Globe Powersurf bucket charging (per MB or data usage) now available for prepaid , how to register

Initially, bucket charging or per data usage  via Globe Powersurf is only available for Postpaid subscribers
I’ve been using Powersurf (ranging from 15/30/50) for my mobile internet needs as its more flexible than the regular P5 / 15mins charging when you are not registered to any data promos. Today is different though because after registering for powersurf 15, I receive the message displayed on the side
To continue your registration to POWERSURF<15/30/50>, text TIME <15/30/50) to 8888for <1/3/5> hours of mobile internet consumed per minuted OR text MB<15/30/50> to 8888 for <20/50/100>MB of mobile internet consumed per KB. Valid for <1/1/3> days upon successful registration.
at first, I thought that my subscription to mobile internet go back to KB charging which is damn expensive before but after careful reading, I realize that even though its per KB in charging, its still cheap because of the 20,50 or 100 mb cap. Perfect for twitter, facebook or Instant messaging on the go. I can now go online 24/7 on my phone while paying only P500 every 30 days (P50 pesos every 3 days) with a total of 1000mb or 1gb of data usage.
for MB100 with 100mb of data usage for P50,  P0.0005/KB is the charging.
