“As we continue to partner with more 5G-ready telcos around the world, our goal is always to deliver a high-speed data roaming experience that’s convenient and easy to use so our customers can safely navigate and stay in control even while abroad during this time,” said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International.

Globe subscribers can avail of 5G roaming services by registering to Roam Surf 399 that has all-day data for Postpaid and 1GB for Prepaid.
