What is the actual data experience for 5G roaming services?
For Globe subscribers traveling internationally and latching onto a 5G network, 5G speed is dependent on the roaming partner, but on average can reach up to 150Mbps. This can also be affected by:
Your proximity to a 5G cellsite which has a bearing on both your indoor and outdoor coverage
Whether or not the roaming partner's frequency/network band supports your 5G device's network band
Your data roaming subscription
For foreign tourists, on your visit to the Philippines, Globe's 5G speed can reach up to 100 Mbps and this can be affected by:
Your proximity to a 5G cellsite which has a bearing on both indoor and outdoor coverage
Whether or not the frequency/network band of your 5G device is supported by Globe
Your data roaming subscription
When I go abroad, how will I know if my destination country has 5G roaming?
To enjoy 5G roaming, make sure of the following:
- Your SIM is 4G/LTE
- The network mode in your phone setting is set to 5G
- If you're a postpaid customer, your data roaming and mobile data must be turned ON to automatically activate Roam Surf399
- If you're a prepaid customer, register to a Roam Surf promo via the GlobeOne app
- You're in a 5G-enabled area
Prior to your departure, check if your 5G device's frequency/network band is supported by the roaming partner in your destination country. You may also check your phone's frequency band from your phone manufacturer's website.
Upon your arrival abroad, you'll know you're in a 5G-enabled zone when you see the 5G icon displaying on your smartphone.
You'll be able to enjoy 5G roaming on your Roam Surf promo at no extra charge.
5G roaming won't interfere when you make IDD calls but your device will automatically shift its signal to 3G or 4G/LTE during a call and revert to 5G after.
