Callers and subscribers from the United States can save up to 95% when they call their loved ones in the Philippines with the newest calling service from Globe Telecom.

Globe Super U.S. Direct is another innovative calling offer for Filipino subscribers receiving calls from their relatives in the United States. Available to Globe Prepaid and Postpaid subscribers, it is the first and only calling service that provides them their virtual U.S. landline numbers which can be used to receive incoming calls that are charged with local U.S. call rates.

 This means that the subscriber’s contact from anywhere in the U.S. will be charged a lower and more affordable calling rate compared to a standard IDD call when calling the Philippines.

 “With Globe Super U.S. Direct, families separated by distance need not worry about high overseas call rates that prohibit them from calling the Philippines regularly. Those based in the U.S. can now call their loved ones here more frequently to keep their bonds and ties intact despite being away from each other,” said Richie Sison, Head for Overseas Filipino Communities and Strategic Alliances of Globe. “We are happy to have launched another breakthrough product that is relevant and easy to use for our subscribers, especially those who need to stay connected all the time without having to spend too much.”

For only US$15 or only P699 valid for a month’s use, the Philippine-based Globe mobile number will enjoy its own U.S. number, complete with a U.S. area code. Family members based in the U.S. are then charged local call rates based on their respective plans when they call the Philippines, making long-distance communication more affordable and convenient.

Added Sison, “The service is really beneficial to both parties. U.S.-based subscribers on unlimited plans can enjoy unlimited calling services to their relatives in the Philippines using Super U.S. Direct. On the other hand, those using the product here don’t need to bother scheduling calls just to save on costs. Using the Globe Super U.S. Direct is as convenient and affordable as local to local U.S. call, making subscribers feel closer to each other.”

For calls made from outside the U.S. to a Super U.S. Direct number, standard IDD rates apply. Regular IDD rates of US$0.40/minute will be charged for outbound calls to the U.S. using the service.

To register, text SUPERUSDIRECT<space>699 and send to 8888. Subscriber will receive the assigned U.S. number and date of expiration via text message. Registration can also be done via the Globe website at http://superusdirect.globe.com.ph found under the International tab.

Globe has a strong international coverage around the world, offering a suite of international services to over 250 destinations and more than 600 roaming partners worldwide. Visit www.globe.com.ph/kababayan for more details.
