The company noted that this GigaRoam provides more data allocation with extended validity. It is designed to give roamers seamless connectivity while abroad. This service could be useful, as this year, the world prepares to ease travel restrictions amid the worldwide vaccine rollout.

5G, the latest evolution of wireless communications, brings our customers closer to an even higher level of customer experience in terms of enjoying high-definition video, playing esports and using new digital services, said Alfredo S. Panlilio, Smart Communications President and CEO and PLDT Chief Revenue Officer. With international partnerships such as this, we continue our journey toward bringing world-class service to the Filipino people.

We are happy to partner with KT in providing 5G connectivity for Smart subscribers who are traveling in South Korea, said Alice Ramos, Vice President for International Roaming and Consumer Business at Smart. South Korea remains to be a top roaming destination for Filipino business and leisure travelers and 5G roaming speeds mean faster upload of travel blogs and videos, faster download speeds for K-Drama videos popular with the Filipino market, and seamless data connectivity for work-productivity apps.

Smart noted that it plans to launch more 5G roaming partnerships to provide world-class roaming services to travelers.

KT and Smart are members of the CONEXUS Mobile Alliance, which is composed of 9 member-telcos in Asia who claim to be at the forefront of delivering innovative, customer-friendly services for customers of member operators who frequently travel on business.

CONEXUS is currently chaired by Katrina Luna-Abelarde, President and CEO at PLDT Global and head of International and Carrier Business.

The group has continued to laydown roaming service improvements for international travelers despite being the worst-hit telecom division by COVID-19.
