Globe’s Unlimited Instant Messaging Service
Globe Telecom Inc. expects to increase its prepaid subscribers, as it offers unlimited messaging services for free, as part of its new call and text bundle.
Globe senior advisor for consumer business Peter Bithos said the Globe Prepaid GoUNLI30 was a bundled prepaid offer, providing subscribers with unlimited texts to all networks, unlimited calls to Globe and TM users and unlimited access to instant messaging and chat applications Viber, Facebook Messenger, KakaoTalk and major OTT players without the need for Wi-Fi or additional data charges.
Globe also launched a dedicated mobile Internet promo for customers who use messaging applications frequently. The UNLICHAT25 service is a mobile Internet promo which offers uninterrupted use of Viber, Facebook Messenger, KakaoTalk and major OTT players for only P25 for one day, without the need for Wi-Fi.
“Globe is at the forefront of innovation once again as the first telco in the world to bundle our unlimited call and text service with free access to the world’s major messaging applications. With our modernized network, we now have the capability to do first-to-market offers like these that give our subscribers access to bandwidth-heavy services such as data and apps, making their mobile experience better than ever before,” Bithos said.
“True to our promise of enjoying Globe your way, we allow our customers to communicate via OTT players for free their own way,” he said.
“Our customers are social, technology-savvy users, who constantly look for new ways to connect with their contacts and friend circles – here and overseas. It is our job to allow them to do so at a reasonable price,” Mr. Bithos said.
The mobile Internet promos will allow Globe subscribers to connect with other users around the world regardless of mobile networks or even location, as long as they have accounts from the chat applications, he said.
To register, subscribers can text GOUNLI30 and UNLICHAT25 to 8888, or call *143# for free. Both GoUNLI30 and UNLICHAT25 support major OTT players.
Globe’s mobile subscribers stood at 36.1 million as of end-June this year, including 34.2 million prepaid subscribers, which was up 14 percent from last year’s 30.1 million.
