CLARK FREEPORT - Globe Telecom has launched the first and only service in the country that allows prepaid subscribers to create and customize a prepaid promo that fits their needs, budget, and lifestyle.

GoSakto empowers prepaid subscribers to design their own promo according to what they need, recognizing the fact that customers have different call, text and surfing needs.

With the new promo, customers have the flexibility to tailor-fit their prepaid promo based on what they need for the day, week, or month.


To enjoy their GoSakto promo, subscribers first choose what type of promo to avail - call/text/surf/call and text/call and surf/ or a combination of all.

Once subscribers have chosen their promo, GoSakto further personalizes the experience by letting them select the type and number of calls and texts they need.

Type of call/text can be within the Globe/TM or across all networks, while number can be bulk or unlimited.

For subscribers who need surfing services, they can also choose between bulk (in megabytes or MB of data) or unlimited.

Finally, prepaid subscribers get to pick the validity of the calls, text, and surfing services they availed from one day, three days, seven days, or 30 days.

With its several levels of selection, prepaid subscribers can explore and find the best value GoSakto promo combo in over 2,000 possible combinations, another Globe's first.

There are three easy ways to GoSakto --- via mobile phone via *143#, via the Globe website at, or via Facebook where they can share their promo to their friends via the GoSakto page on the social networking site.

GoSakto even allows subscribers to name their created promo, as well as let their Facebook friends register to the same promo, creating a community of GoSakto users online.

With GoSakto, subscribers are spared from promo availment barriers such as maintaining balance, capping, and limited price points.

A GoSakto promo is available for as low as P7 and can co-exist with another promo, giving subscribers more value for their money.

"We are thrilled to disrupt the prepaid market with yet another innovation that will change the behaviour of today's subscribers when it comes to availing promos," said KD Dizon, head of Globe Prepaid.

“With GoSakto, subscribers will bid pre-made and canned prepaid promos goodbye. NO customer is the same as the other. One would want more voice calls, another is a heavy texter, and the other enjoys browsing. One prefers one-day promos; the other chooses those with longer validity. At the end of the day, you are the only one who truly understand and know your needs when it comes to connecting with your friends, and loved ones," Dizon added.

At the end of 2012, Globe prepaid subscribers reached 16.4 million, up by six percent from previous year despite a highly-challenging prepaid market.

Net incremental subscribers substantially grew in the fourth quarter, registering at almost 300,000 compared to previous quarter with only 33,000. (Reynaldo G. Navales)
