Good news for Globe subscribers. Part of Globe’s CELEBRATE, Globe is offering per-second charging (as opposed to the normal per-minute, rounded-off charge). Up to January 16, 2006, Globe-to-Globe calls are now priced at Php 0.10 per second with a special dialing prefix.
Globe to Globe calls are now charged 10 centavos per second! Simply dial 232 + 10-digit Globe number. Available all day and no registration required!
With this promo, Globe prepaid and post paid subscribers truly get their money’s worth because they will only pay for the actual callduration down to the per second level.
But their claim of this being the “first time ever [that] mobile phone subscribers in the Philippines can … enjoy per second charging on their calls” is untrue. Piltel implemented a per-second charging with their Mobiline PhonePal brand (now Talk N’ Text, a brand of what is now a subsidiary of PLDT) analog cellular service about eight years ago.
At any rate, I hope they make this per-second charging a regular feature!
