Globe continues to expand its 5G network globally with the launch of its outbound 5G roaming service in the United Arab Emirates. Inbound roaming services, which allow subscribers of other operators to access Globe’s 5G network and services, are also set to commence this month.

Globe through its partnership with Du Telecom in UAE, Filipinos abroad will be able to stay connected and enjoy the convenience and quality that 5G connectivity brings.

The Gulf state is one of the top destinations for Overseas Filipino Workers in the Middle East, which is a regional trading and tourism hub.

Last February, Globe also made another milestone with its debut of the 5G roaming service in Thailand, in collaboration with roaming ally and Thailand’s largest telco, AIS. Roamers are assured of uninterrupted connectivity and fastest speeds wherever they are in Thailand as 5G coverage in the country extends to all its 77 provinces.


“We understand that traveling is challenging at the moment given the health crisis, but we recognize that there are Filipinos who still need to leave the safety of their homes to fulfill responsibilities overseas. We want to assure them of instant and seamless connectivity in countries with Globe’s 5G roaming service,” said KD Dizon, Globe’s Head for Consumer Mobile Business.

Once travel resumes, Globe roamers with 5G-powered smartphones can elevate their travel experiences with 5G’s lightning-fast speeds and uninterrupted connection within 5G-ready areas. Through HD quality video calls and seamless live streaming of their adventures on social media, customers will also be able to stay connected while traveling abroad. All these can be experienced with Globe’s Roam Surf 399 (all-day for Postpaid, 1GB for Prepaid) and other Roam Surf promos with no additional charge.

5G’s unbeatable speeds and almost real-time latency opens a world of countless possibilities that travelers can look forward to as more and more international destinations transform themselves into 5G-powered smart cities, delivering new experiences in retail, entertainment, and healthcare.

Globe is a pioneer in 5G supremacy in the Philippines with 1,069 areas across the country now with this latest generation in wireless technology.  Owing to the company’s aggressive network builds and site upgrades, Globe was able to increase its 5G presence.

As of January this year, Globe’s 5G coverage is present in 848 locations in Metro Manila and Rizal; and in 221 areas in Visayas and Mindanao.

Currently, Globe is working towards rolling out its 5G roaming services in more key markets in Asia, Middle East, North America, and Europe with the help of its roaming partners. For more information on 5G Roaming, go to glbe.co/5GRoaming.
