Customizable and innovative offers’ Globe Prepaid GoSakto and TM Extend gain traction in prepaid market
Globe Telecom continues to strengthen its share in the prepaid market as it gained more prepaid subscribers in the first quarter of 2013 amidst the aggressive acquisition strategies of its competitors.
The Ayala-led telco added over 506,000 subscribers during the period for its Globe Prepaid brand, up 32% and 71% from last year and last quarter, respectively. This brought year-to-date Globe Prepaid subscribers to about 16.9 million, 7% higher than last year’s 15.8 million and 3% above previous quarter’s 16.4 million.
Meanwhile, its mass market brand TM gained close to 1.4 million subscribers, almost three times the level in the same period last year and almost twice the level in the previous quarter. As a result, net subscriber additions, including postpaid, increased substantially to 2.0 million, more than double last year’s level of about 984,000 and 90% higher than previous quarter’s 1.1 million net incremental subscribers.
As of end-March 2013, Globe total prepaid subscriber base stood at 33.3 million, up 13 percent year-on-year from 29.5 million the previous year, with the TM subscriber base growing by 20% on the back of affordable and competitive voice, SMS, and mobile internet offers for the DE market.
“Our mobile business remains fundamentally strong and continues to be in an uptrend given the success of the programs that we have implemented particularly, the revolutionary customizable plans that are now being enjoyed by our prepaid subscribers. With Globe GoSakto, gone are the days where subscribers have to content themselves with pre-made or canned promos. You can now create, customize, and design your very own prepaid promo based on your liking, plus name it and share it on Facebook,” said KD Dizon, Head of Globe Prepaid.
In the first quarter of the year, Globe Prepaid unveiled its GoSakto service, a game-changing innovation that lets prepaid subscribers create their own prepaid promo from scratch and choose the type and number of calls, texts and data they need for the day, week, or month, based on their needs, budget, and lifestyle. Globe Prepaid subscribers can also name their promo and share it on Facebook. Subscribers can create their GoSakto promo via the self-service menu *143#, the Globe website at www.globe.com.ph/gosakto, or the GoSakto Facebook App at apps.facebook.com/gosakto.
According to Issa Cabreira, Head of TM, the ‘astig’ brand of Globe will continue its commitment of providing innovative and affordable promos. “We understand that our subscribers value their hard-earned money, that is why TM is committed to give subscribers value for money promos like the TM Extend that stretch the life of any TM promo for only P5, a cost that’s definitely easy on the pocket of every Filipino,” Cabreira said.
TM, the mass market brand of Globe has strengthened its position in the market with its customized offers and promos especially in the regions, where it has steadily attracted a strong base of consumers who look for value-for-money call, text and mobile internet services.
TM broke new ground with its own innovation: TM EXTEND, a service that extends the validity of its best-selling promos by 24 hours. Subscribers can now enjoy connections with friends and family even if they have only P5.00 to spare for the day. The mass market brand also launched a new denomination for its AstigFB mobile internet service to provide subscribers with unlimited Facebook usage for 2 days for only P15.

Postpaid subscriber base nearing 2 million!
Led by its fully-customizable postpaid plans and the most competitive smartphone offers, Globe Telecom’s postpaid business sustained momentum with double-digit growth in subscriber base and revenues in the first quarter of 2013, with postpaid customer base nearing 2 million.
As of end-March 2013, Globe postpaid subscribers totaled 1.9 million, a 21% increase from previous year’s 1.5 million with gross acquisitions soaring to a record-high of over 205,000 in the first quarter, up 35% and 40% against the same period last year and last quarter, respectively. Net postpaid additions also increased to a quarterly high of over 122,000 during the period, surpassing last year’s level by 44% and last quarter’s performance by 71%.
The segment likewise showed outstanding growth in service revenues after posting P6.0 billion in revenues during the same period, up 14% from P5.3 billion in the previous year. Postpaid service revenues in 1Q 2013 account for 35% of total mobile revenues, up from 32% in 1Q12.
“With successive quarters of growth in subscriber base and revenues, Globe Postpaid continues to provide solid contribution to the company’s overall mobile business,” said Martha Sazon, Head of Globe Postpaid. “Postpaid customers have become more discerning over the years as they look for offers that are relevant and give them value for money. So when it comes to postpaid, subscribers choose Globe and stay with Globe.”
Keeping momentum to grow its postpaid segment in the second quarter of the year, Globe strengthened partnerships with device manufacturers and offered the best smartphone deals. The telco gained exclusivity to carry the new BlackBerry Z10 LTE under its suite of unlimited surfing plans that provide subscribers with unlimited LTE surfing of up to 42 Mbps. The BlackBerry Z10 LTE is available for as low as P1799 monthly over a 30-month contract or P1999 monthly over a 24-month contract.
In April, Globe unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4 and offered the newest Galaxy smartphone for as low as P1,599 monthly under the best-ever Globe My Super Plan 999 with P600 monthly cashout over a 24-month contract period, giving customers the most affordable and competitive device bundle offer in the market today. Under this best-ever offer, subscribers get unlimited LTE surfing of up to 42 Mbps plus free calls and texts.
In conjunction with its device launches, Globe further upped the ante in postpaid with the launch of the best-ever My Super Plan, where subscribers get more than what they pay for with postpaid plans now bundled with peso value amounts that are almost double the plan value. The peso value amount can be allocated among combos in the form of call, text, and surfing services, consumable amount, and gadgets. Subscribers also have the flexibility to choose their contract periods ranging from 6 months to 30 months.
With its breakthrough and revolutionary offers, Globe My Super Plan was awarded as the Most Innovative Telecom Project in the 16th Telecom Asia Awards, besting telco products from Japan, Singapore, Korea, and Indonesia to win the much-coveted award given to an innovative project with the biggest impact in the market.

A suspected phone cable thief was recently arrested by a joint police and personnel of Globe Telecom's Task Force Bantay Kable in Pampanga.
The suspect, identified as Harold Hombrebueno , a resident of Mabalacat City, faces criminal charges for theft of copper cables. Hombrebueno was arrested April 20 after he was caught in possession of cut cable copper wire estimated to worth PHP250,000.
Based on police records, four suspects were seen dismantling and cutting into pieces telephone cable wires during surveillance conducted along a grassy vacant lot at Northville 16, Barangay Atlu-bola in Mabalacat. Witnesses immediately informed authorities and a police team was dispatched in the area.
Upon seeing police personnel, the suspects immediately attempted to flee the area and police was able to arrest one suspect, Hombrebueno. Police later identified one other suspect, Wilson Honra, who still remains at large along with the other two.
Police said there has been a series of cable theft incidents within the area in previous months.
“We will continue to intensify our efforts to put a stop to cable theft. This is a major problem for us because of its impact on service,” said Ronald Uychutin, Head of Globe Security, Anti Fraud and Investigation Division, noting such illegal activities result in disruption of service and contribute to connection problems experienced by mobile and broadband subscribers.
“Cable thief has extensive impact not only to telecommunication companies like Globe but also to the subscribing public. The delay and disruption of services should be addressed not only by telco providers but also by the public,” Uychutin emphasized.
Uychutin added that Globe Telecom will continue to coordinate with local government units concerned as well as police concerned in addressing the problem.

Nakaka-sad at nakakagulat naman ang nabalitaan kong break na pala sina Venus Raj at Andrei Felix. Syempre tayong lahat naging witness kung gaano nila ka-love ang isa't isa sa level na parang sa kasalan na talaga mauuwi ang relasyon nila.
According to my reliable source, Venus's manager - the beauty queen maker Jonas Gaffud, April 29 daw ata nagbreak ang dalawa sa kadahilanang hindi pa rin masyado malinaw sa ngayon.

For the first time, after pumutok ang gulo sa pamilya nila, ay humarap na sa publiko kanina si Gretchen Barretto bilang co-host ng The Buzz. Inabangan ng lahat ang magiging pahayag ni Gretchen.
Bago pa ang actual segment kung saan pinag-usapan ang tungkol sa kinasasangkutan niyang banggaan ngayon, napansin na ng marami ang pagiging emotional ng aktres. Sa isang portion ay mismong ang The Buzz host pang si Toni ang pumansin na naiiyak na ang aktres, matapos mapanood ang kwento tungkol sa pagbabati ni Kim Chiu at ng ama nito.
Sa bandang huli nga, kung saan pinag-usapan na nila ang isyu ng mga Barretto, ay hindi na napigilan ni Gretchen na maiyak habang ipinapaalam sa lahat ang kanyang saloobin.
|The very emotional Gretchen Barretto, after speaking up on The Buzz about the rift between her and her family now.|
“Hindi madali ang pinagdadaanan ko ngayon. Hindi madali na pinag-uusapan ka ng buong Pilipinas. Hindi madaling pakinggan 'yung pinagdaanan ko, 'yung childhood ko. [Pero] away pamilya ito, hindi dapat isapubliko,” umiiyak na panimula ng aktres.
“I learned this week that a tight embrace means the world to me. I learned that madami din palang nagmamahal sa akin. I also learned that life is not perfect and I can’t have everything. Dominique, my daughter, knows my story. Many years from now, lilingunin niya itong nangyari sa akin. Maaalala ni Dominique na my mom never fought and that's what's important for me. That's what I want to leave behind,” deklara ni Gretchen.
Bilang nasa studio ng The Buzz sa buong panahong nangyayari ito, lahat din kami ay hindi makapagsalita dahil ramdam na ramdam namin ang sakit na iniinda ni Gretchen ngayon. Labis siyang nasasaktan sa nangyayari. Kaya sana, sana... maaayos pa ang gulo sa pamilya nila.
"I'll always be here for you to protect you, kaya wag ka mag-alala," Gerald Anderson to Maja Salvador
Kinilig ang lahat ng sumusuporta kina Maja Salvador at Gerald Anderson sa kanilang moment kanina sa ASAP 18, kung saan nag-celebrate ang aktres ng kanyang 10th anniversary sa showbiz. Nag-walk in after ng bonggang number niya her rumored boyfriend Gerald, sabay abot sa kanya ng sabi nga ni Ge kasing-height niyang bouquet of flowers.

"Happy anniversary sa'yo. Deserved mo lahat ng blessings na mayroon ka, lahat ng fans mo. Napakabait mo sa pamilya mo, sa akin, kaya deserved mo lahat yan," sabi ng aktor sa aktres. Mas lalo pang kinilig ang lahat nang idagdag nitong, “and I'll always be here for you to protect you, kaya wag ka mag-alala.”
Nakakatuwa naman dahil bakas na bakas din sa mukha ni Maja ang saya, na sinabi naman kay Gerald na "thank you dumating ka sa buhay ko."

Samantala, after an hour ago ay pinost naman ni Maja sa kanyang Instagram account ang picture niya with the lifesize bouquet of flowers, at confirmed ngang ka-height niya raw ito. Nagtanggal pa siya ng heels para magkaalaman talaga. Ang cute!
