New plans offer up to 80% savings on international roaming changes
With Bridge VoiceSMS Roam, Globe customers can now stand to save up to 80% versus prevailing international roaming rates. For example, a customer using Bridge VoiceSMS Roam30 in India can expect to save approximately US$88, when compared to the prevailing voice and SMS roaming rates.
