Suspect arrested!

Globe, together with the Philippine National Police, seized a unit of Globe At Home Tozed S10g modem rebranded with DITO stickers from the 33-year-old Marlou de Paz in a sting operation in Pala-Pala, Brgy. Sampaloc Dasmarinas Cavite.

This happened immediately after the warning issued by Globe regarding the tampered Globe At Home broadband with DITO sticker.

Globe revealed that according on the police report, the suspect is under investigation for violating RA 8484, or the Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998.

Marlou de Paz was caught selling "openline DITO modems" on various Facebook community groups for Cavite-based residents. He stated that any telco operator's SIM may be used for the unit to function. The post also openly claimed that the modems are Tozed "S10g Home Prepaid WiFi device."

Globe noted that it is currently the only authorized distributor of the said Tozed S10G modems in the country. The telco added that they are taking the necessary steps in ensuring that its customers are well-protected from illegal activities concerning its products and devices.

The company is also encouraging its customers to report suspicious activities surrounding Globe At Home’s modems and escalate these accordingly to the appropriate authorities:
