The Data Volume Allowance is the total megabytes or gigabytes of data that you can use for heavier Internet activities like music or video streaming, downloading/uploading, peer-to-peer file-sharing, VOIP calls and the likes.

Once you consume your data volume allowance for the month, your All-Month Surf browsing service will remain active to cover for your regular online activities. Beyond this, activities like streaming and downloading shall be charged at a rate of Php 5/15 minutes.

You may also choose to acquire Flexibundle Data buckets to be billed on top of your Monthly Service Fee.
