Globe POWERSURF 99 is Sulit! Why Not Offer It to Prepaid Subscribers Too?

Imagine: For just 99 Pesos, you get Facebook and Twitter on the go on your smartphone for a whole month. You can even do thousands of Google searches, watch a few videos on Youtube and browse a few mobile websites.

If Globe POWERSURF 99 isn't sulit, I don't know what else to call it. I mean, if you're the type of user who just wants to be able to update your FB and Twitter status messages everywhere you go, then this promo is ideal for you.

TP Thoughts:

I wonder why Globe won't offer this promo to prepaid subscribers. Is this some kind of incentive for users to subscribe to postpaid?

I actually think this promo can greatly help Globe grow its prepaid subscribers base. A lot of students and yuppies - thanks to their smartphones - are now discovering the wonders of being connected on the go and are looking for affordable ways that they can do it. And let's face it, a hundred bucks for a whole month of even just Twitter and Facebook is a totally attractive offer.

Come on, Globe! Give POWERSURF 99 to prepaid subscribers too! :)
