Even in the earliest times, each country has had its own share of seafarers. Bringing goods to and fro between countries. Ferrying people between islands and continents for both pleasure and business.
Its high time somebody took notice of the needs of our seafolk. With the advances in technology, communicating has never been easier even if you are in a ship in the middle of nowhere.
Globe Telecom through its International Business Group leads the celebration of the Seafarers Day on June 25, 2014 to be held at the Luneta Seafarers Welfare Foundation, Inc. at TM Kalaw, Manila and the Maritime Industry Authority.
How does Globe Telecom help our seafarers? With the Globe Seafarers Sim, our relatives have no need to buy expensive satellite phones just to keep in touch.
As an innovative feature, subscribers get two numbers in one SIM: an international mobile number and a Philippine Globe mobile number. By having a Globe mobile number, family and friends in the Philippines can contact them using local rates, just like calling or texting another mobile number in the Philippines. In addition, Filipino mariners can call home for as low as U$0.20/minute and send an SMS for just U$0.10.
It can be activated in any unlocked 2G or 3G handset in over 200 countries around the world.
The Globe Seafarer SIM is available in various countries abroad, select Globe stores nationwide, including Globe booths in airports, LUSWELF and MARINA.
The Seafarer Sim is available for only 450 php or $10
