Globe Telecom, Inc. (GLO) has expanded its operation in Singapore, targeting foreign enterprises that seek seamless communications between Singapore and Manila.
“We’re opening a new company called Globetel Singapore,” Gil Genio, Globe chief operating officer for Business and International Markets, said.
“We’ve established what is called a facilities-based license in Singapore,” Genio said.
According to Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, facilities-based operators offer telecommunication switching or services to other licensed telecommunication operators, business or consumers.
“We have a long partnership with SingTel and a co-branded SIM in Singapore. We are expanding that relationship because we can serve also companies and other foreign carriers who want links between Singapore and the Philippines by establishing a new hub in Singapore,” Genio said, referring to Singapore Telecoms, the Ayala Group’s strategic partner in Globe.
The Ayala-led telco earlier said it plans to offer financial services and mobile advertising in Myanmar and other Southeast Asian markets once Asean integration is in place.
