Globe expands 5G roaming services in Europe and USA
Globe has revealed its commitment to expand its 5G services globally through its partnership with telecommunication companies in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

Meanwhile, it is expected that by June 30, Globe users in Italy will get their chance to experience 5G technology via Telecom Italia.
