Thanks to some help from our local iNum Ambassador Kero in the Philippines, we are getting one step closer to having SMART Communications (wireless carrier) in the Philipines to implement the +883 country code for iNum direct calling.
This is still in the early developments, but as more and more carriers around the world are beginning to see who we are and what the benefits are for allowing their subscribers to call iNum numbers, we are seeing progress speeding up on the carrier side. No definite time line has been set by the company, but we are hopeful within the next couple months, they will begin routing iNum calls over their network.
If you are living in the Philippines and are a SMART Communications customer, feel free to send them an e mail to show you are also interested in making iNum calls from their network. Showing your support could only speed things up on their side.
On June 30, 2010 the company reported that it had over 45 million cellular subscribers.
Stay tuned for further iNum developments!
