Sun Goes After Globe with New Value Prepaid and Postpaid Offers

What can be more "wonderful" indeed? Hehe. Saw what you did there Sun.

Shots fired!

It looks like the telco network wars are about to pick up again! It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the copy in the ad above is meant for Globe (since they use “wonderful” a lot). Armed with value-driven postpaid and prepaid offers, Sun is making a play to grab market share from their BGC-based competitor.

We scoured their website to see which offers have the banner above. There are a lot but the two most compelling offers are listed below.

Prepaid Offering: CTU100

For prepaid they have a pretty compelling package for just Php100. You get UNLIMITED TEXTS to ALL NETWORKS, Unlimited calls to Sun, Smart, and Talk’N Text, and 100MB of data. This is valid for a whopping 7 days. That’s a pretty sweet deal. If you use it consistently for a month you’ll just have to fork out Php400 for unlimited texts to all networks all month long, unlimited calls to the mentioned networks, and 400MB of data.

Sun Plan 450 Undercuts Globe’s Postpaid Plan 499

On the postpaid front Sun is positioning their Sun Plan 450 against Globe’s 499 MyLifestyle Plan. The chart below, which we found on their website, doesn’t clearly spell this out but the blue color and the inclusions in the 499 package are giveaways.

If you’re wondering what the “FREE ANDROID SMARTPHONE” is, you get a choice between the Huawei Y600 or the O+ 360 Alpha. Getting the smartphone though will lock you in for 24 months. If you’re thinking of getting this plan it might be a better idea to get the O+ 360 Alpha, sell it, add some cash so you can get one of the kick ass phones that we listed under Php9,999.

Now that you think about it, the SRP of the O+ 360 Alpha is Php4,999. Sun would have made this a ridiculously sick and killer deal if they bundled the Alcatel Flash Plus instead (SRP Php6,490). A bit pricier but they could have easily offset that by having a longer lock-in period, hehe. 😛

Sun vs Globe, Round 1… FIGHT!

Gotta love competition. Makes everyone bring down their prices and rates, hehe. It will be interesting to see if Globe will respond with a better offer in the coming days ahead.

Anyway, what do you guys think of these offerings? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Both telcos suck. Been using sun before, pagpasok palang ng pinto ng bahay, wala na agad signal. As for globe, poor customer service, overpriced postpaid plan with a number of low-end handsets to choose from. Sana mabigyan pansin ng kinauukulan ito. Wala nang hindi kurakot sa bansa natin. Ugh.

  2. SUN definitely sucks with their signal and their customer service,its like getting unli calls,txts and internet but will always frustrate you for delayed messages,unclear calls and intermittent connection.GLOBE on the other hand,may not be perfect but they have improve a lot on major aspects like signal,promos and customer servicer especially here in Rizal. Prepaid customer here by the way so cant really comment about postpaidbservices heheh!!

    1. Yes this is true! Sun’s infrastructure now shares with Smart so network is now better than before. Globe has a real competition with Sun.

  3. It’s all about the network preference of your group of friends. Why move in to Sun Cell if ur friends are still with Globe. I remembered before, Dual SIM users pair up Globe and Sun. But lately, only a handful of my contacts retained Sun subscription.

    Maybe they are trying not to compete with globe but to bring back the Globe-Sun dual sim attitude. Just a piece of thought lang with the launching of Glaxy S6 dual and LG G4 dual.

  4. Globe sucks super! Signal and data is so bad and i have to pay 1799 every month for it! Will definitely move to Sun once my contact ends next month!

  5. Kahit ano gawin nila di nila mapapantayan serbisyo ng globe. Jusko naman wala pa sa kalingkingan ng globe ang sun tapos itatapat nila??

  7. Kagaguhan lang. Wala namang maganda sa serbisyo ng sun. Puro sablay,kaya wag na wag nyo ikukumpara sa globe utang na loob

  8. talagang ginagamit pa si drew e noh?? hahaha kahit sino pa kunin nyo na magpromote, di naman ayos network nyo suncellular.

  9. best value po? e may limit naman ang data tapos mabagal pa/ hayyyyy. ano ba naman to. ibahin nyo naman po ang pagbbgay nyo ng serbisyo kasi nagbabayad nman ng maayos ang mga subscribers nyo. #justsaying
