Globe Telecom Inc. said Monday it will roll out its prepaid eSIM by end of September, reinforcing its dedication to pioneering user-centric technological solutions.
It said the shift to a digital-only model ensures that Globe’s customers are spared the inconvenience of store visits or physical SIM delivery, making the transition to the eSIM both sustainable and efficient.
“At Globe, we’re always looking ahead, anticipating the needs of our customers in an ever-evolving digital landscape,” said Darius Delgado, head of Globe’s consumer mobile business.
“The prepaid eSIM captures our vision of a seamless, digital-first mobile experience, marrying innovation with convenience,” he said.
Globe said the merits of the eSIM go beyond its digital nature as it allows users to install multiple eSIMs on selected devices and use two phone numbers at the same time.
The eSIM can also be used in devices other than mobile phones such as smartwatches, allowing seamless connection under one mobile number. This technology is available to the Apple Watch cellular, allowing Globe Prepaid iPhone users to go out with just their Apple watch and stay connected even without bringing their iPhone.
The roll-out of the prepaid eSIM has a positive environmental impact as well. By digitalizing the SIM process, eSIM technology can eliminate the need for plastic, and logistics required to create a physical SIM, and cut down its associated carbon emissions, according to the company.
