Yesterday at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines, Globe Telecoms marked the launch of its partnership with the leading Japanese telecoms company, Brastel, with the introduction of their co-branded reloadable calling card. The product is for the 250,000 OFWs in Japan. Because of this partnership, calling rates to Globe and TM in the Philippines are now as low as half the cost of other offers in the market.
“Globe is starting 2015 with a great proposition for our kababayans in Japan whether as residents, temporary workers, students or visitors. We have forged ties with a respected company such as Brastel in order to provide Filipinos abroad with more affordable means to communicate with their loved ones back home,” said Globe EVP and COO for International and Business Markets Gil Genio.
“Japan has always been an important market for Globe because of the hundred of thousands of Pinoys based there. This partnership with Brastel gives us an opportunity to offer good quality calls, superior rates and a widely-accessible reloadable card product available in over 44,000 outlets across the said country,” added Globe SVP for International Business Riza Maniego-Eala.
The Globe-Brastel card is available for free at Filipino stores across the Land if the Rising Sun, Japan. To make a call, you can simply dial the access number, country code, area code and phone number from any landline, mobile or payphone. Reloading the card is easy via the widely-accepted Smart Pit payment gateway at partner convenience stores such as Family Mart, Mini Stop, Circle K and Lawson. It can also be reloaded via the Brastel website using a credit card in denominations of 2,000 yen up to 10,000 yen.
The value and availability of this new service is really a great help to our OFW kababayans in Japan. Indeed, Globe is making great things possible.
