Globe conducts routine scanning for these illegal devices. If there is an identified user from one of these scans, Globe will provide the results to the NTC for their appropriate action.
An NTC representative shall then visit the location, advise the owner to turn off and dismantle the repeater. If the owner voluntarily turns off and dismantles the repeater, Globe won't pursue any case against them. If the owner doesn't comply, the NTC will issue a Show Cause order to compel the surrender of the repeater by the owner.
According to NTC Memorandum Order No. 01-02-2013, the sale, purchase, importation, possession, or use of cellular mobile repeaters and portable cell sites is illegal. Based on the Public Service Act, use or operation of illegal repeaters is punishable under the existing Philippine laws.
