“We understand how important connectivity is for millions of Filipinos overseas. While there is a multitude of ways to keep a constant connection back in the Philippines, there are many opportunities to provide accessible and value for money communication service to our countrymen living or working abroad. There are varying pain points per location and partnering with equally-innovative firms will help us offer various alternatives to our customers. Our partnership with Orange is another pivotal piece as we continue to solve the growing jigsaw puzzle around seamless and cost-effective communications” states Rizza Maniego-Eala, Senior Vice President for International Business at Globe.
