Globe E-load rip-off

In our country which is dominantly inhabited by people who fall under or just within the borderline of poverty, owning a cellphone seems to be a luxury available only to those who can afford it. But this is not at all true.

In comes electronic load

With the onset of cheap and surplus cellphones sold in almost every cellphone shop, almost everyone--peanut vendors, tricycle drivers, vegetable & fish vendors, students or just about anyone already owns a cellphone. But cellphones are nothing without load. Now comes the problem of maintaining a load balance which could really impact one's budget. Those who can afford to buy load cards will not have to worry about not being able to send messages during very crucial times. Now comes what we call the e-load or electronic loading which is actually meant for people with little or no budget for this kind of luxury. Anyone can have a load with only ten pesos, the amount of one tricycle fare ride.

super budget load

But wait, this is not enough. One can even register for super unlimited use for a day for only a few pesos. But then again, users could end up losing some money when the e-load does not reach his phone. One may receive a notification that you received the load, but reality is, there is no load and your money is lost and wasted. There is no way of complaining because the small store from where you bought the load has the confirmation that the load had been sent to you. Isn't that robbery in broad daylight? And that is Globe for you.

Do you mean Globe telecom? you are Filipino too?..everything you said here is right and that is my own observation too...we make these companies rich but they make us poor with their poor services.
