Globe has further expanded its 5G roaming footprint to include the Netherlands, Bahrain, and New Zealand as it continues to explore more partnerships in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific amid gradual economic recovery from the impact of the pandemic.
These latest additions cement Globe’s supremacy in the 5G space as it is now present in 43 5G roaming-ready countries. Just last month, Globe included Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, and France in its list of roaming partners.
“While we strive to increase Globe’s 5G presence in the Philippines, we are also working hard to widen our footprint for 5G roaming,” said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International Business.
“As more smart cities emerge worldwide, we want our customers to experience new ways to connect and engage as they travel. Expect Globe to accelerate its 5G builds abroad as we gear up for travel’s full recovery,” Domingo said.
Globe customers will enjoy 5G roaming when they connect via Zain in Bahrain, Vodafone in New Zealand, and KPN in the Netherlands.
To experience 5G Roaming, Postpaid customers can simply turn on their mobile data and data roaming to activate RoamSurf 399 for all-day data access for 1 day. Prepaid customers can register to RoamSurf 399 via GlobeOne or GCash apps to enjoy 1GB of data roaming access for 24 hours.
For extended trips abroad, Globe also offers Roam Surf Longer Stay which gives customers more GBs for all-access surfing, bigger savings, and longer validities.

5G technology provides higher speed, lower latency, and greater capacity than 4G LTE networks.
Last year, Globe spent an all-time high P92.8 billion in capital expenditures to prepare its network for the post-pandemic era. Aside from building 1,407 new cell sites and installing over 1.4 million fiber-to-the-home lines, Globe also fired up over 2,000 5G outdoor sites and in-building solutions.
This year, the digital solutions provider committed P89 billion in capital expenditures.
