Globe Telecommunication will launch the new long term evolution (LTE) roaming service abroad in collaboration with China Mobile Hong Kong and in Korea through its tie up with South Korea based SK Telecom.
Claimed to be the first telecommunications firm to offer LTE data roaming, the firm will enable its postpaid subscribers abroad to avail high-speed connection which they currently obtain in the Philippines.
Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu said that the firm leverages on its partnership with the two carriers to make the LTE data roaming experience smooth for its postpaid subscribers who will be the first to access the superior browsing experience from this service.
"We are also working with IPX providers Sybase, Aicent, Syniverse, Citic, Tata, and BICs to allow us to scale up our LTE roaming partnerships with operators from Australia, Singapore, US, Japan, Canada, and the Middle East. We look forward to reaching these countries in the coming months," Cu said.
