What can you do with 30MB?

On the average, a subscriber with 30MB can enjoy ALL of the following services:

  • 20 social media posts with photo
  • 50 web pages loads
  • 20 plain emails
  • 15 minutes of music streaming
And on the same day Globe Telecom announces that it’s bringing FREEFACEBOOKISBACK.
So, overall this has been a great day for us subscribers – you get free 30 mb internet from smart and free unlimited facebook from globe.
That’s 30 million Filipinos going online again and posting #selfies – no wonder we made news before as the selfie capital – lol.
Whats to say about the Free Facebook from Globe? Although there has been no announcements of when it will happen exactly (sometime next week is my best guess) and what restrictions there is – basing on the last time they had it, its basically free unlimited facebook access.  What else is there to know?
Well, lets just wait for the official announcement from Globe on how to subscribe.
Free Facebook Access from Globe is FREE for all Globe Telecom Subscribers – both prepaid and postpaid via facebook app or browser on your phone. Better right?
So whichever network your on, you actually get something from each, right? Me? I prefer the free unlimited facebook access – why? it’s a part of my job… hehehehe
