Globe assures that Filipino travelers abroad will be able to access 5G roaming services when they travel, adding the following countries to its still-growing list of locations: Japan through Softbank, Turkey through Turk Telecom, Switzerland’s Swisscom. O2 Czech Republic, the largest operator in the Czech market, is set to join Globe’s roster of overseas telco partners by August 20.
The company has also partnered with Israel’s Pelephone, so its visiting subscribers from the country may enjoy the benefits of 5G in the Philippines.

Globe Postpaid and Prepaid customers currently abroad and those intending to travel to top destinations worldwide could enjoy a more stable internet with hardly any delay when they connect to the 5G network of Globe’s partner telcos.
Subscribers of Globe’s roaming partners will also have access to Globe’s 5G network when they visit the Philippines as long as they are using 5G-enabled phones in over 1,700 5G locations.
