NTC targets 40 areas for facilitated SIM registration in WV

THE National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) in Western Visayas is working hard to bring the Facilitated Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Registration (FSR) to 40 areas in the region by April 26 this year.
This was disclosed by NTC 6 OIC regional director Engr. Leah Doromal amid the 12th roll out of FSR in the region at the civic center of Maayon town in Capiz since the initiative was launched in Carles, Iloilo last Jan. 27.
The FSR in Maayon is a pilot activity for the province of Capiz.
“We also have a schedule in President Roxas and Panay towns on March 2 and 3, respectively,” she noted, adding that the same undertaking will also be scheduled in Jamindan, Mambusao and Cuartero towns, among others.
The day-long SIM card registration in Maayon has successfully registered 530 SIM cards that include
334 Smart subscribers and 196 Globe SIM card users. Seventy – two from among the served subscribers are senior citizens.

Republic Act 11934 mandates the public to register their SIM cards before the deadline set on April 26, 2023.
The activity was also an opportunity for Maayon mayor Raymond Malapajo to convey to the representative of the telecommunication companies the town’s need for additional telecommunication infrastructures to address the “dead spot areas” and further improve telecommunication services in the municipality.
