KB vs Time

Just learned today that Globe has two charging schemes for Internet browsing.

  • KB Browsing Rate
    This kind of charging is best for info-based browsing like browsing for the latest news or movie schedules, searching online dictionaries and checking sports stats. Since you are charged only P0.15/kb, a search for the definition to a puzzling word would only cost P2.30 while checking that movie schedule would only cost about P1.62.
  • Time Browsing Rate
    This charging scheme is best used for multimedia-based activities like sending and receiving files through email or even viewing pictures and videos. All these are done more affordably when you use Time Charging at P5 for 15minutes.

I think I will send KB to 1111 when trying to feed my GPS status live online.
