Conexus boosts travel with value-packed roaming offers
As more countries reopen their borders and restart their tourism industries, members of Conexus Mobile Alliance are enabling their traveling customers with more value-packed roaming offers.
“2022 marks the onset of revenge travel as travellers the world over make up for lost time with bigger travel plans and longer holidays. Conexus members are at the forefront of enabling this resurgence by serving our customers best and offering them more value for their money,” said Katrina Luna-Abelarde, Conexus Board Chairman and First Vice President and Deputy CTO/Head, Transformation Office at PLDT, the Philippines’ largest integrated telecommunications company and parent company of Conexus member Smart Communications, Inc (Smart).
Starting June, Conexus members FET, Hutchison HK/Macau, KT, Smart, StarHub and True have rolled out roaming packs that feature less charges and more data.
