Globe launches inbound calling offer for Koreans in the Philippines

Globe Telecom has launched Globe DUO Korea, an international inbound calling offer for Koreans in the Philippines.

Seated in the center are Rizza Maniego-Eala, Globe Telecom’s Group Head for International Business and Yong Chul Kwon, INY’s Chief Executive Officer, with managers from both companies.

Globe Telecom has launched Globe DUO Korea, an international inbound calling offer for Koreans in the Philippines. Globe DUO Korea is a service that allows a Globe or TM subscriber to purchase a Korea-based telephone number. Their friends and family back home can call their Korea-based telephone number and calls will be received in their Globe or TM phones.

Seated in the center are Rizza Maniego-Eala, Globe Telecom’s Group Head for International Business and Yong Chul Kwon, INY’s Chief Executive Officer, with managers from both companies.

Calls can now made between two Korea-based numbers, just like making a local call in Korea, resulting to significant savings.

Subscription to the service comes in two variants: The seven-day subscription for only P399 or US$10 is best for short-term visitors, tourists or businessmen, while the 30-day subscription for only P999 or US$25 will fully satisfy the communication needs of students, migrants and Koreans with established businesses in the Philippines.

“Now, seamless and low-cost connectivity with Korea simply needs a Globe or TM SIM and a Globe DUO Korea subscription,” explains Rizza Maniego-Eala, group head for Globe International Business. “The best part is that subscribers no longer need to schedule receiving calls when they are home and have access to their internet-based landline services since calls are received through the mobile phone anytime, anywhere,” she added.

This service is made possible through the partnership of Globe with INY Communications, a total telecommunications business which provides clients with wholesale and retail international calling services.

“We are excited to partner with Globe, the most preferred telecom service provider of the Korean community in the Philippines, in offering Globe DUO Korea,” said John C. Kwon, CEO of INY. “Our experience in selling international calling services together with Globe’s reliable service will be a powerful combination to ensure that customers’ calling needs are exceeded.”

In addition, Globe also partnered with Onfill, a Philippine country portal site in Korea, operated by Saehoon Air Travel Co., Ltd., the official General Sales Agent in South Korea of one of the Philippines’ biggest airlines. Onfill has the largest sales channel—over 4,000 travel agents nationwide—and provides 27 flights per week to the country with thousands of Korean tourists.

“Our access to numerous travel agencies in South Korea as well as thousands of Korean tourists will ensure that travellers to the Philippines are well-informed of Globe DUO Korea even before they leave the country,” said Starsky Park, Planning Department Director of Saehoon.

Globe also partnered with the United Korean Community Association in the Philippines (UKCA), the umbrella organization of all Korean associations in the country, to further its goal of reaching out to one of the biggest foreign communities in the Philippines.

“Globe, being a major partner, gives us the assurance that our plans for the local Korean community are supported by one of the Philippines’ largest companies,” said Jang Il Lee, UKCA president. “Their effort to reach out to our community is well-received and appreciated.”

Korean Ambassador to the Philippines Lee Hyuk, in his message during the contract signing ceremony between UKCA and Globe, said “the patronage of Koreans in the Philippines in Globe signifies our trust in the excellent standards of your network. In addition, I am optimistic that more Koreans will patronize Globe, given its people-oriented service. This partnership will also play a crucial role in deepening the cultural understanding between our two peoples.”

“Globe DUO Korea is a testament to our continued efforts to introduce innovative products in the market to provide our subscribers with superior service,” Maniego-Eala said.
