Globe, PLDT activate landline interconnection in Tarlac




Globe Telecom has announced today its commercial activation of local interconnection in Tarlac between its landline service, Globelines, and PLDT.

The local interconnection allows Globelines subscribers to call PLDT subscribers, and vice-versa, without having to pay for long distance charges. “This shows that despite being competitors, major players like Globe and PLDT can still provide cooperation, coordination and support towards affording more people greater access to telecommunications,” said Atty. Froilan M. Castelo, Head of Globe Corporate and Legal Services Group.


 

The move is in compliance with the compulsory interconnection of authorized public telecommunications carriers under Republic Act 7925 which aims to create a universally accessible and fully integrated nationwide telecommunications network to encourage more infrastructure investments from the private sector that would benefit the consumers.

“We hope to provide local interconnection to all Globelines subscribers nationwide that is why we are always open to negotiations with other local exchange carriers. This way, we can help bring universal access and a fully-integrated telecommunications network to all our customers,” Castelo added.

    Not quite, it’s a government mandate that pushed it forward.

    This should be a huge boost for Globe! Now Duo/Superduo finally becomes a sensible, if not irresistible offering. Globe’s cellular signal has always been strong in Tarlac, dare I say superior to Smart’s and Sun’s. The lack of interconnection with PLDT really hurt, especially their Duo/Superduo offerings.

    Does this have anything to do with the massive DSL outages the past day? Haven’t had a dial tone here in Pasig City for the past two days but their customer service seems to be in the dark about any issues.

    No Internet Connection In Concepcion (Tarlac) in the last few days. This is what Globe / PLDT calls Internet service?
