The amendment of the memorandum Circular No. 03-07-2009 was inked by Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) last December 20, 2017.

Globe Telecoms
On January 6, 2018, Globe already went ahead to implement one year validity for prepaid loads but only for those bought 300 pesos or higher. Today, all other prepaid denominations from the said telecom will now be valid for one year as well.

The one year validity was supposed to apply starting January 5, 2018 but both firms asked for an extension - which the DICT granted.
