Globe's Fair Use Policy

What is the Fair Usage Policy for mobile internet?

Globe is committed to provide reliable mobile internet service for all customers. As such, the Fair Usage Policy is a network management control measure designed to protect the security and integrity of our network, and to ensure connectivity for all Globe and TM customers.


For our customers subjected to Fair Use Policy, network management control measures will be implemented to give all Globe customers the opportunity to enjoy our network.

I'm a Globe Postpaid customer with a contract under ThePLAN. Am I subject to the Fair Usage Policy?

No, you're not. Your postpaid plan is not covered by the Fair Usage Policy. You'll also receive the customary text notification once you fully use up all the data in your plan.

What happens when I fully consume my data allowance under ThePLAN?

Two things can happen when you use up all your ThePLAN data allowance:


  1. If you’re subscribed to SurfAlert, your internet usage will stop and will only resume once you register to an add-on surfing promo. 
  2. If you’re not registered to SurfAlert, you’ll still be able to continue browsing at the regular rate of P2/MB, subject to your spending limit and capped at P1,500.

I'm a Globe Prepaid customer subscribed to a Go/GoSURF/GoSAKTO promo. Does the Fair Usage Policy also apply to me?

No, it doesn't. These promos are not subject to the Fair Use Policy.

What can I do to continue enjoying my services after being subject to the Fair Use Policy?

You may purchase add-on data promos called Speed Refresh to continue enjoying your services after being subject to the Fair Use Policy.

What is the Fair Usage Policy for unlimited call and text promos?
