For the entire month of October, Filipinos abroad covered by DUO International are up for a treat from GLOBE as they are lowering the rate of the service to only $1 from its regular rate of $25 from October 1-31, 2014.
DUO International is a subscription service that assigns an international virtual number to a registered GLOBE or Touch Mobile number. Think VOIP phone without the need for internet access which makes it more accessible to even more users. Callers from abroad can call the virtual number as if they are calling a local number, at a rate that is way more affordable than standard IDD rates to the Philippines.
Once you register, your assigned international number will be able to receive calls from abroad but will not be able to make outgoing calls or SMS.
