Smart to establish more assisted registration booths

The company also ensures that it is "ready" to cover those geographically isolated and disadvantaged and conflict-affected areas (GIDCA) identified by the Philippine government.

The government has identified about 39,753 barangays.

We are ready to help the government in accelerating assisted SIM Registration in GIDCA, in collaboration with the newly launched Interagency Response Center for SIM Registration. We are also committed to work with our regulator the National Telecommunications Commission, as it forms a Technical Working Group with other Public Telco Entities like ourselves, the Department of Information and Communications Technology, and other government agencies to discuss further details, said Cathy Yang, FVP and head of Group Corporate Communications at PLDT and Smart.

Since the implementation of the SIM registration, Smart has been launching assisted booths and touchpoints across the country to further provide a seamless process for its customers.

Yang stressed that inclusive SIM registration assistance has been one of the group's priorities.

We are progressively rolling out more assisted SIM Registration booths and touchpoints across the Philippines, with the help of local government units, to reach those with special needs, people with disabilities, those still using basic phones and devices. All this while we await further guidance from the TWG on where we go next, prioritizing customers located in GIDCA, the official added.

As of January 9, Smart already registered more than 7.75 million SIM cards.
