THE Philippines has already reopened its borders to international travelers to help the local business and tourism industries recover as restrictions in travel and mobility ease up.
And to make their roaming communications needs more seamless and worry-free, Globe announced that it is making Globe 5G mobile services available to visitors from 39 countries.
Among the countries where Globe has inbound roaming partnerships include Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, USA, and Vietnam.
Through its ongoing network upgrade and expansion, Globe enables tourists to experience 5G services in major Philippine destinations. Its 5G network now covers 93 percent of the National Capital Region.
The service is also available in Rizal, Bulacan, Batangas, Camarines Sur, Cavite, Laguna, Oriental Mindoro, and Quezon in Luzon; Aklan, Cebu, Iloilo, and Negros Occidental in Visayas; and Bukidnon, Davao Del Sur, Misamis Oriental, South Cotabato, and Zamboanga del Sur in Mindanao.
5G provides up to 100 times faster speed than 4G and offers very low latency and higher bandwidth. As a result, it opens a world of countless possibilities that travelers can look forward to.
“Being the preferred choice of tourists traveling to the country, we want to make sure that we can give them instant and seamless connectivity. They can take advantage of the convenience and benefits that 5G can offer by latching on to Globe’s 5G network,” said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International Business.
To enable Globe 5G inbound roaming, foreign tourists should see to it that their SIM and devices are 5G-ready.
Before arrival, they should check the compatibility of their device frequency band with Globe’s 5G Network and ensure that the data roaming subscription in their home networks allows 5G surfing.
On the other hand, Globe Postpaid and Prepaid customers currently abroad and those planning to travel outside the Philippines could also enjoy 5G roaming in 44 Globe 5G roaming-ready countries, including Iceland (via partner Nova).
Globe also continues to explore more partnerships in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific to cement its supremacy in the 5G roaming space.
To experience 5G Roaming, postpaid customers can simply turn on their mobile data and data roaming to activate RoamSurf 399 for one-day all-day data access. Prepaid customers can register to RoamSurf 399 via GlobeOne or GCash apps to enjoy 1GB data roaming access for 24 hours.
For extended trips abroad, Globe offers Roam Surf Longer Stay, which gives customers more GBs for all-access surfing and longer validities. They can choose from 3, 5, 7, 15, and 30-day data packs.

Globe continues to improve and expand its service towards digital enablement as part of its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development.
