Globe tattoo USB broadband stick is one of the best products that a Philippine Telco has ever offered its customers. It is handy and the signal strength here in the city is not that bad. I usually subscribe to the 1 day unlimited surfing offer of Globe name SUPERSURF50, which to me is fairly just fro 24 hours unlimited surfing.
However, the only thing I hate about Globe tattoo is the 1Gb (1 gigabits) download limit per day. I download movies and songs to my laptop so I always end up being disconnected after some 5-6 hours of usage, then I have to wake up at midnight to continue the download.
You may have reached this page because you think you could do something to bypass the 1Gb download limit of Globe tattoo. Unfortunately, I have to tell you that you can't. Globe uses network monitoring software such as the one below to measure the data (bits in and bits out) being sent and received by a Globe tattoo subscriber.
Not that they have to visually see their thousands of Globe tattoo users, but they have an automated system that could tell when the download limit has been reached. The system then limits the data rate for the user to a very minimum and useless 1kbps or so, then send a message to the user telling them they have reached the maximum download rate.
Will VPNs work?
No. The concept is the same. The data being sent is measured, even if it is encrypted (FYI, that's how VPNs work).
All of these are taken from the perspective of a network engineer. So, am I saying that it is impossible to bypass the 1Gb download limit of Globe tattoo? No! The following months, I will be doing my research on how to engineer the network to achieve this. You can subscribe to this website or check out soon.
