Globe taps partners in Europe, North America for 5G roaming
Globe Telecom is expanding 5G roaming partnerships in Europe and the United States, betting on more users shifting to the next-generation mobile technology.
Globe Telecom said it had rolled out 5G roaming in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway and Sweden with Telia Company. By June 3, it will expand to Italy with Telecom Italia.
Within the second quarter of the year, Globe will also launch 5G in Sweden with Swisscom and announce more locations in North America with AT&T.
“Despite the setback in both business and leisure travels caused by the global pandemic, we are firm in our vision for our customers to readily experience the power of 5G technology once the world is open and safe for traveling,” Coco Domingo, Globe vice president for postpaid and international, said in a statement.
Globe’s 5G roaming can be accessed by customers using supported devices.
To date, Globe’s 5G network is available in 16 countries in partnership with 12 telecommunications companies.
These include Kuwait and Qatar through Ooredoo; Saudi Arabia through STC; Taiwan through Taiwan Mobile; Thailand through AIS Thailand; United Arab Emirates through Du and Etisalat; Hong Kong through CSL; South Korea through SK Telecom; Singapore through Singtel; Turkey through Turkcell; and Oman through Omantel. —MIGUEL R.
