PLDT Global and ATLAS Express Padala are offering Filipinos in the US and Canada more ways to connect with their loved ones back home through the PLDT subsidiary’s mobile app, Free Bee.
A VoIP solution available in over 180 countries, Free Bee is an advertising-based voice service that delivers high-quality IDD calls to the Philippines for free.
For longer calls and an ad-free experience, users have the option to buy Premium Free Bee Voice buckets at affordable rates — as low as $0.1 per minute — from global retailers or via in-app and online purchases.
With more than 32 branches in the US and Canada, ATLAS’ Express Padala service is the official distributor of PLDT Global’s products and services.
The newly-signed partnership will utilize ATLAS’ call center operations in Manila so that agents can cross-sell Free Bee to existing clients.
Pinoys in the US and Canada will also be able to enjoy the most affordable calls to the Philippines through PGC’s tie-up with ATLAS, who also has shipping and balikbayan box delivery services.
The service targets the estimated two million Filipinos who leave the country every year to augment their family’s financial standing and are in need of communication services to help them stay connected with their loved ones back home.
