Globe has announced it is offering free connectivity, including roaming call, text and data to Filipinos in Israel to help them keep in touch with loved ones amid reports of the worst militant attacks in the area.
Globe postpaid and prepaid customers currently using roaming services in Israel may connect with their loved ones with free 15 minutes of incoming and outgoing calls, 15 texts to all networks, and 1GB data (whichever service is currently available) good for 7 days at no extra cost.
To avail of the free roaming service, Globe customers only need to connect to Globe’s roaming partners Cellcom, Partner Communications and Pelephone. No registration is required for the goodwill offer, and this free roaming service will be automatically provided to Globe customers currently in Israel. A confirmation message will be sent to customers advising them that the free roaming offer is ready for use.
“Globe is immediately providing connectivity support to Filipinos in Israel as conflict grips the Middle Eastern nation, where thousands of our kababayans live and work. Through free roaming access, we hope to help them reach their loved ones at home at this difficult time,” said Coco Domingo, Globe VP for Postpaid and International Business.
To make a call, dial “+” plus country code, area code and telephone number (ex. +63773101212) or dial “+” plus country code and mobile number (ex. +639171234567). To send a text, type “+” plus country code and mobile number (ex. +639171234567).
To use the free 1GB data allocation, customers simply need to turn on mobile data and data roaming on their phone’s settings, and set the network connection to 3G or LTE. Postpaid customers are encouraged to only turn on their mobile data and data roaming once they have received the activation message.
News reports indicate that militants have infiltrated Israel’s southern areas with the largest rocket attack in years, leaving dozens killed and hundreds wounded.
Globe regularly provides free roaming to customers nationwide in times of crises, most recently in Morocco following the historic 6.8 quake that struck near Marrakech last September.
