By August, it will also partner with Tele2 of Sweden and Vivo of Brazil.

“We continuously build partnerships with telcos from all over the world so we can provide our customers with better data roaming experience at affordable costs, wherever they may be,” said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International.
To experience 5G roaming, Globe postpaid subscribers only have to turn on mobile data and data roaming on their device settings. There is no need to register. Prepaid users may enjoy various roaming promos by registering via the GlobeOne or GCash apps or dialing *143#.
5G can be experienced through affordable Globe roaming promos such as Roam Surf 399 for Postpaid and Prepaid subscribers and its new call and text add-on Roam Surf Plus. Roamers only need to ensure that they are within Globe’s 5G partner locations and are using 5G-enabled mobile devices or handsets.
Meanwhile, Globe’s partnerships with select globally renowned telco operators will allow their subscribers who visit the Philippines to enjoy 5G roaming as long as they are using 5G-enabled phones in 5G locations. To know more about our 5G-ready telco partners, visit glbe.co/5GRoaming.
