Missing option for prepaid connection for Philippines Globe Telecom

Bug Description


At the moment there is only one selectable option for Globe Telecom, which is named "Internet". This option works only for postpaid customers. Prepaid customers must use a different APN which address is "http.globe.com.ph".

My proposal for this provider is to rename the option "Internet" to "Postpaid" and introduce another option named "Prepaid", which uses the above APN.
