Prepaid Globe subscribers, for years, can go online for a very affordable price of ₱136.00 for 1200MB of data valid for 30 days. This was made possible by sending GS99 and GOTSCOMBOKEA37 to 8080. That is, until today, when these two keywords were discontinued to the sad surprise of their loyal patrons.

For those who are not aware, prepaid Globe subscribers can get 200MB data for 30 days by subscribing to GoSURF99. It also comes with an additional free service, for example, free 1000MB of Facebook data. As the keyword suggests, GS99, it is only for ₱99.00.

After this has been activated, prepaid subscribers can send GOTSCOMBOKEA37 to purchase 1000MB of data for only ₱37.00. Since GS99 is active, this 1000MB of data will be automatically “upgraded” to the remaining days of the GS99 subscription instead of its usual 1 day validity.

In other words, for ₱136.00, a Globe prepaid user can surf with 1200MB of data, plus his or her choice of freebie — again as an example, 1000MB of Facebook data. It is so affordable even Smart subscribers, like myself, started using Globe’s mobile Internet.

That ended today, the 14th of January 2017, Globe discontinued these two most used promos. Sending GoSURF‘s GS99 keyword to 8080 the system will reply with this SMS:

We’re sorry, this promo is no longer available but good news, you can surf more up to 1 GB plus get free unli all-net text valid for 7 days, ₱70 only. Text GOTSCOMBODD70 to 8080.

Need more data? Get 1.5GB for 30 days, ₱299 oly! Text GS299 to 8080 to register.

Purchasing an additional gigabyte of data for only ₱37 by using GOTSCOMBOKEA37, the system replied with:

Sorry this keyword is no longer available because we have made this offer more sulit and sakto for you! With the new GoSakto, we have more sites and apps made more affordable for you! Dial *143# and select GoSakto to check them out!

GoSAKTO Surf options

In their SMS reply, GoSAKTO is more sulit and sakto, is it? Let the following screenshots from their Android GoSAKTO app, speak for itself.

  • GoSAKTO unlimited data is worth ₱999.00. (Might as well get a postpaid plan.)
  • 1000MB of data valid for 1 day is ₱60.00
  • 1000MB of data valid for 30 days is ₱300.00

Let’s do a deeper comparison:

The GoSURF+GOTSCOMBO way

  • GS99 gives 30 days of surfing and 200MB of data, with 1 free service of the user’s choice, like 1000MB of free Facebook data for the duration of the GS99 subscription
  • GOTSCOMBOKEA37 gives an additional 1GB of data (technically valid for 1 day only) on top of GS99 (which extends it to the duration of the GS99 subscription)
  • Send additional GOTSCOMBOKEA37 if one needs additional gigabyte of data
  • A 4200MB of data for 30 days will cost ₱284.00
  • A 5200MB of data for 30 days will cost ₱321.00

(2017-01-15 Update: See the alternatives)

The GoSAKTO way

  • GoSAKTO 1000MB for 30 days is worth ₱300.00. In the previous combination (see above), that amount can give users 4200MB for ₱284.00 only or 5200MB for ₱321.00.
  • Or, buy the GoSAKTO 1000MB for 1 day worth ₱60.00. Compare that to GOTSCOMBOKEA37 which is only ₱37.00 for 1 day.

Is GoSAKTO surfing more sulit and sakto?
