Globe Telecom is now offering all major global over-the-top (OTT) messaging services for free as part of its core call and text bundle.
Globe Telecom recently unveiled its first unlimited bundle, with unlimited calls, short messaging services (SMS) and OTT messaging apps for P30 a day.
“Globe is at the forefront of innovation once again as the first telco in the world to bundle our unlimited call and text service with free access to the world’s major messaging applications,” said Peter Bithos, senior advisor for Consumer Business of Globe.
Its unlimited call and text service will now include Viber with 200 million users around the world, Facebook messenger with 60 million users, KakaoTalk with 90 million users and major OTT players with over 650 users, all for free.
In addition, Globe is launching another globally innovative service: a dedicated mobile Internet promo for customers who use messaging applications frequently.
With these mobile Internet promos, subscribers can connect with more than a billion users around the world regardless of mobile networks or even location, for as long as they have accounts from the chat applications.
To register, subscribers can text GOUNLI30 and UNLICHAT25 to 8888, or call *143# for free. Both GoUNLI30 and UNLICHAT25 support major OTT players.
As of the end of June this year, Globe’s cumulative mobile subscribers stood at 36.1 million, while its prepaid subscribers stood at about 34.2 million, 14 percent above last year’s 30.1 million and 3 percent higher than previous quarter’s 33.3 million.
“With our modernized network, we now have the capability to do first-to-market offers like these that give our subscribers access to bandwidth-heavy services such as data and apps, making their mobile experience better than ever before,” Bithos said.
