Globe launched its exclusive partnership with voice and chat service and app Viber for its newest prepaid offerings, the unlimited Viber Call and Chat services, which allows subscribers to use Viber without Wi-Fi or additional data charges bundled with unlimited calls and texts to Globe and TM subscribers.
Present at the launching event were Globe Telecom’s Senior Advisor for Consumer Business Peter Bithos and Viber CEO Talmon Marco.

Globe also offers Viber20, which gives users free access to Viber Calls and Chat services for PHP 20 a day. Viber10, meanwhile, gives you one (1) whole day of chatting with your friends all over the world for as low as your train fare.
“Viber is excited to partner with Globe Telecom as we endeavor to grow our footprint in the Philippines,” said Viber CEO Talmon Marco. “Globe understands how the needs of its consumers evolve and is very aggressive in leading the digital lifestyle of its subscribers. With Viber’s revolutionary features that Filipinos love, it is definitely a refreshing experience to use the application without having to wait for Wi-Fi. With the innovative offers from Globe, every Filipino will now get a chance to explore the Viber experience.”
“We are happy and excited to collaborate with Viber as their exclusive Philippine telco partner to expand their presence and user base in the country,” said Peter Bithos, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe Telecom. “The partnership is in line with our strategy to explore new revenue streams beyond call and text services, becoming a full-fledged digital brand.”
Bithos added, “Another first in the Philippines, our Viber bundles and promos will allow our customers to enjoy Viber however they want – whether bundled with their call and text services, or as a separate Viber data promo, to connect with their families and friends, not only within the same network, but also with other networks here and abroad. Our prepaid subscribers can use Viber all-they-want, anytime, anywhere, worry-free – and that’s a Globe Guarantee.”
The Philippines, according to Bithos, is has become one among the leaders when it comes to the use of social media. He stresses that the country’s fast growing economy has become a viable factor for investors to capitalize in the market, thus Globe and Viber’s partnership.
