It’s so hard going back to your normal routine after such a long holiday. I feel like both my mind and body is still on vacation mode and they aren’t cooperating with me when I told them it’s time to get back to work. I opened my laptop only to stare at it for a few minutes, then closed it again. I needed something new today — a new drink maybe, a new dessert, or maybe I should work on a new area here at home. But the thing is, my internet connection can only reach the second floor. Whenever I’m at the rooftop or at the room on the third floor, I have zilch connection.
Good thing friends from Globe sent me this Globe At Home Prepaid Home Wifi. I think this is now the chance for me to have internet connection at the third floor. Well, I gave it a try today and let me share with you my experience.
Unboxing Globe At Home Prepaid Home Wifi
The Globe at Home Prepaid Home Wifi Kit costs ₱1,999 and it comes with a FREE 10GB data worth ₱349.
The kit contains: Globe At Home Prepaid Home Wifi Modem with SIM installed, Power Adapter, LAN Cable, warranty card, and the Step-By-Step Easy start guide and Reloading Guide.
It is so easy to use! To set it up, you only need to plug the power adapter to the modem and to your electrical socket and wait for the indicator lights.
Once it’s on, it’s time to access the device and activate your FREE data.
- Connect with the modem by scanning your Wireless Network Name and keying in the Wireless network password, both of which can be found at the bottom of the modem
- Enter 192.168.1.1 on the address bar through any web browser
- Log in the username and password, also found at the bottom of the modem.
- Click the SMS tab, and text FREE10GB to 8080. Wait for the confirmation message and you can now start browsing.
It’s so easy, right??
I tried browsing through my laptop and even did a speedtest. Guess what? Download is at 3.18 Mbps and upload is at 17.32 Mbps!
To Load the Globe At Home Prepaid Home Wifi, just buy a prepaid load from any Globe loading station. Log in to 192.168.1.1 and key in your Username and Password. Register to any GoSURF promos by texting the keyword of your preferred offer and send to 8080.
I love that this is also written at the back of the modem so you’ll never be able to forget it.
Globe At Home App

Can you share how’s your experience after the Free 10 GB data? I mean what if I tried to register Supersurf50, and surf and surf and surf. Was it subject on Globe’s Fair Use Policy where the download/upload speed lessen after reaching some limit?

Did you actually try to use Globe At Home App on Play Store? I have installed, got error message after it loaded and I tried to open, uninstalled, tried again with same results. First time I tried to install from my desktop to my mobile. Second time after uninstalling I installed with the mobile. Same results, only the app froze and then went to installing without actually ever installing. Then after a lengthly it eventally “installed” but when clicked open it gave me the “Unfortunately, Globe At Home has stopped”.
I noticed also on the reviews that the reviews are less than favorable. Seems pretty important part of the device in relationship to it’s usefulness if there is not a way to monitor usage.
Wish my results were better. I like the simplicity and the speed. And I like the prepaid. Note: my mobile is a Samsung S4
This is totally new to me. I am not that tech smart but I just happen to have a son who has a masters in computers. He can build anything or write and program. Will has to show him this and see what he has to say about this wifi.
This sounds like a great device. I love the idea of being able to pay for just the amount of WiFi that I need and not pay a huge price for a ton of data that I might not use.
Terri Beavers says
I’ve never heard of this before. It would be great to be able to purchase prepaid wifi. I spend a crazy amount on wifi in my tiny area.
LaToyia Dennis says
Oh wow! This sounds nice. I think I like the FREE portion, but I also like having options to internet services.
Franc Ramon says
I think I should switch to Globe at home prepaid kit. This looks like a good package for my Wifi needs especially with so many online chores.
sara lafountain says
What a great idea this is! I would love to take this with us when we are traveling!
Marissa Zurfluh says
Oh wow, that’s nice that it comes with some free data! Not a bad price for something like that either!
