[/caption] The service ? at least, initially ? has a few constraints: it is available only for post-paid subscribers of Globe, currently limited to one country — Thailand, and registration to a one-day subscription expires at midnight of the host country. The package, however, is revolutionary in the sense that a subscriber can receive call and send text messages, as well as browse the Internet at a fixed cost. In Globe?s other roaming service ?PowerRoam ? subscribers can only pay a fix cost for outgoing calls and texts and not calls and texts that they receive while abroad. From October 11 to November 12, 2012, Globe postpaid subscribers visiting Thailand can register to any of the three roaming combos available. Unlimited roaming mobile Internet is available for $10 for the 1-day variant and $27 for the 3-day variant. The unlimited roaming calls and mobile Internet combo is offered at $30 for the 1-day variant and $90 for the three-day variant. Finally, the unlimited roaming calls, texts, and mobile Internet combo is available for $40 for the 1-day variant and $120 for the 3-day variant. Globe postpaid subscribers on roaming in Thailand will be covered by all roaming partners in the country such as Advanced Info Service Public (AIS), Total Access Communication (DTAC) and True Move Company Limited. Subscribers don?t have to manually latch on to a specific partner-operator because the promo covers all local operators in Thailand. ?Globe already has the world-widest roaming coverage with partnerships spanning across 200 countries and with more than 600 mobile operators across the globe. We also have the widest range of roaming offers and promos, with our unlimited roaming internet promo available in 19 countries, and our PowerRoam offer which is fully consumable with up to 75-percent discount on roaming rates available in 16 destinations,? said Rizza Maniego-Eala, head for international business group at Globe. With the pilot promo, Globe said it is gearing up to offer more offerings covering more destinations in the future. To register to the Globe All-Unli Roam promos, postpaid subscribers can dial *143# (toll-free even while on roaming), select ?ROAMING PROMOS? and then select ?All UNLI?. An SMS confirmation will be sent to the subscriber with the terms and conditions applicable to the promo selected.]]>
