Globe Stores and Easy Hubs across the country are ready to provide assistance to customers who may need help in registering their SIMs as the April 26, 2023 deadline approaches.Cleo Santos, Head of Globe Channel Marketing Group, said 147 Globe stores and 25 Easy Hubs in various locations around the country are open to mobile and broadband customers who would need help to have their SIMs registered in compliance with the SIM Registration Act.
"We are pleased to see a steady increase in registered subscribers. However, we understand that some of our customers may still need assistance. So in our commitment to provide excellent service, our Globe Stores and Globe Easy Hubs are open to assist customers who need help for SIM registration," said Cleo Santos, Head of Globe Channel Management Group.
This effort is on top of 24/7 registration via Globe’s SIM registration website https://new.globe.com.ph/simreg, and the GlobeOne app. Globe earlier launched National SIM Registration Week, an initiative to roll out over 500 SIM Registration Assistance Desks across the country, including remote areas and places known to have high concentration of users of basic phones.
Globe has so far logged 23.48 million SIM registrations as of April 2. An estimated 86.7 million SIM are under the Globe network.
The SIM Registration Act aims to help curb scams and cybercrime by requiring all local SIMs to be registered by April 26 this year. Unregistered SIMs will be deactivated after the deadline.
To facilitate the registration of more customers, especially in remote areas, Globe has participated in several rounds of on-ground SIM Registration Assistance led by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
