Having access to the Internet is one of the privileges of modern life. But in developing countries such as the Philippines, most people don’t have broadband Internet connections, so they usually subscribe to mobile data plans in order to access the Internet. One of the more popular Internet data plans is Globe GoSURF, which includes the GoSURF299 promo.
Globe GoSURF299 is a 30-day mobile data promo that offers 2GB of open access data that you can use to surf the web, as well as 10GB of data for your choice of app bundles. There are four app bundles (GoWATCH&PLAY, GoSHARE&SHOP, GoLISTEN&TRAVEL and GoLEARN&WORK) and each bundle has its own selection of mobile apps that you can access.
GoSURF299 comes with 1GB of data for GoWiFi, which is Globe’s free public WiFi system located at over 2,000 hotspots all over the country. Not only that, your GoSURF299 subscription also entitles you to a free GCash voucher that you can redeem for discounts or freebies at a GCash partner merchant.
GoSURF299 is an excellent Internet data promo for Globe prepaid subscribers who are more interested in accessing their favorite apps than surfing the web. The promo is a great choice for Netflix fanatics since the video streaming service is included in the GoWATCH&PLAY app bundle. Students and teachers can also subscribe to the promo and avail of GoLEARN&WORK to access YouTube Learning, Wikipedia and Zoom. If you love to post on social media, you should choose the GoSHARE&SHOP bundle, but if you prefer to watch movies and play mobile games, then GoWATCH&PLAY is for you.
In this article, we’ll teach you how to register to GoSURF299, redeem your freebies, extend or stop the promo, share your data with friends, and more.
