MANILA, Philippines — Globe Telecom Inc. is expanding the availability of its 5G roaming services to Europe and the US through partnerships with various telco operators.

Globe has rolled out 5G roaming in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, and Sweden in partnership with Telia Co.

It is also set to launch its 5G roaming services in Italy on June 3 via Telecom Italia.

Within the quarter, Globe said it would also launch 5G in Sweden with Swisscom, and announce locations in North America in partnership with AT&T.

The Ayala-led telco said it is committed to deliver 5G roaming services to international destinations where their customers need it.

To date, Globe’s 5G network is live and readily available in 16 countries in partnership with 12 telecommunications companies.

Aside from Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Estonia, Globe’s 5G roaming is also available in Kuwait and Qatar through Ooredoo; Saudi Arabia through STC; Taiwan through Taiwan Mobile; Thailand through AIS Thailand; United Arab Emirates through Du and Etisalat; Hong Kong through CSL; South Korea through SK Telecom; Singapore through Singtel; Turkey through Turkcell; and Oman through Omantel.
