Globe Telecom has forged a partnership with mobile messaging application Line to allow Filipinos abroad to make free calls to Globe mobile and TM subscribers in the Philippines from December 24, 2014 to January 1, 2015.
?This year, our customers enjoyed a richer mobile experience with our global partnerships with Spotify and NBA that fully enabled their digital lifestyles. As we end the year on a high note, we are excited to announce another collaboration with leading messaging app Line as our way to reach out to Filipinos abroad and still let them feel the true spirit of Christmas by giving them the chance to call their loved ones in the Philippines on Globe and TM for free,? said Globe executive vice president and chief operations officer Gil Genio.
Globe senior vice president for international business Rizza Maniego-Eala said calling is still one of the most popular ways to send Christmas greetings.
?Hearing the voice of a loved one saying ?Merry Christmas? definitely warms the heart of every Filipino. Furthering our commitment to bridging the gap between our kababayans around the world and their loved ones back home, we are happy to forge an alliance with Line to let Filipinos, no matter where they are, enjoy worry-free and non-stop calls using the app,? she added.
Line Philippines head Greg Kim said its collaboration with Globe has ushered in a new era in telecommunications. ?As the synergy of an app and a network is created, [we?re] expanding our reach to more Filipinos who wish to get in touch with friends and family using Globe and TM in the Philippines.?
The Line app offering is an expansion of Globe?s line-up of services for overseas Filipinos, which include Duo International for 24 countries, international SIMS in the UK, Spain, Italy, and co-branded partnerships in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Saudi Arabia, among others.
