    ... so in effect it will affect only the...
    "5 percent of abusive subscribers (who) use 80 percent of the available broadband Internet bandwidth"...
    ... in order to..
    "ensure consistency and reliability of connection for use of the greater majority of broadband subscribers,.."

    ... sana ganun nga ang mangyari...

    ^in short the more sites you visit, the more data you've downloaded, such as loading of websites and watching online video streams and downloading the higher the bandwidth you consume. So may limit na silang 1GB per day kung average internet user ka pwede ito, pero kung internet soho ka hindi pwede dahil 30minutes pa lang ubos na yan.

  5. hmmm, ibig sbhin pag nareach mu 1gig slow down na net speed mu?
    globe wimax ba ksma rin sa policy na to? last august pa ako ngpakbit neto eh..

    ^ yes sir every download nyo ng data, for example visited a site, the logos, images, and info eh dinadownload to your temp file para maview nyo sa browser meaning usage of bandwidth na yun :)

    crap .. that kinda sucks .. oh well .. kelan daw nila i-i-implent 'to?

    pero parang nde rin tama na gawin nila yun lalo na yung kung work mo revolves around viewing different websites.

    This is a big joke. Globe should say goodbye to their subscribers.
