 Happy Hours 1. What is HAPPY HOURS and how does it work?

HAPPY HOURS  is a built-in product feature in all wi-tribe 4G broadband products that increases your GB usage allowance to up to 4x of your plan, if usage is between off-peak hours of 1am – 7am.

This means you get a 75% discount on your actual usage and only 25% of your actual usage will be deducted from your monthly usage allowance.

Here is an example if you use all your monthly usage allowance during HAPPY HOURS:

  • MOVE UP Plan 998 can increase your 6GB monthly usage allowance to a maximum of 24GB!
  • MOVE UP Plan 1998 can increase your 12GB monthly usage allowance to a maximum of  48GB!
HAPPY HOURS 1am to 7am is the time wi-tribe gives its tribers access to heavy peer-to-peer internet activities.*

*Tribers are reminded against use of peer-to-peer technology and sites for copyright-infringing activities.

2. Can I still do heavy internet activities during peak hours?

Yes, you can still do heavy internet activities during peak hours such as video streaming, listening to internet radio, running direct downloads and uploading, except for peer-to-peer activities like torrents.

To ensure all wi-tribe subscribers get a fast and reliable service, heavy peer-to-peer internet activities* may only be done during HAPPY HOURS.   Peer-to-peer activities use up a lot of bandwidth thus affecting the speeds of the broadband connection for all wi-tribe subscribers.

Here’s a tip on peer-to-peer use – to further maximize wi-tribe HAPPY HOURS:

If you are using torrents or other free peer-to-peer file sharing client, make sure that the files you want to download have a good number of seeds.  The higher number of seeds, the faster the download rate will be.  Take note that even if your connection is running at optimum speeds, the download rate will still depend on the number of peers sharing the file. The stability of your peers’ network and the host server you are downloading from may also affect your actual download speed.

*Tribers are reminded against use of peer-to-peer technology and sites for copyright-infringing activities.

3. How do I avail of this feature?

All you have to do is enjoy it since HAPPY HOURS is a built-in product feature in all wi-tribe 4G Broadband plans.
