Philippines now offers Roam Like Home

Horizon Globex’s first release of the Roam Like Home service went live with the Philippines leading mobile network operator, Smart Communications Inc., on Friday April 15th 2016 branded Smart Roamer, see http://smart.com.ph/smartroamer. Their subscribers simply perform a USSD top up on their prepaid subscription as normal, turn on [controlled] data roaming and then call home using their smartphone app over roaming data when they are abroad at a fraction of cost of a roaming voice minute and not much higher than the price of a local call.
