Globe has a new service called G-Webcall that provides Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services for calls to Globe or TM cellphones worldwide for P7.50 per minute.
It’s not a bad deal if you compare it to other services like Skype (around P13 per minute to call the Philippines). Of course, this doesn’t beat free VOIP calls from PC to PC.
Here’s the lowdown:
- Limitations: Need a Globe post-paid account to start using service. Users can place calls only to Globe/TM phones.
- Advantages: Ease of payment – through the regular Globe post-paid cellphone bill
- Ideal for: Jetsetters with a computer abroad, calling the Philippines. With some creativity, it could work for OFWs calling home too.
