Interconnection allows customers to realize savings from long-distance calls
Globe Telecom said interconnection of its landline service Globelines with its main competitor has been expanded further and is now covering the provinces of Bataan and Isabela.
The interconnection enables Globelines customers in the two provinces to call customers of other telco providers without additional charges, allowing them to realize substantial savings as they no longer have to pay for long distance charges when calling one another. The interconnection in Bataan took effect December 7 while that in Isabela took effect December 8.
Prior to the interconnection, landline customers of Globelines and other telco providers were charged with long distance rate when making phones to one another. With the interconnection, Globe customers can simply dial the seven-digit telephone number to connect with other telco providers and vice-versa.
“Globe is strongly committed in providing its customers with affordable and easily accessible ways of communication in line with our commitment for nation-building. This is why the company has been aggressively seeking to expand our interconnection with competition to include more areas and provinces in the country,” Atty. Froilan Castelo, Globe General Counsel said. Aside from its main competitor, interconnection among telco providers is in line with provisions for compulsory interconnection of authorized public telecommunications carriers under Republic Act 7925. The law aims to create a universally accessible and fully integrated nationwide telecommunications network to encourage more infrastructure investments from the private sector that would benefit the consumers.
In addition to Bataan and Isabela, Globe has existing interconnection agreement with its main competition in Metro Manila, Cavite, Iloilo, Batangas, Cebu, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, Bohol, Leyte, Davao City, Pampanga, Bulacan, Zamboanga, Laguna, Quezon, La Union, Nueva Ecija, and Benguet, GenSan/South Cotabato , Tarlac, Davao del Norte, Pangasinan, Ilocos Norte, Zambales, Ilocos Sur, Capiz, Cagayan, Nueva Viscaya and Iloilo.
