French telecom group, Orange has formed a partnership with the second largest operator in the Philippines, Globe Telecom to launch a new international voice call offer that will connect Filipino communities living and working abroad with Globe's customers back home via its Over-the-Top(OTT) app, Libon. The partnership capitalizes on the growing popularity of the Libon app that provides free unlimited Libon to Libon HD calls, chats and personalized visual voicemail. 

The ‘Philippines with Globe’ offer, purchased in-app, provides 1,000 minutes of calls for US$25.99 to call Globe and its mobile service, Touch Mobile(TM) in the Philippines from around the world. At US$0.026 per minute, the offer is 67% cheaper than any other app-to-Globe Telecom rates for international calls on the market. The new offer follows on the heels of other new voice-focused services from Libon, such as ‘Reach Me’ which allows customers to receive and place calls using their mobile number when on Wi-Fi.

Additionally, customers registering to the Libon app between 26 August and 9 September, 2015 will also receive 100 minutes of free calls to Globe and TM.

According to Orange, the partnership will facilitate calls from over 140 countries worldwide and provide Globe with a potential new customer base of over two million Filipinos living abroad.

This partnership builds on the quietly growing popularity of the Libon app and responds to a clear and discernible demand for high-quality and reliable voice services that offer flexibility to call who you want, regardless of handset.
