Leading telco Globe spreads its global 5G roaming footprint by making the service available in Australia and Indonesia.
Globe 5G service in Australia via Vodafone begun by September 15, whereas services had already launched in Indonesia with partner Telkomsel. Following this, it will also set in Singapore via Starhub earlier this month. By October, Globe will also be covering Greece as the company entered into a similar arrangement with Cosmote.
“While we ramp up the rollout of the Globe 5G network in the country, we also continuously enter into partnerships with telcos worldwide to give our customers the best mobile experience when they travel,” said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International.
Of course, Globe will remain committed to bringing more bandwidth capacity to Filipinos by tapping various network technologies, such as 5G.
The planned introduction in Australia and the recently launched service in Indonesia further widened Globe’s Asia-Pacific 5G coverage. Thus, it now includes Singapore (Singtel and Starhub), Thailand (AIS Thailand), Vietnam (Viettel), China (China Mobile and China Unicom), Hong Kong (CSL), South Korea (KT Corp and SK Telecom), Taiwan (Taiwan Mobile), and Japan (Softbank).
Meanwhile, network partnership with Cosmote will add Greece to European countries where Globe 5G roaming is already available. Other countries in the region that covers its 5G network includes Bulgaria (Vivacom), Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, and Sweden (Telia Company), Italy (Telecom Italia), Switzerland (Swisscom), Czech Republic (O2), and Turkey (Turk Telecom).
Globe is also present in North America and the Middle East, where there are many Filipino migrants and overseas workers.
In this way, Globe Postpaid and Prepaid customers can enjoy a stable Internet whenever they connect to the 5G network of Globe’s partner telcos.
In the same vein, subscribers of Globe’s roaming partners will have access to Globe’s 5G network when they visit the Philippines as long as they are using 5G-enabled phones.
