Globe partners with France’s Orange to offer cheap calls to PH via Libon app

Filipinos living abroad can now use Paris-based Orange Group’s Libon app, an all-in-one communication application for iPhone and Android, to call a Globe Telecom or TM number in the Philippines for just Php1.30 per minute.

Globe and Orange have partnered to offer a “Libon Out” package for only US$25.99, inclusive of 1,000 minutes of calls or P1.30 per minute rate to any Globe and TM number in the Philippines. The companies claim that the rate is 67% lower compared to other app-to-Globe per minute rate.

Orange and Globe Telecom Libon partnership

Launching the partnership between Globe and Libon are (from L-R) Cornelius Macalino, Vice President for Business Development, International Business at Globe Telecom; Julien Hodara, Senior Vice President for Strategy and International Business at Libon; Rizza Maniego-Eala, Senior Vice President for International Business at Globe Telecom; and Pierre Marie Chatton, Project Manager at Libon.

Julien Hodara, Senior Vice-President Strategy and International Business at Libon explains that the direct link between Libon’s app server and Globe’s communications systems ensures the high quality of calls.

Using the “Philippines with Globe” package, only the Libon user needs a data connection to make and receive international calls. Recipients of a call made through Libon do need a smartphone with access to data or WiFi. Basically, any phone with a Globe or TM SIM can accept calls from a Libon app user anywhere in the world.

Rizza Maniega-Eala, Senior Vice President for International Business at Globe reveals that the telco is Orange’s first foreign partner. She also expects OFWs living in Europe and the Middle East as the main users of the Libon app as these regions are Orange’s biggest markets.
