NTC Extends SIM Registration

The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has extended the SIM Registration for an additional 90 days. Under RA 11934 or the SIM Registration Act, which took effect on 28 October 2022, all existing SIM subscribers shall register the same with their respective public telecommunications entities (PTEs) within 180 days from the effectivity of the law, or until 26 April 2023. On 25 April 2023, however, the three PTEs, namely DITO Telecommunity Corporation (DITO), Globe Telecom Inc. (Globe), and Smart Communications Inc. (Smart), requested to extend the registration period for an additional 90 days. The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) approved the same. Now, existing SIM subscribers who have not yet registered their SIM can do so until 25 July 2023.
