    This is the same existing service provider for Globe. Remember what happened with Globe PrePaid problems (system downtimes) way back. Globe never got an explanation from the said provider. There must be more problems that I have not know of. And this provider had to keep strict confidentiality separate between the 2 Telcos accounts. Good luck w/ that.
