The Unexpected Globe Tattoo 800MB Data Limit

I have the feeling that Globe Tattoo SuperSurf promos are not real unlimited internet. For example, SuperSurf50 unlimited for one day is capped to a certain point. I never know what is the cap limit though. As experience of proof, I am experiencing sudden slow down after watching few YouTube videos. This incidence happens very often.

It is Thursday today. My SuperSurf200 subscription will last until tomorrow, Friday – no office work so I would like to maximize the remaining hours. I have real good land-line connection at home – this surely is useless.

While surfing, I downloaded YouTube music videos one after another. After getting about 15 mp4 videos, a series of messages from 8888 arrived. They are reminding me that I have already used 800MB. I can still use the remaining surfing hours tomorrow subject to acceptable user policy.  My connection was not cut but I wasn’t able to surf any web page. I felt disgusted. I was rushing to finish my school assignment so I can move to other real money work.

Here is the full message copy.

Number: 8888
