Globe has registered more than 11 million active prepaid SIMs on Monday, January 30, a month after the SIM Registration Act took full effect.
“We are grateful to our customers for promptly registering their SIMs. We understand the importance of addressing the proliferation of scam and spam messages and have made it our priority to provide our customers with a seamless registration process. We are committed to meeting the deadline and continuing our efforts to protect our customers from scammers and fraudsters,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
Globe urges its customers who have yet to register to visit the user-friendly registration portal. There are an estimated 87.4 million existing SIM users under the Globe network.
Registration via the GlobeOne app will begin in February as an added channel where customers may register their SIMs.
Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe has also started rolling out its own on-site assistance booths across the country. From January 27 to 29, it led SIM registration assistance in 30 Puregold branches in strategic locations in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It will extend SIM registration assistance in other locations soon.
These efforts aim to provide inclusive ways to get Globe customers registered by the April 26, 2023 deadline. Users who fail to complete their registration on time will have their SIMs deactivated.
