Globe Mobile Internet lets you make your own rules with a MegaByte

If part of your daily life is surfing on your mobile phone, then you would be thrilled to know that Globe, dubbed as the as the most popular service provider for mobile internet services in the Yahoo! Net Index 2011, now gives you full control of your mobile browsing with its innovative megabyte (MB)-based data plans.

An MB is a unit used to measure data for internet-related activities, such as mobile surfing. Remember that everything we do on the internet requires data, such as sending an e-mail, downloading an application, posting a status on Facebook, tweeting, uploading photos and streaming videos, searching Google, browsing movie schedules, or chatting with friends.
