( Have you registered your SIM? For those who haven't yet for whatever reason, here's some good news: There are registration sites put up in some remote areas from January 25 to 27, 2023 so you can have your SIM registered ASAP.

So far, there are 15 pilot sites across the country to assist SIM users who are having difficulty with the registration, including those who have poor or no Internet access, those using basic phones or non-smartphones, and populations who need special assistance like senior citizens and PWDs. More sites will be added to reach more Filipinos before the April 26 deadline, the DICT said in a press conference today, January 25.
