globe introduces airline roaming

finally, i have some time to blog about this. i received a message from globe a while back (as in april of this year) about airline roaming.

with airline roaming, you no longer need to turn your phone off while on a flight. you can text and call as you please while you're flying to your destination.

for now, globe airline roaming is only available on select flights in air france and emirates, and can only be used by postpaid users. maybe once the service takes off, they will think of extending it to prepaid users.

personally, i'm not too happy about this, as i really treasure the few precious hours i have to disconnect from the world. but for people who need to be connected 24/7, this is great news.

for more information, you may text AIRLINE to 2222.
