Pwede online! Globe gears up for registration of 88M SIM cards by end-2022

Mobile network giant Globe Telecom said it is only awaiting the effectivity of the implementing rules set by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) before it starts requiring all of its 87.9 million subscribers to register.

The Ayala-owned service provider said it welcomes the completion of NTC’s implementing rules and regulations for Republic Act No. 11934 or the SIM Card Registration Act, which takes effect on Dec. 27, 2022.

“In compliance with the law, Globe will launch its online SIM registration platform and start selling new SIMs in deactivated mode. All new SIMs must be registered immediately to enjoy Globe services, while existing SIMs should be registered within 180 days or six months from the effectivity of the law,” the company said, noting that the mechanics will be published soon.

Online and in-store kiosks will be set up for SIM registration for a “seamless, secure, inclusive and convenient” experience for customers.”
