0945 What network

What network is 0945? Mobile numbers starting in 0945 (or +63945) is either Globe or TM (also known as TM Tambayan and formerly known as Touch Mobile).

Mobile users within the Philippines can use either 0945 or +63945. However, mobile users abroad can only contact mobile numbers in the Philippines using the country code +63.

At first glance of the prefix (0945 or +63945) and without asking the owner of the mobile number, one cannot determine which among the two networks a number with such prefix belongs to.

Why, you may ask?

This is because Globe Telecom, Inc., the company that owns the network Globe, is the same company that launched TM back in 2001. This means that they have essentially the same parent company operating both networks.

This further means that promo inclusions offered by these networks may be exclusive within these two networks alone. Or at least calling and/or texting mobile numbers belonging to these networks will cost significantly lower than calling and/or texting numbers from other networks such as Smart, TNT, or Sun Cellular. For example, TM offers TXT10 promo, which allows its subscribers to send unlimited texts to Globe and TM users only.

Quick Recap on Mobile Number Prefixes in the Philippines:

Mobile number prefixes refer to the first four digits of any mobile phone number in the Philippines following the 09xxxxxxxxx format. If using the country code (+63), just replace the 0 with +63 such that the number becomes +639xxxxxxxxx. The prefix then becomes +63 followed by the next three digits.
