G-Pass (mis) adventureSaw the Globe G-Pass Ad yesterday on TV. So just a few minutes ago I asked the cashier at the MRT North vending station if I could buy one. Surprise, "hangang Cubao pa lang yon", the kind lady answered. I looked around and noticed that indeed this station doesn't have yet the G-pass interface.
That means G-pass usage is still limited, and that you can't enter on a G-pass enable station and alight at stations like MRT north station where the interface is not yet in-place.
Curious how the reloading of G-pass would be implemented. Via G-cash at the MRT stations? Or via OTA? Either way, if its going to on top of SMS infrastructure, its still bound to the issues I discussed before.
Cmon' Smart, (*hint*, *hint*, *hint*) you have the debit card-swipe thing, join the fun!
And before I forget, interface-wise, I still think Smart money has the edge over G-Cash. They are just not as aggressive on the innovation front.
