Globe Telecom this announced that it 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.

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.
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.
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.
