Globe sets trail in UK with UK Globetel Limited



Globe Telecom extends its reach to the hardworking Filipinos abroad with the establishment of an operating company in the UK, introducing affordable international call and text rates for Pinoys on top of competitive UK domestic rates.

UK Globetel Limited, a member of the Globe group of companies, was established to handle the offering of telecommunications services in the UK, such as voice, SMS, MMS, load top-up and mobile data, to Filipinos residing in and visiting the United Kingdom.

The flagship product, the Globe Local UK Sim, will serve domestic UK mobile telecommunication requirements of Filipinos in the UK, enabling them to subscribe to affordable rates for calls and text messages to their loved ones in the Philippines. Local and international rates are available for as low as 10 pence per text message and 10 pence per minute for calls, the lowest calling rate from UK to the Philippines in the market today.

The Globe Local UK SIM is available at selected Filipino stores and partner-retailers in the UK, while its top-up is available in over 40,000 corner stores carrying Paypoint and Payzone payment terminals.

In addition, the calling service Globe DUO UK can be availed by the families of UK-based Filipinos. Upon subscription to the service, a local UK number will be provided to a registered Globe prepaid, postpaid and TM mobile number in the Philippines that will serve as their Globe DUO UK number for thirty days. This entitles their contacts from the UK to contact the virtual UK number any time of the day with unlimited call time that will be charged with domestic UK rates instead of standard IDD rates.

Available for only £17.00, Globe DUO UK promotes a “local” calling experience for UK-based Filipinos. Their Pinoy families can register to Globe DUO UK via SMS or via the website at
