Globe wireless network in northern Luzon nears 100% restoration
Libreng tawag/charging station now available in Cauayan, Isabela
As of 3:30 pm Thursday, about 95% of Globe Telecom’s total wireless network in northern Luzon are already online, enabling the company to provide critical telecommunication services in areas severely affected by Typhoon Lawin.
Following accelerated restoration efforts implemented by the company, Globe Telecom’s mobile services have been immediately restored in key areas that include Baguio, Benguet, Laoag, parts of Tuguegarao City and Cagayan including Ballesteros, Cauayan, and other areas in Isabela.
Globe assures its customers that it will continue to step up restoration efforts until voice, text, and data services are fully restored in all typhoon-hit areas.
Meanwhile, Globe also began reaching out to typhoon victims in Cauayan, Isabela by setting up a Libreng Tawag and Libreng charging station across Cauayan City Hall to assist residents who need to assure their family and friends of their safety or to request for necessary aid. The facility is available from October 20-22, 8 AM to 6 PM. —Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications.
