MANILA, Philippines — Globe Telecom Inc. is expanding its 5G roaming services to more countries in Europe in partnership with international telco operators.
Globe expanded its 5G roaming coverage with the recent addition of Belgium, Luxemburg, Spain, and France to serve more Filipino travelers.
The company tied up with Belgium’s Proximus, Luxembourg’s Tango, and Spain’s Telefonica to make the services possible.
The Ayala-led telco said Latvia, Netherlands, and Austria are also expected to join the list in the coming weeks, bringing the number of Globe 5G roaming-ready countries to 40.
Despite the pandemic, Globe continues to explore more partnerships in different parts of the world to ensure that the company can meet the needs of its customers for 5G speeds once it is safe to travel again.
“While we strive to increase Globe’s 5G presence in the Philippines, we are also working hard to widen our footprint for 5G roaming,” Globe vice president for postpaid and international business Coco Domingo said.
“As more smart cities emerge worldwide, we want our customers to experience new ways to connect and engage as they travel. Expect Globe to accelerate its 5G builds abroad as we gear up for travel’s full recovery,” Domingo said.
In the country, Globe is also beefing up its 5G network, having fired up more than 2,000 5G cell sites as of end-November last year.
