Unlimited Prepaid Fiber Internet Plans are on the rise, with Globe and Converge ICT offering their services through Globe GFiber Prepaid and Surf2Sawa just this year. See how these two pit against each other in this comparison.
Prepaid versions of Unlimited Fiber Internet plans were unveiled just this year, and two ISPs vie for your hearts and wallets to be your choice of connection. Here’s a quick look on how these two ISPs fare when compared:
For Prepaid Fiber
|Globe at Home|
|1 Day||NA||PHP 50|
|7 Days||PHP 299||PHP 200|
|15 Days||PHP 549||PHP 380|
|30 Days||PHP 999||PHP 700|
|PHP 1,499||PHP 1000|
+ payment for 1 plan above
|Max Days before inactivity||Suspended at 180 days after last use||Terminated if not reloaded at 60 days after last use|
|Max Speed||up to 30Mbps||up to 25Mbps|
Both ISPs offer no lock-ins for their Prepaid Fiber Internet, and their speeds are just alright for light to moderate Internet browsing, social media, and gaming for up to 6 devices connected via LAN or WiFi.
It’s clear that Converge ICT’s Surf2Sawa offers the more affordable unlimited fiber prepaid Internet at this time, with 1-day access at PHP 50 to a 30-day subscription at just PHP 700. The caveat with their prepaid ISP, however, is that you’ll need to reload within 60 days from the last day of your subscription or they will terminate the account. The installation fee is also PHP 499 cheaper compared to the other ISP.
Globe, on the other hand, offers much faster speeds at 30Mbps, and offers you a chance to reactivate the prepaid connection even after 3 months of not using. Reactivation, though, is dependent on availability in your area and may have corresponding reconnection fees.
