Due to the recent boom in the topic about FUP the Questions I have posted seem to have gone unanswered as the negative response to the FUP is overwhelming. Now I am trying to get my answers to you my fellow G-tizens of this Community..
To start off, I asked Sir GlennO about the so called UNLIMITED LTE of Globe's Plan 1499 on Blackberry Q10. I asked if the plan will also be subjected to FUP since Sir GlennO was advocating that the "Unlimited Internet" we signed for can have either LTE, 3G, 2G or whatever as long as it has a connection. So I posted this question in the hope of giving him proof that FUP can't be applied to all plans.
His answer was posted on New Mobile Data Fair Use Policy for Postpaid on Feb. 01, 2014, sadly his answer was one of those posts that were deleted/not salvaged when they launched Globe Community 2.0. But because I was receiving Notifications via Email, I was able to save his answer. And here I Quote:
@angelmicx Unlimited LTE is a tier of internet connection. Internet si the general term for mobile data - may it be using2G, 3G, HSPA+, HSDPA, LTE). If your phone isn't capable of LTE or you are in a non-LTE area, it still allows you to surf at lower speeds. The ad just highlights that the phone is capable of connecting to LTE unlike other smartphones that don't have capability of such.
I tried to answer him by saying:
1. Unlimited LTE is indeed a tier of internet connection. That is true.
2. Internet is a general term for mobile data. But LTE is not a general term, it is a SPECIFIC TERM.
3. If either my phone or my location is non-LTE I can still connect with the next best connection. True.
4. The ad just highlights the phone's capability to connect to LTE as opposed to other phones that can't connect on LTE. Now why would you say UNLIMITED LTE if what you mean is LTE CAPABLE PHONE. If you are comparing the CAPABILITY OF THE PHONE, then it would be more logical to use LTE CAPABLE since the opposite of capable is uncapable. If you use UNLIMITED LTE the opposite of that is LIMITED LTE which would mean other phones can still connect albeit just limited. So you see, sir @GlennO your arguement is flawed. Unless of course you tell me that the one who proposed that ad is really terrible in english.
So you guys, what do you think of the phrase "UNLIMITED LTE", does it talk about the capability of the phone, or does it talk about the capability of the connection.
NOTE: GUYS PLEASE NO FLAMING AND FLAME-BAITING. It is not my intention to start a flame war. I just want to know if you have the same view in the matter as I am, or if you could somehow explain how sir GlennO came with his explaination.
