A couple of weeks ago, Globe mentioned that they will start selling the nano-SIM this month. True enough, the prepaid nano-SIMs are now available in select Globe stores nationwide.
For the meantime, only the prepaid nano-SIMs are being sold by Globe in their stores. The postpaid version of the nano-SIM is also available for new or existing subscribers for free.
(Disclosure: We’ve already requested our own postpaid nano-SIM replacement at no additional cost.)
Here’s a copy of the press release they sent:
Revolutionary Nano-SIMs now available in Globe Stores. Globe Telecom has officially offered the revolutionary Nano-SIM in its Globe Stores, way ahead of competing telco brands. The Nano-SIMs are new generation subscriber identity module (SIM) cards for the latest generation of smartphones running on the most modern mobile network technologies.
The Nano-SIM measures 12.3 millimeters wide, 8.8 millimeters high and 0.67 millimeters thick, or about 40% smaller than the Micro-SIM. â€œWe have ordered as much as 5x more Nano-SIMs than our usual SIM orders as we anticipate high demand from our subscribers, especially when smartphones running on Nano-SIMs are offered to the market,â€ said Martha Sazon, Head of Globe Postpaid.
The Globe Nano-SIM is free for new and existing postpaid subscribers while new prepaid subscribers can avail of the Nano-SIM for only P40. Shown in photo is Globe subscriber Maria Salud Sison receiving her Nano-SIM from Globe store specialist Gilbert Calalay.
We tried looking for the availability of the nano-SIM in Globe’s Online Store but the site isn’t updated yet.
