Globe to change landline numbers and DUO numbers to 8 digits
Globe has announced that it will soon be changing its landline and DUO numbers from 7 digits to 8 digits.
This announcement comes as a part of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC)’s memorandum order No. 10-10-2017 dated last October 2017. In the memorandum, telecom operators are instructed to expand the telephone number range from 7-digit to 8-digit format. NTC assigned select Public Telephone Entities (PTE), which serves as a prefix to the original phone number, to the various telecom operators. The number 7 will be added at the start of Globe landline/DUO numbers, while the number 3 is assigned for Bayan numbers.
The 8-digit number format will be implemented beginning on October 6, 2019.
