I complain about many of Globe services but one that gives me the highest satisfaction level is the Globe Duo Landline for my postpaid cellphone which I subscribed in April 2009. In fact Globe asked if I was willing to give a testimonial and I readily gave it 4 months ago.
During the Ondoy Flood damage, all our landlines were cut naturally (I have both PLDT and Globe lines) and calls needed to be done: the insurance companies of our 3 cars and our home, the service centers of the refrigerator, the oven, washing machine and other services needed for the cleaning of the house. What convenience that was.
Now when I heard the latest news from Globe Duo (via Yugatech), I eagerly read their upgrade:
Subscribers of Globe Duo (399/30 days) can now upgrade to SuperDuo for Php499/30 days. SuperDuo allows you to make unlimited landline calls as well as unlimited calls to all Globe and Touch Mobile phones nationwide. You cannot call a DUO landline number in another region though but you can call their cellphone number.
I tried just a few hours ago.
I sent a text to 8888 superduo help
and the reply was
