Globe says services restored in Antique, Biliran, Guimaras, Samar; Dinagat, Siargao, Surigao now connected

Ayala-led Globe Telecom Inc. said it has successfully restored services in Antique, Biliran, Guimaras, and Samar following the impact of Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai).

In an advisory released Wednesday, Globe said customers in these areas can now make and receive calls, and send and receive text messages to their loved ones.

Globe said it has also restored network services in Del Carmen, Siargao Island, San Jose in Dinagat Islands, Lipata Seaport, Surigao City, and Surigao Airport.

“Our teams are working tirelessly on simultaneous cell site restorations across different areas affected by typhoon Odette,” the company said.

Mobile services in several areas across the Visayas and Mindanao regions have been intermittent since Odette entered the country last week.

It left the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday after wreaking havoc in Visayas, Mindanao, and Palawan.

Globe said in the same statement that it will continue to offer free and unlimited internet access in certain malls, government offices, and airports throughout the Visayas and Mindanao regions.

Additional Libreng Tawag and Libreng Charging (LTLC) stations have been set up in Palawan and Mindanao, with operations continuing in the Visayas.

More information on the stations is available on the firm’s social media accounts. — VBL, GMA News
