Globe Telecom announced on Friday, May 9, that it has expanded its footprint in Europe with the establishment of Globetel Internacional European Espana (Globetel Espana), the newest member of the Globe group of companies.
Globetel Espana, which is poised to launch telecoms services in Spain within the year, will handle the offering of various telecommunications services such as voice, SMS, load top-up and mobile data in Spain.
Globe also signed a memorandum of understanding with Ingenium Outsourcing Services (IOS), a mobile virtual network aggregator based in Madrid.
With this development, Spain becomes the eighth country where Globe has retail presence. Other countries include the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and Italy.
?We are pleased to introduce the Globe brand of service to our countrymen in Spain, making it more affordable to keep in touch with their loved ones back in the Philippines,? said Globe chief operations officer and executive vice president for international and business markets Gil Genio.
Meanwhile, Globe senior vice president for international business Rizza Maniego-Eala said establishing a retail footprint in Spain solidifies Globe?s European presence.
?[W]ith the combined Filipino population of those working in a variety of sectors, permanent migrants, seafarers and those visiting for business or leisure, we believe this is the appropriate time for the unveiling of more direct services for the local Filipino community there.?
