Globe A journey to Wonderful

Newly constructed homes in Gawad Kalinga New Washington, Aklan

When Super typhoon Haiyan unleashed its fury a year ago, it left a trail of unimaginable devastation to lives and properties. Yet, despite the bleak scenario, hope continued to exist as public and private sectors as well as the international community joined hands to bring the country back on its feet. Globe Telecom was among the first companies to respond to the call for help.

“Globe recognizes how every little effort counts in rebuilding the nation, thus, it went out of its way to rally the employees, customers, partners, and other stakeholders to raise funds for the construction of homes and school buildings and for the creation of livelihood opportunities in areas hardly hit by the disaster. Project Wonderful was born out of this desire to aid in nation building. Ten months since it was launched, we now see the fruits of our efforts but we are not stopping until we fulfill all our commitments,” said Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President, Globe Corporate Communications.

At present, Globe together with Gawad Kalinga, has completed a total of 162 homes in Brgy. Tambulilid, Ormoc, Leyte and Brgy. Fatima, New Washington, Aklan, as well as in Brgy. Tugas, Madridejos, Bantayan Island, Cebu via sponsorship of SingTel. An additional 28 houses are scheduled for construction in Libacao, Aklan early January for a total of 190 units. Globe is also set to give out 600 shelter kits to Libacao before yearend aside from the 940 shelter kits distributed in Madalag, Aklan earlier.

But even with all these efforts, Globe still took things a step further by becoming a Development Sponsor for Aklan under the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery (OPARR) where it spearheads initiatives in housing, education, livelihood, and health to help seven of the hardest hit municipalities specifically Libacao, Madalag, Banga, Batan, Altavas, Balete, and New Washington.

Globe not only provides houses for Aklan but is also working on building schools for its seven areas of concentration. Five of the 11 schools Globe committed under Phase I of the program are already undergoing construction.

Globe with the help of Habitat for Humanity and Ayala Foundation is building in two phases. The first phase involves the construction of “Noah’s Ark”-type classrooms that double as evacuation structures during calamities as they are equipped with three toilet and bath facilities each as well as a kitchen.

The second phase is comprised of more than 30 regular but “built back better” classrooms to be funded from proceeds of the company’s enterprise-wide waste management program, as well as from parent-company Ayala Corporation.

Earlier, Globe launched Project 1 Phone to educate Filipinos about the importance of proper disposal of electronic waste or e-waste and to contribute to the special cause of classroom building.

Everyone can support the efforts in Aklan by donating their old, non-working mobile phones for recycling at participating Globe Stores (please see complete list at www.globe.com.ph/project1phone). Proceeds of the program will be used as additional funding for the schools. Cash donations of 5, 20, 50, 100, 500 denominations may also be sent directly to Habitat for Humanity by texting DONATE HABITAT and send to 4438.

Aside from homes and schools, Globe also provides livelihood opportunities through Custom Made Crafts Center, a non-government organization involved in dye and abaca production and the Non-Timber Forest Products Exchange Programme. Globe also distributed AutoloadMax retailer kits to 100 beneficiaries of the DSWD’s Pantawid Pampamilyang Pilipino Program in Malay.

Globe Logs over 11M Prepaid SIM Registrants, urges Customers to Register before April 26 Deadline

Published

on

Globe, the leader in Mobile, has registered more than 11 million active prepaid SIMs around a month after the law mandating all Filipinos to register their SIMs took full effect.

Globe hit the milestone 11-million mark on Monday, January 30, 2023, a month after the SIM Registration Act was rolled out as a measure to stop cybercrime, including scam messages that proliferated due to the anonymity provided by prepaid SIMs.

“We are grateful to our customers for promptly registering their SIMs. We understand the importance of addressing the proliferation of scam and spam messages and have made it our priority to provide our customers with a seamless registration process. We are committed to meeting the deadline and continuing our efforts to protect our customers from scammers and fraudsters,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.

Globe urges its customers who have yet to register to visit its user-friendly registration portal https://new.globe.com.ph/simreg. There are an estimated 87.4 million existing SIM users under the Globe network.

Registration via the GlobeOne app will begin in February as an added channel where customers may register their SIMs. As a user of GlobeOne, customers will have access to exclusive offers and deals that are available only in the app.

Globe also provided support for government-led assisted registration in priority sites nationwide from January 25 to 27. Globe established booths in 15 areas and provided assistance to anyone who needed help, especially those in need of special assistance, including senior citizens, PWDs awww and those using basic/feature phones.

Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe has also started rolling out its own on-site assistance booths across the country. From January 27 to 29, it led SIM registration assistance in 30 Puregold branches in strategic locations in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It will extend SIM registration assistance in other locations soon.

These efforts aim to provide inclusive ways to get its customers registered by the April 26, 2023 deadline. Users who fail to complete their registration on time will have their SIMs deactivated.

Even before the new law was implemented, Globe has taken several steps to curb disruptive messages through proactive blocking, threat intelligence partnerships with financial institutions, a customer reporting portal, plus an awareness and education campaign to help customers with online protection.

Globe Deactivates, Blacklists More than 50,000 SIMs Linked to Fraud in 2022

Published

on

Leading digital solutions platform Globe deactivated and blacklisted more than 50,000 SIMs last year as it continued to intensify consumer protection initiatives amid the rising cases of online fraud.

Globe deactivated 20,225 SIMs and blacklisted 35,333 SIMs involved in scam and spam messages in 2022 alone as part of its campaign for internet safety.

This was on top of the record 2.72 billion scam and spam messages it blocked last year, 83.4 million of which were bank-related. All these efforts have been on-going to protect customers from harmful content and fraud before the enactment of the SIM Registration Act.

“Globe recognizes the growing threat posed by scammers, who use various tactics, including text messages, to deceive innocent victims into giving up personal information that could be used to compromise their financial accounts. We will continue to invest in our cybersecurity program to protect our customers from these unscrupulous individuals,” said Anton Bonifacio, Globe Chief Information Security Officer.

Under its filtering protocol, Globe deactivates SIMs within its network once detected to have been involved in fraud. Meanwhile, SIMs outside of the Globe network are blacklisted to prevent them from sending to Globe.

Globe Deactivates SIM Blocked

On its own, Globe has taken a proactive approach to combat cybercrime schemes through various initiatives. It has implemented blocking mechanisms, established partnerships with financial institutions for threat intelligence, created a customer reporting portal, and launched an awareness and education campaign to empower customers with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.

Meanwhile, in a move to address growing concern over the use of unregistered SIMs in committing cybercrimes, the government introduced Republic Act No. 11934, also known as the SIM (subscriber identity module) Registration Act. Signed into law in October, the measure requires all mobile and broadband users to register their SIMs with their respective service providers to ensure that they are properly identified.

As of January 25, Globe has logged 10.4 million registrations of prepaid SIMs.
