Globe soon to provide VoLTE Roaming?

In a statement, the telco said the tests were conducted with Airtel of India, mirroring its capacity to support outbound and inbound VoLTE Roaming.

The Ayala-led company said VoLTE delivers faster call setup times and clearer voice quality than 2G and 3G.

Explaining the reason behind this move, Globe said a number of telecom companies in other countries are planning to retire their 2G and 3G networks to make way for more efficient 4G and 5G networks. Once completed, this would mean that its international roaming customers would "no longer be able to make and receive traditional voice calls or send and receive text messages."

Globe will continue to innovate and invest in new technologies to ensure that our customers have the best service. We are excited to roll out VoLTE Roaming and provide them with a seamless and enjoyable experience while traveling in foreign destinations, said Coco Domingo, Globe Vice President for Postpaid and International Business.

In the meantime, as Globe builds its VoLTE roaming, subscribers can subscribe to data roaming offers that allow them to make and receive calls and messages through Over-the-top (OTT) apps such as Viber, WhatsApp, and Messenger.
