kits as well? thanks.

  4. Will the sim work on a huawei B933 unit? Thanks!

  5. I have a myfi package bought from Globe that comes with a prepaid tattoo sim. While the use of the myfi is convenient esp. when I use my iPad, i wonder if there is an easier way to load and or apply for the SUPERSURF promo other than physically removing the sim card from the myfi unit and installing it in a phone then sending a text message? This is too much hassle and defeats the purpose of having a myfi.

    • use your ipad’s browser to connect to the MyFi’s admin page. this doesn’t require an internet connection, you just have to be in the myfi’s network. there’s a sms function in the admin page which you can use to load your prepaid.

  6. To avail 999 globe tattoo unlimited plan is the USB modem and the sim are given and pay 999.00 after complying the requirements?

      Hello,

      I am interested in the GLOBE TATTOO BROADBAND PLAN 999, Unlimited, no modem, SIM only (postpaid).

      1. Is it really without any lock-in period? I hate being stocked up in a 2-year contract again, first it will run fine and after some months it gets worse and worse (DSL, Cable internet).
      2. What are your experiences with the daily limit and cap on this postpaid plan? What will the daily limit be?

      Thanks.

  7. what if you don’t have proof of billing for your new location? like us, we just moved here. what other docs can we show?

  8. Macoy /

    i purchased this myfi post paid plan. the first month i used this i got a lot of trouble using the huawei device, when you subscribe to the plan the device doesn’t come with a seperate 220v outlet charger which i believe it should be the package, instead you only get a usb charger, the battery doesn’t last that long not even closer to 1 hour continuous use. when you are on the road surfing on your mobile device you would notice the device is so hot and sometimes will disconnect you. and after one month of use my device went dead. i sent it to globe for repair. its not a good purchase dont waste your money if you will plan for globe postpaid.

    • thanks for sharing that man. yeah these pocket routers tend to get hot over time. and yeah they only come with USB charger so that’s not a surprise but i would get around 4 hours out of my huawei e5. maybe yours was just defective from the start?

      • emmie /

        can we plug the usb charger to a usb adaptor on a wall charger? one time we used a cellphone charger to charge the device. ( it has the same mini usb size), and after a few days it wont charge anymore..

        • yup. sometimes kasi pagwall socket and yung usb adapter mo walang way to control the surge, nasisira nya yung charger eh pag nagspike ang voltage.

  9. jefhrey /

    this myfi router can use kaya kung gagamitin din d2 s japan kasi ung smartbro pdeng gamitin d2 more cheaper kc compare sa mga wifi router d2 sa japan

  10. Was recently provided by company with Prepaid Myfi Globe Tattoo. Kaso I’d rather have the P999 postpaid unli plan to maximize my use. Can I just change from prepaid to postpaid and avail the plan P999? May unit na kasi na binigay, won’t need to avail a plan that includes another unit sana… help

  11. I’m actually searching for the download limit of the Globe Broadband Postpaid and brought me to this blog. I have my Globe Broadband Postpaid 999 setup just this week. The Globe employee told me it’s capped to 2GB download per day but I just can’t prove if his telling the truth because I haven’t tried downloading over what was said yet. Uhm maybe this weekend.

  12. Hi,

    Just want to ask :
    1. If I need to unsubscribe to my present P999 postpaid Globe Tattoo plan, how much is the fee ?

    What are the requirements ?

    How long it will take ? Do I have to return the USB or it will be mine since I pay for it and can I still use that if I wanted to switch to prepaid ?

    2. Will it be possible to switch from Post Paid to Prepaid ? What are the requirements ? How long t will take and how much ?

    Thanks.
    Tes

    • there’s no termination fee as long as you’ve went past your contract… min. of 2 years i think. no need to return the usb din. punta ka lang sa globe center.

  13. Reymart Alfonso /

    Meron na bang USB charger kasama ng myfi kit? O ako ang magpoprovide?

  14. johnray /

    hi …i have a postpaid sim for globe tattoo plan 999 and i want to change it to prepaid..what will i do?…please help…
    tnx

  16. Hello. We’re interested on upgrading our net connection (either by upgrading our current PLDT plan or by jumping to Globe’s Postpaid plans). I have several questions that Filipino forums can’t seem to answer directly or I dunno, their answers are just too vague or complicated most of the time.

    1.) Is Tattoo’s Postpaid Plan 999 included in Globe’s Fair Use Policy?
    2.) If so, what are the limits enforced by Globe on this plan? (Value of data or speed cap per month or per day).

    Optional: Do you think it’s worth switching to Globe? or just stay with PLDT and upgrade (Plan 999 too).

    Thank you.

    • For me the best pa rin ang dsl connection pero kung gusto mo handy at pwedeng dalhin kahit on the go globe prepaid/postpaid sticks ang maganda lalo na yung tattoo 4g flash at tattoo 4g superstick dahil 4g connection na sya up to 7+ mbps at minimum of 12-48 kbps if no signal

  17. Kim /

    Pano po pag walang proof of income na mapkita, but sure that we can pay it. Di po ba ode yun?

  18. hello,

    ask lng po if pwede po ba ang globe myfi gamitin sa pc na walang wifi?

    thanks

    • kelangan may wifi adapter yung PC mo.

      • Calvin please help, pwede ba sa skype yang postpaid 999 ng Myfi, unlimited din ba use o may maximum usage per day sa skype ha? That’s very important for me contacting my family in the Philippines, Thanks:-)

    • warp214 /

      yes you can. it comes with a USB connector.

  19. ask ko lang po kung free unlimited text ung plan 999 na tattoo upgraded to myfi. .may option kasi dun sa configuration na pwede magtext,tinext ko sa globe nakakapagtext nga kaso baka may charge. .

    Hi,
    I have a 999,- Postpaid plan since May 15th this year. I am not locked in because I am using the SIM with my Tatoo Stick I used before for prepaid. The connection was mostly fine, 3G with average 2-3mb download and 0,3mb upload. I never observed any limitations (fair use). It seemed really unlimited.
    Since about 2-3 weeks the quality deteriorated dramatically. Now it’s mostly HSDAP or even EDGE connection with signal strenght of 20% until 0%! Before I had always more than 90%.
    Location is San Fran at Camotes Islands, close to the high school. Has anyone experienced the same? Is there some work going on? I excluded already possible causes from my side.
    Thanks for help!

  21. It's perfect time to make some plans for the
    longer term and it is time to be happy. I've read this
    put up and if I may I want to suggest you
    some fascinating things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles referring to this
    article. I desire to learn more issues about it!
