Globe putting up physical booths in 15 areas for SIM Registration

With the SIM Registration in full swing since December 27, 2022, millions of people have already completed the registration of their SIM numbers online. However, there are also concerns that some folks do not have access or have limited access to the internet in order to complete their registration.

Thus, telcos will have to figure out other ways to get their subscribers complete the registration process before the April 26, 2023 deadline set by the DICT. Globe Telecoms have planned this out by setting up booths in 15 locations/provinces this month to assist in SIM registration.

As a service provider, Globe will put up SIM Registration booths in areas identified by the government as priority for assisted registration, including those with poor or no internet access.

“Globe supports the government’s initiative to put up special assistance booths to serve mobile users in hard-to-reach areas. We will exert all effort so all Globe customers will be able to register their SIMs to continue enjoying our services. We will work closely with the government so no one is left behind in the SIM registration process,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu.

“As we work together towards this shared goal, we look forward to the support of both the national government and LGUs in helping telcos reach out to SIM users and encouraging them to register,” he added.

From January 25 to 27, Globe will hold assisted SIM Registration in 15 identified areas in coordination with the National Telecommunications Commission:

January 25, 2023

● Municipal Auditorium, Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte
● Covered Court, Moalboal, Cebu
● Municipal Gym, Palo, Leyte
● Municipal Gym, Pangantucan, Bukidnon
● Covered Court, Malalag, Davao del Sur

January 26, 2023

● Atok, Benguet
● Camalaniugan Sports Complex, Barangay Dacal, Lafugu, Maharlika Highway, Camalaniugan, Cagayan

SIM Registration booths are open to all, and Globe is urging those who may need special assistance, including senior citizens, PWDs or those using basic/feature phones, to take the opportunity to get their SIMs registered.

Those who would like to register in assistance booths should be ready with the following information:

● Full name
● Date of birth
● Sex
● Address
● Government ID with photo
● Mobile number

Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe will roll out in February its own initiative to bring SIM registration on site across the country. It recently held its massive assisted registration for festival goers at the Sinulog Festival in Cebu and the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo.

From January 27 to 29, Globe will provide assisted registration in booths in 30 Puregold branches across the country.
