Globe Expands Roaming Coverage in Japan


Globe Telecom reaches out to Filipinos traveling to, and are based in Japan with DUO International, which is the pioneering calling service that makes international calls more affordable.

Each Globe or TM mobile subscriber will be assigned a Japanese number by DUO Japan so calls coming from Japan to Philippines will no longer be charged the usual rate. Moreover, Filipino families will no longer need an internet connection or any special gadget to stay in touch, since they can make calls any time and anywhere at a very reasonable rate.

DUO International is also available in the U.S., Canada, UK, and South Korea. Similar to DUO Japan, a local number for these countries will also be provided for registered Globe and TM subscribers. This service can be availed of via the DUO international website and subscribers can choose paying through a Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card, or they can register directly via SMS through 8888 but the subscriber must have an at least PHP 400 worth of load credits in his/her account.
