As for those who do not have access to the internet, Cabarios said the Department of Information and Communications Technology, telcos and other government agencies can help with registration.

The DITO Company promised to make the process simple and called “painless” for their subscribers to register.

The companies advised the public to look out for the announcement of the upcoming process on their respective social media pages.
