Globe expands 5G roaming services to Australia, Indonesia, Greece

Globe Telecom Inc. continues its push for 5G leadership as it expands its 5G roaming services to Australia, Indonesia and Greece.

The Ayala-led telco partnered with Vodafone to make available its 5G service in Australia beginning September 15.

It also teamed up with Indonesia’s Telkomsel and Singapore’s Starhub in Singapore earlier this month.

Next month, Globe, through a tie-up with Cosmote, will add Greece to European countries where Globe 5G roaming is already available. This 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 committed to bringing more bandwidth capacity to Filipinos by tapping various forms of technologies like 5G.

The planned introduction in Australia and the recently launched service in Indonesia further widened Globe’s Asia-Pacific 5G coverage that currently 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).

Globe is also present in North America and the Middle East, where there are many Filipino migrants and overseas workers.
