The Philippine mobile number usually starts with 9 and followed by 3 digits. The wrong misconception about this code is to indicate the geographic. The truth is, it doesn’t mean that way. It means that each number belongs to a specific service provider. That’s why when you get the hang of each of them, it’s easier to tell the network someone is using.

Back then, there were particular codes for different telecoms or service provider. For example, Express Telecom used 973, Globe (GSM) was 917, Islam was 915, Mobiline (CDMA) was 912, while Smart got 918. People used these numbers for several years. The owner of Smart was Eastern Telecoms until PLDT bought it a long time ago. On the other hand, Globe telecom acquired Islacom. Due to the rapid growth of telecommunication companies starting from the year 1990s, there must be new codes to reach the people’s demand.

So, which of these telecommunication networks works best? Actually, the answer depends on your location. I don’t have the accuracy to tell which has the fastest speed out of them all. However, the big telecoms among them are Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Globe. The list we’ve provided a change from time to time. Therefore, we can give updates when new ones appear.
