MANILA, Philippines (Update 2, 4:05 p.m.) — The first few hours of SIM registration did not go smoothly as registration portals of the two largest telecommunications companies in the country were either taken down to fix issues or bogged down by heavy traffic.


Mobile users complained that the registration portals of Globe and Smart were inaccessible almost as soon as they opened past Tuesday midnight, with many still unable to register their SIMs hours after.


Globe corporate communications head Yoly Crisanto told DZBB that they had to take down their registration portal to comply with the mandate to also include a verification process by uploading a selfie with a government-issued ID.
