Philippines, 1990

In this country, several prepaid phone card systems are currently in use, but the first public-line telephone system to be installed, in 1990, was the Japanese Tamura, which then also provided the first issues, a series of 5 ordinary cards with values 50, 100, 200, 300 and 500 units. A year later, the GPT system began to operate, and later, the chipcard system.
