The device works mostly like a pocket WiFi, except that this one is powered by a SIM-less solution from GlocalMe, which allows it to connect to any partner network around the world, automatically selecting the one with the strongest signal. It’s also fitted with a 4-inch touch display that allows you keep track of your data usage via the CherryRoam app, and can also accommodate up to 5 devices connected simultaneously.
You may also purchase data packages for your trip through the app. Available payment methods are Credit Card, or via PayPal. Rates start for as low as PhP250 for 1GB, valid for 3 days.
No need to worry about bringing an additional power pack with you, as CherryRoam can also function as a power bank, thanks to its massive 5,350mAh battery, allowing you to surf all-day without problems.
[su_quote cite=”Jacy Chua, CMCI’s Chief Finance Officer”]Cherry Mobile Communications’ vision has always been about providing affordable connectivity to all Filipinos. Since the launch of Cherry Prepaid three (3) years ago, we have offered affordable data, call, and text rates with significantly longer validity to our subscribers. Now with the launch of CherryRoam, we are extending that affordable data connectivity not just in the Philippines, but globally. This partnership with GlocalMe will surely empower all users to gain global data access to more than a hundred countries at competitive rates.[/su_quote]
